   New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player at the 2017 NFL Honors ceremony on Saturday, February 3.

  This was Brady’s third time receiving the MVP award across his eighteen-year career; he won the award in 2007 and 2010.

  Brady later posted a thank-you video message on Twitter saying, “I am very humbled and honored to accept this award tonight. In a team sport like football, you certainly can’t achieve anything as an individual without incredible teammates and incredible coaches who have really committed so much to our team this year.”

   Blaize Leone (12) comments on Brady’s achievement, saying, “He has always had a really good team that has carried him. He’s a system quarterback [and] he would not win on other teams.”

   Brady now holds three regular season MVPs, a Comeback Player of the Year award, four Super Bowl MVPs, and five Lombardi trophies.

  At age 40, he is the oldest player to win the NFL MVP award, and the second player in the four major men’s pro-sports to win a MVP award at that age. The other winner was baseball player Barry Bonds, who won in 2004.

  Despite Brady’s achievement, the next day, Sunday, February 4, the Patriots were defeated by the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII with a final score of 41-33.

  Gus Eckert (12), who was rooting for the Eagles, said, “[Brady] could have played a better game. [Overall] I thought it was an amazing game to watch, both teams were giving it their all and the Patriots definitely could have won, but they made some mistakes that cost them the game.”

  Daniel Hermosisima (12) shared his thoughts on Brady in the Super Bowl.

  “From the game, I could feel that Brady struggled a little bit with the pressure of winning another Super Bowl. Still, I could tell by his record and multiple awards that he’s an outstanding player, so I feel like he didn’t exactly need this win anyway.”

  Brady is signed on for the 2019 season and does not plan on retiring any time soon.
