Brees is an absolute beast. And much like Rodney Dangerfield, he gets no respect.

re: Brees: Most Prolific Passer of Our Time





New Orleans, LA. The entire NFL, and the men who run this sports juggernaut, have to be very happy about which players are responsible for the continued success of the league. The guys who are currently the most popular ones in this sport are guys who couldn’t be any classier than they already are. Whether it’s somebody like Aaron Rodgers, who has done everything right, even during a tough situation taking over for Brett Favre. Or maybe someone like Peyton Manning, who always knows what to say in any given situation, and is never in any kind of off-field trouble. Or Tom Brady, who exudes class and has a genuine respect for the game where he may currently be its biggest star. But the classiest guy in the entire league may be the QB down in New Orleans who continues to shatter records, those of which that have sometimes literally stood for decades. Drew Brees is not only one of the best quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen, he may very well be the most respected player this league currently has to offer. The National Football League is very lucky to have a guy now holding some of the games biggest individual records, who anyone, from child to adult, can admire.

Drew Brees just gets it. He gets that he is just part of the beast that is the NFL. He gets that he would not encounter his individual success if it weren’t for everyone else on his offense and his team doing their jobs as well. He also gets that he is only enhancing his own legacy as he continues to be humble, even when he is smashing QB records who were held by guys like Dan Marino and Johnny Unitas. The things that Brees has done on the field during the past twelve months or so has been eye-popping. His mastery of his position and his smarts for the game of football is apparent even if you just watch him play for a very short period of time. In 2011, he destroyed the record for passing yards in a season, which had been in tact for 27 years. Now in 2012, he has broken the record for having at least one TD pass in 48 consecutive games and counting, which was a record that hadn’t been touched in 52 years. Brees is simply revolutionizing the passing game in the NFL, during an era where it seems every team is throwing the ball far more than running it. As great as Brady, Rodgers, and Manning are, and have been, Drew Brees is the guy breaking some of the most hallowed QB records of all-time. And the best part is….he is doing it with an unprecedented amount of class, and a respect for the game and the players who laid the foundation before him.

If you ever hear Drew Brees in any sort of interview, he comes off as a regular guy. There is not an ounce of narcissism, or any sort of attitude that he is better than anyone else. He has always maintained a level of pure class and respect for the game that he plays. When things come up like records he has broken or may break in the future, without fail, he quickly mentions something about not being in the position he is in without the efforts of his team, or not being able to play this game today if it were not for the countless players who have played it before him. In an age where the sports world is littered with athletes who have an entitled attitude, and think their sport and their team cannot live without them, it is remarkably refreshing to hear guys like Drew Brees speak. He is never part of any sort of drama off the field, and always knows the right things to do and say. He seems to be a great teammate as well, as he has stood up for several of his teammates during this bounty scandal over the last several months. He is not afraid to speak his mind either, even if is not in accordance with what the almighty commissioner of the NFL thinks. The Saints have been through the wringer this year, as 2012 has been one of the most difficult years any team has ever had to deal with. But during all of the drama and events that have filled the headlines off the field, there has been one guy who has really been the backbone for this organization through it all…..Drew Brees…..if the Saints are able to bounce back in future seasons and be a contender again, or even win another Super Bowl, the signal caller wearing #9 will be the main reason why.

I'll take 1-4 with Brees over 4-1 with Kolb or Cutler anyday. In a sport where winning without a superior QB is very difficult we have not just a HOFer but an alltime great.

He did let me down today tho... LINK & LINK

Unfortunately for the Saints - winning Super Bowl's isn't just about 1 player. Do I think Drew Brees is better than Matt Ryan? Yep. But:
Matt Ryan: 5-0
Drew Brees: 1-4

I'll take the Falcons over the Saints this year.

ETA: My above rant was in regards to the dumbass question on the picture that says "Still think your QB is better?"
