New Orleans Saints Drew Brees called best player in NFC South, ever
 

  brees-733248 Last Friday, Drew Brees made news worldwide with the announcement that he and the New Orleans Saints had come to an agreement for the next five years and the contract stalemate would be kaput.  Two days later, Brees signed the five-years 100 million dollar contract with an unbelievable 40 million dollars guaranteed for 2012. 

 

On a much lesser public note, today, Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com gave  the New Orleans Saints star quarterback an honor of great recognition, at least for now…he considers Brees to be the best player in NFC South history.  Yep, not just the best quarterback, but the best player, beating Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks.

This is how Yasinskas put it:


What he did in 2011: He set the all-time single-season record with 5,476 passing yards and the Saints set all sorts of offensive records in a 13-3 season. Brees has been a good quarterback for a long time, but last season was his best. 

Why he’s No. 1 in 2012: I had to put a lot of thought into the rest of this list, but this was the easiest call (although Elbert Mack did get some consideration). Brees is one of the league’s best quarterbacks, maybe even the best. He obviously is the best player in the NFC South right now. In fact, I’ll go one step further. I used to say former Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks was the best player in the history of the NFC South and that was based only on what players did from 2002 on because that’s when the division came into existence). No offense to Brooks, who will be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame soon, but Brees has passed him as the best player in NFC South history.
