    Edelman definitely deserves MVP!

    And the first white non-QB since John Riggins in 1983. It's been a long time coming, I hope it comes through.

    And not a single team wil
    Didn't Deion Branch win it instead of Brady back in '02 or '03? One of the more ridiculous Caste awards. . .

    I also feel the Rams will be back again as contenders with Kupp. Hopefully they get some palefaces for that defense as well.

    Pretty ironic how both the college championship and Super Bowl are both one by big, strong, tall armed white athletes while everyone keeps stating that the position is changing. It wasn't an overly enjoyable season but the outcome with the Patriots winning is always great.

    Brady’s top 3 receivers were Edelman (140 yards), Gronk (87 yards) and Burkhead (15 yards). Burkhead added 45 rushing yards. Nice!

    Branch was the 2004 Super Bowl MVP, Super Bowl 39.

    Yes, I meant to write “white WR to win the award.”

    The last time a White WR was MVP was the only Super Bowl I didn't watch. An ice storm knocked out power about midway through the first quarter. It HAS to be Edelman.

    Nate Burleson stating the obvious on CBS -- Julian Edelman is a Hall of Famer.

    Edelman is Super Bowl MVP! It's official per the NFL's website.

    Edelman now has 3 rings as the #1 WR. Nobody has come on a longer journey than him.

    It was nice to hear Burelson’s praise.

    Edelman had a better game than Biletnikoff did in my opinion. Unlike Super Bowl XI, this game was closely contested all the way.

    Mid season it didn't look like the Pats could pull it off but here they are yet again.

    Best performance by their defense in a long time credit where due.

    You think about this dynasty -- they went a long time between winning it three years out of four two different times even though they were right there every year. In '07 they went 18-0 only to lose in the Super Bowl on a freak play by the Giants; same thing when the Giants beat them four years later. Six Super Bowls in 17 years, very close to eight or nine, what a dynasty in a league designed for parity!!

    It was great seeing Suh looking defeated on the Rams bench.

    A dynasty whose formula no other organization will dare copy or learn from

    The 2013 Broncos looked somewhat like the Patriots with Welker, Decker, and Tamme catching passes from Manning. It works. Someone will always copy it.

    After Jim Nantz interviewed Belichek and Brady he said, "now back to the great James Brown" who promptly said "now we know why they having a winning template"...yet no one else will apply that same "winning template" to their own organization.
