I know that there are still five weeks left in the NFL’s regular season. I also know that people who vote like to do things to shake the can sometimes. In this case, considering Brett Favre over Drew Brees for the NFL MVP would be a travesty.
Brees threw at least five passes in New Orleans 38-17 pasting of New England that could only be caught if thrown to a perfect location. He has been doing this game after game all year long. As a biased Saints fan, I have watched Brees shred defenses with this sort of precision passing all year.
How many people think the Saints are a flash in the pan now? This was supposed to be the game that proved what a rouse this team was. Yeah, they play in a crappy division, but so has Pittsburgh for the last few years. When the Saints are in full stride, the only way to beat them is to outscore them, and I just do not see that happening.
Looking at the rest of their schedule, New Orleans has a Thursday game with Dallas in a couple of weeks that could pose a threat to going undefeated. They also play scrappy Atlanta again, but I don’t think anyone can beat the Saints this season. They can beat themselves, which is probably the better choice.
Give Brees the trophy now. And thank you San Diego a million times over for the gift you have given New Orleans!
