I have to start off by saying that Super Bowl XLIV was great. Other than the pick six by Tracy Porter, the whole game was close. I am very happy for the Brees family and all they've accomplished. But I can't forget about the rest of the Saints community. They've been through a lot and have overcome all devastations. CONGRATULATIONS NEW ORLEANS!!!!
Drew Brees has been in the NFL for 9 years and he has already pasted the 30,000 yard milestone, which is the same length it took the great Brett Favre. Brees has over 200 passing touchdowns, with only 110 interceptions. He has a 64.8 % career completion percentage. He has a career QB rating of 91.9, which is the 9th highest of all-time, 7th in active quarterbacks. Brees has had 4 consecutive seasons with 4,000+ passing yards. He finally found his home in New Orleans.
Many questioned him because of his lack of Super Bowl experience.Well,after winning the Super Bowl and SB MVP today, he had those critics putting their foot in their mouths after completing 32 of 39 for 288 yards and 2 touchdowns, nearly going perfect in his first ever Super Bowl.
With Brees still in his prime, I expect MUCH more from him and the New Orleans Saints. He still has many great years ahead of him and will pass his way into the record books..... and a spot in the Hall of Fame
