Hence, the reason he get's picked off constantly and beat the hell up. He would love to be taller as well...and right-handed.

Exactly

lol, Ive never been convinced height has anything to do with QB ability. Brees has out performed Manning sense 2007- Now. Not sure many know but Brees also wears contact lenses.

6ft 5 might make you see a little better, but it also means your arms are longer, so your throw is slower. Most important to me is mental quickness, accuracy , work ethic, then arm strength.

lol, I think the only thing vick loves is himself.

Brees is the scrambler in the league. That's why he never has to run.

There was once talk that Brees was a bust. What changed?

Brees took the bull by the horns, so to speak, and worked his azz off to get better. He continues to have an amazing work ethic and is reaping the rewards.

Vick hasn't taken the bull by the horns. Vick has allowed circumstances to limit him, something Brees refused to allow. Intelligence and ability aside, that's the biggest difference between the two in my humble opinion.
