Brett Favre – 1995
Favre’s career shares a lot of similarities with his Packers replacement Aaron Rodgers. The pair only won a single Super Bowl each with their franchise but had a handful of MVP awards. Favre was a three-time winner but his best season came in 1995. This was a year that the Cheeseheads will never forget.
Some people think that Emmitt Smith should have won the award over Favre but the quarterback had a great year. He was also the first player to win three consecutive MVP awards and statistically, this was the best. Favre passed for over 4,400 yards with 41 touchdowns as he entered gunslinger mode (via Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel).
