This guy is a stud read stats

Don`t think Brees did all this in College. Saw him in the Senior Bowl. Made all kinds of passes to different receivers in that game(he only had a week to get timing down) . He is a play maker. I could be wrong but in a few yrs he could be the best QB of 2004 draft. Falls in the mold of a Joe Montana and Tom Brady (not very athletic IE:Slow Feet) Plus Charges get Giants #1 next yr! What a deal. Don`t think Giants will do good this yr. When you have guys calling the NFL Players Assoc. about being on the field to long. Wonder what Lombardi would have done? Giants need alot of time on the field after last yr!
