Sunday night, it didn’t look like Drew Brees was ever going to miss.

So it figures that he’d hit on another award today.

Brees was named the NFC’s offensive player of the week after his stunning display in the Saints’ 49-17 win over the Cowboys Sunday night.

He finished 34-of-41 for 392 yards and four touchdowns, and completed 19 straight passes at one point in the first half.

Since 2006, Brees has won 16 player of the week awards, tying him with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady over that span.

    These guys each have an entire season worth of POW awards in 7 years? That’s pretty impressive.

    Spoken like a true sore loser.

    Also, Brees is an offensive QB, Tavon Austin is on special teams–get your football straight (Tavon received NFL honors for special teams this week). Hell, I’m a woman and even I have it straight!

    Drew never gets his due. It’s always, Manning this, Brady that, Rodgers blah blah. Just look at the friggin numbers and records he holds. And don’t give me the Super Bowl wins crap- P Manning (1), Rodgers (1), Brees (1), Brady (3). It’s really comical how he is constantly overlooked and undervalued. He’s an all-time great and will no doubt go into the HOF.

    NFL MVP award is a joke, It seems they want Peyton Manning winning it every year even when he aint playing. I think last years award they gave to AP is the first time they got it right since Kurt Warner. Problem is its an award decided 4-5 weeks into the season.

    He’s been better than Brady since he got to NO.
