As a Packers fan, I cannot express how happy I am for Aaron Rodgers. Many players had incredible seasons, but I believe Rodgers went above and beyond to show his true worth, culminating with him receiving a standing ovation after Colts quarterback Peyton Manning announced him as the prestigious recipient. Manning is the league’s only four-time MVP.

Rodgers was honored to receive the award and recognized that other players contributed to his success this season. After expressing his gratitude, he acknowledged Manning.

“We’re all really excited to see you back on the field next year,” Rodgers told Manning, whose status with the Colts has been a big question during the organizational changes made in recent weeks.

Rodgers led the Packers with 45 touchdown passes, six interceptions and a 68.3 completion percentage to go 15-1 and win the NFC North. He finished with a league record high 122.5 passer rating. He joins former Packers Brett Favre, Bart Starr, Jim Taylor,. and Paul Hornung as league MVPs.

Congratulations, Mr. Rodgers. We are so proud of you.
