Why Brees should be MVP

Other than the records that are falling left and right. Here are the some stats that are not being discussed:

SAINTS PACKERS

Rushing TDs 15 12

Passing TDs 41 45

Two Pts. 2 0

One Pt. 57 62

FGs 27 23

Tot Offensive Pts 478 473

Defensive Pts 18 30

Special Teams 6 12

I have said all year that the Packer defense has helped Aaron Rodgers much more than the Saints defense have helped Drew. The average starting field position for Green Bay is 31.02 and 28.19 for the Saints. The Saints are 41.03 yards per drive, while the Pack is averaging only 39.13. The Saints are punting only 27.8% of the time, while the Pack are punting at a rate of 35.9%. These facts I think show that the Saints are much more efficient than the Pack. I say all this helps support the claim that Drew deserves the MVP.

The real reason Rodgers is going to win the MVP has nothing to do with seasons or stats, but has to do with the storied tradition of Packer football and Vince Lombardi et al and the storied tradition of Saints football, the bags et al. The truth is if Drew Brees played for a team with a winning tradition, he would have already won the MVP, twice.
