    What's really cool is that Revis and Ray Lewis introduced him.

    I think it's fair. He's done more with less and more with more too in 2007 and 2010. He still has 3 rings to Peyton's 1.

    The right pick. I think the offense will be even better this year, Welker will be far more comfortable on that knee, Gronk and Hernandez will each have a year of pro experience uner their belt, Price could be a factor. Not to mention the youth movement at RB, that's a lot of young legs back there, the opponets will have to respect it more this year.

    No surprise to me.  As good as Manning is, I don't think he can inspire his teammates like Brady can.  That's probably the difference.  Manning is a great on-field manager, but Brady is a true leader.  Manning will make all the right calls and put his teammates in the right positions to make plays . . . but Brady will inspire his teammates to want to fight and die to win.

    He's got more rings and he now has a better QB rating. Therefore he's a better QB I don't know why people think otherwise it's not rocket science Tongue out

    I love how Tom spent virtually the entire interview giving all of the credit to his teammates and coaches. That's really what sets him apart from a lot of the big time QBs today(Jay Cutler, I am looking at you).

    If I could pin point one quality of all his qualities it's the undying need to win. Gotta love that in a sports person he just never stops, simply relentless. Im not sure I know of another sports person in the world with so much sucess who still craves more as though it's his first day in the league. We're truely blessed to have him!!

    You hit the nail on the head. I don't believe Manning was "dissed" for being #2. Great he may be, but Brady seems to fire up his guys better. Maybe that is because he's always praising them in the press rather than throwing them "under the bus"! Just an "intangible", but he's got that in spades. And Tom does have high expectations for himself. I can't see him wanting to hang it up until he's got five rings. He certainly doesn't seem to have slowed down (or have any lingering effects from his injured knee), especially when you look at last season. We as Patriots fans truly are blessed to have this guy as our own. Ray was spot on, and surprisingly Revis was quite respectful. I'm sure Fat Rex didn't write his speech for him! I also think Revis should have been more like 4 or 5 on the list. Hate him as a Jest, but the guy is the best CB I've seen since Prime...in his prime. Maybe when he becomes a FA he'd like to move north to a real winning team! If Tom had come in second to Manning I'd believe the votes were rigged. The fan vote was overwhelming in his favor, but I put more stock into the opinions of the guys he plays with and (especially) against!

    Tom Brady is the best and his peers picked him #1.  And the always classy Tom Brady said on NFL Network that he thinks Peyton Manning is the best of all time and gives credit to all his teammates and coaching for what he's become.  Brady is the man!  Good for him!

    Re: Players Select Brady as NFL's Top Player

    brady being voted #1 should be a no brainer.  last time i checked winning was the most important thing.  and i have to say when it comes down to it brady has the balls to put his team on his back and carry them to victory with alot less then the choke artist peyton manning who is i think one of the more over rated players around.  Look at the talent he has had surounding him and what only 1 super bowl?? hmm brady has 3 and didnt ever really have a #1 until moss.  The guy is a competitor like no other in the league and anyone who thinks manning is on his level is wrong.  looks like rogers is developing and also as much as i hate him rothlisberger even wins more then manning( prob cuz hes a choke artist)
