Fundamentally, Brees voted NFL's best QB

12/9/2009

The season’s not over yet, but New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees already has earned one league-wide award.

This one shouldn’t be a surprise at all -- Brees has been named the NFL’s best quarterback when it comes to fundamentals. For the first time ever, USA Football, the national governing body for youth and amateur programs, has joined the NFL Players Association to pick the All-Fundamentals Team. It was chosen by a six-person panel that included former NFL coach and player Herm Edwards and former NFL executive Carl Peterson.

Brees is one of only three NFC South players selected to the team. The others are Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez and Tampa Bay return man Clifton Smith.
