Drew Brees, Brett Farve, Dan Marino discussed on Red Sox Baseball


So at least eleven of sixteen games every year. Are in very friendly. And cozy environments. Nine being in domes that helps that's why to me what Tom Brady's able to accomplish playing in Boston having a play in New York. He gets a play Miami once a year buffalo stinks, especially get to go there in December. Forget it. Yeah. Man and got the plane a domain games a year until he went to Denver. So to me, Tom Brady is the most impressive. Any Brett farve is impressive to haven't had to play in Green Bay. But the reality is as incredible as seventy two thousand yards are factor in the time period that drew Brees is playing and I mean come on in thirteen years Heathrow for sixty thousand yards. What do you think Dan Marino who is the only God ever hit five thousand yards, by the way, when you think about Dan Marino's five thousand yards this season. He threw for that many yards. This is what's incredible about that statistic? Guys were barely touching four thousand yards. When Dan Marino got the five. Don, Makovsky member him the magic man for the Packers got to four thousand yards or people like, wow, it's unbelievable. Okay. Dan Marino when he got five thousand yards. It was as if Wayne Gretzky got to two hundred points and ninety two goals that year when the record high for points. I think it was one hundred sixty seven he's shattered the total Dan Marino shattered the record. I mean, it was even close now guys are passed by within a hundred yards. You know, if drew Brees loses the record this year. It's not going to be by somebody somebody six thousand yards fifty five hundred or fifty four ninety and a beat up by fourteen. So it's a nice detested. But the most important statistic that drew Brees has, but it's just not quite good enough to where you put them in the same boat is manning who I mean manning even won multiple rings to Brady's one five now farther only one one, but I think there's always limitations with five right? When we talk about far, unless you're a die hard Packers fan, and you just have Brett farve glasses you wear Wrangler jeans. You do realize Brett farve lot had a lot of faults over three hundred interceptions. Made some dumb throws at cost him important playoff games. And that's what it comes down to. So it's just a case where when you really look at drew Brees in this statistic. I'm not saying put an Asterix on it. That's not what I'm saying here. But what I am saying is the reality. Is you have to see exactly how he was able to accomplish this goal. Now. What's going to be impressive? Is this drew Brees will get eighty thousand yards? You don't think he's got eight thousand more yards in them. Well, here's what's amazing. He's gonna throw for another three thousand plus yards. This year barring injury, right. He's gonna be at seventy five thousand yards at the end of this year. At the end of next year. He's going to be in that seventy eight to eighty thousand range. Do you think he's slowing down? We talk about. Tom Brady's amazing at forty one. Do you know what drew Brees is doing this year? Through four and a half games. He's ten touchdowns. No interceptions. He is also now reached over fifteen hundred yards in four and a half games. Drew Brees isn't slowing down either at thirty nine. And as we talked about he plays in more favourable conditions where he's gonna last longer. And let's not forget this day and age you can't touch quarterbacks Brett farve played. He took some shots. Right. When Dan Marino played you can hit a Mark Gastineau can rip his head off gas? No was crazy, and he would rip off heads. It was a different time or quarterbacks. Didn't have the protection that drew Brees has today. I looked at the list of the top yardage totals of quarterbacks in NFL history. Let me give you something here. Number one, number two. And number three are all guys that we've seen planner our lifetime. And I don't mean like ten years ago. We Brett farve retired what six years ago. Right paint retired two years ago. Drew Brees is still playing Brady's number four on that list. I think or number five on that list. He's still playing he's going to get the seventy thousand yards. He's over sixty seven thousand yards. Do you like number six seven and eight. It's like Rafa, it's ally. Manning, Ben Rothlisberger and Philip rivers. Now, they're not going to get to seventy thousand yards. I don't think they will. But they're number six seven and eight in terms of all time passing yards. So when you look at football today at least seven or six of the top ten guys are current players or have just recently retired doesn't that tell you? It's more the time buried than anything Matt Ryan's gonna beat all these guys, by the way. Matt Ryan is what thirty years old thirty one years old that Ryan's over forty thousand passing yards already. And he's been in this league. What nine years ten years think about that? Forty four thousand yards forty three thousand thirty three years. He's thirty three years old little older than we thought. Yeah. Yeah. Forty thousand forty thousand yards at thirty three forty three thousand forty three thousand. Okay. So you know, what give them another four thousand per year at least five years that puts them at sixty three thousand he could hit seventy thousand yards in today's NFL and the and the way the the trend is going he could hit seventy thousand yards as well. Congratulations to drew Brees. I just wonder what damn Reno's numbers would be playing in the NFL today with the rules are in place today in the passing offense is today. What do you think Sean he'd be the first eighty thousand yards one hundred thousand? Yeah. Yeah, you're not. You're not crazy. That's how much better marina was than his contemporaries. No one else do for that many arts. We'll even close unfortunately win the big ones. The big one doesn't get the respect that a lot of people think he deserves. Although, you know, what when you start hearing these numbers, maybe does put Marino more in focus because he was putting up these type a numbers at a time. When obviously others were not drew Brees is putting up these numbers at a time where others are putting up these types of numbers. This is not you know, he's not the unicorn right now Reno was a unicorn back then. Where do you rank drew Brees as far as quarterbacks are concerned in his era? I would say fourth clearly fourth while you take manning. Yup. Yup. You take Rogers. There's no argument. There is no argument goes, he's at least fourth right? So what does that say? I mean, do you take that says a lot detailed Rothlisberger with three rings? You got to have three or two two to. No, you can't no. But you know, what? Like, I can't hold it against breeze where he plays and the system is played in. But. The other guy that has a chance to. Yeah. Better drew Brees. But I don't I don't see not yet. I don't see him. He's a four thousand yard guy matter. I mean if he wins another Super Bowl. Oh, I put Russell. Well. You're talking about in the in the hierarchy of quarterbacks generation. Yeah. He's at least fourth even with these numbers spread forth. Breezes better than five I always felt a Brett farve a slightly overrated because people like that ruggedness people like that he could take kids he played all those games in a row farve at times is a stupid quarterback. He made stupid decisions, and he's gotta pay for it in terms of the rankings. I don't put Brett farve ahead of drew Brees. I don't because I don't respect those across the field. Intercepted throws that cost and playoff games and cost the Packers games. Those are dumplings. Drew brees. Make those stupid throws the way that Brett farve did so no farms great. He's not greater than drew Brees. Sorry, brad. Not at all. All right. We have to get to some baseball here. I mean, it's just utterly insane. What is going on a Yankee Stadium? It has to be said. I mean, I I have to do it. If I'm gonna sit in Ripa David price who deserves to be ripped. We Severino is not getting away from my bulls. I'll tell you that next.
