Aaron Rodgers: Super Bowl XLV MVP Accomplishes Something Brett Favre Could Not
Aaron Rodgers Leads the Green Bay Packers to Victory Over Pittsburgh Steelers
If he wasn't already, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is at long last free of the ever-nagging specter of Brett Favre.
Moreover, in leading his team to a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, Rodgers accomplished something that Favre never could: earn the Super Bowl MVP award.
Indeed. And Rodgers is most definitely deserving of the title, as he paced the Packers offense with 304 yards passing and three touchdown.
Back in Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots, Favre threw for 246 yards and two touchdowns, but he was not named the Super Bowl MVP. That honor went to Desmond Howard, who scored the game-clinching touchdown on a 99-yard kickoff return.
Like Favre used to be, Rodgers can now officially be counted among the upper echelon of NFL quarterbacks; he's right up there with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, and his future is undoubtedly brighter than either of theirs.
Yes sir, make no mistake, this is just the beginning for the third-year quarterback out of Cal (who, by the way, is the first Golden Bear QB to ever win a Super Bowl). As long as the Packers have him under center, the they're going to be very good for years to come.
It should be fun to watch. And with a big of luck, maybe we'll see Rodgers and the Pack in the Super Bowl next year.
