And Fresh, a QB has done what Brady is doing....Peyton Manning did it just a few years ago. So given the team that he has, i do think others could be put in that situation and have similar results.

Peyton almost did what Brady is doing - Brady's number's through 10 games are much better than Peyton's that year he broke records... Ok, I'll shut up now guys!

Not really.

Let compare:

Brady '07:
Yds/G - 298.4, Pct. - 73.2, TD - 33 (9 games), INT - 4, Rating - 131.8

Manning '04:
Yds/G - 284.8, Pct. - 67.6, TD - 49 (16 games), INT - 10, Rating - 121.1

While Peyton Manning had a historic season, Brady is having a better season. He is completing more passes (6% more accurate), throwing for more yards, and throwing more TDs per attempt and fewer INTs per attempt.

But the season isnt over yet....what Brady is ON PACE to do is just fine, but until he does it, you cant compare IMO. Adrian Peterson was ON PACE to do a lot of things this year too, but now its not going to happen.

While Peyton Manning had a historic season, Brady is having a better season. He is completing more pass (6% more accurate), throwing for more yards, and throwing more TDs per attempt and less INTs per attempt.

While also doing this by running up the score. Lets face it, Manning did it and they went easy on the opponent in the second half and let Edge go to work. Regardless, none of the numbers are going to be EXACTLY the same. So what Brady is throwing for 15 more yards a game this year...big whoop. The only thing in my eyes that Brady is doing better is throwing less INT's, but the season isnt over yet, so we dont know how that will play out.

Yes you can. You can compare percentages, and passer rating. You can compare yards per game, INTs per attempt, TDs per attempt, completion percentage, ect...

The sample size is large enough at this point.

But that has nothing to do with percentages. Brady's completion percentage isn't influenced by running up the score. His INTs per attempt or TDs per attempt aren't effected by that...

If anything, running up the score would hurt those percentages because you are taking more chances.

You don't see a difference in completion percentage? 6% is a big deal.

Word on Brady...Yes. Who else?

Although my personal allegiance is with Favre, who's
having a great year this year, I concede it to Brady.
He's just unCONSCIOUS this year.

Ask yourself this question:

What would the Patriots look like if Brady went down with an injury, and Matt Cassel had to play?

Would they still be good? Sure. Would they be the best team ever? Not even close.
Ask that about Favre and I think anyone would say he's more important. However, there is no doubt Brady is the MVP ... I can't even argue that, he is just amazing.

I'm starting to believe Favre would be the MVP if Brady
wasn't around.

Could they be named co-MVP (Like when Favre shared the
award with Barry Sanders that one year) ?
