Aaron Rodgers wins third NFL MVP award

The most valuable player in the league resides in Green Bay once again. 

 

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has won his third AP NFL Most Valuable Player award. 

Rodgers set personal bests and new franchise records in 2020 with 48 TD passes and by completing 70.7% of his throws. 

Rodgers also became the first QB to lead the league in passer rating, TD passes, completion percentage and interception percentage since Steve Young in 1992.

Thanks to friend of CHTV Mitchell Pantzke for sharing the special graphic above that he produced to celebrate Rodgers' accomplishment.

The Packers may not allow him to win another Super Bowl.
But another MVP ain't half bad at 37 years old.

Some Packer fans wrote Rodgers off at various times over the last 6 years.
I said two things to those people over the years.
1) Rodgers didn't just forget how to play QB in the NFL

2) I'll ride with Rodgers until the very end.

I'm an intelligent veteran Packer fan. I'm not a spoiled fan who thinks the Packers will have a HOF QB under center until the end of time because they don't know any better.
I recognize, appreciate greatness when i see it. Don't take having a HOF QB for granted because chances are you will be highly disappointed, sooner than you think.

That was a well deserved MVP for Rodgers. This is a team sport and we are so fortunate to have the best to player in the NFL filling the most important position for our Green Bay Packers.

Great individual accomplishment. Huge team letdown. Rodgers now has the same number of NFL MVP's as Brady. Though Brady also has four SB MVP's (so far), to Rodgers' one (so far). Well deserved, and congratulations.
But...

How about this: The MVP of the league would have made the right decision to tuck the ball and run nine yards for the score with two minutes to go against Tampa. Instead, all the media talked around this obvious fact and spun narratives about Rodgers so they can flap their mouths more. Pathetic.
He may be the MVP, but the 'better QB', the GOAT went to the SB
From what I heard, Rodgers talked about himself at the acceptance. He 'takes a lot of pride in himself'. Not great team, or great coaching or great offensive line, or great running game. Instead, thanks girlfriend. Pathetic.

Ok, I screwed up and made comment before watching Rodgers acceptance speech. He DID thank everyone. So I officially apologize for my previous comment.

One man can't win the SB all by himself...What an original statement? (tongue firmly planted in cheek). The issue for the Packers, and we all know this was the defense. Until that is addressed and hopefully it has with this new hire. The problem has been "defensive basics" (tackling), Scheme and lack od quality players at all levels of the defense. It's time to get serious! (how many times does that have to be said?)

Defense turns Tampa over three times in the fourth. MLF decides to run an empty backfield against a speed rushing front four. Three points for three turnovers. Yeah. Kicking a field goal down by 8. Yeah. All year this defense came through. They put this team in a position to win. What did MLF do. Put his QB in a hole right out of the box in the fourth. I don't want to hear a damn thing about Pettine or King. This game is squarely on Matt Lafleur, no one else. PERIOD! (Yes I'm still angry…)

Nice award sure, I wish for once the Packers would have surrounded the offense with a tough assignment sharp defense, no screw ups in coverage just a shutdown defense who plays the smart game. I sit here outside of Boston and look back at Brady over the years, sure tremendous QB always there when the big game comes around. Is he better than Rodgers his SB trophies say yes. Rodgers has never but 2010 had a respectable defense that just keeps getting stops, How many times can you think back at whatever DB was caught looking in backfield, or ducking his head to only miss the tackle. Kevin King boatload of talent 6-3 just doesn't get it. I can't get 4 and 8 last play of half out of my head, Mike Pettine sure but MLF you are to blame, sorry. Like previous poster basics are terrible on this team, but have to admit when camera is on they can celebrate no screwups there. My point Brady has always had a defense he could count on, like Bradshaw, Montana, and the rest of winners not a bunch of pretenders. Jaire, Kenny Clark are studs, safeties are good, young LB's ok, Z Smith is good rest are just serviceable. Hope Joe Barry has some ideas and basics are taught till they learn them. I'll say it again KC would have dismantled GB this evening hope they crush Tampa.

Aaron Rodgers will always be the GOAT, in my book! Aaron's third MVP award is nothing to sneeze at. Everyone should know what he has meant to the GBPs.

Congratulations to Aaron Rodgers for winning his 3rd NFL MVP. I can’t think of anything else to say besides what I’ve been saying since 2010. Which is; If the rest of our players played their positions as well as Rodgers plays QB, especially on defense, we would be undefeated SB champions.

Rodgers may or may not be the GOAT but he is the most significant QB to play the position since Johnny Unitas. Like Unitas, Rodgers has redefined the QB position for the foreseeable future. He remains the best thrower on the run that I have ever seen. His accuracy is as good as anyone and like Bart Starr he very rarely hurts the team or makes a bad decision with the football. Thanks, Since ‘61

If every NFL team were as great/good/bad as their starting QB, I'd say that Rodgers wins a minimum 7 SBs in his 13 years.
Divide the other 6 as you see fit.
Perhaps, 3 Brady, 1 Peyton, 1 Brees, 1 Mahomes (thus far).

No way to prove this, of course.
This is the ultimate team sport. While the QB is - by far - the most significant position, you still need solid play in other areas.

In the NFCC, his best two offensive weapons -- Davante and AJ - were subpar, Oline was mediocre at best, and ESB pissed away 2 points.
Yes, the D got TOs in their own territory, but sucked in the first half. Coaching was subpar as well, and STs was a minus.
Still, Rodgers almost overcame all that to be playing today, as be "should" be.
Rodgers was not perfect, but was quite good; switch QBs and TB wins by 14 to 17.

Hell yes! I've been a Packer fan since '49 and Rodgers is the best. I remember the lean years with Tobin Rote and assorted other QB's. We are very fortunate to two HOF's back to back.

Congrats to Rodgers, it's a great honor. Green Bay is lucky to have had two QBs that have won the award three times.

How do you figure he dogged anyone. He let be known he's engaged. Nothing more. Quite looking for something that simply isn't there!

If anyone took offense it's most certainly an issue of theirs. Not Rodgers!

TB
Total career earnings: $263,541,804
Total earnings in early seasons while backup: $603,660
Total "starter" years earnings: $262,938,144
Total # of "starter" seasons: 19
Average salary per "starter" year: $13,838,850
# of season with top 10 Defense (points): 16

AR
Total career earnings: $240,914,529
Total earnings in early seasons while backup: $6,215,000
Total "starter" years earnings: $234,699,529
Total # of "starter" seasons: 13
Average salary per "starter" year: $18,053,810
# of seasons with top 10 Defense (points): 3

c.$4m of annual cash to spend on defense seems to pay off.

edit: To be clear, I believe AR is the more talented QB and deserves every dollar he's recieved. But it seems like that doesn't win championships when there is an (ever so) slightly less talented QB that will take a bit less in the league.

Tom Brady was not playing for less than Rodgers when he was in NE if you add up the profits his company (TB12) was making with the deals with the Patriots. It was just PATRIOT WAY of ignoring the salary cap.
