I wouldnt say like any other QB in the league. Aaron Rodgers uses about 7 different receivers a game, every game.

Terry Bradshaw was a truely great QB it's called chemistry and getting average ballplayers to compete at all-pro levels, the same knack Brees hAS WITH THE TEAMS HE HAS BEEN A PART OF. It's ashame, but read what Vince Limbardi say's about being no one, it has to do with winning championships and that will never change.
Just because a player is a late draft pick or an undrafted player DOES NOT mean that they were scrubs and it also doesn't mean that Brees made them stars either.Personally I really like what he does and he is a good guy and even before this year I thought the Chargers were idiots for letting him go.I think by the time his career is over he will leave his mark as a great all time QB but personally I don't think he'll be a top 5 guy.That being said Marino never had 1000 yard rushers and the 1 time he did it was a scrub running for about 3 yards a carry. Brees had Bush who is considered a decent back,so yes he did have a respected running game which opens it up for the passing game.

No I didn't say Brees uses 7 or 8 different recievers a game, I said ,many times uses that many recievers in a series or a drive.

Brees is good & time will tell. I doubt it though. There are many very good quarterbacks in the nfl past & present such as bradshaw, elway, montana, aikman, big ben, etc...

My point, don't throw Big Ben in the mix, it's got a lot to do with what you do on the field, but to be the best let's not embarass the team and fans off the field with bonehead offseason antics, what a loser.

It's too late in Brees' career for that.

Yea I know, but it's just unbeliveable the way he went to the big show and then won it with all the so called experts doubting him and the Saints all year long.

He caught lightning in a bottle....the whole team did. Let's not start talking dynasty. Can the Saints sustain this level of play consistently for the next 5 years?
