Aaron Rodgers MVP? [NoeBrainer]

I, like a lot of fans, was premature in proclaiming that Aaron Rodgers was having the greatest season of any quarterback in NFL history.  Is it possible that Rodgers isn’t even the MVP this year?

Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees have both had stellar seasons in 2011.  Aaron Rodgers leads the league in touchdown passes (40), passer rating (120.1), and wins (13).  That’s tough to argue with.  However, the season isn’t finished.  Drew Brees leads the league in passing yardage (4,780), while throwing 37 touchdown passes for the 11-3 New Orleans Saints.  That’s nothing to sneeze at.

The Green Bay Packers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday 19-14.  The Packers have suffered a few injuries on their offensive line.  With this in mind, Green Bay might opt to rest Aaron Rodgers at the end of the season as the playoffs draw near.  This could impact his individual numbers for the season.

The Packers haven’t clinched home-field advantage for the playoffs yet.  Green Bay will need to win one more game this season to clinch the #1 seed in the NFC.  Home games against the Bears and Lions are the only games remaining on Green Bay’s schedule.  My guess is that Rodgers will have a strong day in a win against the Bears.  I believe it’ll be enough for Rodgers to win the MVP this season.  I know this though; the MVP race will be a lot closer than we originally thought earlier this season.  Brees is lighting it up.
