To say that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been doing well recently is a massive understatement. Leading his team to their tenth consecutive victory on Thursday night, there's a reason why he's the MVP favorite. In fact, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports that Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram think it's time to put Brees up there with some of the all-time greats.
"We've been telling you this; he's the GOAT, man," Ingram said. "Undrafted, drafted, it don't matter. If somebody found you on Poydras and you put a uniform on him it don't matter," Kamara added. What made Brees' Thursday showing even more impressive, is that all four receivers he threw touchdowns to went undrafted.
At the age of 39, Brees is definitely making a big showing recently, and will likely be named the league's MVP for the first time in his career. He's currently leading the NFL in completion percentage, QBR, and quarterback rating, and his second career Super Bowl title is definitely within reach.
Eat your heart out, Patrick Mahomes.
