I hate ties. OK, maybe tie-goes-to-the-runner is all right and tied shoelaces are a must, but I hate all other ties, from the ones you knot around your neck to the ones that occasionally pop up in sports, dangling there like perpetually uncompleted thoughts.

After the Packers they have been my second favorite team for years. That will probably get me a little flak from the other Packers fans here but that's ok.
I,m almost good with your post. You keep making references to last year. The 2012 MVP is for THIS year. A-ROD's only record is QBR at 122. something, Brees has a record for breaking records. Think about it.

I agree with what your saying. I might add that Brees had a much better running game than the Packers while Green Bay had a little better receiving corp. Brees or Rodgers, Rodgers or Brees plus the season Brady put together. Plus head-to-head Packers beat Saints in game one. All this being said, I like the way your team is playing and if, and this is a big if, the Packers and Saints meet in the playoffs it would be one helluva a shoot out. One of those games that could come down to whom ever had the ball last. Good luck in the playoffs unless it's against the Packers!

Forgot one thing. I have always thought the San Diego Chargers were stupid as hell for giving up on Drew Brees for Phillip Rivers, who I think is overrated. Brees is one tough player and has my respect. Just though I'd throw that in.

I don't wish for anything. The Steelers won Super Bowl XL because everyone was healthy. I doubt the Steelers will go far because they have injuries. There's always next year but as we know, the season is not over and the Steelers are playing young Tebow and his Time.

The Steelers have nothing to do with the MVP award so why even bringing that up. Oh that's right, you failed again to insult anyone here. This is about Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. Stay on topic. It's hard to do that since you know that Drew Brees is getting the MVP award and has the team with a better defense than the Packers.
Make up your mind. You said Rodgers has the better team and that is why Brees deserves to be the MVP. I was agreeing with you. If Brees has the better team, I guess you are making a good argument for Rodgers to win the MVP. He certainly deserves it if 15-1 is primarily because of him. Pick a position and stick with it.

BTW I know the Steelers have nothing to do with the MVP award. As I said, we can all agree on that.

That's one of the reasons I also believe the Steelers won't go far. Are you going to get butt-hurt that I'm agreeing with you again?

I did not say that Aaron Rodgers was on a better team. I stated that his accomplishments were based on a team effort rather than an individual one. An individual effort is a lot more difficult than a team one, if you didn't know.

The MVP is great and everything but the main focus is to obtain that Super Bowl prized possession..

If the Flynn can go in there and set arecord then the team is helping the Packers going 15-1. Brees's individual achievement seems to be the hardest thing to do.
Makes sense...Flynn beats the Lions week 17 and its a team effort helping him...

Brees beats the Lions week 13 and its an individual efort...

let me see.....does anyone think that the Saints backup could have Brees numbers? but Green Bays can throw for more yards than Rogers or Favre? Sure Green Bay has a better team record but did Rogers break Marino's 27 year standing record? How many records did Brees break this year? How many did Rogers? C'mon people....back in the day when people voted for what people accomplished Brees would be an easy choice. When the Vikings were 15-1 did their QB get MVP? Think about it people...its not rocket science.

I believe that the Steelers can go to the big game but it will be very difficult to do that since they have various amounts of injuries. You should stay on topic next time. Then maybe you would understand what everyone is talking about. Drew Brees will be the MVP.

By effort we are talking about his passing record. In the NFL, players are expected to have talent. Drew Brees has is one of the most talented football players in the league. Common sense should tell you that he's not passing to himself. You do not see quarterbacks breaking passing records everyday but you see teams with great records.

And as I said, if 15-1 is mostly due to Rodgers because he is on a worse team, you make a great argument for Rodgers being the MVP! Your OPINION about individual performance versus team accomplishment is not shared by many voters. It's clear that voters for MVP think that the MVP is the player that is most valuable to his team. Clearly that would be the person that is carrying an inferior team to the NFL's best record. If there was an award called MPY (Most Passing Yardage) Drew Brees would clearly be this years winner, but there isn't. Your ignorance about the MVP award doesn't surprise me. You've proven time and time again you know nothing about the NFL.

Like last season when the GREEN BAY PACKERS crushed the Steelers in the Super Bowl. There is seperate MVP award for that game. Apparently, you forgot that Aaron Rodgers won that MVP award. The MVP for the regular season is an entirely different award. Aaron Rodgers is winning so many awards it is understandably confusing for someone like you.

That is a very interesting OPINION. If that is true, why was there 2 players that exceeded the passing yardage record, but only one team with 15 wins? Also, what about the individual records that Aaron Rodgers won? Don't those count for anything? What about Rodger's individual effort? Does individual effort only mean something if a player's last name is Brees? How do you determine how much team success is due to individual effort? I know how the MVP voters do that. It doesn't really matter how you do it.

If the award was MRB (Most Records Broken) I think everybody could agree that Cam Newton would be the winner. Brees did break Marino's yardage mark, but so did Brady. The number of passing yards this season rendered that accomplishment less impressive than it would be otherwise. Back in the day it was just as now. Team success has always been a factor in the MVP award, but not the sole criteria. That is why Randall Cunningham didn't win MVP in 1998. If you actually lived back then and paid any attention to the NFL or MVP voting in any sport you might understand how it works. It's not rocket science.

I believe the the Steelers cannot go to the big game, because they aren't anywhere near being the best team even when healthy.

BTW if you don't want to discuss the Steelers, I understand. They are pretty bad this season.

You certainly can predict that Brees will be MVP. However, you have proven over and over that you know nothing about the NFL. So it's safe to assume that Aaron Rodgers will be named MVP.

There were many QBs that set passing records this season. Apparently you are unaware that it is rather rare for an NFL team to win 15 games in a season. Your ignorance no longer surprises me. I'm sure it doesn't surprise any of the football fans that post here.

Tom Brady won 16 games, what's the surprise?

You wish they crushed the Steelers. Your choice of words are used in the incorrect context.

You must know nothing either since I have said things about the Packers and the Saints. Those are both two NFL teams. It looks you know nothing about the NFL.
