As much as preseason odds and predictions don’t matter in the least bit, they’re fun to talk about. Like this one: Aaron Rodgers has been installed as the favorite to win the 2015 NFL MVP.

That’s certainly fair.
Rodgers is coming off an MVP season and returns the exact same supporting cast in 2015. That supporting cast will only be stronger with another year of experience under their belt. And blah, blah, blah.
It would almost be disappointing if the best regular season player in the game today DIDN’T win his third MVP.
And you know what that would mean.
Rodgers would have just as many MVPs as one Lord Brett Favre.
He would also have just as many Super Bowl wins, although that better change too, with Rodgers taking a 2-1 lead in that category.
So then you could make a realistic case for Rodgers being better than Favre. Providing he has an equal number of MVPs and more Super Bowl wins. Because Rodgers will never touch the records, of course.
Hell, you could make a case for him if he only won the Super Bowl. We’d give him the nod over Favre.
This is about winning titles, after all.
That’s why Bart is still No. 1.
Bart is not no.1. He was a terrific quarterback and game manager, but he was surrounded by more superb talent than any quarterback could ever dream of. Half of his job was handing off to Jim Taylor and then watching him batter his way behind the greatest offensive line in NFL history.
I don’t like comparing QB’s or other NFL players from yesteryear to todays modern game. Some players back then had two jobs to pay their bills. Some players smoked cigs on the sideline. I could go on and on and on. Just hard for me to compare the two. So i don’t.
I don’t know how you can say Favre is still number 1. Rodgers overtook him back in 2011, as probably the greatest PLAYER to had ever played for the packers, and if things break right in the next few years, probably the best to had ever played in the NFL.
“So then you could make a realistic case for Rodgers being better than Favre.”
A realistic case? Do you even watch what Rodgers does on the field? Can you read stats? Can you decipher a td/int ratio?
Realistic case for Rodgers being better than Favre?…Thank you, hardest i laughed all day.
Adrian Peterson and Manning in the top 5, wow my 05 Galant with faded paint and the wheels falling off must be one of the top 5 cars in America right now too
I defer to E. “Da Hater” Wolf….
Anxiously awaiting the commentary
