PFF are the best in the business when it comes to these type of things. Cosiderin they are ranking all positions in the same list I'd say 79 is pretty good considering last year. What you have to remember is that PFF actually watch everything and try to make their rankings mor than a mere popularity contest. I'd be the first to say there were more than one time last season I would have liked to see Brees on the Bench and Daniels in there at the end of games so yeah, 79 sounds good.

Yeah, and that was my point about not caring about the ranking, because although I agree with you on the fact that the PFF ratings are probably the most accurate out there - they include every player at every position on that list.

So, saying that Brees was the 79th best player doesn't really say a lot, especially considering the challenges the team and franchise had to face last season. And, honestly, Brees wasn't the best QB out there last season.

Quoting this because it's the only relevant statement in this whole thread.

Had Brees played for the Jet, Giants, Dallas or the Pats he would be crowned the BEST QB of all time.
I don't put alot of faith into any list because sometimes people just don't want to acknowledge anything great about New Orleans

Even if they had Drew at number one it would make no difference to the amount of games won last year.if somebody told me Drew could throw for 3000 yards and 20 TDs this year and we would get the number 1 seed in the playoffs or he could throw for 5600 yards and 50TDs and we would have the number 2 seed then im going with the first option.
Team first.



This did make me laugh
70. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers
+1 and right on. Just watch the damn game!

Do they mean top 101 players in NFL History? Or top 101 current players?

Because if this list is for current players, they're smoking dope.
Brees is either #1 or #2.

Top 101 Player rankings are ghey anyway.

No. It was the top 101 in 2012. Brees' ranking was about right, but it was affected by Spag's **** defense.

The months and days leading up to the season's first game always seem to be long. There's no way that this off-season can seem as long as last year.

The horror!

Do you honestly think Chase would ever provide a better chance of winning than Brees? is this a serious comment?

Also whether they deserve it or not, I think its funny that Detroit has 2 DT's ranked higher than Brees
