A Tale Of Two Quarterbacks

Posted by

On Super Sunday, you’ll be cheering for a winner regardless if it is for Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts or Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints!

Though Brees is a very successful player with a very impressive resume, has not yet won a Super Bowl victory. He was selected 4 different times to the Pro Bowl and was named 2004 Comeback Player of the Year by NFL. In 2008, he was named offensive player of the year. He signed a 6 year contract with New Orleans Saints Organization in 2006 worth 60 million dollars and since then had been working hard for them. By 2008, he was recognized by NFL as one of only 2 quarterbacks in sports history to throw a distance of 5,000 yards in a season. He is a very much respected and loved professional athlete because of his charity work.

On the other side of the field, Peyton Manning is another sports icon that’s larger than life. His career resume is equally impressive with only a Super Bowl win added to his successes. Fox Sports named him Player of the Decade. NFL considers him as the most marketable player with the most tv ads and programs. He and his spouse created the Peyback Foundation whose aim is to service the disadvantaged youth.

The irony of it is that Manning is a native of New Orleans and not Brees. Yet both have helped the city immensely after Hurricane Katrina. Both men gave a lot of time, effort and fund for charity work.

Most likely, several New Orleans fans would be watching tomorrow’s game and be confused which of the two heroes they will cheer for. Either way, the fans can’t go wrong.
