League hands out Week One hardware

The NFL has named its Players of the Week for the first week of the 2009 regular season.

And here they are.

In the AFC, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the offensive player of the week for the 13th time in his career.  He last won the award for the last full regular-season game he played, in Week Seventeen of the 2007 season.

Jets linebacker David Harris is the AFC defensive player of the week.  He made 12 tackles and produced a sack in New York’s 24-7 win at Houston.  He’s the first Jet to win the award since 2004.

Steelers kicker Jeff Reed won the AFC special teams player of the week award for the fourth time in his career.  Reed’s field goal in overtime delivered a Week One win for the Steelers.

In the NFC, Saints quarterback Drew Brees edged out Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and others for the offensive player of the week honors.  Brees won the award three times in 2008, and he has now been named offensive player of the week in either conference ten times in his career.

Giants defensive end Justin Tuck is the NFC defensive player of the week.  He had five tackles and 1.5 sacks in a 23-17 win over the Redskins.

Eagles receiver/return specialist DeSean Jackson is the NFC special teams player of the week, thanks to an 85-yard punt return for a touchdown in the team’s 38-10 win over the Panthers.

    Brady? Are you serious? I am a huge Pats fan, and I think Brady mastered a great comeback, but he also made a LOT of mistakes out there in the first half. There are more deserving players.

    Brady suck

  3. DanSnyder says: Sep 16, 2009 8:08 PM

    I’m sure Justin tuck earned it but I wish London Fletcher would get some love. He had 18 tackles against the Giants and on almost every tackle on Brandon Jacobs he knocked Jacobs back. Fletcher almost all by himself shut down jacobs. Jacobs finished wih 16 rushes for 46 yards.
    That feat is a helluva lot harder then sacking and stripping Jason Campbell =(

    How did Brady beat out Brees and AP for Player of the Week? East Coast Bias is ridiculous!

  6. jshawaii says: Sep 16, 2009 8:11 PM

    what the F… is Peter King giving out the awards??? Tom Brady over Drew Brees??? They are all joking.

  7. TSE says: Sep 16, 2009 8:13 PM

    Sounds like the real story here is a conspiracy of some sorts.
    How can Tuck get the honor if he only had 1 more tackle and one half sack more than Osi, considering Osi also had an FF AND 37 yards on a return AND a TD score?

  8. Outsyder says: Sep 16, 2009 8:13 PM

    The punt return was 85 yards, which is 2nd in franchise history.

  9. War Machine says: Sep 16, 2009 8:23 PM

    “Tom Brady is the offensive player of the week”. That would be, I presume, for telekinetically forcing that fumble at the end of the game on Monday.

  10. DildoBaggins says: Sep 16, 2009 8:23 PM

    Tom Brady played good for 5 minutes and he gets player of the week?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    Proof that these things mean absolutely nothing.

  11. City_Native says: Sep 16, 2009 8:23 PM

    Not a big deal . . . but Patrick Willis had 13 tackles and 1 interception. He should of been the winner.

    Tom Brady …… isn’t he that guy who’s supposed to be rusty and gimpy, nervous about stepping up into the pocket, playing behind a broken down O-line ……. THAT Tom Brady? I heard he’s gonna suck this year.

    …it wasn’t given by the AP and Drew Brees doesn’t play in the AFC, genius.

    LOL!
    Yep, the Bills lost that game the Patriots didn’t win it.
    The love for the Brady bunch in the league and the media is beyond revolting.
    In a related note: Carl Cheffers was awarded official of the week for displaying ineptitude above and beyond what most other officials do on a weekly basis.

  16. dcgioia says: Sep 16, 2009 8:55 PM

    “Tom Brady played good for 5 minutes and he gets player of the week?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”
    …Kinda hard to believe that someone could accumulate 378 yards on 39 completions in 5 minutes of “playing good”.
    Keep hating, I’ll stand behind the numbers that Tom will keep putting up.

  17. mad555 says: Sep 16, 2009 8:58 PM

    I don’t know who told you, D Jax PR was 87 yards, and a Eagles’ team record, but he only returned it for 85 yards and it was not a team record, it was 2nd best only to the man, the myth, the legend.

    Do you ever get the feeling some people don’t read the whole posting before spouting off? Yes, I’m looking at you people who are upset Brady got AFC Offesive Player of the Week over Drew Brees… who merely got the NFC Offesive Player of the Week award.
    What an injustice!

  20. stanjam says: Sep 16, 2009 9:02 PM

    Of course, the obligatory hate comments.
    Heck, Brady is a great player, without a doubt one of the best to ever play the position. Monday night we saw a glimpse of that. That doesn’t mean though that he deserves this honor any more than Rodgers, or whatever his name is for the Packers. He was rusty, and for a lot of the came he wouldn’t plant under pressure. He got over it, which is great. He will likely have a great year, which is awesome. I am sure he will be a big part of the Pats getting deep into the playoffs and maybe, God willing, into the Superbowl. I repeat my earlier post: He does not deserve this award this week. He simply was too ineffective early on.

  21. Fan_Of_ Four says: Sep 16, 2009 9:05 PM

    What a rip….Favre didn’t retire and didn’t throw a single pick wearing purple.
    Schism

  22. Route36West says: Sep 16, 2009 9:12 PM

    I think Sheldon Brown should have beat out Justin Tuck for NFC Defensive Player of the week. He had 2 tackles 2 pass defensed and 2 interceptions. But Tuck had a good game to I guess he deserves it too. I just think if Sheldon didnt get those picks when he did the game could have turned out totally different. The Panthers could have been up 14 nothing after the 1st one and 21-3 after the second one which could have gave Delomme confidence. Momentum is a huge thing in the NFL and if Sheldon didnt get those picks early like he did the Panthers would of had it all. The Eagles might not have stood a chance if Sheldon didnt get those Picks.
    Also you people are nuts its not saying Brady beat out Brees for player of the week. It says Brady got AFC player of the week and Brees got NFC player of the week and that Brees beat out Peterson not Brady. But I do agree with uses on one thing Brady deffently does not deserve it he looked terrible for most of the game until the final 5 minutes when the MOMENTUM changed but not b/c of what the Pats did but b/c of what the bills didnt do. If anybody should have got AFC offensive player of the week it should of been Santonio Holmes he dominated the Titans and in my opinion was the reason the Steelers won. But because the game was played on thursday and he’s not a QB he was over looked.

  23. 2brauneyz says: Sep 16, 2009 9:16 PM

    Friggin’ morons here… Reread the post and you will see that Brady was named AFC offensive and Brees WAS named NFC offensive POW. Also named were defensive and special teams players for both conferences for you truly braindead out there.
    Read, people, read!

    You’re bragging that your team barely beat the Bills? And they ONLY reason they won was because the jackass didn’t take a knee? Really? Wow. A NE fan has hit a new high for overall stupidity. You should crapping in your Pampers over that performance. Your D made Trent Edwards look like Joe Montana and Fred Jackson look like Marshall Faulk. What’s next, you’re a guaranteed Super Bowl winner if you can beat the Jets rookie QB?

  26. FloriosHairHat says: Sep 16, 2009 9:21 PM

    Brady over Brees?
    I see John Madden’s influence (read: TB suckfest) in the NFL front office has begun.
    Next week: Brett Favre, whether he blows or not.

    More bogus hardware for Brady*.

  28. Br0wnstone says: Sep 16, 2009 9:24 PM

    Did I read these comments right?
    Did 2 people just complain that Brady won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week over Drew Brees?
    When did the Saints join the AFC?
    “That would be, I presume, for telekinetically forcing that fumble at the end of the game on Monday.”
    Exactly, because after he telekinetically forced the fumble… he used the Force to throw for 378 yards and 2 touchdowns

  29. east96st says: Sep 16, 2009 9:25 PM

    DanSnyder says: “I’m sure Justin tuck earned it but I wish London Fletcher would get some love.”
    You’re right. Fletcher had a monster game and was the only reason the score wasn’t a blowout. While I’m happy that Tuck got recognized (unlike the Super Bowl), Fletcher deserved the award.

  32. bednarik60 says: Sep 16, 2009 9:38 PM

    Brady? That’s a joke. Tuck did well, but a number of other players did better as some of the other commenters have mentioned. Thought I’d throw in my two:
    Sheldon Brown: Two picks, two pass defenses.
    Akeem Jordan: Five tackles, one sack, one pass defense, one interception

  33. leatherneck says: Sep 16, 2009 9:39 PM

    AFC Quarterback ratings:
    Brodie Croyle 116.1, no INTs
    Kyle Orton 100.7, no INTs
    Trent Edwards 114.1, no INTs
    Tom Brady 97.8, 1 INT, lots of bad throws, and AFC Offensive Player of the Week!

  34. as big as a hat says: Sep 16, 2009 9:49 PM

    The League should not be handing out awards, lest Kanye West show up on stage and call BS on the white chick. Brees was better than Brady, and that LB from SF is better than anybody on the other side of the ball. Richard Seymour should get honorable mention for showing up a day and a half before the opener and earning his pay.

  35. NewYorkJetsFan says: Sep 16, 2009 10:04 PM

    @ leatherneck
    Brodie Croyle and Trent Edwards lost their games.
    Kyle Orton should’ve lost, and if you take away his miracle touchdown, that rating takes a hit.
    And even though I hate Tom Brady, he came up big in the last 5 minutes of that game by throwing two touchdown passes.
    Can’t say I blame them for giving to Brady.
    And quarterback rating is one of the most overrated stats ever… see Chad Pennington.

  36. meezle says: Sep 16, 2009 10:08 PM

    Being and eagles fan of course I think sheldon should have won, but also london fletcher deserves consideration.
    Screw justin tuck, fletcher is the best all around middle linebacker in the nfc, very underrated

  37. Beezer says: Sep 16, 2009 10:16 PM

    Bednarik by any chance are you an eagles fan lol? Tuck also had two tackles for a loss and was in Campbell’s face all game.
    leatherneck the QB rating is the most overrated stat for measuring a QB’s performance. While i agree Brady should not have won you can’t go by QB rating. For example in week one Jason Campbell had a 93.6 QB rating while Eli had a 93.5. Anyone who watched the game, besides Florio, would admit that Eli greatly outplayed Campbell.

  38. Beezer says: Sep 16, 2009 10:19 PM

    meezle, London Fletcher may be the most underrated MLB in the NFC but he is not the best. Patrick Willis is better than him.

  39. RouteX says: Sep 16, 2009 10:30 PM

    Really, a player of the week is about stats, so Brees deserves it hands down. Hilarious that ESPN, etc’s golden boy gets it. Rivers had a much more difficult road to get his team a victory (not a short field post fumble), and all the media treats his 90 yard drive as an afterthought, but Tom Terrific shows up, period, and he’s the headline. Similar to the love Cutler gets – great arm, average (at best) QB, but of course he’s going to the pro bowl. UGH

    Roethlisberger put up a way gutsier performance compared to bradys one good quarter. And cribbs should have got special for sure. Whoever plays the lions this year will automatically get offensive player of the week.

  43. this class sucks says: Sep 16, 2009 10:48 PM

    The Patrick Willis point was good. To be fair what moron put Brees ahead of Brady Tom Brady did throw 6 TDs and Brees over threw his WR’s all night and only won because of a fumble.

  44. Richm2256 says: Sep 16, 2009 11:11 PM

    @east96st: “You’re bragging that your team barely beat the Bills? And they ONLY reason they won was because the jackass didn’t take a knee? Really? Wow. A NE fan has hit a new high for overall stupidity. You should crapping in your Pampers over that performance. Your D made Trent Edwards look like Joe Montana and Fred Jackson look like Marshall Faulk.”
    And the Bill’s defense made New England look like what those last five minutes? Oh, made them look like the three time Super Bowl champs that they are!
    No dickweed, I’m bragging because Tom Brady shook off the rust and did what Tom Brady does better than any frigging QB since Montana; overcame an 11 point deficit with two scores in five damn minutes. This, after all you dimbulbs out here had him one foot in the football grave.
    And you’re showing your lack of knowledge of the game in blaming the return man, ignoring two simple facts:
    1) even if he had downed the ball, there was enough time on the clock and enough TO’s for New England to force the Bills 3 and out and still have time for the two drives they ultimately won with. All dude did was give them a head start on their first drive, instead of receiving a punt in their own half of the field. And people, PLEASE, remember that this wasn’t an incidental fumble, it was a STRIP. An intentional (and successful!) act by a defender.
    2)Even though he coughed up the football, that didn’t seal the Bills’ doom. THEY LOST BECAUSE THE DEFENSE COULDN’T STOP TWO DRIVES BY THE PATRIOTS!!!!! Two drives that were pure wonder, which – given the fact that many of you had him all washed up – is exactly why Brady deserved the award this week. He hasn’t played an NFL down in one year, and he sets the passing total for the week!
    Yeah, I’m scared. Give me those diapers!
    Our defense is suspect right now but the Bills defense on those two drives made them look like the Steel Curtain of the 70s by comparison. And they’ll get better with every game they’re together.
    With Brady engineering two drives in five minutes like that after a one year layoff, and a defense that is going to get better every single week, I’d say Pat’s fans have no need for those Pampers. Let’s compare teams around week eight, shall we? I’ll keep the Pampers safe for you.

  45. Majik Man says: Sep 16, 2009 11:17 PM

    What about Joe Flacco. 300+ yards, and 3 TD’s to Brady’s 2, and the game winner with 2 minutes left. And he’s not throwing it to Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Brady may put up 370 yards, but at least 150 of those were YAC. The master of the dink and dunk strikes again.

  46. dave says: Sep 16, 2009 11:42 PM

    brady was the last thing voters saw (doubt they stayed up to see rivers lead a comeback..plus brady had better stats)
    if not for brady’s comeback aided in large part by meriweather’s strip, flacco wins it easily IMO

  47. Cleric John Preston says: Sep 16, 2009 11:43 PM

    Brady getting that award is a joke.
    You got my boy Flacco going for 3 TDs and 300 yards, but Brady gets the aware when he played like crap most of the game and, like the poster above mentioned, most his yards are YAC from bs screen plays.
    Cue the Patriots fan who wants to say it was just the Chiefs.
    We newsflash, it was just the Bills. You were SUPPOSED to win handily according to the Pundits. Instead, you got frickin’ lucky that a returner just didn’t take a knee.
    I was watching Around the Horn and PTI, and all these fools are saying Pats fans should be ENCOURAGED!?!?!?! by Monday’s events? Are you shitting me?
    They should be concerned of the beatdown coming when my Ravens come to town.
    Pats offense was all spygate smoke and mirrors. Bills had them beat, but then just beat themselves.

    ______________________________________
    So what is your point? Did Flacco throw for 300 yards with only 10 of them YAC? Do you rationalize that as “my QB has less YAC and his receivers suck so he’s the man?” Is that as new standard you made up that makes Flacco the player of the week?

  49. TheSleepingGiant says: Sep 17, 2009 12:01 AM

    redskins fans really need to give it up. london fletcher? good linebacker, not the best mlb in the conference. ever hear of patrick willis?
    your team lost. osi and tuck were more dominant than fletch. get over it.

    Richm2256 says: “Our defense is suspect right now but the Bills defense on those two drives made them look like the Steel Curtain of the 70s by comparison.”
    Thus, proving you are a moron. Everyone knew going in, buffalo didn’t have a defense. There was never any mystery about that. The question is why did it take a fumble for you assclowns to finally exploit it? As for “we would have won even without the fumble”… BULLS**T. Jackson and Edwards easily would have picked up a first down based on the fact that your D made them look like HOFs all night long. The only time your D did anything was when Buffalo HAD to pass because they were behind. You never would have had the time on the clock to win. Finally, 3 time champion New England Patriots – you’re living in the past douche. Those days are gone. Pats last Super Bowl appearance was the greatest upset in the history of the Super Bowl. Your O line folded like the overated POS they are and NY kicked your ass. Super Bowl record without illegal videotaping 0-1. “Talk to me at week 8″ Congrats – you play in the AFC Least so you get six free wins a year. How about we talk when it matters – playoff time when your boys can’t hide behind playing Miami or Buffalo. McKelvin won’t be there to bail you out then.

  51. Dugan says: Sep 17, 2009 12:59 AM

    I want to know why that return wasn’t blown dead once the returners foward progress came to a hault? He was held up and in place while other hacked away at the ball for a solid 4-5 seconds. I’ve seen the same situation called dead over and over again and the fumbles always get recalled.

  56. Ihatelawers says: Sep 17, 2009 9:46 AM

    Brady? Edwards had a better QB rating, more yards per attempt, and was the winning QB – albeit before McKelvin handed the game back to the Patriots.

  57. scooter7 says: Sep 17, 2009 9:50 AM

    Seriously, 95% of the people who comment on this site are (or just seem) so ridiculously uneducated, or have this uncanny ability to post comments BEFORE reading the entire contents of a story. You idiots need to get back on the short bus and go to school.
    For the nitwit who had the b@llz to suggest Stokley shold have gotten the AFC PoW, you’re stoned beyond belief. The TD was his ONLY catch. Give him player of the game, since no one else in that abortion of a game deserved it.
    Kyle Orton? Please, he had thrown for a paltry 156 yards and 0 TD before that miracle completion.
    Brodie Croyle? He completed 16 passes, and the ONLY good part of his stat line was 66.7 % completions. And his team lost.
    Flacco had one of the better statistical days besides Brady, but he maaged to complete only 60.5% of his passes. Not exactly lighting the world on fire.
    Now the facts on Brady:
    He completed 73.6% of his passes, and 82.4% (14-for-17) in the 4th quarter alone with 2 TDs.
    He led his team from an 11-point deficit against a divison rival that won 7 games last year, and has a defensive coach (Dom Capers) who was in New England last year.
    He won his after not playing an entire game for 19 months.
    As for the 50+ attempts, Brady is a master of makming it a successful took for the Pats. Take a look at this nugget from CHFF:
    “In the entire history of the NFL, quarterbacks who attempt 50-plus passes are a pathetic 73-260-6 (.224) in the regular season. Brady, meanwhile, is 5-2 (.714) in the regular season when attempting 50-plus passes.”
    Take a look all 5 QBs and their stats for the game, and in the fourth quarter:
    Game:
    Brady, 39-53, 73.6, 378, 2-1
    Croyle 16-24, 66.7, 177 yds, 2-0
    Orton, 17-28, 60.7, 243, 1-0
    Flacco, 26-43, 60.5, 307, 3-1
    Edwards, 15-25, 60.0, 212, 2-0
    4th Qtr:
    Brady 14-17, 2 TD
    Orton 7-9, TD
    Flacco 6-9, TD
    Edwards, 5-9, TD
    Croyle 6-11, TD
    Even as an impartial observer, I can’t argue the selection of Brady as AFC PoW. Flacco may have had the best case for an alternate selection, but it was Brady who led a(nother) 4th-quarter comeback and threw 2 TD passes in the clutch.
    This is why Brady (who remains the best QB in the NFL) will eventually be a 1st-ballot Hall-of-Famer. Let Flacco prove himself in the clutch before we annoint him the next Johnny Unaitis.

    Glad the Hall of Fame is now open to single game performances of less that 100 yards rushing, and less than 200 yards passing. They really lit it up in Foxoboro Monday Night.
    If not for those 2 ridiculous Roughing the Passer calls that have their only 2 scoring drives in the 2nd half stall. Which in turn would have put them down and the still would have HAD to pass… looking like s**t it the end.

    378 yards passing, 39 for 54 at a 73% clip and two TDs…yeah that sucked.
    And some of you geniuses need to learn how to read. One, Brees in the NFC…Two, he did win for the NFC.
    Jesus, I swear some of you morons read ‘Brady’ and go into full hate mode and not even read the friggin’ article.
    Even mrmagoo, a known Pats/Brady hater shoots down Flacco. Who did have a solid game. But the Bills D is a bit more cohesive than the Chiefs.
    East96st…Are you saying the Jets having a rookie QB will dimish a potential win by the Pats? Even though the Jets D has everyone’s attention, Tom Jones and Leon Washington as RBs…you’re saying that if the Pats win this game it still doesn’t show them as a good team?
    I will give you credit on the division strength as the NFC East is certainly one of the strongest, but the AFC East is not the AFC/NFC West…get a clue.

    “He led his team from an 11-point deficit against a divison rival that won 7 games last year, and has a defensive coach (Dom Capers) who was in New England last year.”
    Here’s a little education lesson for you: Dom Capers is the Defensive Coordinator for the Green Bay Packers. Perry Fewell is the Defensive Coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. Just thought I’d let you know!

    What a shock, Mr. Bundchen never ceases to get his ass kisssed by all that is the NFL…makes you wanna puke, doesn’t it? He gets credit for a short field comeback due to an idiot putting himself before the team and not taking a knee.
    Please Jets, take him out so we no longer have to live through this injustice!
