Brees v.

OTHER NOTABLE STATS FROM 2011

REGULAR SEASON RECORD:
Brees 13-3
Rodgers 14-1(didn’t play the last game of the season)

GAMES W/5 PASSING TDS (via espn stats):
Brees 3
Rodgers 1

SACKS AND YARDS LOST FROM BEING SACKED (via nfl stats):
Brees 24/158
Rodgers 36/219
OTHER THINGS WORTH MENTIONING

BREES:
…Brees shattered Dan Marino’s 27-year-old mark by passing for 5,476 yards, and his 468 completions broke Peyton Manning’s 2010 record of 450. 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.

The above text is from the following article:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports...LqQ_story.html

RODGERS:
In the 2011 Green Bay’s backup quarterback, Matt Flynn, broke the record for most passing yards and passing touchdowns in a game by Green Bay quarterback.

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.
