Tom Brady Leading AP All-Pro Team
Despite a season that came up very short, Tom Brady continues to get the accolades, being the top vote-getter for The Associated Press 2010 NFL All-Pro Team.
This is the the seventh straight year at least one player has gotten every vote and it was only three years ago that missed by a half-vote of being unanimous (sharing a ballot with Brett Favre). If you recall, that was the year that Brady set the league record for touchdown passes.
When asked about the honor, Brady took the company line.
"I've been here for a while, so I've seen our offense evolve," Brady told the Associated Press. "We do some different things now than we've done in the past. Ultimately we're still trying to do the same thing, which is be productive and win games."
The Patriots finished up with a 14-2 record, best in the NFL and was the league's leading passer. He threw a record 335 attempts without an interception, until he threw a pick in the first drive of the Divisional Playoff game against the Jets. Overall, Brady threw for 36 touchdowns and had four interceptions.
Brady is joined by teammates Logan Mankins, guard, and inside linebacker Jerod Mayo.
The All-Pro team is selected by a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL.
