I guess it's good news that Drew Brees is a late bloomer, right? The longer it takes your body to mature the older you are when you hit your prime as far as I am concerned. That's my takeaway from a picture of Peyton Manning looking like Drew Brees' father when in reality he's only two years his elder. I have to imagine that this means that Drew Brees is just starting to get better with age like a fine wine. After all, when he resembled a high school kid that ALWAYS took the extra pork chop at family dinner, Peyton Manning was waltzing around looking like he just finished up the back 9 with coworkers from the firm.
How can it already be the twilight of Brees' career when he didn't even get rid of his baby fat until he was damn near able to drink legally? When he was 19 years old he looked like he was 14, ipso facto, he's essentially a 37 year old with a 32 year old body. Makes perfect sense when you see how he finished up last season. Don't write the guy off yet. There's still a lot of miles in that arm. Don't take my word for it, go read the 'Human Development' chapter out of any science book. Drew Brees pushed back puberty and in the process he earned himself a bigger window for production in professional football. Hope it was worth having clear skin by sophomore year Peyton, because Drew Brees is going to pour some salt in the wound caused by that Super Bowl XLIV loss by breaking your records well into his 40's. Age ain't nothing but a number, and Drew Brees' math has apparently been off for decades.
