The Associated Press loved Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ season so much that it awarded him 43-of-50 votes for 2011 Offensive Player of the Year, compared to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ seven.
Rodgers figures to have a better shot at AP NFL MVP.
In 2011, Brees broke Dan Marino’s single-season passing record, which had stood for 27 years. Brees also set league records for completions (450) and completion rate (71.6 percent).
Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow did not receive any votes.
