Tom Brady Is a Sincere MVP Candidate in 2020

Tom Brady 2020 NFL MVP

He’s got six Super Bowl rings and a beautiful family. He’s got all the money a man could ever need and is on the verge of turning 43.

Yet here Tom Brady is, possibly more motivated and determined than ever.

Out to prove any naysayers wrong, TB12 is in line to have a fruitful season in Tampa Bay. I’ll even give you 3 reasons why Tom Brady can win the 2020 NFL MVP.

Weapons, Weapons, Weapons

I came up with 5 reasons why the Buccaneers can win Super Bowl 55, and that was before they acquired Rob Gronkowski. Tom Brady was already in great hands with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, plus O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate are both above-average tight ends.

Now Tom gets his old safety blanket in Foxborough back, not to mention Ke’Shawn Vaughn (RB) and Tyler Johnson (WR) are a couple of rookies that the Bucs are tremendously excited about.

You could argue that other than the years when Randy Moss was in the picture, this will be the most talented collection of pass-catchers Brady has ever played with.

The Buccaneers Have a Formidable Defense

Without looking, you’d probably never guess which NFL team led the league in rushing defense in 2019. The answer is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and they should be equally stout in 2020.

Ndamukong Suh and Jason Pierre-Paul were both re-signed, and Shaquil Barrett was franchise-tagged. Devin White is going to continue developing as an all-around linebacker — something Lavonte David is already established as.

After failing to reach the playoffs in any of his eight seasons in Tampa, Lavonte told the team’s official website just how stoked he is to play for a Tom Brady-led squad.

“What he brings is just that winning mentality, that attitude, knowing what it takes to get there and knowing what it takes to win it all. That’s all everybody, all the guys in our locker room want. He’s the perfect guy for us.”

With the front seven in great hands, drafting Antoine Winfield Jr. helps solidify the secondary. All in all, don’t be shocked if the Buccaneers defense ends the season as a top-10 unit. 

Bruce Arians Is a Great Coach

Bruce Arians led this organization to a 7-9 record despite his quarterback throwing a league-high 30 interceptions. Imagine what he can do with Tom Brady captaining the ship.

A 65-42-1 career record as a head coach sheds light on the fact that Arians is a winner — in case you forgot he was an assistant in Pittsburgh and won two Super Bowls with the Steelers.

His complete understanding of what it takes to build a championship-quality team is evident — just look at what he and Jason Licht have done since they were able to lure Tom to town. Bruce immediately went out and traded for Rob Gronkowski, then he made sure to nab Tristan Wirfs in the first round of the draft in order to bulk up the protection scheme.

Arians is doing everything in his power to set Brady up for success, which is exactly what the person in his position should be striving for.

Will Tom Brady Win the NFL MVP in 2020?

After explaining why Tom Brady can win the MVP, the question then becomes “Will Tom Brady win the MVP?”

Well, first, we have to consider who else will be part of the 2020 NFL MVP race.

Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson come to mind, and Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray are in positions to put their respective teams on their backs.

But after that, Tom Brady is lurking at +1200 in the NFL MVP odds. Some of the best football betting sites installed Brady at +800, but his +1200 price tag at BetOnline is more than palatable. My gut initially tells me Mahomes is going to put up video-game-like numbers and the Chiefs are going to win 13+ games, which sets Patrick up to win this award for the second time in three years.

Nevertheless, I’m not foolish enough to count out a cat who already has three MVP trophies sitting on his mantle at home. Tom’s got a ridiculously good supporting cast on offense, a stellar defense, and a head coach who believes that he is the guy to lead this team to a championship.

All the ingredients are laid out for Brady to produce an MVP-caliber season. I can’t wait to see what gets cooked up.
