I have simply run out of adjectives for Jordy Nelson.

What else can you really say about this guy?

After a 3-reception 25-yard performance against the Saints he looked like a man on a mission.

Nelson hauled in all six balls when he was targeted.

The Nelson-Rodgers combo has become a special thing to watch. They were able to catch the Bears (should I really use hibernating again?) in a coverage mix-up and scorch them for a 73-yard touchdown. Nelson went untouched as he flashed his stutter change of field move and propelled himself into the end zone.

Nelson would add another touchdown reception of 40 yards. He ended the game with 6 receptions, 152 yards and 2 touchdowns.

With 56 receptions for 889 yards and 8 touchdowns, I still believe Nelson should be in consideration for the MVP.

The award is usually generated for the quarterbacks and running backs of the league, but if you roll the film you will see him 20-plus yards down field blocking when the ball is not in his hands.

He is one of the most underrated players outside of Packers News the NFL has ever seen.
