Matt Flynn just lost the MVP for Rodgers.
No way they can give it to Rodgers now after seeing what Flynn did. Brees has this locked up.
Well since Matt Flynn put up better stats against Detroit than Drew Brees maybe he's better than Brees. I can do this to. I can't stand people that make silly arguments like this. His QB Rating for this game was a tad higher than Rodgers' for the whole season. Are you implying that Flynn could play like this every game? Because that is close to what Rodgers did this season.
The people that think Brees deserves the MVP over Rodgers just don't know football. Drew Brees threw 150 more passes than Rodgers. It took him 60 more passes to hit 5087 yards than it took Marino to hit 5084. In every single QB efficiency stat with the exception of completion %, Rodgers is substantially better. Rodgers only threw 502 passes this year. Arguably the best season ever by a QB. All Brees did is throw a gazillion passes this year. Way more than any other QB. In a comfy dome. The MVP voters will rightfully give it to Rodgers. How else do you explain the Packers having a worse defense and rushing offense than the Saints yet having a better record? Answer that question. Green Bay has the best record in the NFL with the 2nd worst defense and one of the worst rushing offenses in the NFL. How can Brees have possibly had the better season? It makes no sense to anybody that actually knows something about football.
There is no way an MVP allows his team to lose to a 2-14 team. Absorb that for a second. Drew Brees lost to the Rams. One of just two teams that they beat. That's a pretty significant blemish. Seriously. The Rams beat two teams and Brees team was one of them. If you break down the stats. Brees isn't the same guy on the road. Rodgers' stats are almost identical at home or on the road. By far the most consistent QB in the NFL.

Pretty sure not. They aren't voted on until after the season is over.
They talked about it on the morning shows how it would affect the MVP race if Rodgers doesn't play and Brees puts up huge numbers.
It shouldn't. Its silly to use the fact that Rodgers has played so well that he doesn't even need to play the final game against him. If you ignore the bulk stats and just look at the numbers, Rodgers was significantly better. The Saints were also pretty classless chasing that yardage record. Rodgers has been pulled in the 3rd quarter three times and several more times with at least half the 4th quarter left. Mike McCarthy is a classy coach and doesn't believe in running up the score like Sean Payton and Bill Belichick. Rodgers easily could have broken Marino's record and surpasses Brady's 50 TD mark.
I mean we're really supposed to use stats that Brees compiled in a meaningless Week 17 game against a terrible team to solidify his MVP credentials over a guy that didn't even play because he played at arguably the highest level in NFL history. I'm sure plenty of voters will go with Brees but Rodgers should get the award. His team had a better record despite having the 2nd worst defense in the NFL and a substantially worse ground game than the Saints.
