Aaron Rodgers & others are nominated for ESPYs

Aaron Rodgers & Clay Matthews are both in the running for Best NFL Player (against Arian Foster, Troy Polamalu & Tom Brady). Rodgers is also nominated for Best Male Athlete (against Dirk Nowitzki, Rafael Nadal & Jimmie Johnson [when did driving become athletic?]). The fact that he is the only NFL player nominated for Best Male Athlete bodes well for him winning Best NFL Player.

Mikw McMoron is also nominated for Best Coach/Manager. His competition is Jim Calhoun (UConn basketball), Rick Carlisle (Dallas Mavericks), Gene Chizik (Auburn football), & Dom Starsia (Virginia lacrosse).

The Packers as a whole are in the running for Best Team, along with Auburn (football), the Boston Bruins, the Dallas Mavericks, the San Francisco Giants, and Texas A&M (women's basketball).

This is voted on by fans to determine the winners, so get to:
