Thumbs down    Mods, can we get unlike buttons yet? 

Thats pretty much what I figured. That they had some vendetta or score to settle. I'm all for players having critics and naysayers because that's what creates discussion around here. But if you're gon

Where is this?? Not seeing it.

 

Just making fun of that garbage publication that is wrong way more often than it is right

 

Gurley should 100% be the MVP and if Tom Brady gets it it will just be because the NFL is a sellout to QBs

Todd Gurley is MVP and it's not even close.

 

There's a ton of ways this argument goes. What Brady supporters will say is that it is the most valuable player to the team. So what players team will suffer the most without them? Even with that logic, it's not Brady. It would be Wilson. The MVP award should be a combination of wins + impact + overall dominance. 

 

The Patriots have also shown they can succeed with anyone at QB. So even using that metric he is not the most valuable.

Yes, because succeeding is winning meaningless regular season games and missing out on the playoffs lol... but I agree that Gurley should be MVP.  I'm not sure why Brady's name is even mentioned, and that's as a huge Pats fan.  He hasn't done anything special this season IMO.  Gurley, Wentz, Wilson, and a few others should have their names mentioned in the running.

By that logic, MVP should go to Aaron Rodgers as we saw what happens to the Packers when he can't play.

 

Meanwhile, we've seen what happens when Patriots go without Brady.

As someone known in these parts as being not the biggest fan of Brady, he certainly has had a MVP-caliber season: http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/page/Barnwellx171225/case-todd-gurley-2017-nfl-mvp-why-tom-brady-favorite-award

What an absolutely silly and terrible straw man.

 

Them missing the playoffs that year was insanely unfortunate. They won 11 games. Only two teams ever missed playoffs at 11-5. In fact, they won more games that year than the year right after with Tom Brady. Come again.

Peep the schedule. They didn't beat good teams.

 

 

 

Cassell made the Pro Bowl after he left too. Not like it was Ryan Mallett. You sir are the one with the silly argument.

I think his point was that, regardless of which backup QB started, the Patriots still have played very well without Brady - indicating that their system is a major factor in their continued success.

 

Why is Mallett even relevant to the conversation?  He barely even saw the field for the Pats?

And my point, is that his point is wrong. 

 

They had one of the easiest schedules of all  time that season and Cassell had a long career. Jimmy G looks legit as well. Hell even Brissett  had some good games this year.

It's almost as if QBs that spend time in NE are developed very well by a system...

I think they had about the 25th-toughest SOS of any team just that year.  Out of curiosity, where are you coming up with  “easiest of all time”?

 

Sure, Jimmy G and Jacoby Brissett have looked pretty solid to good in limited starts - but are they future HOFers?  Does the fact that no QB has left a successful stint in NE only to be abjectly awful mean that his claim is false - i.e., non-Brady QBs also have success in that system?

Right, you are free to have that opinion.It's just wrong, and I'm trying to inform you of such.

Also, their SOS that year was 28. It was easy but you claim it was one of the easiest all time yet it wasn't even bottom 3 that year. This year their SOS is 23 not too far off from that year. Rams is 6th.

 

I ask again, how is Brady MVP? Please try and use facts and not silly straw men and just false information.
