This was the stage that every child grew up dreaming of, and for Aaron Rodgers the dream was realized.
You could have made an argument for any number of people to win this award. I might have made a case for Greg Jennings. Yes, he only finished with a little under 70 yards, but he had some very big catches and had two of the three touchdown catches for the Packers.
But that is not the case. Rodgers is the MVP of Super Bowl 45 and it is a very well deserved honor. He finished with a little over 300 yards and three touchdown passes. The big stat for him was a zero in the turnover column. He may have made one or two reading or accuracy mistakes, but overall he was fantastic all night long. A great performance from a quarterback making his first start on the biggest stage of them all.
Congratulations to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, as they take the Lombardi Trophy back home.
