    Re: Drew Brees

    It sure ought to. He's been a huge part of rebuilding two franchises, and he's a Super Bowl champion, not because of a dominant defense, but because he was good enough to win the game.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Drew Brees

    It should. By the way, did anyone see during the trophy presentation the guy holding the sign that said, "Canonize Brees"? Hilarious.

    Re: Drew Brees

    lol at the idiot chargers, having to sit there and watch two QBs that they could have had, play in the SB.

    Should have drafted manning. Should have kept Brees.

    Re: Drew Brees

    IMO it puts him up there with Brady but I still think Manning is the better overall QB and in a more elite class than Brees.

    I don't put Brady in my top 8 and I don't put Brees in my top 15 of all time

    Chargers didn't pass on Manning. He was the #1 pick to the colts. And they didn't pass on Eli as he just refused to sign with them.

    As for Brees vs Rivers. Don't think the Chargers did the wrong thing there. Rivers is fantastic and a winner. Just didn't get the breaks this year.

    Exactly. This thread is dumb. Brees has been considered one of 3-4 best QBs for a few years, the other QB being Rivers. Chargers didn't pass on Manning and Brees was only an average QB when they drafted Rivers. The Chargers are in the playoffs every year with Rivers, and I don't believe they made it once with Brees.

    Re: Drew Brees

    My bad, I though SD had the #1 pick.

    Rivers is not better than Brees. And they did make the playoffs with Brees IIRC. I think they went like 14-2 with him and lost in the first round. Then they dropped brees and fired shottenhiemer.

    I think Brees and Manning are the no doubt two best QBs in the game right now. I think Manning is the clear #1, and Brees not too far behind.

    They made the playoffs with Brees. You are correct there. I have a hard time saying that Brees is any better than Rivers though. He has a super bowl now but otherwise Rivers has been the better winner in his career. 46 wins in 4 years is pretty impressive

    Re: Drew Brees

    I'd put Brees in the same category as players like Kurt Warner, Troy Aikman, etc. Great player but won't go down in history with guys like Elway, Manning, Brady, etc.
