To the guy talking about breeS not being good on the road,go check that out a little further,up untill last year he had the 2nd best road record in the NFL and the best from 09-12. He is also a GREAT playoff QB,having the best TD-INT ratio in NFL history,better than Montana and all of them. He is a way better postseason QB than manning plain and simple. He also has four 5000 yard seaaons to mannings one

Oh and Brees is also second among active QBs in completion percentage in games 40* or lower,and also has over twice as many picks as ints in said games. So he is still a lot better than 99% of QBs in cold games. Quit listening to ESPN and do some research

To the guy asking to compare brees to Brady,sure
TDs brees 396 Brady 392 ratio brees 5.4 Brady 5.4
INt ratio brees 2.3 Brady 2.1
Completion % brees 66.2(2nd best all time) Brady 63.5
Yards brees 56033 Brady 53268(brees also a good bit higher per game)

Also throw in the fact brees has the best TD/INT ratio in the post season of all time
Also all this talk about Brady not having help,who the heck has brees has before graham(and Brady has gronk so I don't wanna hear that),you say Julian Edelman sucks,why because he never proved it before being with Brady? Well what did Colstom prove before brees? He was a 7th round pick for a reason,also look at Robert meachem,did so bad in SD they sent him back to the saints,look at Moore-can't even hardly see the field in Pittsburg and that's 2 of top 4 WRs brees has ever had. He would have LOVED to have a Wes welker for that long or even a moss for just one season.

Who cares about team success,we are talking indivual,there is no way you can make a logical argument for Brady being better than brees,even? Maybe. Better? No way possible to justify that.

In a typical 16 game season, 8 games are at the Superdome, one is at the GA Dome, one is in Tampa, and one in Charlotte. That's 10 games in warm and fairly sterile conditions.

As we saw this year, when faced with less than ideal conditions, Brees doesn't do quite so well, and his record on the road in both regular season games and playoff games has been pretty bad.

Brees has had some success, has lots of regular season records, and has a ring, but is he in the same category as Elway, Montana, Brady, or even Peyton Manning? I don't think so.
Brees has the same number of rings as Peyton, not nearly the MVP awards, but look at Peytons playoff record, if memory serves me right, he has a sub .500 record in the playoffs (9-10 i think)

Brady won 3 rings with WR's that werent close to #1 wide outs....Miami couldnt get rid of Wes Welker fast enough....be fair, Brady made Welker alot more than Welker made Brady....Brady is an alltime great
