Those top 3-5 spots are kinda the same, its so hard to say who is better of Brees, Rodgers and Brady, I mean they are all fantastic QBs in their own right. I don't see it as Brees got robbed, I'm just happy we have a QB who belongs in the discussion.

I give Brees the 1 spot, maybe its because I have a strong dislike for Rodgers. I just don't see how a player that wasn't offensive or defensive MVP could be NFL MVP, so I'm just a big Rodgers hater.

Rodgers deserves his accolades. He had a hell of a year. I'd take Brees any day though. Rodgers is kind of a Richard.

Brees clearly deserves the #1 spot, but we all know he will never get it. He kicked everyones butt in the leader boards in 2011.

same as Manning stole 1 or 2 MVP's from Brees because of their media hard on for Manning and Brady.

So the players just told the world that you can break a 27 year old record that NFLN said was unbreakable at one point and you are only the 2nd best player in the league, wow just wow

Just to play devil's advocate, I think the reason Rodgers got the vote is interceptions. Brees had 14, Rodgers 6. (According to football outsiders, who count dropped interceptions and discount interceptions caused by a tip by your own man, Rodgers had 4 passes last year which should have been intercepted, Brees 17.) That's why Rodgers got it. Defenders always feel they have a chance with Brees, defenders votes swung it. IMO.
