And the best player in the NFL is none other than the MVP himself, Aaron Rodgers.
Sure, he got bounced from the playoffs earlier than expected, but that shouldn't take away from what he did on the field as a whole.
Watching him play the quarterback position this year was like watching an artist. He was so incredibly good and made throws that no other quarterback could make.
His precision was nearly perfect, and his 122.5 QB rating during 2011 is an NFL record.
It will be extremely difficult for Rodgers to lose his throne as the best player in the NFL because of his age and the talent around him.
He's going to be extremely good for a really, really long time.
