Why Packers QB Aaron Rodgers should be NFL MVP.

For the second straight season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the frontrunner in the MVP race.

Considering everything Rodgers has accomplished this season, there are three reasons why he deserves to be a four-time MVP.

The stats

Rodgers has put up amazing stats that no other player in the NFL can even compare to. With one more regular season game to go, Rodgers has put up 3,977 yards, 35 touchdowns, only four interceptions.

No other quarterback is playing on his level right now. Though Tom Brady is a close second in the MVP race, he has 12 interceptions this season which clearly makes Rodgers’ 2021 performance look much better.

Rodgers makes the job look effortless which easily makes him a favorite to win the MVP award once again.

On a whole other level

Rodgers is playing on a whole other level than everyone else. Rodgers’ ability to read a defense is a major part of what makes him an excellent playmaker as he adjusts the plays to catch defenders off guard.

Once Rodgers figures out opponents’ weaknesses, he does not hesitate to exploit them. With a great understanding of the game, Rodgers has conquered some of the NFL’s greatest defenders.

Being a clutch player also separates Rodgers from the rest especially with one or two minutes left in the game. Many games have been won as a result of Rodgers leading a successful last-effort drive. Other teams should know better by now that if they’re playing Rodgers, it’s not a smart idea to get comfortable with a one-score lead with one or two minutes left in the game as Rodgers has made them pay.


A very important quality that an MVP must have is leadership. Rodgers is one of the best leaders in the NFL today. Green Bay’s receivers have had the amazing opportunity to learn from Rodgers which has resulted in elevating their game as well as earning the trust of the legendary quarterback. By demonstrating great leadership throughout the years, Rodgers has made stars out of his teammates.

If Rodgers doesn’t win the MVP award again, it would be a huge disgrace as no other player has been on his level this season. We are very fortunate to witness a once-in-a-lifetime athlete accomplish greatness in Green Bay, and hopefully Rodgers will continue to make history by leading the Packers to another Super Bowl.
