    Favre was also the best player in the leauge at one time as well. Don’t forget what he did for the Packers. Brett will probably go down for me as being the most entertaining and fun player to ever watch. This current team has plenty to be excited about but I think it’s time to move past bashing Brett and give the man his props.

    In looking at the list I am dumbfounded to see that Jordy Nelson was not even in the top 100.. He is better than half of the receivers on the list

    It’s great to see so many Packers get the recognition they deserve, especially Aaron Rodgers! So often, the media focuses on Brees and Brady while Aaron just puts his head down and gets the job done!

    I’m so proud of the Packers–I’m getting over what Favre did so that’s all good. Congratulations to Aaron. The Packers will always be the premier team–ALWAYS….

    Here’s a recipe to make the best player in the NFL.

    Take one small boy
    Raise him with good values
    Season with equal amounts of praise and criticism
    Knead gently but thoroughly
    Let stand to properly raise
    Sprinkle with a large amount of adversity
    Allow humility to properly express
    Cook slowly for the first three years
    Raise the temperature as high as possible for the next 4 years
    Remove, let cool and serve in generous portions.

    Aaron deserved this number 1 spot. He is very humble, hard working, team player. Just an all around good sportsman. Congrat’s to him and the rest of the team that place. I love the recipe for how to make the best player in the NFL Describes Aaron perfectly. I am proud of all our Packers.

    32 teams in the NFL.

    Top 100 players.

    Averages just over 3 players per team.

    The Packers get 6 ranked in those top 100.

    Rather awesome, in my opinion.

    Boo yah!

    This guy makes it look effortless. As a guy who was scorned more than most about the Favre debacle…I think that it’s time to bury that hatchet. We should be seeing autographed pictures for sale of, arguably, 3 of the Top 10 or 20 greatest of all time – Starr/Favre/Rodgers….talk about being spolied!!!

    JB, Look again, Jordy Nelson was ranked 80.

    Keep things real here; A-Rod is the best there is for the 2011 season. One post said that he had nothing to do with it?? Really??? Would he have been rated number 1 for sitting on the bench??? I think not. As for the Favre bashing – he really has earned a lot of disdain from a lot of fans for his conduct at the end his career as a Packer, and for his handling of his personal and professional affairs in New York and Minnesota. I do not blame any fans for still having strong feelings for or again Favre. We Packer fans are extremely loyal to our team not just the individual. The team has to supercede the individual and as such individuals need to accept their praise and punishment. – That is keeping it real!!!

    Cossondra, I bet everyone wants Rodgers to stay here his entire career. As far as keeping him happy, that hopefully will be done within limits. If he decides that he wants to be the de facto GM, or is caught up in a 20 variable decision vortex, to a point where even he has no idea what would make him happy, the organization shouldn’t let itself be dictated to or caught up in such a vortex of pathological indecision. I have a sudden urge to hear The Who’s Won’t Get Fooled Again…

    15-1 in the regular season with no defense and no running game. Pretty hard to argue with that choice.

    It had to be him, he played lights out last season. Well deserved award no doubt about it.
    And that being said….Go Pack Go!!!

  58. By Joe in Orlando on Jun 28, 2012 | Reply

    Nice list and I was pleased to see Aaron #1. I was even more proud to listen to his audio upon receiving the award. What a class act. Even when Michael Irvin tried to bring out a little pride by stating “now that you have done the PC thing”… Aaron didn’t bite.

    I was surprised to see Brees above Brady. While I love Brees as my daughter is a Purdue Alum, he and the Saints totally padded his stats last year, which lowered my opinion of he and his coach.

    Go Pack!

    Quite the honor Im sure. Deserved!! Although since Jordy wasn’t in 100 I feel he will have outstanding year. Before the competition figures it out how to cover him, he will have had a good size stack of TD’s. Good diversion tactic Aaron. Packer fans are completely ready for season to start.

  76. By R. Karcz on Jul 6, 2012 | Reply

    #4 was great. #12 is 3X better! Aaron is superior at decision making and protecting the football from turnovers. The biggest reason that Brett excelled at 4th quarter comebacks was that he put his team in a comeback situation from his INT’s thrown. With a good team like the Packers, you can avoid a fourth quarter comeback situation if you manage the ball wisely for the first three quarters, like Rodgers does.

  77. By Vikingsfool on Jul 6, 2012 | Reply

    Favre>Rodgers, end of story. You Packer fans wouldn’t know a great QB if he bit you in the rear. Instead of embracing #4 you guys crap all over him. I hope he goes to the HOf wearing a vikings hat. SKOL!

  78. By The Delivery Guy on Jul 9, 2012 | Reply

    Favre was a banjo themed musiced semi-controlled hurricane of football moxie, Rodgers is a football surgeon. Both have been awesome to watch… there is what a third generation in a row of Packers fan that have no idea what its like not having a HOF caliber QB under center for more than 1 game. (And that guy has the GB single game highest TD passes mark)….

  79. By Jeff on Jul 9, 2012 | Reply

    Favre was great, but I agree with majority and say Rodgers is the more complete player. More agile, better at reading the coverage, safer with the ball, has a more potent offense. Favre is no doubt a man that belongs in the hall of fame, but for the next 5-10 years, barring injury, Packers can dominate for years to come, especially if their defense improves, since you can only go up from 32nd, and their offensive line improves.
