PFT’s 2021 MVP: Aaron Rodgers

The woke mob has no power here.

Yes, Aaron Rodgers lied about being vaccinated, in order to avoid being criticized for not being vaccinated. Sure, he held the franchise and its fan base hostage with an offseason mystery regarding whether he’d retire, an effort that may have been as much about getting attention as sending a message to the Packers. Yep, he can be a bit of a jerk and even a low-key bully, using a weekly radio platform with Pat McAfee and A.J. Hawk to air grievances and settle scores — and also to unwittingly show the world a little too much of his ass.

Regardless, he’s the best player in the NFL. Better than Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes or any other quarterback or non-quarterback.

Brady came in second in our unofficial internal discussions; at age 44, he continues to do uncanny things. But the ultimate distinction appears on the playoff tree, where Rodgers took his team to the No. 1 seed, and Brady didn’t.

In a wide-open NFL season, avoiding the wild-card round and ensuring that only a pair of home wins results in a Super Bowl berth has tremendous value. Rodgers has tremendous value. He has incredible throwing skills, flick-of-the-wrist power, velocity, and accuracy that becomes even more impressive as he approaches 40.

In addition to Brady, we also considered Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who may soon be the perennial MVP for a Cincinnati franchise squarely on the rise. Still, the winner is Rodgers. Brady deserves it. Rodgers deserves it more. Setting aside all things unrelated to football (which hopefully most Associated Press voters did), it’s a no-brainer.

  1. Brady was suspended for cheating. Remember that.

    He should not be considered for any MVP award and should not get in the HOF.

  2. Rodgers isn’t better than Brady. It’s not even close. How many more seasons of doing nothing in the playoffs do you guys need to see? The Packers also could have won more game, if not for Rodgers lying about you know what. Keep that in mind. When the chips are all on the table, no one’s better than Tom.

  3. I respect the decision to give Rodgers the nod, but given that Brady led the league in passing yards, completions and TDs, and the obscure tie-breaker rule that gave Green Bay the #1 seed … saying it’s a no-brainer is a bit questionable.

  4. How insightful and original. It’s anything but a no brainer to anyone who knows about football.

  5. Had Rodgers thrown 43 touchdowns in the regular season and had the number two seed, they would still give him the award over Brady. It’s like the league is giving Aaron a pity party every other season because he doesn’t have anywhere near as many rings or playoff wins as the other guy.

  6. If we wait until after the playoffs, it could be Joe Burrow. The rest of the country is about to see what Bengal’s’ fans have been seeing.

  7. I agree though him and Brady are 1a and 1b. Hard to argue anyone was more baluable to their team than Burrow though. Took an entire franchise and turned it around w undrafted free agents mostly for an o line.

  8. The second year qb Burrow had almost the same stats as Rogers also what about Jonathan Taylor

    Brady smoked Rogers in every stat so how is Rogers better?

    ————————————————————-

    Every stat, really? Let’s take a look at that.

    Attempts – Rodgers 531 Brady 719
    Completions – Rodgers 386 Brady 485
    Completion % – Rodgers 68.9 Brady 67.5 – advantage Rodgers
    Yards – Rodgers 4115 Brady 5316
    TDs – Rodgers 37 Brady 43
    TD% – Rodgers 7 Brady 6 – advantage Rodgers
    Ints – Rodgers 4 Brady 12 – advantage Rodgers
    Int% – Rodgers 0.8 Brady 1.7 – advantage Rodgers (by more than double)
    Yards / attempt – Rodgers 7.4 Brady 7.4 – advantage Rodgers
    Yards / catch – Rodgers 11.2 Brady 11.0 – advantage Rodgers
    QB rating – Rodgers 111.9 Brady 102.1 – advantage Rodgers

    Still struggling to see why you think “Brady smoked Rodgers in every stat”

  10. Tbh I think Burrow’s stats are better than Rodgers. Better %, better YPA, 634 more yards, but 10 more INTs. Guess it depends on what you value more. Brady had a better season than either, though.

  11. lost respect for him – he should’ve been upfront from the get-go and said in no uncertain terms that he wasn’t vaccinated…. and then reminded people that he also didn’t owe anyone an explanation beyond that – his whole “I did my own research” song and dance after he was exposed made him look like a ridiculous clown – now, having said that… Go Pack Go!!

  12. LOL – you’re kidding

    If no Rodgers Green Bay still makes playoffs

    If no Brady – THE BUCS DON’T

  13. Brady lovers can hate this take on the MVP race all they want but I’d bet money if Brady and Rogers had to trade teams that the Bucs would definitely be the #1 seed and the pack would be lucky to even be playing in the post season. And there is no way in the world that the Saints would have swept the Bucs it Rogers had been under center.

    And just as a disclaimer….I can’t stand the Bucs or the Pack or for that matter Rogers or Brady.

  14. For those who don’t know, Rodgers may have thrown 37 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions, but over his last 15 games he played in, he was 13-1 and technically lost against Detroit but didn’t even play the second half. Rodgers only lost two games this year and threw 2 interceptions over the last 17 weeks of the football season. If Brady did that, he would be bragged about endlessly. Sure, Brady led in every statistical category. He also took almost 200 more passing attempts and ended the season with only 6 more touchdowns.

  15. As cool as I was with Arkush for having his reasons not to vote for Rodgers, I’m also cool with Florio crowning him as PFT’s selection for MVP, and with him winning it if he does. Great player!

  16. They should give the MVP award to Refs. They really deserves it with their Missed calls / Ridiculous PI and Roughness calls / Non-calls / Taunting calls.

  17. I can understand why Rodgers gets the MVP over Brady, but what does getting the no. 1 seed have to do with it? They had the same record. Did Aaron make sure 1 of his 4 loses was to an AFC teams to give him the conference record tiebreaker?

    I think it came down to Brady having better stats but Rodgers doing what he did with less help and more injuries.

    Good luck to Rodgers breaking the curse though. No MVP this century has won a championship.

  18. Don’t care about the “woke mob” but Brady and Burrow had a better season than Rodgers. Stop the crying about his politics. Really burrow did the most with the least. Brady is better at 44 than rodgers gas ever been.

  19. It’s a subjective guess as to who is the most valuable. I guess it’s between Burrows, Brady or Rogers. Herbert is as good or better than any of them but his team isn’t that good.

    It’s a regular season award. The problem is QBs really are only playing for Super Bowls. The MVP or similar awards are more important or applicable to non-QBs but it’s the QBs that get the awards. If Rogers gets 10 MVPs, it’s meaningless and actually a negative if he doesn’t have a lot of SB wins because people will say he’s not a clutch player.

  20. Mr. Florio, I was wrong about you and the MVP vote. BTW Congrats to Aaron Rodgers. He’s a complex individual, a heady negotiator, a skilled athlete, and a team player on the field. I have appreciated Aaron’s personality from watching the Pat McAfee show. I think the mainstream sports press doesn’t like him because he restricts access and enjoys privacy. How many people could survive the scrutiny of being an NFL QB? Hopefully, We all grow and expand our horizons through out life like he has. The fans’ and the media’s expectations are their’s not his. People forget he was a Junior College QB, not a big University free rider signing. I would characterize him as a hex peg getting thrusted into square holes. But he has had a remarkable year especially the lack of interceptions and done well with an offensive line that has suffered tremendously with injuries.

  21. Agreed. Rodgers is the best player in the NFL and most valuable to his team. Without him, the Packers are at best .500, or .499 I guess in the 17 game schedule.

  22. The best player was Brady…by your rationale Tannehill should be mvp because he got a 1 seed…doesn’t work that way…Brafy had better numbers and game winning drives than Rodgers by a lot, played all the games, didn’t artificially suppress his interceptions or pump up his completion % with dump offs, didn’t campaign for the award or lie about vax

    —————————————————————————————————————-
    Led the league… I would hope so when you attempt the most passes in NFL history. Never mind that Rodgers had a higher completion percentage and yards per attempt. Obscure tie-breaker? What is so obscure about it? The tie-breaking steps are crystal clear.

  24. Jonathan Taylor didn’t even make the playoffs! MVP can’t come from a non playoff team! Tom Brady might of had more yards but he doesn’t have the running game the Packers have!

  25. I’m fine with the pick. However, I’d like to see the NFL MVP retooled. The MVP is almost always the quarterback– 13 of the previous 14 years it was a quarterback. Due to the nature of the game, the quarterback makes the most decisions and impacts the team the most. But there is so much talent from non-quarterbacks, I feel it is a shame that they get overshadowed. My preference would be to get rid of the overall MVP award, and replace it with Most Valuable Quarterback. Then take the existing Offensive Player of the Year and rename it Most Valuable Offensive Player (non-quarterback), and take the existing Defensive Player of the Year and rename it Most Valuable Defensive Player. These would be three MVP awards, each given the same amount of weight, and announced at the same time. Just my opinion.

  26. I’m still sticking with these same voters kept TO out the hall for off the field stupidity take into account Rodgers actions. He’s been a distraction going into the season and managed to be one throughout

  27. Brady smoked Rogers in every stat so how is Rogers better?

    ————————————————

    It’s called efficiency, look at the passer rating!

  28. Even if you are not bothered by Rodgers being a lying weasel, Brady was statistically better, across the board. Brady was the better choice. Taylor 2nd.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    The key ingredient of luck was taken into account. Too many of Brady’s statistics were accomplished out of pure luck.

    Everybody knows that.

  30. Rodgers can win regular season mvp, but choke in the playoffs. Brady won both and no one has or will ever come close.

  31. Rodgers can win regular mvp, but he always choke in the playoffs. While Brady has won both, plus more rings than all the Packers franchise has ever won. 😆 🤣 😂

  32. Aaron played in 1.5 fewer games than Brady and Burrow so going by stats doesn’t exactly make the case for winning.

    Plenty of vaccinated players have had to miss games this year, so faulting Rodgers for getting Covid because hes unvaccinated and had to miss a game is kinda silly to me but oh well.

    GB lost 4 games this season, at least 2 of those losses showed his value to the team by his absence from the KC game and the 2nd half of the Lions game.

    He would get my vote for MVP but I wouldn’t be upset if Brady, Burrow, Taylor or Kupp won it either. With 50 votes they all may get some. It’s not an easy choice this year that’s for sure.

    All these guys are the MVPs of their respective teams, not sure how to value one over the other really but winning the top spot in the conference might just tip the scales in Rodgers favor.

  33. I would have voted for Watt. Much harder for ANY defensive player to win an MVP award but any guy that gets a record tying number of sacks in fewer games than Strahan gets my vote.

  34. Brady to me has had a better year than Rodgers but the hate for him out there means he won’t get it- Burrows has had the biggest effect on any team in the league( akin to Larry Bird with the 1980 Celtics) and has turned Cincinnati into a decent playoff contender- watching on from Ireland i am always amazed at the amount of hate there is out there for Tom Brady who i think should be celebrated as one of America’s all time great athletes , and without question the most impactFUL player in the history of the NFL .

  35. How can anyone qualify for MVP if they don’t play all the games. For me it’s Brady 1, Kupp 2, and Roger’s 3.

  36. 1st off, the amount of people that can’t spell Rodgers right is truly hilarious.

    2ndly Henry would have won if he had stayed Healthy.

    But Allen should really be the front runner here. Brady and Rodgers both have an arsenal of weapons, what does Allen have besides Diggs and Knox? He ran for 700 on top of throwing over 4000 yards. IDK I think that the fight to win the AFC North and the stats should be taken into consideration. Brady and Rodgers both barely had a fight in their divisions.

  37. 2020: Rodgers wins MVP, Brady defeats Rodgers in playoffs and wins Super Bowl
    2021: Rodgers wins MVP, ???

    LFG!!!

    You’re talking like having Diggs and Knox as weapons is not a big deal. Diggs coming to Buffalo turned Allen into an elite QB.

    Is Allen MVP? No. 15 INTs and regression compared to his season last year across the board. When Mac Jones has a higher passer rating this year than you (92.5 to 92.2) then you’re not MVP.

  42. Brady had nearly 200 more passing attempts than Rodgers…talk about dink and dunk.
    —————-

    Rodgers 7.7 YPA and Brady 7.4. Shouldn’t Brady have a lower YPA if just a dink and dunk passer or is Rodgers one as well?

  43. Brady clearly is the MVP, but they’ll give it to Rodgers to satisfy the Brady-jealous mob. Let’s see which team goes furthest. Go Bucs!!!

    I guess you missed the Packers Chiefs game if you think GB makes the playoffs without Rodgers.

  45. Against common opponents (LAR, NO, WFT, Chi):

    Rodgers: 4-1

    Brady: 1-4

    Against playoff teams:

    Rodgers: 5-1

    Brady: 4-1

  46. I’d love to see what Rodgers would do with that Tampa offense. He hasn’t had a supporting cast like that since 2011.

    … even moreso, I’d love to see Rodgers in that Bengals offense. He’d probably go undefeated.

  47. If we wait until after the playoffs, it could be Joe Burrow. The rest of the country is about to see what Bengal’s’ fans have been seeing.
    ==========

    He’s going to get plenty of chances.

    He had a few pretty rough games this year, otherwise, the Bengals could have been the top team in the AFC.

    .. I’d love to see that team in the Super Bowl though. I hope they ride that wave of momentum.

  48. Lots of Rodgers apologists keep pointing to wins as a tiebreaker or why he is more deserving. Can we please make up our minds? Are wins a QB stat or not? You all like to say no when pointing out Brady’s wins. Let’s be consistent here.

  49. They don’t give MVP awards to guys’ whose teams don’t even qualify for the postseason

    —-
    Yeah. I mean how valuable are you if your team didn’t make the playoffs? Without you your team is 2-15 instead of 8-9? LOL. I’d rather be 2-15 and take the high draft pick. 🙂

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________

    20 years of history make this the most obvious Brady answer ever. Even if you want to plug your ears and cover your eyes, let’s look at last year’s NFCC game and Rodgers’ inability to score multiple times in the red zone…..AT HOME.

  51. I guess you missed the Packers Chiefs game if you think GB makes the playoffs without Rodgers.

    I guess you’ve seen the Bucs Backup QB enough to know they would make the playoffs without Brady.

    Neither team makes the Playoffs with the Starting QB

  52. Your NOT a MVP unless you WIN the Super Bowl. Let’s see ON Feb 13th after the game.

    0-6 2 FG
    In a game a couple off weeks first and goal from the ONE yard line 0-3

  54. “But what about Burrow and Brady, they are good too!”
    Of course they are, they’re both fantastic and had great seasons.

    They also both threw about the same number of interceptions this season than Rodgers has in the last four seasons combined. Rodgers has never been a massive yards or completions guy… he’s phenomenally efficient. In fact, Rodgers might not throw as many interceptions in the rest of his NFL career as either Burrow or Brady threw this season.

    MVP isn’t “who’s the greatest QB ever” award. We all know that’s Brady.

    Mac Jones won a game throwing 3 passes. That right there will forever be the trump card against anyone who thinks a QB is better because he has more wins than another guy.

    Rodgers is MVP because he means more to his team than Brady does and this year he is a better QB this year. Period. And if Tommy was able to score just 10 points against the Taysom Hill Saints instead of being shut out, the Bucs would be the 1 seed. Nuff said.

    Just like if any other QB had the most yards, completions and TDs for the season. Unanimous MVP chants for any other but Brady. I am not saying Brady should be the MVP either. Just pointing out the obvious.

  57. I’d love to see what Rodgers would do with that Tampa offense. He hasn’t had a supporting cast like that since 2011.
    ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    He has the best WR in the game and a better running game than the Bucs. Quantity of weapons, agreed Brady has more. If Rodgers had those weapons maybe he would have had 6 more TDs and 1,200 more yards…….thereby catching up to Brady.

    Brady also had about 180 more attempts – give Rodgers 180 more throws and he is well over 5,000 yards with probably 10 more TD’s. So to imply Brady was better is very questionable.

  59. Brady to me has had a better year than Rodgers but the hate for him out there means he won’t get it- Burrows has had the biggest effect on any team in the league( akin to Larry Bird with the 1980 Celtics) and has turned Cincinnati into a decent playoff contender
    ===========

    Rodgers is the most hated player in the sport right now, not just for his vaccine status.

    Burrow didn’t do it alone. That is the most talented collection of skill players in the League, and the D was top 10 prior to a late season nosedive.

  60. Alright, alright…..enough already.
    We obviously all have our different opinions about who deserves to win the 2021 NFL MVP Award and everyone brings up some very valid points.

    Well, at least the ones who have argued for Aaron Rodgers, because obviously he has earned it over everyone else….but I digress. 😉

    Can we at least come together and agree on one simple fact?
    That Russell Wilson is going to continue through with his career and still not garner a single vote for this award. 🙂
    Letting Russ cook indeed.

    They lost by six to a prior-year SuperBowl team, on the road, with a first-time young QB facing blitzes on 82% of the plays. I saw all I needed to see…….the Chiefs are overrated.

  62. Swept the NFC West; Swept the AFC North; Won the NFC North, Respected by all, inside the building where it really matters and the Packers are having fun. Great regular season, now the post-season is upon us. I don’t really care if he wins the MVP this year, Packer fans want the Lombardi back in Green Bay. Time will tell and we will shall see in this next chapter. Go Pack Go!!!

    NOT 1 ring, ‘3 and OUT’ Rodgers.

    ==========

    Good one, definitely.

    Montana or Elway.. weather would have to be the tiebreaker. If conditions were poor, Elway.

  65. You have to want to date Tom Brady pretty badly to overlook the fact that he could score ONE POINT after his weapons went down, while Rodgers beat the only remaining unbeaten team in the NFL when he lost his weapons.

    Also, barely beating the Jets, Eagles Patriots, Texans, and losing to the Rams (who the Packers beat), the WFT, And getting swept by a team in his division, Tommy has proven that he is absolutely nothing without a supporting cast.

  66. Rogers had the Ball first and goal TWICE in the NFCCG last season.
    0-6 2 FG
    ==========

    2:22, 1st-and-goal at the 8

    Allen Lazard, wide open, no one within 3 yards of him…. wasn’t looking for the ball, would be game winner zipped right over his head.

  67. The Rodgers pick is a “no brainer”? Really? By what measure? QBR? Nope. A sliver of daylight between Brady and Rodgers. Completion percentage? Ditto. But Brady has 119 more completions, 1,200 more yards and six more touchdown passes than Rodgers. He led a team ravaged by injuries to a division title and the No. 2 seed. A no-brainer? C’mon man.

  68. Facts. Brady has more Trophies than all Packers will ever have.
    ==========

    Fact checker……… *BUZZER* Not correct

    Brady 7
    Packers 13

  69. He has the best WR in the game and a better running game than the Bucs.
    ==========

    The running game is even money.

    Jones and Dillon had the virtually the same amount of scrimmage yards as Fournette, Jones and Bernard.

    Yes, I would agree Adams is the best WR of the two teams… but collectively? Give me a break. Evans, Godwin and Brown, compared to the Packers group? Same with the TEs. Howard would be the Packers best TE. He can’t even get on the field in Tampa.

    Brady is the most successful QB ever and that’s about it. That doesn’t mean greatest.

  73. Brady was suspended for cheating. Remember that.

    He should not be considered for any MVP award and should not get in the HOF.

    —————————

    TB12 was not suspended for cheating but because the NFL Could! So Many Haters….convenient to believe in what has been proven to be false…………Both Bucs and Packers would not make the playoffs without their starting QB though Gabbert might win more games than Love.

  74. Rodgers beat the only remaining unbeaten team in the NFL when he lost his weapons.

    Please!!
    In that game Rogers completed LESS than 60% of his passes DIID NOT complete a pass over 10 yards in the air. They rushed for over 150 yards and of. It for an INt in the end zone they don’t win.

    Another perfect example of what a previous poster pointed out “QB wins are not a stat when Brady wins but “Rogers beat” smh.

    Funny you left out the part about Rogers um I mean the Packers losing to the Saints also

  75. As a Packers fan I’ve lost some respect for Rodgers and just don’t care for his persona. I used to. He seemed thoughtful and respectful but has become self-centered and difficult to like. That said he deserves the MVP. It’s more about stats. He didn’t play in the preseason and had half his picks (2) in the first game. He missed his two best OL, one for the whole year. They started two rookies on the O-line, had a UDFA at LT for half the season who needed help, lost his TE (who should have been a ProBowler last year) and lost two games in which he QB’d the whole game. He was forced to get the ball out more quickly in years past and had half the receiving talent that Brady had.

    His team had 2 (two!) Players selected to the Pro Bowl ( he was one). And the team in general had many of their best players out for much of the year. He deserves the award and it’s not that close.

    I guess you missed the Packers Chiefs game if you think GB makes the playoffs without Rodgers.

    I guess you’ve seen the Bucs Backup QB enough to know they would make the playoffs without Brady.

    Neither team makes the Playoffs with the Starting QB


    I was only responding to the point that the Packers would have made the playoffs without Rodgers. No they wouldn’t.

    You have to want to date Tom Brady pretty badly to overlook the fact that he could score ONE POINT after his weapons went down, while Rodgers beat the only remaining unbeaten team in the NFL when he lost his weapons.

    Also, barely beating the Jets, Eagles *Patriots*

    —————
    While posting a passer rating 30 points less than a rookie Mac Jones in that game.

    That’s 30 as in three-zero. LOL.

    In what might have been the biggest regular season game of his life. Completely outplayed by Mac “3 passes” Jones. LOL.

    But that’s the GOAT or so we’re told. LOL.

    Yes it is but when your team misses the playoffs how valuable are you really to your team?
    And it’s not like there are zero other MVP worthy players in the league who did make the playoffs.

    Taylor can win OPOY – that’s the statistically most dominant player on offense. MVP has to go to the most valuable player.

    While that may be true, he doesn’t trail nearly as much going into the 4th quarter (29 times in 15 years) so is he punished for having the lead more often ?

    You need to bring in career numbers to make Brady worthy of this award?

  84. MVP award is so stupid. No team is successful solely because of one player, and all players, regardless of position, need other players to perform well for themselves to perform well.

  85. I dont get why people pretend like Rodgers has a garbage team around him. Their OL, while injured, has played well. Adams and Jones are great players, and Lazard, Cobb and St Brown are solid complementary pieces. Their defense is really good too. I’m a Patriots fan and it reminds me of those who argue that Brady played with garbage players his whole career. Just because someone isn’t an all pro or pro bowler doesn’t mean they aren’t a good player.

    Rodgers beat the only remaining unbeaten team in the NFL when he lost his weapons.

    Please!!
    In that game Rogers completed LESS than 60% of his passes DIID NOT complete a pass over 10 yards in the air. They rushed for over 150 yards and of. It for an INt in the end zone they don’t win.

    Another perfect example of what a previous poster pointed out “QB wins are not a stat when Brady wins but “Rogers beat” smh.

    Funny you left out the part about Rogers um I mean the Packers losing to the Saints also
    ____________________________________________

    Rodgers also had ample practice time with those backups in the few days leading up to the game. Whereas Brady lost Godwin, Evans and Fournette in the middle of the game. Of course, both players had a great season and certainly made other players around them better, but also received help from the players around them. At the end of the day, both Brady and Rodgers stans make the same exact arguments against the other QB but get angry when one makes that argument against their own QB.

    I respect the decision to give Rodgers the nod, but given that Brady led the league in passing yards, completions and TDs, and the obscure tie-breaker rule that gave Green Bay the #1 seed … saying it’s a no-brainer is a bit questionable.

    Do you really think if it weren’t for the obscure tie breaker rules favoring G.B. the Packers would have played their third stringers for most of the game against Detroit? Do you really think G.B. would’ve lost that game if it mattered?

  89. Lots of guys here don’t know the difference between Best Player and MVP. There’s a difference.

    Also, barely beating the Jets, Eagles Patriots, Texans, and losing to the Rams (who the Packers beat), the WFT, And getting swept by a team in his division, Tommy has proven that he is absolutely nothing without a supporting cast.

    ________________________________________

    He was the best player on the field against the Jets, didn’t play the Texans this season, and the Eagles came back bc of the Bucs committing penalties and going for it on 4th down. Margin of victory doesn’t matter. I do think Rodgers is MVP, but you should realize he has a pretty good team around him too. It’s a team sport. No HOF QB (Brady and Rodgers included) has had success by themselves. They all had great and good players around them.

    Oh sorry GUY , I should have clarified for you.
    It has nothing to do with the MVP. It was in reference to “who would you want leading a 4th q comeback…

  93. Rodgers had a similar season to last year and with all his shenanigans should never be considered as the MVP, Brady had better stats, but he is not the MVP either. The MVP to his team, all the noise aside is Joe Burrows hands down!

    I’m not hating they did what they had to do to win with what they had.
    But in that game they did what they (they the Brady haters) claim is what he does his entire career. But when Rogers did the same thing they claim Brady does it’s “Rogers was amazing “.
    Simply pointing out the hypocrisy..

  96. both Brady and Rodgers stans make the same exact arguments against the other QB but get angry when one makes that argument against their own QB.

    Eh.. it’s all in good fun. I would hope no one takes it personally….

    Wow, Aaron Rodgers actually has the least amount of losses trailing into the 4th quarter out that impressive group? 🤔
    I never would’ve guessed, that’s amazing.
    Kudos to Aaron again.
    Thanks for pointing that out! 😃

  100. Brady fans are too funny. They get so offended and take it so personally when NFL fans appreciate other great players instead of just their precious #Tommy. 😀

    No wonder the Parkers and Kellermans and Wrights of the media have fun with them. They’re just that so easy to trigger! lololol

  101. It’s always humbling when the Almighty blesses the most successful franchise in the NFL with yet another MVP level performance.

    Don’t you love football season?

    Yeah that’s a good point too..

  103. It’s either Rodgers or Brady, end of story. Joe Burrow is not in the conversation. He’s a fantastic QB and he’s going to have a great career, but he’s not the MVP. Hell, no one even considers Pat Mahomes and he arguably had a better season than Burrow. Mahomes had more wins 12-10, more yards 4839-4611, more TDs 37-34, fewer Ints 13-14, and made significantly more plays with his feet (rushing yards 381-118). Nothing against Joe, but it’s Rodgers or Brady.

    On a side note, over the last 4 seasons Rodgers has 136 TDs and 15 Ints…that is batsh!t insane.

  104. GoodellMustGo says:
    Brady is the most successful QB ever and that’s about it. That doesn’t mean greatest.

    I mean, I don’t disagree. But that’s kind of parsing words. Dude’s played forever, won seemingly non-stop, and he seems to elevate everyone around him in that regard.

    Would you surprise you at all if he somehow ended up on another team next year and took them deep into the playoffs or won the whole thing? Not me. (not saying I think this is going to happen or anything, just chatting)

  105. 2016

    Rodgers 4428 yards, 40 TD, 7 int, 104.2 rating
    Brady 3554 yards, 28 TD, 2 int, 112.2 rating

    Aaron Rodgers won the MVP.

    Brady has taken the franchise with the worst W-L % in NFL history to a SB championship (yr 1) and tied for NFL best record (yr 2), and the MVP in not one but BOTH of these years is supposedly the same player on another team. Tell me again what the criteria are supposed to be….

    2020 Bucs defense – #8

    2021 Bucs offense – #2
    2021 Bucs defense – #5 (d@mn impressive with no secondary)

    But, hey, sure, it was all Brady………………….

  107. Rodgers also has the #1 passer rating, #1 QBR, highest TD %, lowest INT %, and the highest adjusted net-yards per pass attempt. He didn’t need to throw around 1,000 yards and 200 pass attempts like a certain someone because he came on the field, got the job done, and handed the ball off in the 4th quarter to ice the game.

    Is Allen MVP? No. 15 INTs and regression compared to his season last year across the board. When Mac Jones has a higher passer rating this year than you (92.5 to 92.2) then you’re not MVP.

    How do you like them apples Pats fans?

    Allen is more valuable to his team than any player in the league, and by the end of this playoffs, everyone will know it.
