1. Drew Brees can freeze a safety better than any quarterback alive, and that includes Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.

There is a reason Brees set an <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORSPT000007" title="NFL" href="/topic/sports/football/nfl-ORSPT000007.topic">NFL</a> record for the most passing yards in a postseason game (that ended in regulation) on Saturday with 466 against the Lions, and it's not just because Detroit played poorly on defense. Brees is so good at holding the safety with his eyes, then throwing a different direction at the last second, he's become one of the toughest quarterbacks to defend in the history of football. Watch the way he forces defenders to commit, then catches them leaning the wrong way. He may not have the strongest arm, and he may not be very tall, but if you can't pressure him and stay disciplined in coverage, you don't stand a chance against him.
