Doug Farrar trolls everyone by ranking Tom Brady 4th among NFL QBs
No matter who you talk to, a vast majority of intelligent NFL observers will tell you that the best QBs in the game are (in some order) Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady. To the informed and educated, that's not really up for discussion.
You can probably mess around with the order a little bit (personally, I'd say it's Rodgers, Brady, and then Manning), but there's really no doubt that those are the league's 3 premier quarterbacks.
Farrar, however, has Drew Brees ranked 3rd ahead of Brady.
I'm not going to try to say that Drew Brees is a bad QB. Clearly he's one of the better QBs in the league, and I would place him solidly in 4th, behind the aforementioned three. He's very good, but I think he's clearly a step behind the top 3 in the NFL.
Perhaps Farrar was just impressed by Brees' gunslinging last year. After all, Brees led the NFL in all of the volume stats, including passing yards, TDs and interceptions.
But that's exactly what Brees is, and what he has been. Again, I'm not saying he's a bad quarterback. He's very good. But his game has been one of volume over efficiency, particularly when compared to guys like Rodgers, Brady, and Manning, who are just as adept as Brees at finding the end zone, but are a lot stingier with the football when it comes to throwing interceptions.
Nice try, Doug Farrar, but we're going to have to call you out on this one. You stirred the pot, you made us mention your name and your silly list, so congratulations on that. But we're not stupid. We won't fall for this one.
