    Did Rodger lose the NFL MVP or did Brees win it?  They both have had outstanding years but with the way the leauge is being called these type of records were going to come and probably be broken again soon.
    A backup named Matt Flynn came in for Green Bay and threw record yards and touchdowns (480 and 6) for the Packers.  So an arguement could be made that the system run is producing all the results and not the individual performer. 
    But Brees has been in the Payton system since he came over from San Diego and no other Quaterback has replaced him to see if it is Brees running that offensive system or the performer?

    Rodgers, Brees and Brady have had outstanding individual years when it comes to stats but it really be contributed to the way the leauge is being called defensively or more to the fact that the skill players are on the offensive side and defensive backs are just not as athletic as they used to be.  We have tight end who now are former athletic basketball players seem to be unstoppable by smaller backs or bigger linebackers.
    Wide Receivers like Calivn Johnson, Andre Johnson, AJ Green, D. Bowe, and V. Jackson are too big, athletic, and fast for defensive backs. 
    Until the shift in athletic personnel changes we will probably see more passing records broken yearly.

    Which goes back to who is MVP?  The one who broke a lot of records this year in Brees or Rodgers who broke lead the team to the best record and broke some records in the process as well. Do you view MVP as individual accomplishment more than team accomplishments for the year???

    Did You lose your mind, or Did Brees win it?
    Brees showed everyone how to play QB this year and earned it soundly.

    No I did not lose my mind.....but can argue against Brees some how.

    I dont think just because Brees set the yardage record, completion percentage, ancd completions means he should be MVP. 
    This year was truley the year of the QB.  If Stafford can throw for 5000+ yards for a team that up-til-now was annnually a losing team why should we be set of giving Brees the MVP when just about anyone can accomplish record passing feats. 
    We even seen a Rookie QB in Newton throw for unbelievable records for a sub par team with no real training camp and off season workouts. 
    The records this yeare are overflated with the sub par skill set on the defensive players and the way the leauge is calling passing plays.

    So I go back to who helped their team help be successful all around performance, and Rodgers helped his team to the best record in the NFL along with beating Brees this year in the process.

      Records = MVP in modern sport. I believe you have have an honest argument, but lately this is how the voting tends to sway.

    it should go to brees bt a slim margin. I think he means slightly more to the saints then Rodgers to the pack. The arguement is close eother way I just want to see brees win it.

    It's a tough call. Rodgers has the insanely high touchdown to interception ratio. Brees has the yardage record. Rodgers' case probably would have been helped if the Packers had been shut out by the Lions on Sunday. Instead, his backup comes in and has a historic game. It sure makes it look like anyone can do it with the various weapons the Packers showcase on offense. That certainly hurts Rodgers case for the Most Valuable Player.
