  1. Most objective NFL fans will acknowledge that Tom Brady deserved the AP’s 2010 NFL MVP Award. Whether they wanted him to win the award is, of course, a separate question with likely a different answer, especially given that the wealthy, first-ballot Hall of Famer (with looks on par with a young Elvis Presley) is married to a supermodel.

    To his credit, Mike Vick—arguably Brady’s closest competitor for league MVP—reached career highs in passing yards, TD passes, rushing TDs, passer rating, and completion percentage. But while Vick was setting career records during the 2010 regular season, Brady was setting NFL records. Most notably, those included: (1) highest TD-to-INT ratio; (2) most consecutive 2-TD games w/o an INT; (3) consecutive regular-season home start wins; (4) consecutive passes w/o an INT; and, (5) fastest to reach 100 regular-season wins. Brady was also the only unanimous 2010 AP All-Pro Team selection and the 2010 AP NFL OPOY.

    Vick needs to continue to develop into a pocket passer. Regrettably, he still has rabbit in him—i.e., he has that run-first mindset. But at age 31 at the start of next season, that not only becomes less of a viable option for him going forward, but also exposes him to an unnecessary risk of injury. Perhaps that’s why—even more than any off-field concerns—the business savvy Eagles just might keep Vick on a short leash and apply the franchise tag.
