Tom Brees must be a remarkable quarterback.
It was a softball question that should have brought the usual big names, only we received one we hadn't heard of before.
Skip to the 3:10 mark for the interesting comment.
You know, I try not to limit myself to comparing myself to one person,” Griffin said. “You try to blend your game from everybody else’s game. So you can be elusive like a Vick or a Randall Cunningham; you can manage the game and manage the pocket like Peyton Manning or Tom Brees; or just be exceptional at what you do like Aaron Rodgers. So I just try to take all that, put it in my game and then add my own twist to it.
If you are creating some combo-QB, you can't do much better than a Tom Brady-Drew Brees hybrid, a player who would pass for thousands of yards and sell Ugg boots with super swag.
In fact, we hope Griffin stands by his remark and tells people, "No, you heard me right. I want to be Tom Brees, maybe even Aaron Montana or Peyton Young."
Either way, this is a fun little hiccup that turned a throw-away question into a memorable answer. Now get out there and be like Tom Brees.
