Starter Pack: Rodgers in the MVP Watch

By Rob Demovsky

A roundup of what’s happening on the Green Bay Packers beat.

Each week, ESPN.com’s Dan Graziano puts together a top-10 list of MVP candidates in what is aptly named the “MVP Watch.”

It’s a good barometer of how players’ stocks rise and fall with the flow of the season, in good games and in bad. In the end, one, two or maybe three candidates will end up separating themselves from the rest and the choice for the award will be relatively clear.

Will Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers be near the top of that list come December?

On Rodgers, Graziano wrote:

“The Watch still believes Rodgers is the best quarterback in the league, and that the Packers will end up a strong contender to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl before this is all said and done. The Watch also believes we’ll all someday live together in peace and harmony in a world in which human decency trumps petty self-interest. The Watch only recently found out about the Easter Bunny, but that doesn't matter. Rodgers on an MVP list is cash money, right? And at least he can’t lose in Week 4.”

See where Graziano has Rodgers ranked in this week’s Watch.
