Brees < Brady

Really curious. I understand that he has all of the Super Bowl rings but is that all there is to it? His numbers don't really add up to Brees. For that matter neither does Manning s numbers. It has to be their height. I would put Brees ahead but not in the "gap" that the NFL puts him. Meh, I don't know. I would even put Rodgers ahead of him.

"It's beyond ridiculous," Cleveland Browns coach Pettine told MMQB.com's Greg Bedard. "Top five? I mean, to me, it's one and two (Brady and Peyton Manning) and then there's a gap and then it's probably (Drew) Brees and (Aaron) Rodgers would be three and four, however you want to order them. Until those two (Brady and Manning) retire, they'll be one and two and then there will be a gap."

Brady got lucky with that leaders on defense and won superbowls early. People talk about Manning and his playoff struggles but after that early success same could be said about Brady.

Brady and Manning are 0-2 in their last 2 Super Bowl appearances.

Brees is 1-0

Re: Brees < Brady

What makes yet another coach of the Browns such an expert? Shouldn't he be working on his resume for his next job?

Re: Brees < Brady

I don't listen to this type of BS. IMO, go ask the coaches of the NFC South who's the most dangerous. They'll have a different or slightly different order with no "gap".

Temper Tantrums:

Manning - Too many to count
Brady- Too many to count
Brees- 0

Re: Brees < Brady

I'd say Brady's definitely had the better career, and if I made a "greatest QBs ever" list, I'd have Brady ahead of Brees. With that being said though, I don't think he's better than Brees currently. If you watched Brady last year, his arm didn't look as strong and accurate as in years past. Especially towards the end of the year. I think he's probably still a top 5 QB in the league, but he's slowly losing it IMO.

Re: Brees < Brady

Career? Yes Brady, Manning then Brees

2014? I must say its a toss up. All 3 could carry their teams to the title, and you can add Rodgers to that as well.

I have no problem with his ranking, but the drop-off from Brady/Manning to Brees/Rogers is non-existent. They are all 4 basically on the same level going into 2014.

Re: Brees < Brady

IMO they are neck-and-neck. If you're looking at career accomplishment you have to go with Brady. If I had to pick one right now to go with, I'd go Brees, just because he is a better athlete.

Why isn't skid britches on anyone's list?

I thought he was supposed to be the second coming of Montana?!

Oh, wait John Clayton probably still has his back:
