Tom Brady has been terrific throughout his career with the Patriots. He now has one more piece of hardware to add to his trophy case, the 2010 AP Offensive Player of the Year award. It is his second of the same award, winning the other in 2007.

Tom Brady has led New England to four Super Bowls, three Lombardi Trophies, and a dynasty. His only competition for offensive honors this year was Eagles QB Michael Vick, whom was far behind in the voting.

This season he had an amazing string of 355 passes without an interception, of which he only had four all year to his 36 TDs. He was elected to his sixth Pro Bowl this season and named to the All-Pro team. All without any super star support.

However, he did get lucky with a few defensive players dropping his passes after he hit them in the hands. But hey, to be good you also must be lucky at times. I could go on about his achievements and awards, but we'd be here until the Super Bowl champion is crowned.

Unfortunately for Tom, he couldn't take his team to the big game this year, but if he has a repeat of his 2010 season, it won't be too difficult for the Pats to return to the playoffs.

Brady is either loved or hated by most NFL fans, but he is a future Hall of Famer and the top guy in this age of elite quarterbacks. Unless he has to fight through another big injury, Tom will be terrific for at least a few more years.
