On the eve of the Los Angeles Super Bowl, the regular season awards were handed out. Second consecutive MVP, fourth overall, for the 38-year-old Packers quarterback whose future is yet to be written. He’s out of retirement, but he could leave Wisconsin after 17 years.
Aaron Rodgers, it’s still him. The 38-year-old Californian quarterback wins the NFL MVP of the season, and he does it for the second time in a row, the fourth in total. Only Peyton Manning has been able to do better than him in the history of the game, even being named the best player five times. Rodgers beat the legendary quarterback head-to-head with Tom Brady, 39-10, while the preference went to Cooper Kupp, the Rams wide receiver.
Elections, teasing and the future.
As the countdown continues to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles, with less than 48 hours to go until kickoff, the 2021 Oscars have been assigned, which, it should be noted, pertain to performance during the regular season. . excluding the playoffs. Rodgers ties this MVP to those from 2011, 2014 and 2020. “They were all unique, but the last one is always the sweetest.” He threw for 37 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions, this time dragging Green Bay to the best record in the league, 13-3 with him as the starter, 13-4 overall, including the game in which he was out due to Covid. The joke then came to the playoffs: surprise elimination at home to San Francisco, thanks to the snow at Lambeau Field, the polar temperature that complicated the launches, and the unspeakable problems of the Packers Special Team. For Rodgers, as for his illustrious predecessor as Green Bay’s monumental quarterback, Brett Favre, Super Bowl success remains unique: just one appearance, winning, in 2011, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the big game. . It is true that Drew Brees has succeeded only once, and Dan Marino has never even, and we are talking about other phenomena in the history of the role, and that is that American football is a team game in which you can not do everything alone, but for Rodgers. One of the top 10 quarterbacks of each era, the playoffs have often been truly spellbound, certainly regardless of their demerits. That’s why he doesn’t give up and goes up. No retirement, unlike Brady and Roethlisberger. But where will he play next season? It is not yet known. He could leave Wisconsin after a career, 17 years, playing professionally in a Packers jersey. Any hypothesis is good, to date. The only sure thing is that he still hasn’t made up his mind.

Kupp excelled in tricks (145), yards (1,947) and touchdowns (16) unequivocally proving the best receiver in the league. Pittsburgh linebacker TJ Watt was named Defender of the Year.

Ja’Marr Chase, the wonder receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, was named Offensive Rookie of the Year, while on the defensive level, the rookie of choice was Micah Parsons, the Dallas Cowboys linebacker.
