New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was recognized by his peers around the league as the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year in a poll conducted by The Sporting News.

Brees received 299 first-place votes from the 583 players that were polled for TSN's annual awards. He also was named to the magazine's All-Pro offense, joining guard Jahri Evans. The Sporting News' defensive awards will be announced tomorrow.


Here's what The Sporting News wrote about Brees' selection:


"In winning this award for the second straight year, Brees didn't come close to matching his 5,069 passing yards from 2008, but he did throw just as many touchdowns and and six fewer interceptions. Oh, and he led the league in passer rating and set an NFL record for completion percentage."

They vote along "Party Lines". Few of them are Saints fans. They would rather spend hours talking about Oakland or Tamps bay.

Hey, I'll take it! Drew had an outstanding year. Great PR for the team and Drew. Couldn't go to a more deserving player.
