New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs have exchanged admiration for each other prior to their game on Sunday.

Earlier this week, Suggs told the media that he thought Drew Brees was better than Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. “Maybe it could be my personal vendetta against the other guys, but he’s definitely one of the premier quarterbacks in this league, and he’s got the numbers to prove it,” Suggs said. “And not only that, he’s got the hardware to prove it.”

On Thursday, Brees dismissed the Ravens defensive implosion against the Texans. “The Texans have a great offense, and they were able to move the ball in two-minute situations and stuff at the end of the game, Brees said. “But I have a lot of respect for that defense. I always have. So I just kind of see that as a little bit of an aberration.”

Do you think Terrell Suggs is right about Brees?
