Mike Greenberg of ESPN is the latest in a long line of pundits to declare the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady as the new MVP of the NFL.
Greenberg, the network’s longtime analyst, is one of the most respected football analysts in the country and has been one of its most prominent voices since becoming a full-time ESPN contributor in 2012.
He joined ESPN on a full time basis in 2017.
In his first NFL game as the Patriots’ regular starter on Sunday, Brady completed 22 of 35 passes for 301 yards and three touchdowns.
In the Patriots 2-2 overtime loss to the New York Jets, Brady threw for a franchise-record 456 yards and five touchdowns.
He was also sacked four times.
The Patriots, who lost their third straight game, are now 2-1, with wins over the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.
ESPN’s NFL MVP award is decided by a ballot of members of the media and the fans.
The winners are determined by a random draw from ESPN’s media and fan vote.
Greenberg told the Boston Herald that Brady is the new league MVP and the Patriots are the “best team ever” and that the game is “over.”
He continued, “Tom Brady is a very good quarterback, and the game was over when he had the game-winning touchdown.
I think this is the best team ever.
This is a franchise that has won the Super Bowl three times.
This isn’t a franchise in need of a superstar.
This team has one of those guys who is the most dominant player in the league.”
Greenberg is also one of few analysts who regularly voices his opinion on the Patriots, as he is a regular contributor to ESPN’s SportsCenter.
He made headlines when he told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Brady and his teammates have “earned” the nickname “The Patriots.”
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen echoed Greenberg’s sentiments and said that the Patriots were “the best team in football” for the past three seasons.
“The way they’ve handled their business over the past four seasons is absolutely incredible,” he said.
“I mean, they’ve won four Super Bowls, the last two with Tom Brady and they have a history of being competitive.”
He added that the team has “no excuse” for losing.
“If you look at the history, if you look in the history of the Patriots franchise, you have been competitive,” he continued.
“This is the third Super Bowl team in the last three years.
If you look back, you’ll find that the first two Super Bowl teams, they were also competitive.
I mean, this team has been competitive for three years, and this team is going to go out and play every single day.” “
They’re competitive for a reason, and they’re not going to let the team down.
I mean, this team has been competitive for three years, and this team is going to go out and play every single day.”
After the game, the Patriots said they have “no further comment” about the ESPN report.
Greenberg tweeted that he “welcomes” the accolades and “looks forward to working with the new @NFLMVP.”
It was not immediately clear if the Patriots planned to discuss the awards with Greenberg.
The ESPN report came after the Patriots clinched the NFC East title with a 31-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
