Rodgers wins ESPY again

Posted by Mike Spofford on July 12, 2012 – 10:09 am

For the second straight year, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was named Best NFL Player at the 20th annual ESPY awards on Wednesday night. Rodgers won the award last year coming off of Green Bay’s Super Bowl triumph and his Super Bowl MVP award. This year he won the NFL MVP award after breaking the single-season league record for passer rating with a 122.5 mark.

So, over the last couple of weeks, Rodgers has been named the top player in NFL Network’s “Top 100,” Ron Jaworski’s top quarterback in his QB countdown on ESPN, and now Best NFL Player at the ESPYs.

    Good to see Aaron getting out from under that monster,”the Farve shadow”. I feel for viqueens and dabears fans,ther outfits cant seem to find their rearend with both hands. Although,the lions mght be finding ther groove,and at least the bears have won a SuperBowl. GO PACKERS!! I can see a 5th SB title for this season

    Vikingsfool are you for real . Its one thing to have a favorite team but to act like a total imbasol is just silly. You truely are not compairing the packers to the vikings with 1 stat.. I dont know if you were aware of this but Aaron doesnt have toe-nails he had them removed and donated to charity.. Thats just the kind of guy he is

    First of all, the Viks won’t make the playoffs this year. They’re easily the worst team in the division.

    Also, the Pack lead the all-time series against the Viks 53-48-1. We’ve also won 4 straight against the you. The last time you beat us it was with our old QB.

    And most importantly, the super bowl records. The Packers are 4-1. The Vikings are 0-4. Not to mention the other 9 NFL Championships we have under our belt.

    Packers > Vikings PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

    Good luck this year, queenies.

    Keep holding on to that playoff stat…maybe you can rewatch games from the 2009 season while you’re at it, when the Viqueens weren’t terrible. A-rod will enjoy his toe nails, Super Bowl victory, MVP, and all the other recognition he’s getting, while burning your secondary as usual. Here’s a few stats for you to remember:

    All time record, head to head: Packers 53-48-1
    Super Bowls: Packers-4, Vikings-0

    …cheesehole that!

    Ha, good luck with Ponder, indeed. Yet, I seem to remembe a similar situation with rodgers around 2008, 2009, after he had taken over for the great one. Not saying Ponder will play to the standards of rodgers, but I’m not going to count him out quite yet.

    The good news fool is that Ponder can’t go much further down from his 70.1 QB rating. I would be surprised if he got up as high as 85.

Look at my team, we will move if we don’t get a new stadium. Maybe if we were better fans they would not even think about it. But we have this fan who looks like a street bum with a horn at every home game. He is the face of our crappy team. Now Ponder on this…We get Brett Favre because now we could afford a washed up QB and the one we booed for 14 years we had to cheer for. Yup we still sucked ass. Go PACKERS!!!

    Aaron Rodgers is so consistent. I am looking forward to the upcoming season. I want to see us utilize randall cobb more often. Every time the ball landed in his hands I held my breath, because he is one juke move away from taking it to the house. I see Randall Cobb being a great number 3 slot receiver next to jordy and greg. Rodgers has a lot of toys to pick apart defenses for years to come

    This one you may actually enjoy.

    “God asks Peyton Manning first: “What do you believe?” Peyton thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says, “I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my fans.” God can’t help but see the essential goodness of Manning, and offers him a seat to his left.

    Then God turns to Tony Romo and says, “What do you believe?” Tony says, “I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I’ve always tried to be a true sportsman, both on and off the playing fields.” God is greatly moved by Tony’s sincere eloquence, and he offers him a seat to his right.

    Finally, God turns to Brett Favre: “And you, Brett, what do you believe?” Brett replies, “I believe you’re in my seat.””

    It’s funny how most Packer/Vikings jokes, are used by each fan base, only changing team names in them. I googled most of the jokes, and saw the same joke posted on here by some of you guys, the only difference being the team name in the joke. One has to what NFL team the joke was originally made for.

  43. By Vikingsfool on Jul 13, 2012 | Reply

    All kidding aside, I agree with big cheese. Supertark was really the only great QB to ever play the majority of his career with minny. Moon, Favre, of course, are hof players who played on the team, but played elsewhere for the majority of their careers. Kramer and Cullpepper were good, but Kramer had little talent around him, and Cullpepper was short lived due to injury. So that leaves Tark as the only elite QB to ever come out of the organization. You could add Joe Kapp, he played a big part during the 40 for 60 1969 team, but was only around for a few years, and flopped when he played for the Patriots. As a matter of fact, I hope PackerBacker’s count your blessings, having Favre and Rodgers back to back. I’m curious though, as Packer fans, do you think that Rodgers would be te QB he is without watching Favre for three years??

    So the Packers went 15-1 last season, a feat that only a few teams have done. That being said, the possibility of repeating or going undefeated are slim at best. How good do you think the will do in 2012? 14-2, 13-3, 12-4, or 11-5. my guess is somewhere in the neighborhood of 3-5 losses. I’d prefer it to be worse, but realistically…what do packerbackers think?

    I’ve actually never been to a game at the dome. Used to go to many twins games, but football is way better at home on the couch. Although, the Vikings are playing outdoors for two seasons while the new stadium is being built. I’m definatly going to some november-december games at TCF bank stadium. That is the way football was meant to be played.

Becoming a dynasty in the NFL today is not an easy task, but with the team the Packers have, they will be in contention for some years to come. I’m happier than a fat tick on a lazy dog about the upcoming season. If the queens win half their games, I’m sure the Fool will be happier than a sissy in boy’s town. ..

    I agree, the Packers have learned from past mistakes and have done a good job, not falling into those pitalls. What I notice most is this, aged players are less likely to be re-signed, there are little splashy signings in free agency, and they have tried to build the team, primarily, through the draft. I think Vikings GM, Rick Speilman, is modeling the build philosophy after what has happened in GB. The Vikings made no splashy signings, is building through the draft, and commiting to becoming younger. 2012, may not be a breakout year for the franchise, but we all have our fingers crossed for the bigger picture. It seemed to work for GB, I hope it works for minny as well. The division is a much better place with the Vikings and Packers on top.

    Big Cheese, you’re right. Most of us bloggers on vikings.com are looking at an 8-8 record as sufficent for such a young team. Of course, we would love to see the Vikings as a sleeper team, but we also know that it is rather unlikely. Can’t get much worse than 3-13.

    Packhater makes a good point, but GB recieving corps are good enough to make a sub-par QB look great. Look at how good Flynn did last year, amazing numbers, yet he is fighting for a starting job with T-Jack???? Say’s a lot about the talent that surrounds Rodgers. As a Vikings fan, I hate to admit it, but the GB offense is a well oiled machine, and it makes me want to vomit.

    I think Greg Jennings put it best. He said something along the lines of, “When you talk about all the things that the more established (longer career success) elites, the Brady, Manning, Brees…you see that Rodgers can do everything that they can do. But when you look at everything that Rodgers can do, the formers can’t do all of those things.” He is just a better QB than all others at his position.

    No surprise here. Aaron was the best player in the NFL last year. We are blessed to have this type of talent at QB. I have been blessed to see in person three of the best the NFL has ever had.

Still hate these teams on gameday but also cheerish the fact that they are a part of Packer’s history.

    Congrats Aaron on everything you win. You deserve it for sure.

    This Pack fan believes that 2012 could be a 12-5 season.Rodgers,although he is an amazing talent, cannot do it all. How can one expect a great season with a porous defense, no creditable running backs, and receivers that seem to drop clutch passes.

  74. By oso negro on Jul 25, 2012 | Reply

    Of all Rodgers stats, the most impressive to me was allowing only 6 interceptions; two of these were off the hands of receivers and should have been caught. Also, since the Pack has a mediocre running game, it appears the defense, expecting a pass, has a definite advantage.
