2nd Team Getting Their First Start
People talk about Brees getting screwed, but he really only had 2009, 2011, 2018 as MVP level seasons.2016 was bs. Most other publications gave Brady MVP but not the AP. He won as many games as Ryan despite a four game handicap. Ryan finishing #10 for NFL Top 100, voted by the players, is all you need to know.
At least in 2017 he won despite not having a spectacular year by his standards…somewhat balances it out.
Brady had 2008, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016. Yeah I'm counting 2008 because a guy who went 12-4 with a 27/12 ratio won.
Also Brady should have at least been 1st Team All-Pro in 2012. His running backs had 21 TD's compared to 7 for Rodgers and 12 for Manning. He also played the most difficult schedule of defenses out of the three.
