Bridgewater was undefeated as starter last season not Brees.There are people on this forum who acted like we'd be better off with Bridgewater or Hill as starting quarterback in 2020...... So I would label those kinds of remarks as being far less intelligent than this one....... which, let's be very clear, was very unintelligent in and of itself.
Many of those games won in spite of the QB play, not because of it. And no denying the defense played out of their minds for that stretch because they knew the offensive output wasn't going to be Brees-like. TB is a good QB, but he's not even in the same conversation as Drew Brees.Bridgewater was undefeated as starter last season not Brees.
No worries tin. I wasn't busting on ya, just chuckling at the irony. I'm with Sandman in post #19 above. Simms can say DB9 is #16 QB in NFL, or he can say DB9 is the #1 best HOF QB in history of the game...either way, who cares what Simms thinks or says. He was a non-descript also-ran QB, and the mediocrity continues as a talking head. Like Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith, Shannon Sharpe, and some others, he's all style (bluff, bluster & blunder) and no substance. Famous for being an idiot is still famous. Relevant for moronic thoughts is still relevant. Like Sandman says...quit making him relevant.I saw a headline, didn't watch, after that. Seemed unnecessary.
But the sharing here for Sims ridicule seemed appropriate.
Brees better win this year. Better beat Brady twice. He better win.Many of those games won in spite of the QB play, not because of it.

Anyone who thinks otherwise isn’t worth arguing with. Completely trolling or completely ignorant.Many of those games won in spite of the QB play, not because of it.

For real. Listening to Chris Simms' opinions on QB play is like listening to Deion Sanders discuss the best tacklers in the game. As if he would know...Again, no one should care what Chris " I miss my spleen" Simms has to say about QBs.
I wonder if his dad feels the same way about Drew? I am more apt to listen what Phil has to say on QBs than his son.
Game manager, system quarterback, you can call it what you want. All I know is that the "old" Drew Brees has played better and won more games on average than the "young" Drew Brees has. He should also have another ring. Arm strength be damned. I like Drew exactly how he is right now, cautious, precise, and accurate. Now that his gunslinger days are long gone he has a sophisticated game. Brees is the very definition of aging gracefully.I don't think Drew is what he used to be in terms of skill and arm strength, and his stats bear that as does watching old highlights from the 2009-2013 seasons. I like to refer to him these days as a very elite game manager that can show flashes of his former greatness every once in awhile; his game is more predicated on efficiency than ever before, and his TD to INT ratios as of late are representative of that.
However, with that being said, to rank him #16 is absolutely ludicrous. There is no way you can tell me that there are 15 better quarterbacks in the NFL than Drew Brees. No freaking way.
