Aaron Rodgers has reached the pinnacle in professional football. A season after leading the Green Bay Packers to the Super Bowl XLV Championship in Dallas, earning the game's most valuable player award, the 28 year old is now the National Football League's Most Valuable Player. At the Honors Show Saturday night at the Murat Theatre in downtown Indianapolis, Rodgers graciously accepted the highest individual honor after leading the Packers to the league's best regular season record in record setting fashion. The vote was a runaway with 48 of the 50 Associated Press representatives cast ballots for Rodgers with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees picking up the remaining two. Rodgers broke the single season passer rating record of 4 time MVP Peyton Manning, who presented the trophy to him on stage. He finished with a rating of 122.5, setting another record of posting a rating above 100 in each of his first 11 starts, all Packer victories. Rodgers finished with 45 touchdown passes against 6 interceptions, completing 68.3 percent of his passes for a career high 4,643 yards. The yards and touchdowns were both Packer records, established in just 15 games as he sat out the regular season finale. Rodgers joins Paul Hornung (1961), Jim Taylor (1962), Bart Start (1966) and Brett Favre (1995, 1996, 1997) as AP Green Bay Packer MVP's.
