Tom Brady aiming for rare double: regular season MVP, Super Bowl MVP

Getty Images

If Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wins the Super Bowl LII Most Valuable Player award tonight, he’ll join some rare company.

Brady would become just the seventh player in NFL history to win the Associated Press regular season MVP award, and then follow that up with the Super Bowl MVP the same season.

It hasn’t been done this century: Rams quarterback Kurt Warner was the last player to do it, winning the MVP for the 1999 season and then leading the Rams to the Super Bowl XXXIV title and winning that game’s MVP award as well.

The other players to win Super Bowl MVP and regular season MVP the same season were Packers quarterback Bart Starr after the 1966 season, Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw in 1978, 49ers quarterback Joe Montana in 1989, Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith in 1993 and 49ers quarterback Steve Young in 1994.

  1. Brady will win the SB MVP title even if another Patriots deserve it more like Edelman in SB 49.

  2. I really want to like Brady.

    His involvement in a quack health program makes it very difficult to do so.

  3. How pathetic one must be to use a moniker to pretend you are a fan of a team you envy and then to make snide comments about said team.

    Iggles please make this go away

    So sad. Did you also root for the redskins and cowboys when they made the super bowl?

  6. I dug out my old login just so I could post this. I’m a huge Pats fan, but even I am sick of all fans predicting an easy Pats victory. In my view, the Eagles are a better overall team than last year’s Falcons and this year’s Jaguars, both games New England barely won. The way I see it, this game goes one of two ways: Patriots win a close one, or Eagles win a blowout.

  7. So basically even though it’s been done plenty of times there are some yahoos posting about how the league MVP can win the SB because of some kind of curse?

    Why do I have this terrible feeling that I’m in here exchanging comments with a bunch of high school students?

    I totally agree, there are a whole slew of them jealous losers on here. They are just miserable people.

  9. We’re all still waiting for the real MVP announcement, the Most Valuable Protester! Lot of candidates around the NFL, will be very hard to pick just one.

  10. This should really be Brady’s 3rd or 4th possible double. Who got league MVP last year? – Ryan. 2014? Rodgers. 2003? Manning. 2001 surely? No, Kurt Whiner. And Brady should have had a couple of other league MVPs on top of that – most notably 2015 when he lead the league’s most banged-up team that year to within 2 points of reaching the SB.

    An actual Pats fan who wanted to try to sell that would have gone with James White last year. Of course as a real Pats fan, I should also point out Branch won instead of Brady against, of all teams, the Eagles so (once again) your post has no merit chip.

    Get a life son.

    Well, if it will make you feel any better, many of us real Pats fans who post on this board have long since grown weary of fake Pats fans like yourself pretending to be “huge Pats fans.”

    There are no real Pats fans on this board predicting an easy Pats victory. In fact, most of the real Pats fans on this board are not making any predictions at all beyond expecting a good, close game.

    Good luck to the real Eagles fans.

    Why would you waste your time to come on here and lie about being a Pats fan?

  14. “Philadelphia 33 cheaters 20. MVP folds”

    You’ve spent the last 10 years of your life melting in Pats articles on this site.

  15. Brady would GLADLY & UNSELFISHLY congratulate any of his TEAMATES for receiving the SuperBowl MVP AWARD in order to hoist his 6TH Lombardi trophy……
    That is a fact….
    Go Pats!!!!

    And there it is the littlepet kiss of death. As a Pats fan I always breath easier once I see this sure sign of a Pats win

  17. Refs cost us Super Bowl XI with Ben dreith, Eli’s “great escape” aided by 3 holdings and a face mask and the Denver game in the snow. Patriots should be looking at thei 9th ring tonight, if not for the refs anti- patriotic behavior

  18. Tom Brady leads the NFL in postseason…

    Starts (36)
    Wins (27)
    Conference Championships (8)
    TDs (68)
    Passing Yards (9,721)
    300-Yard Games (13)
    Completions (892)
    SB Wins by QB (5)
    SB MVP Awards (4)
    SB Passing Yards (2,071)
    SB Passing TDs (15)
    SB Starts By QB (7)

  19. I am a Patriots and I am hoping for if not a blowout (trying to be a realist) but for at least a comfortable win. I don’t want to chock on the chicken wing anymore during another nail-biter like all these comebacks like vs Falcons, Steelers and Jaguars.

    Gronk for MVP! Or Dolla!

  20. Cannot wait to see the dejected look on the Eagles and their LOSER fans at the end of this one! At least they can fantasize about “toughness” and their 5’6′ fairytale boxer hero! Pats 31 Eagles 17

  21. Being serious now at what point in the second quarter will the Patsy’s get their pass interference automatic first down inside the Eagle 10 yard line ?

    Luckily for you, I’m not arrogant enough to make uneducated assumptions about people based only on their particular willingness (or lack thereof) to accept as a divine promise that their team will destroy, nay humiliate, the competition. If I WERE that arrogant, I’d say your inability to accept that someone can be a fan of a team while simultaneously acknowledging its possible weaknesses suggests that you suffer from a remarkable level of insecurity, likely brought about by a severe lack of accomplishment in your own life, which requires you to live vicariously through others and dismiss those who are unwilling to blindly accept as inevitable those accomplishments on which your own self worth hangs.

    But like I said, I’m not that arrogant.

  23. If history holds, it will be a close game. The biggest margin of victory for the Patriots in the SB was last year’s six point OT victory. No blowouts tonight.
