Drew Brees continues to click along at 40

We are in the thick of it now. Late era Drew Brees has finally arrived. After an age 39 season where the quarterback looked like a 29 year old quarterback, Brees’ age 40 season has made him look like the 40 year old quarterback he is. At some point even the greats fall off the cliff. Peyton Manning’s last season saw him throw 17 interceptions in only 9 games and this year’s version of Tom Brady is making him look like a 50 year old.

A major trait of late era Brees is how the deep passing attack has almost entirely left Brees’ game.
