It’s Time To Stop Bashing The Miami Dolphins Over Brees

Self flagellation is all the rage these days; we question ourselves, in all things and from all angles. In the arena of revisionist history, the Miami Dolphins made a boneheaded move in 2006 when they passed on San Diego quarterback Drew Brees in free agency, instead opting for Minnesota Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper, via trade.

Except, they didn’t. If we look at the careers of both quarterbacks, Culpepper was head and shoulders above Brees, both literally and figuratively speaking. At 6’4”, 255 pounds, Culpepper was ‘Big Ben’ Roethlisberger before there was a Big Ben in the NFL.
