Aaron Rodgers And Desmond Bishop Are Super Bowl Champions; Rodgers Super Bowl MVP

via Mocksession; Aaron Rodgers can wear the championship belt for real now.

Aaron Rodgers completed 24 of 39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns, plus no interceptions to lead the Green Bay Packers to victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, winning MVP honors in the process. Again, it was Rodgers's ability to throw the ball on crucial third down plays (as he as his entire football career), throwing a 24 yard pass to Donald Driver on 3rd and 9 early on, a 29 yard touchdown throw to Jordy Nelson on 3rd and 1 to give Green Bay a 7-0 lead, and three crucial conversions in the 4th quarter (to James Jones, Nelson, and Greg Jennings) to help the Packers score their final 10 points.

Desmond Bishop did his job as well. Playing at the second level of defense while Clay Matthews did the play-making, Bishop finished with seven tackles, preventing Rashard Mendenhall and the Steelers tailbacks and receivers to get large gains and open up the run attack. He also made a crucial fourth quarter fumble recovery when Matthews stripped Mendenhall with Pittsburgh threatening, setting up the final Green Bay touchdown drive.

Two of the Cal greats are now world champions. Wear the championship belts well. GO BEARS!
