Drew Brees is the only player from the New Orleans Saints to make this list, but for good reason. He has been one of the top three best quarterbacks in the NFL for quite some time now and always gives the Saints a chance to win. Brees had three consecutive seasons with 5,000 or more yards from 2011-2013 and narrowly missed that mark in 2014 with 4,952 yards through the air.

Brees is a gun slinger. He isn’t afraid to throw the ball to anyone at any time and has had a lot of success with doing so. Brees led the Saints to a Superbowl victory in 2009 and is a nine-time pro bower. Brees has two NFC MVP’s and won the Superbowl MVP award as well. Brees’ stats speak for themselves and will go down as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game.
