A Case for Drew Brees as the Best of Our Generation

Marques Colston was the 252nd pick. Devery Henderson was the 50th pick. Lance Moore was undrafted. Pierre Thomas was undrafted.

Robert Meachem and Reggie Bush are the first rounders. Even Drew Brees was taken with the first pick of the second round.

How is Brees not the best QB in the NFL right now? With Brady and Manning getting "best of all time" talk, Brees has done the same with unheralded talent.

Sometimes putting forward a contrary opinion just to be contrary doesn't work.

Brees has had a few great seasons, and he's definitely a very good quarterback. But he hasn't done anything to compare to Brady's 3 Super Bowls or Manning's decade of dominance. Just because his (very good) receivers were drafted low doesn't mean he's a better quarterback.

In fact, I think most people would take the Saints' receiving corps over the Colts', regardless of where they were drafted.

I'd be happy with any of them on my team.
