Comparing Marino to Brees or vice versa takes some of the luster off when you realize that Tom Brady will more than likely break the 5K yd plateau in passing stats next week...Rodgers also has a passer rating of 122.5 compared to Brees at 108.4
Brees will probably beat his NFL Passer Percentage record he set in 09 as he is currently close to 71%!
Brees would be the first one to say that records and awards are secondary to winning the the whole enchalada.
Like 09, I can see where the Saints win it all and beating the MVP selected QB along the way, though I think Brees has a good shot at winning it this season.
No team is playing better down the stretch than Brees'. If the Saints get pass the Wildcard round, beat the 49ers at Candlestick, I don't think there is a team that can beat them. Not with that power running game and the most accurate QB in league history pulling the trigger!
What about the high probability that the Giants and Eli travel to GB in the Divisional round? Giants, like the Saints save their best for the tougher teams.
Anything can happen and there is still a lot of Football to be played!
IF the Saints make it to Lambeau, I think the Packers will be ready.
Did the Saints and Packers play earlier this year???
The Saints are a very good football team, no doubt.
But I would be careful dismissing the Packers at Lambeau.
May not be the gimmee you think..........

Remember, the Pack came out smoking hot in the first quarter but, in the final three quarters of that game the Saints outscroed the Packers 28 to 17. Also, the Packers fortune goes the way of Rodgers. Though I said here on RTF before the season that Rodgers is the league's current best QB, if he is not having a good game, the Packers have zero running game to help them out. And, their secondary can be thrown on.
Two good teams and lots of speculation by fans!
Now, back to the ESPN College Football Boards where LSU and Bama fans are taunting one another in a supreme trash-talking marathon!
