Patriots quarterback Tom Brady



Most Valuable Player Tom Brady, Patriots quarterback

His third MVP will come when he does what he does: Makes great decisions with poise and pinpoint passes no matter how old he is, who’s on the other end or who is playing left guard.


Coach of the Year

Bill Belichick, Patriots

He’ll win 14 games — yawn — and another division title — ho-hum — in the wake of trading another big-name Pro Bowl starter whose britches got too big on the eve of the season — zzzz.


Assistant coach of the year Dom Capers, Packers defensive coordinator

It helps being five deep at cornerback. A lot.


Defensive Player of the Year Kenny Vaccaro, Saints safety

This guy can do it all, and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan knows it.


Comeback Player of the Year

Von Miller, Broncos linebacker

Back and potentially better from a suspension and a torn knee ligament.
