Lead the league in completion percentage…. again
It’s almost safe to say Drew Brees is the most accurate passer in NFL history.
He’s led the league in completion percentage for three straight seasons. On top of that, last season, he set the record for the highest single-game completion percentage. Against Indianapolis, a game in which he threw four touchdowns, Brees was an insane 29-for-30.
Having over ten attempts in ten games, Brees completed over 70% of his passes in eight of them. Last season, it wasn’t even close. Brees was 3.9% better than Derek Carr, the second-best passer by completion percentage.
However, new quarterbacks like Joe Burrow will come into the league and aging quarterbacks like Tom Brady have more weapons around them, so we can’t take for granted what Brees has done. We definitely can’t just assume it’s easy to step onto the field and do what he’s done.
That said, it should be a top goal of Brees to once again prove why he should be considered a top-five quarterback of all time. He can do just that by leading the league in completion percentage.
