SI Thinks Tom Is Terrific, Too

New England football fans don’t much care what anyone else thinks of our players. We’ve become so accustomed to the rest of the sports world underestimating the value of our can’t-miss kicker, immovable-object defenders, right-place-at-the-right-time receivers, and take-no-prisoners quarterback. So forgive us if some us might respond to Sports Illustrated‘s selection of quarterback Tom Brady as 2005 Sportsman of the Year with great big "So What?"

We’ve known how great Brady is since 2001. As usual, it just took the rest of the country awhile to catch up. A bit like how Aerosmith’s "Dream On" shot to the top of the charts back in 1976—three years after it became a hit in Boston.

P.S. Hooray for a second consecutive New England Sportsman/men recognition. The 2004 winners, as you may recall, were the Boston Red Sox, naturally.
