Is Drew Brees Is The NFL’s Best Quarterback?

When it comes to naming the best quarterback in the league, most fans, sportswriters, talk-show hosts, etc., mention three names; Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, and Tom Brady.

Brady certainly his his share of supporters. The New England Patriots signal-caller has thrown for just under 40,000 in his NFL career (39,979), including a career-high 5,235 yards in 2011, and his guided his team to three Super Bowl victories.

Aaron Rodgers, who was behind center when the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl XLV last year, set a new NFL record for passer-rating this year, at a 122.5, after throwing 45 touchdown passes, while being intercepted only six times.

But Brees may top them both.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback had a fantastic 2011 season, setting an NFL single-season record for passing yards in a season, with 5,476 yards, while also leading the league in completion percentage (71.2), completions (468), and touchdowns (46).

Brees has a Super Bowl ring himself, after guiding the Saints to a win following the 2009 season, has thrown for a staggering 19,553 yards over the last four seasons.

In terns of who’s the best, I personally have two answers.

If I’m answering the question as to who has had the best career to date, then my answer would be Brady.

If I’m answering who had the best season, my answer would be Brees.
