    I think I might be the only one who is selfish on this f-in board. I wanted LT to have this honor all by himself. I know Brees had a great year and all, but I just thought LT was that much better.

    I'm guessing that Drew Brees was docked at least a little bit for lying to the fans, otherwise this award would've been all his.

    I'm still pissed at Brees for doing so well AFTER he left San Diego. LT should have been the lone winner of this award, IMHO.

    So, since Brees is only great in a season after he's been publicly dissed (in his opinion,) what's going to motivate him next year?

    I would agree, but the NFC is just so damn bad that even the Lions have a chance of making the playoffs.

    Nah Brees did better because he has good recievers. No matter how good a QB you have if your recievers are mediocre than your not going to put up huge numbers.

    This award recognizes off-field community service as a criteria according to the article...they both deserve it and I am happy for them.
