All this week, Fansided NFL has been announcing our awards for the 2011 season. We’ve finally gotten to biggest award of all, the MVP award. This year, it goes to Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rogers. For the official announcement, and the story as to why he was chosen , check out NFL Spin Zone.
The voting was fairly close. Roger just beat out Saints QB Drew Brees for the honors. Brees took home the Offensive Player of the Year award in a similarly close vote.
The most interesting player to get votes this year was Peyton Manning, who proved his value by not playing a single snap. Without Manning, the Colts dropped all the way to 2-14.
The only Seahawk to receive a vote did so on my ballot. Marshawn Lynch was given my 5th place vote for his contribution to the Seahawks. Lynch’s stats were good, but not great, thought I don’t think there was a single player more valuable to the Seahawks in 2011 than Lynch.
The rest of my ballot looked like this:
BEST OF MAXIM
