Tom Brady is the MVP

While everyone is busy talking about who is going to be this year’s MVP, and it obviously should be Tom Brady, I think it’s time we look at the other side. To be an MVP you have to be playing damn good and your team must be one of the best. Your performances and stats mean something and that’s why you’re an MVP. Your play leads to victories and you overcome any deficiencies to be one of the best players on one of the best teams. That’s what an MVP is.

So what is an MOP? Well that means that despite your good season and great numbers, you’re still not good enough to help your team win games. You can throw for the most touchdown passes ever and get the most sacks ever, but if you aren’t on a winning team you’re not an MVP, your an MOP. Your stats make you look like a top 10 player in your position while your team is trying to figure out who they’re drafting in the top 10 next year.

These are your 5 MOPs of 2015 so far
