Brees’ MVP Chances Aren’t Hurt After Saturday Nights Setback

In New Orleans, the papers are head-lining how Drew Brees is falling behind in the MVP Race and how Peyton Manning is jumping way ahead. Well, I guess the writers didn’t do their research. If they would have they would have noticed that Drew is still right there with Peyton here are some stats between the two:

Drew Brees
Team Record: 13-1
QB Rate: 109 (#1 in NFL)
Touchdowns: 33 (Tied for First)
Completion Percentage: 69 (#1 in NFL)
Interceptions: 11
Yards: 4130 (#3 in NFL)

Peyton Manning
Team Record: 14-0
QB Rate: 102 (#5 in NFL)
Touchdowns: 33 (Tied For First)
Completion Percentage: 68 (#2 in NFL)
Interceptions: 15
Yards: 4213 (#1 in NFL)

So, by the key stats it actually looks like Drew Brees is doing better in some of the higher categories like quarterback rating, interception, and completion percentage. Another fact is that if Drew didn’t have such a bad game on Saturday and if Peyton didn’t have such a good one on Thursday, he would be way behind Drew Brees in the touchdown category. This past week Brees threw one touchdown pass, Manning threw four. Please, don’t tell me Drew is struggling against Peyton. It’s s still close and if you ask me Drew Brees is ahead.

  1. I like Manning more than Brees

  2. The AINTS lost to tampa bay bucs today 20-17 thanks to # 9 who help them win anyway. Also they will lose against carolina panthers in 1 / 03 /2010 13-3 record for 2009 . I repeat no but no homefield advantage for the AINTS at all. The playoff will now go thru minn and the AINTS will lose again. They will be sitting at home and watching the playoffs on T V. One more thing and no superbowl 44 apperance at all.
