Super Bowl 2011 MVP: Aaron Rodgers Realizes Dream In Championship Performance

Aaron Rodgers was the clear and obvious Super Bowl MVP after leading the Green Bay Packers to the team's first Super Bowl win since 1997. Rodgers garnered 17.5 votes out of a possible 20 for the award, with Jordy Nelson receiving two and Clay Matthews receiving 0.5.

It was the cherry on top and the realization of a dream for Rodgers, who was unflappable in his first Super Bowl.

"It's a dream come true," Rodgers said after the game. "It's what I dreamt about as a little kid watching Joe Montana and Steve Young, and we just won the Super Bowl."

Rodgers was nearly-perfect throughout the game, overcoming drops by his receivers and an offense that looked to be stuck at neutral at times. Yet every time it looked like the Steelers were ready to break through, Rodgers was there to stem the tide.

Celebrating like he has all season, Rodgers strapped the belt on one more time on-stage at Cowboys Stadium, but this time he could truly say it was the championship belt while holding the Lombardi Trophy.
