Will Tom Brady win the NFL MVP award at age 44?

The mere fact that there is a discussion about this topic is absolutely shocking. We don’t even want to begin the conversation that it is mind-blowing for an athlete to perform at the highest level of any sport, let alone football.

The problem is that we can’t help it. Even if Brady isn’t first or near the top in most quarterback stat categories for the 2021/22 season, it is remarkable that he can be a starter in the league at his age. But here’s the kicker: he is actually near the top (if not 1st) in almost any QB stat category this year.

Will Tom Brady win MVP

What are Tom Brady’s stats through 12 weeks this season?

Here’s how Tom Brady is ranking right now (through 12 weeks)

  • Touchdown passes: 1st (50)
  • Pass Completions: 1st (309)
  • Passing yards: 2nd (3403)

Since Tom Brady joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season, he also holds these records:

  • Red Zone completions – 105 (1st)
  • Red Zone TD-Interception ratio – 53-0 (1st)
  • Touchdown passes of over 25 yards – 13 (1st)

What are the chances for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win the NFC?

It seems like the GOAT is ageless and we are tired of even speculating for long he will play. At this point, we simply take him for granted and don’t think about his age at all.

The Bucs pulled off a great victory last week and snapped a short losing streak against the Indianapolis Colts. This is a team that has its own MVP candidate for the regular season. In that game, Tom Brady threw for a ‘’modest’’ 226 yards and 1 touchdown. However, he orchestrated a surgical game-winning drive and gave his team a 38-31 lead with 20 seconds to go.

Brady is currently the frontrunner for the MVP of the 2021/2022 regular season and his team is poised to attack the 1st seed in the NFC. If the Bucs manage to get a bye week for the first round of the playoffs this will be huge. But is that a bad jinx? Since 2000 the regular season MVP has not won the Super Bowl. If you ask Tom Brady which accolade he prefers, he will surely say The Lombardi Trophy.

Other possible NFL Regular season MVP winners

  1. Josh Allen – the big strong QB of the Bills needs to play a little bit better and his team needs to get out of the slump. The problem is that they have to face the New England Patriots in week 13. This is an excellent chance for Allen to shine against a very tough defense.
  2. Aaron Rodgers – without a doubt one of the toughest quarterbacks out there. The immensely talented Rodgers has been playing with a broken toe these couple of weeks and he also battled an illness before that. If the Packers win out, he may well earn a back-to-back MVP award.
  3. Patrick Mahomes – not that the Chiefs are doing fantastic on offense but Mahomes is the definition of a valuable player. Without him, the Kansas City Chiefs are nothing more than a team of relatively talented players and a couple of stars on offense.
