Re: Pierre-Paul: Drew Brees is “much easier” matchup than RG3

If Drew plays like he has the last couple weeks, he might be the easiest QB to face in the entire league. 5 picks makes a strong case for that. But considering the Redskins just scored 17 points against the Giants (How is that impressive?), and the Saints have scored an average of eleventy billion points against them in the last couple meetings, I think this is one of the dumbest statements I've heard by any player. Is Griffin a better athlete? Duh. But the fact is that they haven't been able to touch Drew and he has ripped them apart. Can't say that about Griffin.

The only thing to worry about is which Brees shows up.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

While Rodgers "can" run, he is not a running QB like RGIII, Vick, Tebow.....
Good point, I had to think way back to Scramblin' Fran Tarkenton of the Minnesota Vikings to come up with a running QB that was considered one of the top 3 or 4 QBs in the league at his time.

I rarely watch College football, Saturdays are busy with family and things i cant do during the week, so I can watch the Saints on Sunday.

Probably why I don't care for running QBs, that's more college than NFL. To me a running/scrambling QB is an accident looking for a place to happen. A QB running in the NFL means a breakdown on the o-line, or receivers can't get open, or he can't throw a pass worth attempting.

Nobody is respecting the Saints because the Saints have not earned any respect this year.

Hell looking back at the last two weeks, Id rather go against Drew then just about anyone in the league, with the exception of mark Sanchez.
