    Since when is returning to the field from an injury considered a "comeback"?
    Apparently the voting committee isn't the most literate group in the sporting world. Heck, it could be reasonably argued that even Kyle Orton is more deserving. I wonder if Brady would have won if he was ugly?

    Meh, I suppose you can throw alot of situations out there and see "comebacks". Its to bad Vince didnt win, but at least he didnt lose to some i cant respect, pretty sure Cadillac was 2nd in voting, Im glad to see him doing well too, his knee injury was pretty bad

    He did miss all of last year right? I'd consider it a comeback. Most players take a good two years to make it back, if ever. Vince Young should certainly be getting votes too. The idea of the award is what you want to question. Who really deserves it. And I think most of us look to award someone who has beaten the odds, faced some sort of adversity, and I don't think anybody looks at tom Brady as having done that. He did, but nobody looks at it like that because he is Tom Brady, winner of everything.

    It should have gone to Cadillac Williams. It's not unusual for quarterbacks to return from torn knee ligaments (Philip Rivers, Carson Palmer and Donovan McNabb have all done it recently and none of those players got the comeback award).

    Cadillac Williams came back from two completely destroyed knees and had the best season of his career. No one has ever done that before.

    Brady deserved it and if comeback does not mean from injury what else would it mean?

    Almost everybody who wins this award came back from an injury the previous year.


    I guess if a player significantly improved his performance and helped his team win more games qualifies which is what Favre did.

    I did think Vince deserved more votes.

    Brady showed up during the voting, pointed at the ballot, and gave his "alright" fist motion to ensure his victory.
