Brady, Rodgers win player of the month awards

Tom Brady

Tom Brady’s case for his second NFL MVP award included a strong final push.

The NFL named Brady its AFC Offensive Player of the Month for December/January.  It was Brady’s fourth player of the month award,  and his first this season.  He had eleven touchdowns and broke the league’s record for consecutive passes without an interception.

Aaron Rodgers won the honor in the NFC after leading the Packers to the playoffs.  Rodgers missed one game, but threw for eight scores with two interceptions in December and January.

Bucs running back LeGarrette Blount won the NFC Rookie of the Month award, while Chiefs safety Eric Berry won the AFC version.   Berry closed with 39 tackles (27 solo), eight passes defensed, two INTs with one TD during his strong stretch run.

    I think it’s great how Aaron just loves playing this game, being a Packer just does that to you. He’s like a kid out there!

    Rodgers but everything I write gets pulled.

    Ummmmm ….. if Michael Vick thinks HE’S the MVP, shouldn’t HE have won this instead of Rodgers?

    Just askin’

    Yep. Maybe a hint of what is yet to come? A shootout in February? Maybe? Hopefully?

    A rematch? Instead of Bledsoe and Favre it would be the two men that replaced them?

    Brady and Rogers. Just slingin’ it!

    I have to believe it would be a matchup the league and the network would welcome. I know of at least twenty people that would watch….

    Rodgers = 0 and 10 points against the Lions and Bears.

    I am happy for Rodgers he is on his way to be an elite NFL QB, some people think he is all ready there, with a solid playoff run he would silence any of the doubt about that.

    Apparently, the only people who think Vick deserves the MVP are Vick himself, the ghetto dwellers that support him and his homeboy Obama. Good thing nobody of importance really cares what any of them think.

    Kinda surprised to see Rodgers listed. He did nothing against the Lions in the first half before not playing in the 2nd half of the game. He didn’t even play in the New England game. Put up 10 points -vs- the Bears. How do you miss 1 1/2 games and still win player of the month???

    Way to take a page from the John Elway handbook of screwing up first names Rosenthal. Its the first word on the story, you should at least proof read a sentence.

    Still removing comments? Sorry about pointing out a mistake, Mr. George Rosenthal.

    Good for Rodgers. The Pack were wise to rid themselves of an ego maniac QB and go with the young guy. If they had kowtowed to the crying grandpa like a certain purple-wearing NFC North team did, then they would have lost Rodgers to a trade demand they couldn’t win. Then where would the Packers be?

    I like Rodgers as a star QB, but no way his last four games compare to what Josh Freeman accomplished. Who determines these awards?

  17. packerbacker12 says: Jan 6, 2011 4:19 PM

    Even as a Packer fan I am surprised Rodgers won this award. While he did put up 8 interceptions and only 2 interceptions, he missed one whole game and a half of another in which before he got hurt wasn’t playing too well.

    “Rodgers = 0 and 10 points against the Lions and Bears.”

    It’s funny how losers like you bash Rodgers for not winning any big games but once he does, beating the Bears to get the Packers into the playoffs, you still find ways to bash him. I honestly don’t really care how many points the Packers score as long as they score more then the other team.

    Packer fan and season tix holder…..and even I agree with you there. There’s about 3 NFC’ers that could’ve taken that nod…including Cutler had he not gone color blind again.
