Thumbs up New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees “Best in NFL”?

Does the best QB in the National Football League play for the New Orleans Saints? Drew Brees is the engine by which the Saints go. Since coming to the Saints in 2006, he has never thrown less than 4,388 yards per season. Add to this his lowest TD year (2006) of 26 touchdowns, and you can see why Brees is an NFL top gun.

This past year tested Brees, and his character came shining through. The Saints posted a 7-9 record, down dramatically from the 13-3 they posted in 2011. Head coach Sean Payton had to sit out the season with “Bounty Gate,” yet Brees still threw for 5,177 yards and 43 TD. Brees remained true to the team and loyal to his head coach. With his leadership, the Saints remarkably made it through this difficult season.

To further the “Best in NFL” discussion, let’s do a comparison to another star that has played one more year than Brees, Tom Brady.

Brady has thrown for 44,806 yards, 334 TD with only 123 INT. Brees has played one less year and has 45,919 yards, 324 TD, and 165 INT. Of course, Brady has won more super bowls and has less INT, but the numbers are astonishingly close. Ask yourself, would Brady be as good without Bill Belichick?

I think it’s Brees off-the-field activities that make the case. He is all class — he exemplifies what is good, decent, and right in the NFL. But more than that, he is a great role model for all fans to follow.

His charity work has blessed many. The Brees Dream Foundation has been a tremendous charity, and he has done major charity work with Hurricane Sandy Relief and proven his character and leadership to the entire country.

Because of his on-the-field and off-the-field presence, I think Brees deserves the title “Best in NFL.”

Re: New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees “Best in NFL”?

Now, there's no arguing both these guys are 'elite'.

Brady is one of those guys I've never warmed up to personally, but you have to respect him, he's a winner from his college days at University of Michigan. His claim to fame is his SuperBowl rings, but his rep is being tarnished by the fact he can't seem to win the big one anymore. Would he be as good without Belichick? I think so.

Brees is the total package, on & off the field, and that's where I think he wins the title. Doesn't have multiple SuperBowls, but he has one. Throws for 5k every season, leads his team & the NFL Players Association, family man, charitable guy, personable, a PR department's dream ... if you're any kind of a football fan, at one point or another you've wished you were Drew Brees. . Plus, he's a "man's-man" ... when he's out with Brittany, I see plenty pics of him holding her hand, but never carrying her shopping bags like Giselle has Brady do.

Damn straight he's the best in the NFL.

Hilarious, Slo-Mo.

btw, MudBugs IV will most likely be on June 1st at my awesome swamphouse in Old River, TX, halfway between Houston & Beaumont-- I heard you were interested in visiting the South.

Drew has all those slam dunk stats, which im not really a stats guy, except for
TDs vs. INTs, and I believe his are off the charts. He wins, He can win, and my favorite thing for a QB to be able to do: He can come from behind. We used to be the team that always got "Joe Montana'd." Now we have our own
magician.

Re: New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees “Best in NFL”?

I'll admit Bradu is elite but I just wonder what kind of productivity he could have with the worst D in history cutting into his TOP...Drew was the Saints last year and even with the worst D, tons of drops, and fumbles we fall barely short of .500. I just don't see Brady being able to do that. Hands down 'Best in the NFL' and '1st ballot HOF'.

So are you saying Giselle is the better leader?

Carrying shopping bags is not the definition of a man.

Wishing you had one more finger so you could bring in all the groceries in one trip is a man. You know you do it.. 10 fingers, at least 10 grocery bags.. bumping the door frame and all.

Good debate but you'll never have a true answer. Even if Drew ever matches him in Super Bowl wins it's a team sport.

This is the same thing as a power ranking isn't it?
