How much longer do you think it will take for Brees to reach Montana's milestone?

An argument could be made that, barring injury, Drew Brees could accomplish as much as or more than Montana. He'll need a couple of more Super Bowls, of course. The WHO DAT nation would LOVE DAT!

consistancy

from year to year drew is easily better than manning, however the ranking the manning has is due to consistancy

he consistantly pulls out winning seasons and wins their division.....he consistantly wins games almost single handidly

brees has been better over the last few seasons, but manning's resume is just loaded



and comparing brees to montana? ridiculous...i love brees but montana is a top 3 QB of all time

No argument there for right now ... plus Montana has way fewer fumbles ... but these numbers represent Montana career versus Brees' career who is no where near finished yet. So there is time still. Can Brees catch him? And at Brees' current pace, is it not possible?

Re: Drew Brees vs Joe Montana

I think New Orleans fans are in a unique situation having seen Joe Montana play us 2-3 time a season and comparing that to 16-18 games with Brees. Brees reminds all of us of Montana.

I remember when Montana finally retired, I felt great that we wouldn't have to be playing him again, but at the same time, I was happy that we got to play one of the all time greats 2 times a year even if it meant losing. It was special watching him play. When you beat him, the Saints had accomplished something.

Just remember, to be the best, you have to beat the best.
The Saints just wasn't the best. I can accept that.

Thanks for the memories Joe. Glad you're retired.

I didn't buy the picture, but I did take a picture of the monitor it was being displayed on. A year or two later I was telling one of my buddies at work that I played for the 49ers when I was younger, and of course he didn't believe it. I really stopped him for a moment or two when I told him about the time I dressed out for a preseason game and my wife got a picture of me from the TV screen...and then I showed him the picture.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

What a legend. By far, my all time favorite quarterback. As a kid, I loved Joe Montana. Even when he beat us, I still loved him. My parents thought I was nuts, but he had this "cool" vibe that radiated off of him and I loved watching him play.
