Tom Brady Named AP Offensive Player Of The Year

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the NFL's AP Offensive Player of the Year in an announcement on NFL Network.  Brady was a virtual lock to win the award after leading the Patriots to a 14-2 season and having one of his finest seasons of his career - less than two years after suffering a knee injury that cost him the 2008 season.


Brady finished the season with 3900 yards passing, completing 66% of his passes.  He threw 36 touchdowns to just 4 interceptions, and in the process broke Bernie Kosar's record for most pass completions without and interception.  The Patriots lost to the New York Jets in the divisional round of the playoffs.  After the season it was discovered that Brady had played much of the season with a stress fracture in his foot.


For his career, Brady has thrown for over 34,000 yards, 261 toucdowns and has a career passer rating of 95.2
