Agreed ... I've been a Saints fan my whole life, but let's be objective here and not subjective ... Brees isn't the best, but he'll get there --- Just sit back and watch.

This is how I look at it. If you are talking career, then I would have to agree with the top three (that hurt me just saying that) but if you look at it ever since Brees has joined the Saints, well there is a clear winner for me. If you are just talking Quarterback, not team wins, then for me it has to be Drew Brees. He has done more than any other Quarterback, so there!

I cannot really argue with the top 5 on the list. No issues with putting Brees at 3. Seriously, he is not going to top Manning when it comes to career numbers. Could possibly get by Brady, especially with another Super Bowl win and Brady continues to decline. (Yes, I agree Brady is not playing as well as he did a couple years ago).

This list is not that bad really. The top 3 anyway.
I really agree - Drew needs another ring. He should have been the League MVP last year but I am sure he his happy with his Super Bowl MVP award.

As far as who is the best atm, its Brees, Brady and Manning are best career-wise, but Brees is closing the gap, fast.

I agree on the Brady part. He isn't the "dynamic force" that he was three years ago. He's just been mediocre. Granted, he came off knee surgery a year ago, but he hasn't been the same since. So I agree with that.
