Brees is better and I dont just say that because I live in Louisiana. Brees is more adaptable and can read defenses better. Brady is very tall and has a big arm and big name guys like Moss and Welker, whereas Brees has to make do with late rounders and journeymen offensive players, not to mention he is barely 6 feet tall. He doesnt have the best view of the field, so he has to play smarter football to be as accurate as he is. Because of his disadvantages in terms of overall team talent and smaller stature, I have to give him the nod in this comparison. He just does more with less. If you gave Brees Moss and Welker, can you imagine the records he would break? If T.O. was here, he would be lighting up defenses like nothing youve ever seen.

This is the worst argument that I have heard because it show how little you know about Tom Brady.

1. Brady has ok arm strength far from having a "BIG ARM" by a long stretch.

2. Brady is one of the best in the league at reading and checking at the line. Manning IMO is the best in the league and its not even close.

3. Brady won 3 superbowls with NO ONE at WR. He had 1 1000 yard recievers till Moss and Welker, 1! He won superbowls with guys named Patten, Givens, Brown and with RB's named Antwan Smith and JR Redmond. His only 1000 yard back was Corey Dillion. Look at Brees weapons in Colston, Moore, Meecham and Henderson then add Shockey and Bush. Man there is no comparison.

Bush really had no one at wide reciever, but he does now thanks to the wat brees spreads the ball around, I'm tellin ya he regularly throws to 7 or 8 recievers in a drive, and it doesn't matter if there a superstar or not, course ther fast becoming superstars with his arm and play decisions. When he's on it's a work of art.

Brees is better. Brees has better footwork while Brady is slow. Only till New Orleans, did Brees have a good surrounding team while Brady always had a plethora of receivers. That plethora of receivers means throw first mentality which appeals to QB's. Accuracy is close but last year Brady was abysmal. Notice his receiver dwindled and the team performance suffered. Brees did not have a good core in SD and responded better than Brady. Granted, Brady is damn good but he cannot adapt as well. For me, that is the difference maker because everything is not perfect. Its a close comparison but I would pick Brees.

Please before 07 and Moss and Welker ( which had nothing to do with SB wins in 01 03 & 04), tell me all about this plethora of recievers Brady had.

Branch, Patten, Givens, Brown, Jackson, I wait with great anticipation.

I like Brees and am glad he got a SB victory.But please,we wouldn't even be seeing this thread if he hadn't finally won the SB.Brady has 3,some on teams that were underdogs if people will remember.Let Brees get at least one more and then this question might have some relevance.Until then,it isn't even close.

Your sarcasm means that the above receivers are not any good. Obviously, as a whole, they were outstanding so I do not understand your response. Football is a team sport which means everyone must know their specific role. Of course, go ahead and be bland by pulling out statistics. Guess what, statistics means nothing, championships mean more. Ask any NE fan, if they would swap any of the above for Moss the stat hog.

As a whole they were AVERAGE. Never were the Pats WR core considered great as individuals or as a group. Troy Brown was raved about because of his flexibility to play every where and his longevity but thats about it. The fact is very simple you ask anyone who knows anything about football and they will all tell you that until the Patriots brought in Moss and Welker they never had a great core of WR's...ever. And no I wouldnt take Patten, Givens or Branch for Randy. No one with a clue would.

Super Bowl wins has nothing to do with it. Teams win Super Bowls, not players. Super Bowl wins is not the way to gauge the greatness of a player. Even the best QB to ever play the game isnt going to win an SB on a team not capable.
