Who Is the Biggest Superstar in the NFL
 
Not a bad article considering it is from Bleacher Report

The NFL's biggest superstar is—and pretty much always has been—a quarterback. That much we know. Beyond that, though, things become nuanced, subjective and complicated. There are more star quarterbacks playing now than ever before, creating a deep group of American sports idols.

That group currently includes Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. (35), Peyton Williams Manning (37), Andrew Christopher Brees (34), Aaron Charles Rodgers (29), Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger Sr. (31), Elisha Nelson Manning (32), Matthew Thomas Ryan (27), Cameron Jerrell Newton (24) and new club members Joseph Vincent Flacco (28), Andrew Austen Luck (23), Robert Lee Griffin III (23), Colin Rand Kaepernick (25) and Russell Carrington Wilson (24).

Who's the club president? The debate regarding which star shines brightest comes down to the three most senior members of said club—Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos, Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, and Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints.

The Manning-Brady debate has raged for over a decade now, with Brees emerging in the last five or six years to become a sleeper (if there is such a thing in the world of superstardom).

What's fascinating is that, aside from being really good quarterbacks, all three are so different from one another. Manning and Brady are easily the most famous football players of their generation, but they're polar opposites off the field. And then there's Brees, who is almost a hybrid of the two, both possessing and lacking traits that both Brady and Manning have brought to the table.

Let's break down the recipe that has turned all three into superstars and establish why, from this perspective, Tom Brady might have an edge over everyone else.

Probably Brady.

When Drew wins more Super Bowls a good argument canbe made - but not until then

Really? Who does this? Did they really think we wouldn't know who they were or something?

No Adrian Nicholas Peterson (28) or Calvin Johnson, Jr. (27)?

Retarded.

A.P was pretty damn. Good
Peyton Manning
Aaron Rogers would be the one I would Pick to build a team. He runs better than most of the elite QBs
The Young' guns coming up are going to change the game.

Isn't Timothy Richard Tebow (25) the biggest superstar?

The only thing about this thread that is interesting is reading all of the full names of players.
