Josh Allen favorite to win the MVP
Josh Allen was picked with the 7th overall pick by the Buffalo Bills back in 2018 and that’s when they found their franchise quarterback. Every season since Allen’s rookie season he has improved tremendously and proved that he is an elite quarterback in this league.
In his fourth season, Allen was able to establish himself as an MVP candidate and led the Bills to first in the AFC East. Josh Allen’s career year consisted of him throwing for 4,407 yards, 36 touchdowns, 15 interceptions, and a QBR of 60.7. This was By far his best season in the league, but I expect to be even better next year as he is the frontrunner to win MVP.
Allen lost in the playoffs in a heartbreaking overtime loss to the Chiefs which had the league and fans in controversy over the overtime rules.
Patrick Mahomes is a league talent, a fan favorite with his no-look passes and crazy cannon of an arm. Mahomes was drafted with the 10th pick in the 2017 draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, it is fair to say he has already impacted the league in a big way.
In his first five seasons, he was able to make the super bowl two times and even win a ring. In 2018 Mahomes became the first Kansas City Chief to ever be selected as the NFL MVP, this was in his second season in the league.
The league has Mahomes coming in as the second favorite to win the 2022 MVP. Last year Mahomes was also in MVP conversation throwing for over 4,800 yards, 37 touchdowns, 13 interceptions, and a QBR of 62.2. Mahomes lost one of his best receivers in Tyreek Hill this past offseason, the question is will he be able to have the same success as he did without him.
Tom Brady one last ride
The NFL and fans were upset when Tom Brady announced his retirement this offseason, but it was not long until Brady decided he wanted one more season. This news brought smiles to the sports world as Brady is considered the best NFL player of all time by many people.
Brady has had the best career at quarterback the league has ever seen winning 7 super bowls, six with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s truly amazing how Brady in just his first season with the Buccaneers was able to bring the organization their first super bowl in franchise history.
In 2021 Tom Brady arguably should have won MVP over Aaron Rodgers. Brady was first in the league in passing yards and touchdowns, throwing for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns. The 44-year-old finished second in QBR with 68.1, in my opinion, he was snubbed from the MVP award.
Despite being 44 years old Brady is still the third league favorite to take home MVP, this would make him the oldest player to win MVP by 7 years (Peyton Manning won it at 37 years old). The question is will Brady be able to play at the same ability he did last year?
