It's sort of amazing how badly they misjudged Brees.
Living in San Diego, I bring it up ALL of the time. LOL Chargers fans try to rationalize it, but it is as simple as this:
Brees AND Fitzgerald >>>>>>>>> Rivers alone
Rivers has been alright, but Brees has been phenomenal. And, add one of the greatest (if not "the" greatest) WR of the past decade… and it is not even close.
