Yeah. It doesn't feel fair to make comparisons between the two. Maybe we can sort it out when they get to Canton

Re: Why Drew Brees is better than Tom Brady

In a team game, individual comparisons are severely flawed.

They're both HOF QBs.

I would say the scale might tilt to Brady a bit. Stats don't matter much, winning counts and Brady knows how to win, particularly in the playoffs.
Brady has always been clutch, even in college.

Brees has played with it in 2012, 2014 and 2015. No wonder Brady wins in the playoffs, he doesn't have to score every single drive.
Very valid point, I don't like Drew's INT numbers, but agree with the "have to score on every drive" sentiment.

I think it suffices to say they're both pretty good, .

I love Brees, but he'll never be considered better than Brady until he wins 3 more superbowls

I didn't read the article yet but a blind man can see if we had a defense we would have 3-4 Championships to date.

Re: Why Drew Brees is better than Tom Brady

All I can say is, there isn't a QB I would have rather had these past 10 years then Drew Brees. Not even Brady, Manning, or Rodgers. Brees has been a blessing to the team and city. I come down hard on him often, but it's only because he's been so infallible that you come to always expect nothing but perfection from him. So in a discussion of who's better, it could go either way. The masses will say Brady because of the rings, but winning a ring isn't an individual accomplishment.

Re: Why Drew Brees is better than Tom Brady

Brady cheats. Drew leads by example and is without a doubt the better man. I also believe that he is the better player.

He inspired the nation back in '09. Leading the Saints back from Katrina and then winning the Super Bowl was a tremendous story. The press and the public ate it up. The NFL...........not so much. How dare a small market team upset the beloved Peyton Manning led Colts? Shortly after that concussion issues allowed Roger Godhell to get even and set the franchise back three to four years with a made up Bounty program.

Anyway, if I were in their shoes I would rather wake up to Brittney rather than Gisselle. However, I do believe that I would rather go to bed with Giselle...........

Both first ballot Hall OF Famers. Drew is the best ever. But I'm a homer.

Re: Why Drew Brees is better than Tom Brady

hard to say really. rings defenses ignored there is no three QBs in the NFL i would rather have on my club. Rodgers has to be in the conversation. These three QBs set themselves apart from the others in one simple area.

No matter who they have on the field to throw to, they are successful.

Measure of greatness at QB is the ability to make players look much better than they are. There is a long list of WRs that left both teams and were exposed for what they are on other teams. Usually turn into 3 and 4 WR in a rotation. The NFL has caught on to this fact and that is why so many of the FA WR are had for fairly cheap and very few are hot commodities.

With that said I lean towards Drew because over the years he has less talent during his career at WR than Brady or Rodgers.
