A great validation or argument professional debaters typically use in determining whether a player is truly amazing is consistency. Having a professional athlete stay consistently accurate or consistently great throughout a season is a solid validation of whether the athlete is truly worth the term “amazing” or “phenomenal”.
Let me be the first to say that Drew Brees is a consistent quarterback. Despite what the haters and naysayers may tell you, the stats have shown that this New Orleans Saints quarterback is doing just fine. Whether it be accuracy, the arm strength or simple passing yards and touchdowns that he’s thrown, Drew Brees has produced similarly amazing numbers.
Let me take to some specific statistics to validate my argument…
Since joining the New Orleans Saints in 2006, every year Drew Brees at the very minimum has thrown for 4,400 passing yards, 26 passing touchdowns, a 63% completion percentage, and an 89.0 passer rating.
Over the past four seasons, (2013-2016) Drew Brees at the very least has thrown for 4,800 passing yards, has thrown at least 32 passing touchdowns, has had at least a 68.0% completion percentage, and a 97.0 passer rating. If that doesn’t show consistency through a quarterback, I don’t know what does.
Drew Brees proves every single season that he is very much so a consistent quarterback. His consistency is one of the defining aspects that help to validate his greatness.
