The NFL's Most Valuable Player award is highly coveted and earned by the player that is considered the most valuable in the league. The word valuable is defined as, "of considerable importance or quality." In 2011, it would seem as if Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers has earned that title.

As of Week 12 of the 2011 season, Rodgers has completed 70.6 percent of his passes for 3,844 yards with 37 touchdowns and only five interceptions. All of this adds up to an unbelievable 125.3 quarterback rating. 

He surpasses Brees in almost every statistical category. Brees has thrown for 4,031 yards and completed 70.4 percent of his passes along the way. He has also thrown 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Brees currently has a very good 105.5 quarterback rating. Passing yards is the only category in which Brees leads Rodgers. 

Rodgers' Packers are also 12-0 and have already beaten Brees' Saints, who are currently 9-3. So, how then, does Brees deserve the 2011 NFL MVP more than Rodgers?
