The MVP debate: Vick vs. Brady

December, 24, 2010
It's one of the hottest debates across the league right now. We already know that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has comeback player of the year sewn up, but he seems to have closed the gap on Tom Brady in the MVP race. Our MVP specialist, Mike Sando, finally moved past Vick past Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers in his latest ranking.

If the vote were held today, I think Brady wins convincingly. But the voters have until Jan. 7, which means that Vick has two more games to turn the tide. Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News asked three panelists (two from Boston) to discuss the MVP vote. Here's what's Mike Reiss said about Brady's candidacy:

"The first thing that comes to mind with Brady is the lack of interceptions and how his decision-making and accuracy has been the foundation for the team's success," writes Reiss. "Some luck of late with tipped balls, but still impressive. Also, the Patriots are as young as they've been in [Bill] Belichick's tenure. So Brady's leadership has been called upon more than ever. Just talking with opposing coaches and personnel guys throughout the year, they always come back to Brady, noting how he covers up so many other areas of weakness."

Vic Carucci of thinks that Vick and Brady could be co-MVPs. Do you guys think that would satisfy everyone or would you rather see one player win the award?
