Rodgers didn’t take the Packers to the Super Bowl, but overall can’t be too upset with being named the top player in the league for 2011 and getting his very own day. Not too bad for a guy who wasn’t even considered elite until he led the Packers to a Super Bowl win just over a year ago (where he was also named MVP).
The amazing aspect of Rodgers’ 2011 season was how his numbers stack up with those of Brady and Brees despite playing one less game. In the game Rodgers sat out (because the Packers had a No. 1 seed locked up), Flynn had his coming out party, including a franchise best six touchdowns and 480 passing yards. It’s impossible to say Rodgers would have had the same numbers, but I’m betting they wouldn’t have been far off.
