I would prefer he voted for Brees but I can understand his reasoning, even thou I don't agree with all of it.

I find it ironic that one of his reasons for voting for Rodgers was the Packers winning 13 straight.

Brees and the Saints did the same thing in '09 and he STILL voted for Peyton Manning.

Everyone seems to forget we lost to GB in Lambeau by single digit yaradage. As my memory serves, Aaron Rogers wasn't on the field to make the last stop against the Saints offense inside the redzone.

As I've already said in some other thread, and I know most of you agree, there is no single player in the NFL who is more valuable to his team than Brees is to the Saints...and it's not even close.

If it's a statistical award only, well, even then Brees has a valid argument, but, if it's a combination of stats and intangibles and community then the award is Drew's, period. And I'm not being a homer either.

Anybody who looks beyond the stats cannot argue. We all saw what the GB backup was able to do yesterday. He even eclipsed Rodgers performance. Case closed.

But the media will give the award to Rodgers because they have that GB stiffy going right now.

In the end, when Drew is inducted into the Hall of Fame, he will take the high road and won't mention the fact that the league slighted him year after year after year, but we'll all know it to be true.

They should validate the aware and give the MVP to Drew. Period.

I'd probably vote for Rodgers too. He's been phenominal.

My case against Rodgers is as follows: Matt Flynn 31/44 480yds 6tds 136.4 passer rating with same offense minus greg jennings against playoff bound lions. Sounds to me like the packers wouldnt miss rodgers nearly as much as the saints and patriots would miss there QBs.

I agree with Danno...15-1 is impressive.

Great point. But like I've said before, let Rogers have MVP, Brees can be Superbowl MVP.......... AGAIN.
