If the “Big 3″ are off of the board cheap nike kobe 7 when I pick in Round 1, I will go with Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski (in PPR leagues) over taking Cam Newton or Matthew Stafford in Round 1. I’m not nearly as comfortable with those two as I am with the top-three at the position.
Although there is much correlation between the two strong-armed quarterbacks, you’d have to anatomize from the inmost impulse that both leaders use to dominate on and off the field.
Brees, when interviewed after Tuesday’s practice with the Patriots had this to share with newshounds, “The heart and the desire and the competitiveness and the love of the game – I see the way he approaches it. I’ts very obvious in the way he plays. I certainly have that within me as well.”
We’re talking about two of the hardest working quarterbacks in the NFL, who together, connected for close to 11,000 passing yards and 85 touchdown passes in the 2011 season alone.
Both of these ringleaders also share something else in common. Most Saints fans have knowledge of the situation that occured when Brees was transfered from the San Diego Chargers after a shoulder injury and looked over by almost all the teams in the NFL yet landing prolifically in New Orleans. Brady had similar woes, he was passed over time and time air max 90 hyperfuse again during the 2000 draft until New England took a chance on him.
Yeah, they were there to see some exciting action, but Brady and Brees are the sparkplugs. The quarterbacks each slaughtered Dan Marino’s single-season passing record last year, with Brees (5,476 yards) outlasting Brady (5,235) on the season’s final day.
“It sounds crazy,” cornerback Devin McCourty said. “You try to be perfect on every play when you go against quarterbacks of that caliber.”
Brees, who already has one preseason game to his credit, was a little crisper than Brady, who has struggled in recent practices. Brees completed 15-of-21 attempts with one interception, which was plucked by safety Steve Gregory.
Brady was perfect out of the gate in one-on-ones, when a Patriots receiver ran a route against a Saints defensive back. Then he was 10-of-13 with an nike air more uptempo for sale interception in the end zone against the Saints’ defense in 7-on-7s.
Things got murky in 11-on-11 work, though. Brady was 7-of-16 with two touchdowns and one interception in full-team work. He also drew a defensive pass interference penalty on a throw to tight end Rob Gronkowski.
