ESPN recently sat with their writers of the AFC East to have them pick who will be MVP of the division. It was unanimously decided as quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots with not a single writer picking anyone from the New York Jets.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. When a panel of professional writers of ESPN’s NFL Nation gets asked who will be the AFC East’s division MVP, it’s a no-brainer. All three writers on the panel unanimously picked quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. Not a single writer picked anyone from the New York Jets.
At the end of the day, not only is Brady a Super Bowl-winning quarterback numerous times over but is easily one of the greatest to ever play the position. Due to his legacy, he’s been tormenting the Jets for what feels like forever now. From embarrassing the Jets either at home or away, Brady, until the day he officially retires, is the best of the best in the AFC East.
Even if Brady lost some of his trusted weapons on offense this offseason, he’s still such a legendary quarterback that he can easily make everyone around him great. It doesn’t matter who his receiving targets are, the man knows how to rally everyone and win a plethora of football games when it matters most.

Don’t worry though, Jets fans. In the future, which is undoubtedly a bright one for Gang Green, their time will come. Brady can’t play forever and it’s only a matter of time before the Patriots dynasty eventually comes to an end where they’ll have to rebuild.
Luckily, the Jets are already on pace and have been rebuilding for the past few years now. They’re slowly but surely rebuilding the roster from the ground up and even though they still have some major areas to address, have good talent across the roster that will continue to be developed. Once they Jets fix their offensive line, pass rush, and add more offensive weapons, they’ll be a contending team.
It won’t be long until the Jets will have players worthy of such praise from professional writers, but for now, it’s all about Brady until proven otherwise. Once the Jets have all the pieces in place, it sure is going to be amazing once the franchise starts getting some serious recognition again.
