cam will be in the league 15 years easy.

drew brees will be around for 3 more, maybe 4.

cam newton is about to break the mold of quarterback play and defenses around the league will organize draft strategies around stopping him. young african american kids in high school will stop being converted to wide receivers because of their athletic advantage and learn to be a cam newton-type quarterback, and in ten years you'll see the first generation of new quarterbacks following the cam newton archetype. his legendary play will impact the league and the sport of football as a whole in the present and in the future for generations to come.

drew brees, meanwhile, has that heinous mole

yea i'll take cam.

I think you have to go Brees. He's only 32 so he should have at least 5 more years in him at a very high level. He's one of the most accurate passers the game has seen. Who knows if Cam will ever get to that level.

Brees is accurate...he also turns the ball over. So that said, age still is the ultimate factor here.

So accurate that he has the most interceptions by a qb. The past two years.

False

Fact: All interceptions are a result of inaccurate throws.

More goes into being accurate than completion percent and TD/Ints.

When I say build a team around I mean not win the next three games, but contend the next 5 seasons.

Gotta go Brees especially if it's 5 years. If it's longer than 10, you'd hope Cam can develop into that QB but it's not a guarantee he gets to that level. Got to go with the known over the unknown in this scenario.

No one knows if Brees could decline the next two years, he's getting older and turning the ball over a lot.

Drew Brees- 32 Years old

Cam Newton 22 Years old

Considering this year's performance, age alone dictates you choose Cam...no contest.

That is the big issue really. Lok at Peyton Manning, as he got older he started getting injured and had to have 3 neck surgeries and might not play again. At this point the reality is that Brees likely has 3 or 4 more years left before he starts to decline. Newton if he only plays to 32 years still has 10 years left to play. So who do you build around? THe guy who is likely to be here in 10 years.

For a QB at 32 years old, durability issues grow and accuracy and ability decline over time. It's the beginning of a crossroads for a professional player. Some are able to maintain some effectiveness, but most age out and lose the competitive edge.

Will Brees have 5 years in him at a very high level? That's far from certain.

No one knows if Cam could decline the next two years, it happened to Freeman, who many pre draft compared Cam to.

At their current levels, Cam is nowhere close to Breesus.

Cam... Unless I'm trying to fit the last few pieces to win a Ring in the next few years, then I'd take Brees.

Brees is a damn good qb.

Cam is taller, stronger arm, a bigger threat.

I'm sure any saints fan would call me biased, but i'll take the bigger qb that has proven he can also play at a high level.

Wish cam had bree's pocket awareness/presense.

Fact: All interceptions are a result of inaccurate throws.

Incorrect, busted routes account for many interceptions as well as exemplary defensive skills and/or telegraphed throws.
