Aaron Rodgers

In 2011, Aaron Rodgers couldn't lose, literally. The Green Bay Packers won four playoff games earlier in the year, including a 31-25 Super Bowl win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and are a perfect 13-0 this season. Rodgers won the Super Bowl MVP, and his 2011 regular season statistics are almost silly: he has completed 70% of his passes, and thrown for 4,125 yards and 39 touchdowns, against just six interceptions. You may as well gift-wrap the 2011 NFL MVP award for him now. Rodgers, who many Green Bay fans feared would never live up to the legendary Brett Favre, whom he backed up for three years, is now chasing history: can the Packers become just the first team in NFL history to finish a season 19-0?
