Hello everybody and welcome back to the Mid-American page. Unless you live under a rock, you probably have heard that future hall of fame quarterback, Drew Brees, became the all-time NFL passing leader. Upon this milestone, this led to a discussion and a rather interesting hot-take by one of my friends. He stated that Brees was the better than Tom Brady in every way. While I laid there in complete disbelief somebody can say that, I couldn’t think of a rebuttal.
If you’re one of those people who argue that championships truly matter in an arguement of skill, Brady is the best no matter against who. However, Brees did take an unlikely New Orleans Saints team to a Super Bowel and upset the then power house, Indianapolis Colts.
Brees is the greatest role model for all under sized quarterbacks. What Brees lacks in stature, he makes up with one of the gamers highest football I.Qs, arm strength, and accuracy. Brees is an unlikely to be here in this position, but here he is.
I think the craziest thing about this record is that he did this with not one great wideout. Sure he had Jimmy Graham, Jeremy Shockey, and now has promising wideout, Michael Thomas, but that’s it. Brees best receiver up until now was Marquis Colston….. Yes, Marquis Colston….
Brees is well on pace to now break the all time touchdown record as well. When he passes that, will this even be a discussion. I, honestly, am having a hard time arguing a better quarterback than Drew Brees.
Yes, this is a hot take, but what do you think? Let us know down in the comments! Thank you for spending a part of your Tuesday with me and the rest of the Mid-American crew. As always, stay tuned for more fresh daily content.
