You are a football fan. You already know that the Packers outlasted Pittsburgh to win the Super Bowl yesterday in Dallas.
Aaron Rodgers was great. He overcame a number of drops by his receivers, an injury to Donald Driver and the complete and utter lack of a running game. Rodgers winning the MVP was as sure a thing as there was yesterday.
Other players of note: Jordy Nelson had a career-changing game. He did drop a few passes, still. James Starks was a virtual non-factor. The Packers did not even try to run the ball, though. Mike Wallace finally came out of his playoff shell. Rashard Mendenhall was having a good game until the costly fumble. It was the biggest turning point of the game.
So now that the Super Bowl is over, football fans are left in limbo. Will the players and owners agree to a new collective bargaining agreement by March 4? Will there be free agency?
Even more important, will there be football in 2011???
