Tom Brady named NFL's Most Valuable Player

By Cindy Boren

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player today.

Brady was a unanimous choice with all 50 votes, the Associated Press announced. He is the first unanimous winner since the AP began using a national panel of media members to select the MVP. It is Brady's second MVP award; in 2007, he received 49 votes (with one going to Brett Favre).

"It's a great award," Brady, who last week was named AP Offensive Player of the Year, told Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network. "I think playing in a Super Bowl is the greatest thing a quarterback can be doing at this time of year."

Lombardi asked Brady if he had recovered from the Patriots' loss to the New York Jets in the playoffs. "You don't ever get over the losses. I haven't got over the loss to the Broncos in 2006," Brady said. "They stick with you forever."

The Patriots were 14-2 in the regular season as Brady passed for 36 touchdowns (with four interceptions).
