Of the four players who received votes for Offensive Player of the Year honors, three were Patriots. Brady received 35.5 votes, Randy Moss 12.5 and Wes Welker one. Brett Favre was the only non-Patriot to get a vote. It's not surprising that the Patriots hogged the votes. As an offense, New England scored 589 points and 75 touchdowns -- both NFL records.
Moss and Tomlinson received all 50 votes for All-Pro, but Brady came in at 49.5 because one media member spit a vote at quarterback between Brady and Favre. Still, Brady was a runaway winner at the position.
Joining Brady and Moss as All-Pro selections are LT Matt Light, LB Mike Vrabel and CB Asante Samuel. Vrabel received All-Pro honors after getting two votes for Defensive Player of the Year. Everyone but Moss is making his first appearance on the All-Pro team. Moss was chosen as a Viking in 1998, 2000 and 2003.
BY THE NUMBERS: 137 -- Total points the Patriots allowed in both the first and second halves of games during the regular season.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "He's like 5-(foot)-6, so I guess it's easy to miss him out there. He can hide in the grass out there." -- QB Tom Brady on what makes WR Wes Welker so effective as a slot receiver.
