Rodgers value was to drag an average team (at least considering injuries, of which they were riddled with them) to 11-4 and a first-round bye.
The QB is more valuable. Vikings and Packers D is a wash. Packers running game is as bad as the Vikings passing game. To me Rodgers is the more valuable player and that will show in week 17 when the Packers go into Minnesota and win.
Peyton should be comeback player of the year and consideration for offensive player of the year. He was off for a year due to neck injury, clearly the comeback guy. His D is too good for him to win MVP (true, sounds crazy, right?) and he did not lead the team to wins early in the year against the marquee opponents. Offensive player of the year I would give to Peterson. But Rodgers should get MVP
Wow, that is a bold argument but you backed it up with many solid points. The truth is you can bounce the MVP across any of the elite four and you can make an argument. It's going to Peyton, but we're looking at playoff matchups now.
