This just in, NFL Super Bowls and postseason games don’t matter. According to NFL.com, Tom Brady was voted the top NFL player of 2011 by his peers on a list of 100 players. Brady beat out his “rival” Peyton Manning for the top spot.
Even an NFL lockout won’t stop the NFL propaganda machine from shoveling the love story that is Tom Brady down our throats. Listen, I love his story. Late round draft pick, skinny kid at the combine, finally given a chance and living the dream of NFL dominance and a super model wife. Who can’t relate to that? But to call Tom Brady the best player of 2011 is just an insult to the 162.9 million people who watched Super Bowl XLV and DIDN’T see Tom Brady take a snap.
This is the reason that I can’t stomach the NFL Network anymore. The channel has turned into an outlet specifically for the NFL “media” and players to spin their publicity machine diverting you away from reality and revising history to meet their marketing goals.
