There are probably many Patriot fans reading this blog who think Tom Brady should be the NFL Most Valuable Player. Brady is great, but Ryan has been the best QB in football this season and leader of the NFL's most prolific offense.
I don't have a say, but here are some other people weighing in:
CBS: Matt Ryan lock for MVP?

Here's a list of QBs with a higher yards per attempt than Matt Ryan since 2000:— HSAC (@Harvard_Sports) January 2, 2017

Why should any BC fan really care about who wins an NFL award? Aside from Matt being a passionate BC supporter, Matt winning helps BC. In the past 20 years -- even when we reached No. 2 -- there is always a perception and narrative problem with BC. We are nice little underdogs, but never elite. Matt has been shaking that perception too since he entered the NFL. Winning the NFL's top prize changes that perception for him and indirectly for BC.
BC produces great players. It would be nice for that to be recognized.
