Patriots Branch Named Super Bowl MVP
BY: Ian Logue/PatsFans.com
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch was named Super Bowl MVP on Sunday night, ending teammate Tom Brady’s streak at two after Brady earned the accolade twice during each of the Patriots last two Super Bowl victories.
“He’s a very dynamic player,” Brady told ESPN.com of his teammate. “He can do it all -- getting open, doing great things after he caught the ball.”
While the talk had focused on Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens this week and how important it would be for him to be on the field in this game, apparently the talk irritated Branch who also told ESPN he feels he’s a good enough receiver to be mentioned among some of the best in the NFL.
“All the hoopla was about T.O.,” said Branch. “He’s a great player. He really sucked it up tonight. But I want to show I have the same type of talent as those guys.”
He’s got the talent, and he’s also got something that for now T.O. doesn’t have.
A Super Bowl MVP Trophy.
