Aaron Rodgers (2021)
2021 began in controversial circumstances for Rodgers after a Week One loss. The Packers looked horrible and many people immediately wrote him off. Meanwhile, there were a lot of distractions during the offseason. It emerged that he lied about his vaccination status.
However, it’s impossible to write off a player of Rodgers’ quality. He won his fourth MVP award and his second in consecutive years. This was an outstanding achievement and a testament to his consistency. It’s also one of the few things he’s done that Tom Brady hasn’t (via Clutchpoints).
