Is 2012 The Year That Drew Brees Finally Wins MVP?

Six years ago, Drew Brees landed in New Orleans in Themistocles a natural disaster and a team that was virtually rebuilding. Since then, the leader of the Saints has compiled huge numbers and broken multiple records along with Pro Bowl trips and even a Super Bowl title.

The one thing that has still eluded him though, is the title of league MVP.

First thing’s first––Brees will never state that being MVP of the NFL is one of his goals. See, it’s not a team award and that is not what he is after, because there are loftier heights and bigger expectations he puts on himself.

Not if the line and the receivers don't do their job and he continues to have games like last week. I seriously doubt it anyway.

If we average 8 drops a game and he still throws for 339 yards per game (5,424 yards per season), they should give him the MVP for 2013 as well.

You don't throw for as many yds as Drew does and break records without throwing a few more interceptions than other QBs. When the line holds up most of Drews interceptions can be blamed on batted balls and off the hands of receivers.

Re: Is 2012 The Year That Drew Brees Finally Wins MVP?

I honestly don't think Brees is ever going to get the props he deserves from the "outside world" until after he has hung up the cleats. I don't even think about what they think of him anymore. I genuinely don't care.

Here's the thing I decided about it. Rodgers, Brady, Manning,those "elite" cats -- really if you look at it, all of these guys were celebrated and hyped at the very START of their careers -- first year or two they were starting QB, they were getting the big headlines. So that way, people in the media feel like they can take CREDIT for picking Peyton or Rodgers or Eli or Brady, to be superstars, "I always knew this kid was gonna be something special." But Brees has this thing where the media wrote him off in San Diego, sorta washed their hands of him, and he surprised everybody by coming back stronger -- he sorta wasn't supposed to do all this. That wasn't the storyline that was supposed to happen with him, the media never saw it coming with him OR with Sean Payton. So my theory is that they will never come around on Brees, until Hall Of Fame time or after his career is over.

How exactly does 14 INT translate to "MR INT"?



You do realize he played against WAYYYYYYYY better defenses than Rodgers did? Texans, 9ers.

If rodgers went up against the texans he'd probably throw 3 or more INT. We already saw him get spanked by the giants AND 9ers AT home.

Not to mention that unlike rodgers, brees BLEW OUT the super bowl champions, whereas Rodgers just barely beat them by a field goal.
