Davante Adams: Pretty clear Aaron Rodgers is the MVP

NFL: JAN 03 Packers at Bears

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said last week that winning the NFL’s MVP award for a third time was important to him and he did his best on Sunday to ensure he winds up with the prize.

Rodgers was 19-of-24 for 240 yards and four touchdowns in a 35-16 win that clinched the top seed in the NFC for Green Bay. He finished the season with a career-high 48 touchdown passes, which also led the league this season. He was also tops in completion percentage and passer rating.

After the game, wide receiver Davante Adams did a little advertising for his teammate and said it is “pretty clear to me” that he’s the league’s most valuable player.

“The MVP should be locked up,” Adams said, via the team’s website. “There’s nothing else to really talk about. You look at what we’ve done and what he’s been able to do, and they’ve hit him with everything. [They] said he didn’t have any weapons, and we go out there and go 13-3 regular season, which isn’t our main goal, obviously, but it’s a hell of an accomplishment, especially when you’re in your second year with a new staff.”

Adams has a dog in the hunt, but it has become difficult to make a strong argument against Rodgers for MVP over the final weeks of the regular season.

  1. He deserves it over Josh Allen, for sure. I’d be delighted to see the Bills face the Packers in the super bowl to see who gets the other, more important MVP award

  2. The guy has Adams and three guys who’d play special teams on any other roster.

    He also made Robert Tunyan a household name.

    That’s an MVP in my book.

  3. He can have it, despite being only 1-2 against teams with winning records. We’ll see if that record carries over where all the teams he plays has winning records or if the packers can play better against better teams.

  4. Very clear indeed. What else is very clear is that the Packers have the number 1 QB / WR tandem in the league. Way to set personal goals and achieve them to both of these top notch men. Very proud to be a Packer fan with the team / coaching staff that we have right now – they treat their profession with as much professionalism as a CEO of a company would.

  5. How can anyone deny AR of the MVP award especially since all the NFL experts and fans consistantly and loudly berated Packers management for not selecting a sleek young stud reciever in the draft to help AR out this season instead selecting the quarterback of their future Jordan Love.AR went 13-3 with only one top reciever and no established number two reciever on the roster,won the NFCN, won home field advantage througout the playoffs,threw 48 td passes,and had a very high passer rating all season, what more did he have to do to capture the MVP award.

  6. Josh Allen has made an equally strong case this year, and where would the Bills be without Allen?

  7. Nice your WR has your back and lobbying for you – the MVP will mean nothing with out a NFC Title and nothing short of a Super Bowl victory. The time has come for Rodgers to prove he can win the big one. I think he can but as we all know No. 1 seeds do not guarantee titles and Seahawks defense has stepped up as of late.

  8. GB has zero excuses for not winning a Super Bowl this year. This is their best team top to bottom since their last Bowl win. They have had no missed games by meaningful players from Covid and they seem to be one of a handful of teams doing well to manage it. Back to back 13-3 seasons, one with an MVP QB, with no Bowl win would absolutely suck for their players and their fans. I’ll take one of the other 13 teams to win it all though.

  9. I get the sense that Rodgers and Adams know MVP is probably where their success ends this year and not in a Super Bowl. Otherwise, why in the world would you keep talking about it? I don’t really recall a player or team whining for an award so badly before. It’s kind of pathetic really.

  10. If the Packers win the Super Bowl Rodgers stays in Green Bay, if they lose I think he is gonna move on. There is a lot riding in this play-off run for the Packers a loss and no Super Bowl could mean the organization may wanna kick the tires on the shiny new toy they took with the first pick MVP or not.

    However in the NFC I don’t see anyone really competing with Green Bay, maybe the Saints or Bucs if they catch Rodgers on a bad day. Again, there is a lot riding on this play-off run. Its basically Super Bowl or bust after two 13-3 seasons and it is a results driven league.

    He’s not going anywhere unless Packers say so because of contract.

  12. MVP awards are nice and Aaron now has 3.👏

    As Aaron said himself: “It’s not why you play the game. You play the game to dominate, to compete and to win rings”

    The Packers are the #1 seed in the NFC. That was just one mission on the road to World Championship #14. The focus now is the next step on the path to #14.

    Locked and Loaded✊

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Looking back over the season, the Packers only played seven teams with a losing record…….at the time the games were played. What more can you ask?

  14. I can’t believe the Vikings needed their best offensive output of the year, against one of the worst defenses in the NFL, to avoid double digit losses.

    That’s the difference between having an MVP caliber player and having Cousins.

  15. Yes, our Vikings just keep winning championships. They don’t care ’bout no stinkin’ individual honors.

  16. Adams better say that, or Aaron will not throw him the ball any more lol. Hate to say it Davante but Aaron makes a bad receiver look good and a good receiver look great. You are a good receiver.

  17. Rodgers getting the MVP this year is not just rodgers’ ultimate goal. It appears Adams also shares that ultimate goal

  18. It’s refreshing to hear the commitment every member of the Packers shares for the ultimate goal of winning another SuperBowl.
