    Manning AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    Passes for 319 yards 25-35 in perfect conditions against a joke of a Defense. Brady or McFadden deserve this award.

    Re: Manning AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    Because the Colts needed the win more and he "rose" from the dead of his dreadful play these last few weeks may be the biggest factors.  I am certain if it was him in Chicago those numbers would be way down and he wouldn't even sniff at anything close to what Brady did.  Besides, it may be a sympathy vote and Brady already won two weeks in a row.

     Finally the mystery of why Manning wears kneepads is solved.

    bill makes a pretty good point.

    As long as there is somebody else equally (or marginally) worthy, it makes sense not to give it to the same guy every week.


    That . . .   and who gives a sh*t about the "Offensive Player of the Week?"

    Brady goes to Chicago, plays in an arctic hurricane, throws for over 300 yards, multiple touchdowns, against a very good Bears defense and Manning is offensive player of the week?  Oh well......

    I get not wanting to give it to the same guy every week but Brady deserved it for what he did in Chicago in that weather.  It doesnt get any better then that.

    Too right on both points. Meaningless distinction designed to give the press a paragraph or 2 and the cable TV channels  2 minutes of airtime filler.

    Sounds like the joke of the week to me. Those two performances are not even in the same level.

    Doesn't this just prove the point, though? The second Brady assumes the position as clearly the best, the media does anything it can to try to prop Gomer back up again.

    So predictable.

    And not debatable. There are too many examples of this kind of thing.

    So true. 

    It is marketing.   There is no drama in knowing that one team in the league stands far above the others, or one player stands far above his peers at the same position.  If you have ever doubted that the league has delt the Pats a bad deal during the years of 2005-2009 - that they care enough for parity to enforce it by taking the Pats down by notches - this selection should lend insight.

    It's great for New England when they win and Brady shines.  It is not great for the NFL as a whole. It means lost revenue when jerseys and tickets don't sell in other markets.  It means the TV contracts are worth less.

    Think about that 2005 Pats-Bronco play-off game.

    Think about that 2006 Pats-Colts play-off game.

    Think about those games at the end of the 2007 regular season.

    I remember the pivotal calls/non-calls.  I don't believe they happened without forthought to keep the Pats down. Same with these stupid awards, or when rival players cheap shot our team's players but are not fined.  

    Best thing to do is to watch the games each week appreciating how good our team and its players are performing, even if the forces-that-be will undermine them a few times a month.

    No big deal.  Brady is going to win MVP.  In a few days nobody will remember Manning won this award.

    Consider that the media knows that outside of Pats fans any positive stories about Brady are likely to get the viewer to change the channel. Besides giving Brady the award again nothing to him. Nor does the publicity. That's why you don't see him on TV wearing cotton ball shoulder pads. This is commerce with a capitol C involving billions of dollars

    Not to mention the Colts are looking more and more like their playoff push is gonna come up short, meaning this is the only thing Manning is winning this year.

    Agreed that it is really not a big deal, but I do think agc has a point.  Also, don't forget that one of Manning's own receivers successfully defensed a certain touchdown pass because he didn't know what the he11 he was doing.

    I know this would be a tough sell, but Schaub put together a ridiculous second half against a legitimate Ravens' defense.  

    First half wasn't so good, but I've never seen the Ravens D as gassed as they were in that second half.  Had the Texans won the game, you can make an argument for Schaub.

    The sports media are so arrogant and dumb that they think that they can create reality.

    There is no doubt about this concept.  Chris is also correct.

    We all know this is about money and people are far less jealous of Gomer and the Colts than they are the Pats.

    It's that simple.

    Can't say I'm surprised by this but Brady turned in the best offensive performance of the year when you take conditions into account. Ah well I only care about the ring and I think Brady feels the same...

    Given the way Brady has been playing of late, it may take a high 300 to 400+ yards passing game with 4 - 5 TDs before Brady sniffs this recognition again.

    Tex...
    When you saw the first scenes at the beginning of the Bears game, blowing snow, snow tornadoes and all, would you have guessed Brady would wind up throwing for almost 400 yards, no INTs and 2 TDs?  Add to that this all against a Bears D many said would be able to slow down the Pats given the conditions? And somehow the Manning performance in a dome overdshadowed this?

    Re: Manning AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    There should be 2 awards in all the major sports, a player of the year, and Peyton would win it every year because he has great stats, and they should change most of his MVPs to Player of the Year. Or Barry Bonds, whose 7 all or most should have been player of the year, The MVP is the player who influences his team with tangibles and intangibles, inspiring his team to play better, he goes beyond stats to do what is best for the team, and the Brady's, Montana's, Russell the MVP of all time, and of course KG when the Celts won it all as he changed the whole face of the franchise the moment he stepped up to the podium after he signed.  Many say he lost his chance to be the MVP because the Celts still played great when he missed those 8-10 games in midseason, but I say he was such and inspiration, that the team responded to his team spirit and just kept winning.

    Brady embodies all of this, but in sports today, stats seem to be the criteria for being an MVP.  BB showed Brady all the MVPs in all the sports over the years though mostly BB showed the football MVPs and showed Tom how the MVP rarely wins it all, so in the end it has become a meaningless trophy.

    So Tom and the all great ones realize that there is only one real trophy and that is winning it all.  So the only other award that has any real merit would be the SB & the Finals MVP.

    These players couldn't care less about stats!

    And as the late Great Redhead of the men in Green, BB, and the truly great coaches say:

    Stats are for losers!
