On February 6th 2021, Aaron Rodgers was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player for the third time in his career. As the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers led his team to yet another NFC North Championship, the number one seed in the NFC, and to the NFC championship game this year. After many doubted Rodgers abilities, and believed that he had passed his prime as a player, Rodgers dominated this season and secured an undisputed MVP award. He stated in an interview on the Pat McAfee Show that “down years for me are career years for most quarterbacks”. This quote sums up Rodgers talent as even his less successful seasons accomplish more than most quarterbacks hope to accomplish throughout their career. With this third MVP title, Aaron Rodgers ties Tom Brady who also has three MVP titles throughout his career. According to the Greenbay Packers website, Aaron Rodgers joins Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and Brett Favre on an elite list of NFL players who have earned at least three MVP awards.
