This week's Meast merits his own post - he's Drew Brees of the Saints. You already know the basics here: tossed 5 TD's vs. the Cowboys, made the Saints a contender, helped Katrina victims, is a really good person, and used to have a birthmark that could stop air traffic. But I'd like to say five other things about Brees:
-Drew Brees is the best quarterback to ever play for New Orleans. Now, this doesn't take much. The most acclaimed passer in Saints history is Archie "The Meddler" Manning. Here are Manning's career numbers:
2011-3642 23911 yds 55.2% 125 TD's 171 INT's 67.3 Rating
Gahhhhhhh!!!! That's fucking awful. Captain Big Ears threw 20 or more picks in a season four goddamn times and had a career record of 47-139-3. Of course, he's a Manning, so none of that could have been his fault. Ever wonder what Craig Whelihan's career stats would look like if someone was dumb enough to keep starting him for a decade? Well, here you go.
The Saints' history of quarterbacks would even make a Detroit fan wince. Let's see, there was all-purpose punchline Billy Joe Tolliver. And there's Billy Joe Hobert. Then there was Bobby Hebert, who sucked but who gave us this fine quote:
You know what's interesting? The quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons is Bobby Hebert. No "r". Which I find fascinating. You know it's Herbert h-e-r-b-e-r-t, Hebert h-e-b-e-r-t. "Ay-Bear". It's a fun name to pronounce. Try and say it Hebert. Take a shot.
There was John Fourcade. There was Mike Buck. Remember him? He had long greasy hair and shit. You can read the whole list here. It's like reading the Hindenburg roster, it's so awful.
So Brees has little competition here. Not only is he the greatest QB ever to wear a Saints uniform, he's the best one BY MILES, and it only took him 13 games to establish that fact. I'm not sure any free agent outside of Reggie White has made such a dramatic difference in the fortunes of one NFL team.
-Because of Brees, the Saints are more than some dipshit feel-good team that pulls wins out of its ass during a charmed season. They're way better than that. In fact, outside of San Diego, I'm pretty sure they're the most exciting team in the NFL. They went to Dallas to play one of the league's better pass defenses, and they destroyed them. Even Joumana Kidd doesn't get beaten that badly.
Brees has made the Saints more than a cute team, he's made them a dangerous team no one in their right mind wants to play during the playoffs. They are not just some uplifting showcase for a candyass Bryant Gumbel piece anymore. They're just really, really fucking good. And when's the last time the Saints were ever that?
Not only can they get to the Super Bowl. They can win it. The Saints. And if that happens, everyone's gonna get laid.
-If you go by traditional Yahoo scoring, Brees is the 2nd highest scoring player in fantasy football. And I have him. Fuck yeah.
-Drew Brees is one of the coolest fucking names ever. The first name, in particular, can make some panties drop. Such a strong, virile first name. Almost too much for just one penis.
And Brees is a cool last name too. I guess.
-And finally, I got this email for the KSK Reader Bukkake:
I'd be interested to see one of you rank the NFL QB's based on the hotness level of their girlfriends/wives. Plus, this will give you an excuse to kill a few hours searching hot women on Google Images all day - and thus do all the heavy lifting for the rest of us pervs.

Well Tony, here's a picture of Brees' wife, Brittany:
So hot. I mean, look at that tie and how it sets off her sport coat. That is one handsome lady. Oh wait, no. She's the blonde one. My mistake.
Seriously, Brittany Brees has gotta be up there. Way the fuck up there. And Jeff Garcia's chick so doesn't count.
So here's to Drew Brees - Meast of the Week for Week 14. Greatest Saints QB ever. Killer name. Hotass wife. That's a good day's work. Salud.
