Offensive MVP

Tom Brady: I could sit here and write out the stats, but you already know them by heart after all the Brady-Manning week hoopla. I could even break down his throwing mechanics and how he still has pin point accuracy at age 37. I could also detail how he’s getting this done with less than others… but I’m not going to do that. All I really need to say is, mobility. Tom Brady hasn’t become Randall Cunningham, but he’s utilized his legs more than ever this season. Early offensive line struggles this year may have actually benefited him because he looks more aggressive after the snap with his movement. Being forced to create space and time due to poor line play has compelled Brady to step out of his comfort zone, literally. In some ways his recent play has reminded me of Ben Roethlisberger. Who in the past, has had to compensate for a poor line by stepping out of the pocket to give receivers a chance to get open down field. Fortunately, Brady’s line has come together and we don’t have to worry about him taking unnecessary punishment like Big Ben has in recent seasons. But this added element to his game should only bode well for the Patriots’ offense come January.

Where does the emerging second year star rank within the roster?

The 2014 Patriots season gets underway this week and it’s about this time everyone begins releasing roster projections for the final 53. I like to look at the roster from a broader perspective to figure out where each player on the 90 man roster stands and evaluate their chances of actually making the team.

Many of the 90 players that take the field on Thursday do so with no chance of making the team regardless of how good they perform. A handful of the players will be fighting for a 3-4 coveted spots, and a couple guys will make the roster no matter how bad they play. Here is where I believe all 90 players on the team rank in relation to one another and their chances of making the final roster.
