Green Bay Packers attack player Aaron Rogers was named the NFL’s most valuable player Thursday night at the NFL honors presentation in Los Angeles, becoming the fifth player in league history to win the award in consecutive seasons.
Rodgers led the Packers to their third straight NFC North title after going 13-4 in the regular season. He totaled 4,115 passing yards for 40 touchdowns, four interceptions and a 69.2 quarterback rating.
The veteran signal-caller overcame difficulties both on and off the field to get to this point. He hinted at retiring or joining another team after openly criticizing the Packers’ front office and expressing his disappointment in the draft picks. His personal health also became a point of contention after it was revealed in November that he had not been vaccinated following an outbreak of COVID-19.
In January, one of the MVP voters openly criticized Rodgers saying that he would not endorse Rodgers for his behavior off the field.
“I think he’s a bad guy,” said Hub Arkush, editor and general manager of Chicago Football magazine. “I don’t think you can be the biggest idiot in the league and punish your team and your organization and your fan base like he did and be the most valuable player.”
Rodgers responded by calling Arkush an “absolute bum,” adding that his problem with him was his vaccination status.
After his season came to a surprising end with a divisional-round exit, Rodgers said he would take some time before deciding what to do with his future. The Packers organization, however, has made it clear: They want him back.
