The season hasn't even started yet (if it even does), but the football community has already picked Tom Brady as 2011's best player.
In the last installment of NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2011, a ten part series finishing on Sunday night, NFL players and coaches picked the New England Patriots' quarterback as this year's best player in the game.
Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who presented the segment, shared these kind words about Brady:
"He's not the biggest, he was never the strongest, he was never the fastest. So with that being said, all the intangibles a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked with him, because it was burning from the inside of him."
Congrats on the honor, Tom! We wish you the best of luck in the 2011-2012 season and are crossing our fingers there is actually a 2011-2012 season for you to play in!
