Well your/my standards dont really matter........his peers obviously think he's elite. So are you saying Manning and Brady are the only 2 elite QBs in the NFL? So I guess Rodgers, like Brees isn't elite either?
Both are SB MVPs and have been two of the top passers(yards, QB rating, comp % etc) in the NFL the past couple of years. If Brees and Rodgers arent elite in your eyes something is wrong.
i believe that Manning and Brady are the only 2 Elite QBs.. AS OF NOW.. im a.ssuming your reffering to analysts on ESPN/NFL network/NFL players and past players and while you have a valid point i believe that people are quick to hand out that "elite" title.. im not saying they arent great.. Rodgers is quickly rising up to becoming Elite.. no doubt about that.. but brees idk man.. i see him as a GREAT qb easily top 5.. but i wont ever put him down as arguably the best QB in the NFL or arguably the best QB of all time which i can do with Manning and Brady.. either can have a argument to be considered the G.O.A.T.. i cant say that for brees.. not to mention.. As i stated in the game thread can you say without a shadow of doubt that you would pick Brees over Manning or Brady given the chance?
I AM NOT SAYING HE IS NOT GREAT.. just a different Definition of Elite...
