Before I get started on this week’s roundup, I want to take a second to recognize this week’s Blind Squirrel Award recipient:
Enjoy the Super Bowl and have a safe evening, all. 28-24, Patriots… That’s my prediction.

Okay, now that we got that out there for the world to see, let’s take a look at the topics currently surrounding our greatest enemies.
GREEN BAY PACKERS
As if the Vikings needed another reason to continue their defensive growth under Mike Zimmer, Aaron Rodgers is again the NFL’s reigning MVP and is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, the guy only seems to get better.
Rodgers ended the season with a 65.6% completion percentage that produced 4,381 yards and 38 touchdowns. He threw only five interceptions over the course of the 2014 season. He got 31 of the the 50 possible MVP votes and J.J. Watt came in second with 13.
I personally think Watt should have been the MVP this season, but that has more to do with my opinion of Watt than it does Rodgers. It is impossible, even for the most devoted Viking fan, to deny that Rodgers is playing at anything other than a truly elite level.
