Is Drew Brees the Best Offensive Player in the NFL?
The 2011 season was quite the season for New Orleans all-world quarterback Drew Brees.
He was the NFL's 2011 Offensive Player of the Year. He broke Peyton Manning's NFL record for most completions (450) with 468 completions. He broke his own record for completion percentage, completing 71.6 percent of his passes. Oh, and he broke Dan Marino's 27-year-old, single-season passing record, passing for 5,476 yards. He also threw for 46 touchdowns.
Brees is a threat to opposing defenses every time he drops back.
Of course there are a few other football players that can dominate and take over on offense: Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, to name a few. But out of all the elite players in the league who had spectacular seasons as well, Drew Brees received the honor of being voted Offensive Player of the Year.
If you look at what Drew Brees has done the past few seasons with New Orleans, he has been a machine.
Here are Brees' numbers the past few seasons, not including the playoffs:
Is Drew Brees the best offensive player in the NFL?
He has helped the New Orleans franchise rise, and as long as Drew Brees is at the helm, the Saints will be in the running for the Super Bowl. As Brees was breaking records last season, he was also helping the Saints in breaking single-season record for most offensive yards with 7,747 yards and first downs with 416.
The Saints offense and Brees have been very difficult to stop, and it was evident. Some of the toughest defensive teams in the NFL couldn't stop Brees and the Saints offense last season. Brees scorched the New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers, to name a few. He was almost nearly unstoppable.
He's a machine. He's the best offensive player in the NFL.
