Doesn't make sense...
because statistically wise Brees had the best year, he broke records, etc. Rodgers was the best player on the best team (record wise) and probably is the best player
Is my guess.
Matt Flynn quarterbacked the greatest game in packer history in his abscense, so I doubt they wouldve pulled a 2011 Colts without Rodgers. And then Brees was voted best offensive player. I just don't get how those 2 things happen, and it's Rodgers with the MVP?
I don't know if Flynn is special, or it's the system, but either way week 17 proved Rodgers wasn't the linchpin to the teams success.
I think Rodgers had a better year than Brees. He played in 15 games and had 45 TDs to 6 INTs, that is just insane. If he played against the lions he would have had more TDs than Brees and would have hit 5000 yards. Brees put up a lot of yards but he only had 1 more TD and way more INTS than Rodgers.
What Flynn did has nothing to do with Rodgers other than prove that he is a very good backup QB and possibly a starter somewhere else.
Did you not pay attention to what I said? I never said Rodgers didn't deserve it. Flynn playing the way he did proved one thing; The Packers offensive system is a powerhouse. Flynn having the game he did against a playoff team trying to get a better seed proves the Packers do not depend on Rodgers for everything.
So, clearly Rodgers isn't the most "valuable" player to his team in that literal sense. Take that point, and factor in the voters saying brees was the best offensive player in football. If Rodgers wasn't the best offensive player in their eyes, and at the same time he wouldn't be missed by his team as much as others due to Flynn, makes the way THEY voted make no sense.
If Drew Brees got hurt, the saints would be WAY more devastated than if GB lost Rodgers. I think everyone would agree with that. Now if they think Brees was the better offensive player, how is Rodgers the MVP? He's not the most valuable to his team, and he wasn't the best offensive player according to voters. You get what I mean? How is he MVP then, when he isn't even 1 of the two MVP factors?
