In 2011, quarterback Aaron Rodgers won the NFL MVP award. He had a season for the ages as he threw 45 touchdown passes compared to just six interceptions. He also threw for 4,643 yards and had a 122.5 quarterback rating, which is the all-time record in the NFL.
In 2012, Rodgers followed that up with another stellar campaign, as he threw 39 touchdown passes versus just 8 picks. He threw for 4,295 yards and had a quarterback rating of 108.0.
However, Rodgers did not win the NFL MVP award. It went to running back Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings, who put together a marvelous season, as he had 2,097 rushing yards and had 12 touchdowns. "All Day" also caught 40 passes for 217 yards and had one receiving touchdown.
Bottom line, Rodgers would have won the NFL MVP award last season in most any other year. No. 12 should be expected to have the same type of numbers in 2013, just as he did in 2011 and 2012.
Quarterback Brett Favre won three straight NFL MVP awards from 1995-1997. Favre's two best back-to back seasons in that period totaled 77 touchdown passes, compared to 26 interceptions. No. 4 threw for 8,312 yards in those two years and had a combined quarterback rating of 97.7.
Compare that to the totals Rodgers put up in 2011-12. Rodgers threw a combined 84 touchdown passes versus just 14 picks. He also threw for 8,938 yards and had a quarterback rating of 115.3 over those two seasons.
Bottom line, the odds are very strong that Rodgers will put up another season worthy of winning the NFL's most prestigious individual award.
