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.
