Tom Brady is an NFL player with a reputation for excellence. But this year he was outdone by Peyton Manning. The man almost couldn’t obtain a single MVP vote. In fact, Jim Miller was the only one to go against the grain and cast his solitary vote for Brady.
The player of players, Tom Brady has become the superstar of the stadium thanks to his tireless efforts. It is not easy being the best. It takes dedication and devotion not to mention some gut-wrenching work.
But this year something different has happened. Tom has been left behind by some new talent on the scene. Peyton Manning has been voted MVP in 2014. This has come as somewhat of a shock to Tom.
Manning’s performance spoke for itself. Thus he was selected almost without an iota of doubt. Well, almost! Jim Miller was the lone figure who lent his support to Brady.
But the fact of the matter is that, despite his legendary status, Tom Brady didn’t qualify for even a single vote this year. The truth is the truth, no matter how bitter it might be.
Brady and Manning were weighed in the balance and the former was found wanting. Despite his sincere efforts, the results just were not good enough.
It was a match that pitted ability against ability. And Manning proved his mettle beyond a shadow of doubt. The year 2014 definitely does not belong to Brady.
It is Manning’s by virtue of the sheer pains he has taken to stand out as #1. If you don’t make it sometimes, that is nothing to be ashamed of.
Tom may regain his lost status next year and besides good sportsmanship is everything. After all, winning or losing isn’t everything. It’s how you play the game!
