Brees finished the season completing 71.6 percent of his passes, breaking his own 2009 NFL record (70.6). He also surpassed 300 yards passing for seven straight games and 13 times during the season, both beating league marks he already held … Thanks to Brees’ brilliance, the Saints set several single-season records, including offensive yards with 7,474 and first downs with 416.

How did Rodgers 'deserve it' more than Brees?

Stats and W/L.

Close, but Rodgers by a nose, especially if you look at interceptions.

I'm a homer so I'd rather have Brees, but Rodgers deserved it.

Rodgers got it because of the playoffs last year. Next year, if Brees wins at least 12, they will give it to him regardless.

Rogers played well enough to win it, no doubt. But, Brees played equally well, and those close to the teams in question, if they're being honest, would surely side with Brees as to who is most 'valuable'.

Either way, the award is a joke. It should be called the media favorite award, because that's all it is.

yep, they will give it to brees by default because they snubbed him for a few years in a row now
