Adam Schein: Drew Brees Isn't Elite

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The year we won the Super Bowl he was the best QB in the NFL. That following year, same thing. He's slipped to fourth, but I could argue he and Peyton are tied for 3rd regardless of the records broken ...

And he is elite. The stats back it up. Favre threw more interceptions then anybody to ever play and he was considered elite all the way until we ended his career.

Re: Adam Schein: Drew Brees Isn't Elite

What I've noticed in the last 2 years is we usually start slow, and really haven't been dominate, you can blame it on a bad 2012 D or 2013 O that struggled but alot of yards by Brees has come from playing from behind when we had to go with the passing game and I really can't recall (which I may be wrong) that come from behind wins have been about null. I believe Brees window is nearly ending, I love the guy but I refuse to wear rose colored glasses on any player we have, Payton and Brees make a good duo but if you take away our 2013 D I think we would not even made the playoffs this season. Manning and Brady have the knack to come from behind and execute better than Brees does. The 2011 season is when I feel Brees looked the best he has ever looked, the best QB. in the NFL in my opionion but not now. I truely believe he was elite then, but as of right now I don't see it. Can he return to form, maybe but what I do know is he is the best thing going for the Saints at this point in time until he isn't.

Re: Adam Schein: Drew Brees Isn't Elite

I never understood why interceptions bring down a QB's status so much. I remember Aaron Rodgers getting MVP over Drew all because Drew had more interceptions that year...nevermind that Drew smoked him in every other category. I dont care if a QB throws 3 picks a game-if he is putting up 30+ points a game and having CONSISTENT 5000 yd. seasons,he is elite in my book. Drew may not be the best,but he is definitely elite.

One of the teams I listed, the Seahawks, have a second year QB who may or may not become elite. I suspect that they would trade for him, too, if they weren't coming off a Super Bowl win. So, yes, I think he deserves to be ranked higher. Also, I think the Broncos, led by Manning, should come under the same scrutiny that Brees has come under; Peyton has post season issues and is still considered elite while Brees has "a bad" 2012 season and the writer considers him unworthy of being elite. Remember, one of the Super Bowls Manning lost was to the Saints and in the one he won, I believe he threw for 239 yards; easily just a first half for Brees. Just saying, apply the same leeway to all of the guys discussed and Brees is elite, too.

Re: Adam Schein: Drew Brees Isn't Elite

The world elite is thrown around too much these days.
Remember when we had just "good" football players?

In another 5-10 years we'll have Super Elite....

Farve is a gunslinger... I liked that!
Drew is just alot more accurate but has the same nature to make things happen.

Re: Adam Schein: Drew Brees Isn't Elite

i really feel it a waste of time to talk about a statement like this. Drew is Hall bound so why even say something like this
