Re: PFF: Is Drew Brees still a top-10 quarterback?

I don't get it. The article goes into much detail about why he still is top 10.

Drew Brees is still one of NFL’s top 10 QBs: This throw Drew Brees delivers shows why he is still one of the best QBs in the league...
see article

While the referee initially calls this incomplete and it’s overturned for a touchdown, the pass couldn’t be placed any better. Ben Watson makes an equally impressive catch but what makes this throw even more special is that Brees has to hold on to the pass until the absolute last second with a defender hitting him immediately after releasing the ball.

This isn’t an isolated fluke and shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that pays a little attention to the New Orleans signal caller. In fact, Brees has been one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the league since he arrived in New Orleans in 2006 – never grading outside the top five in passing. When including rushing grades, he’s never been outside the top seven.

Brees is arguably the most accurate QB in the league ranking second in deep passing adjusted completion percentage and seventh at all depths of the field. .... He is a top quarterback and should get paid like one.

I get it. They're boneheads for asking the question in the first place when they already knew the answer.

One of those "The sky is above our heads" article that insinuates one thing while saying another.

Yes.

32 TDs in 8 consecutive seasons. Never been done, 4800 yards in an off year.

Yes.

Re: PFF: Is Drew Brees still a top-10 quarterback?

So the question seems to be is the man who led the league in passing yards in 15 games.Finished 2nd in completion percentage. Top 7 in TDs and top 6vin QB rating in 15 games still a top ten QB?

Personally i find all this a big disrespectful. Nobody questions the cheat over in New England yet most years Bress is at minimum on par with his stats. Bess doesn't have the same supporting cast and is a far more aggressive QB but its always he's on the slide.

Sean Payton has friends at PFF and is getting Drew pumped for the season?
