Aaron Rodgers QB of the Green Bay Packers wins the Superbowl MVP award as the Packers beat the Steelers 31-25. The key to the game were the 3 Steelers turnovers that left them trailing the entire game. Its’ tough to beat anyone when you turn the ball over that often much less the newly crowned NFL Champs.
The first half the Steelers trailed 21-3 before scoring a late half TD to cut it to 21-10. For most of the 2nd half the Steelers controlled the game but in the critical 4th quarter the tired Steelers Defense could not hold off the Packers as they drove the ball down to score a field goal while running the clock down forcing the Steelers to try and score a TD with 2 minutes left in the game. The Green Bay Defense held and the rest was as they say history.
This has to be a huge disappointment for Steelers fans with all those turnovers. But for Aaron Rodgers it must be complete confirmation that he was the right choice after all the Brett Farve mess late in Farve’s career. Frankly it would hard to find a more selfish player then Farve. It seems fitting that a selfless player like Rodgers would replace him and lead them to a Superbowl Championship.
Congrats to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
