The fans have spoken, and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady bested Colts quarterback Peyton Manning in the AFC by more than 700,000 votes.
But the fan votes count for only 33 percent of the outcome. The other two thirds are supplied by players and by coaches.
And Brady didn’t get a vote from Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs.
Suggs told Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports that Suggs voted for Philip Rivers, Manning, and Ryan Fitzpatrick in the first-place, second-place, and third-place ballot.
So why not Brady? “I’m pretty sure he didn’t vote for me, either,” Suggs said.
It’s Suggs’ latest assault on Brady, whom Suggs apparently despises. Last week, Suggs declared that Saints quarterback Drew Brees is better than Brady or Manning. If nothing else, it should make for an even more intriguing matchup in the postseason, if the Ravens and Pats get together again.
