Brees moving up the charts



Monday night our beloved quarterback will most likely pass two legends in two categories.

Drew is currently only 63 yards behind Fran Tarkenton for 6th all time, and 7 completions behind Elway for 4th all time.

Yards

Completions

Before the season is over Brees could move up to 5th in yards as well and be very close to 4th.

Doesn't matter. Peyton will pass Marino and the gods will shine down upon him and Brees will play second fiddle as nothing more than an after thought.

Yeah, getting pretty sick of the Peyton Manning love fest every year. He's one of the best, i get it...but to completely ignore Brees in conversations and MVP voting when he has a super bowl win (against the anointed one), the multiple NFL records records, is just pathetic. The superbowl season is a perfect example of it...Peyton wins season MVP, loses the superbowl to the guy that passes for over 5000 yards and gets superbowl MVP. Just doesn't seem like Drew would get any respect even if he broke every record in existence.

As long as Brees keeps winning, he will find his rightful place in the history of NFL football.

Football fans are like women with their need for outside reinforcement and praise sometimes.

It doesn't matter P manning is Moses and Drew is just the lil bitch in the football gods eyes. Watched the book of manning last night, it was a great piece but it's funny that Archie left out two of the most important games in their golden tenure , the lsu games that they lost

Wasn't trying to start a media Manning bitch fest but rather appreciate what we have. Who gives a frick whose nuts the mainstream media wants to swallow. We have something here that is great and I am appreciating every moment of it. So please leave the Manning crap out of here.

Brees is ranked 3 times in the top 5 for single-season passing yards... 1st, 3rd, and 5th

you can add 2nd after this year!

Unfortunately Brees has to best Manning in every meaningful stat including W's and playoff numbers before he will win a MVP. If its even close to a decision, it goes to Manning every time.


going undefeated would certainly help!

Yep. Peyton Manning is a great quarterback, but when you take into context the way they slobber over him in the sports media, he's overrated. Let's not forget, his playoff record is right around .500, but if you listen to the way ESPN, NFL Network, etc., talk about Manning, you'd swear he walked on water, has never thrown an interception, or even misread a defense in his life. The story of the Super Bowl wasn't Manning's film study, but Tracy Porter's and the rest of the Saints' defense's film study. Porter recognized their favorite play, sat on the route, and broke on it when Manning thew it, resulting in one of the most memorable plays in Saints history.

I don't know if anyone else caught it, but in Payton's speech on the podium after the Super Bowl, he referred to Brees as the League MVP... I caught it when he said it and thought it was awesome.

When Brees was in the running with Manning, the excuses they used as why Manning was more deserving were the exact same reasons they used why Brees shouldn't get it over Rogers a year or two later. It's a definite media bias, and one that seems to give Brees a huge chip on his shoulder as it should.

They call it northeast bias for a reason. If Brees played for the Giants, I don't think he'd be playing second fiddle quite as much, but it's simply not the case.

He got lambasted for breaking Unitas' record last year, like it was something dispicable. How much criticism do you think Brady gets for beating Brees out? It'll just be another notch on his GOAT resume. And I don't begrudge Brady that, it's just the way things are.

Would luv to see the Saints and Denver in the Super Bowl. With Brees beating that Manning arse 1 more time. What would the ESPN asses say then. Peyton best ever but lost 2 Super Bowls to Drew Fricking Brees

Brees may own the career passing completions record by the time he retires. It's more realistic than the passing yards

You Saintards are so butthurt. Manning after 4 neck surgeries and missing a year of football is still outperforming Brees

Brees should've won MVP in 2009, you really can't make an argument against it.


and Manning outperformed Brees last year, mainly because of the bounty shite. This year, yes Manning is outperforming everyone, and by a large margin. We are only 3 games in though. Manning is the favorite to win MVP, and rightfully so, but I've seen Brees get extremely hot before (2nd half of the 2011 season was an all-time hot streak). There's a chance he does similar again.

Yeah Brees has been healthy his whole career. He really can't compare the struggle you go through after a near career ending injury.

I mean QB's use their head and necks alot. Then only thing worse would be like of he had a devastating injury on his shoulder. That would be rough.

Who gives a frick, the fans recognize Drew's greatness and that is all that matters
