NFL MVP 2011: Why Aaron Rodgers Is a Lock for Coveted Award
The Green Bay Packers quarterback had a truly dominant season this past year, carrying his team to a league-best 15-1 record.
Rodgers threw for 4,643 yards, averaging 310 yards per game. He completed 68 percent of his passes and had an amazing touchdown-to-interception ratio at 45-6.
He put the Packers on his back like a true leader and without question deserves the prestigious NFL MVP award.
In addition to putting up superb numbers, Rodgers also led the league with a quarterback rating of 122.5, which was 12 points higher than second place. That is all the proof you need to see that Rodgers was far greater than everyone else this past season.
Who Has the Best Chance of Beating Aaron Rodgers for 2011 NFL MVP?
Sure, Drew Brees broke the single season passing yards record, but he wasn't on point all season long like Rodgers was. Anyone can throw for a ton of yards—it's what you do overall that wins you the awards.
Last year, Tom Brady won the NFL MVP award with ease, and this year the same will be said for Rodgers.
While other players did big things this past year, nobody else even comes close to the astonishing feats accomplished by Rodgers. Week in and week out, Rodgers was better than everyone else around the NFL.
When you compare what Brady did a year ago to Rodgers' stats from this season, it's easy to see that Rodgers is an even bigger lock than Brady was in 2010.
Brady's numbers were better in only one category. He threw four interceptions, and even though Rodgers may have thrown two more than him, he also threw nine more touchdown passes.
Brady was given high praise for his exceptional season, which lead to him being the first ever unanimous choice MVP. Since Rodgers was even better in 2011, it's a simple call. He has proven he's the best in the league and he deserves the award.
Rodgers' competition was stiffer than Brady's, so I don't think he will be unanimous. Brees shattered a record, so some people will vote for him.
Still, though, Rodgers will win with no problem. His 2011 season was out-of-this-world good.
