Drew Brees is Good at Football

While I argue that calling Drew Brees the “NFL’s BEST quarterback” is a case of hyperbole running wild, this video of him is pretty fucking awesome. As part of the show Sport Science, Drew Brees was pitted against Olympic archers in an epic battle of accuracy from 20 yards.

The archers manage a meager 50% bullseye hits in their attempts while Brees steps up and demolishes them. The video is a little long, but you can do it, it’s worth it if only for the awesome slow-motion shots of Brees throwing a ball. I also learned something interesting, did you know that SOME wobble in a football toss is not only good, but NECESSARY? See, the Internet IS useful.
