    Had Hightower made that pick then he would’ve got it. The issue was probably Gilmore played just of an impressive game as Hightower. I think edleman was the path of least resistance.

    I would have preferred they gave it to Gilmore than Edelman. A bunch of yards that amounted to nothing.

    I think Gronk had more of an overall impact on the game than Edelman, but if you gave it to Gronk you might as well given it to Brady. Like I said Edelman was the path of least resistance in the voting since he had a ton of great stats. Personally I would’ve been in favor of a dual mvp like there was with the Cowboys that one year and gave it to Hightower and Gilmore.

    But he isn’t the most egregious SB MVP of all time. I think that belongs to Eli (SB 42), Dion Branch, and Santonio Holmes ( should have been James Harrison)

    Definitely not. Just seems like an injustice to give it to an offensive player in that kind of game. There are probably even a few more that are worse too.

    Agreed, and it’s why Eli shouldn’t have won it on that 1st time when Strahan and Tuck almost single handily won that game by themselves. It should’ve gone to the defense or the punter (sorta a joke but that dude was awesome as well).


    There are a few more than the ones that I didn’t list but they are not as clear cut. Some of Tom Brady’s MVPs are questionable (36) being the most controversial ( maybe 51 but how do you give it to White or Edelman when we’ve seen quarterbacks like Manning and Elway get boat raced by similar deficits) but then again Branch shouldn’t have won it over him so I guess that makes up for it. I think Jerry Rice is a questionable one because the game was ultimately decided by Joe Montana to John Taylor, but it’s hard to deny a 215 yard receiving performance. Elway was another one when Rod Smith clearly was better that day, but they wanted to send off Elway in style.

    I kept thinking the whole game Edelman is going to be the MVP. Frankly, he was the only thing working on offense for either team. But then, Gronk probably made the two biggest offensive plays all night, especially the one that finally put New England in scoring position. Michel had a very effective game as well.

    I agree, a defender deserved it. But we all know how the media is with stats.

    Well they used to have the fan vote as a more significant percentage but after they kept giving to the quarterback exclusively almost every time they kinda started walking that back to what it is today. Eli won the MVP on a 40% fan vote while the media tried to give it to Tuck. I think that single MVP proves fans can be just as dumb at how they vote as well.

    Yeah you're definitely right about that. I think back to all the clamor to give McAfferey the Heisman over Henry, Murray winning it over Tua, and even folks saying Toby Gerhart deserved it over Mark Ingram.

    He played even worse in the AFCCG. He had 1 TD and 2 (3 really) TDs in that game.

    No...he had TWO REALLY.... 1 his fault and the other Edleman’s Fault. The other doesn’t count despite how much you and the rest of the country wants it to.

    Remind me how many 3rd and longs he converted, yards he had, and late game heroics he had.

    Only you, Rob Parker, and disgruntled Patriots haters believe that performance was horrible and try to say a Non play counts.

    Edit: FIFY because I knew what you meant... unless you believe 3 (really 4) TDs is worse than his SB performance...lol thanks day-day

    Doing the math, this looks like 3 (4 really) TD's.
