Lance Moore Compared Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger, New Orleans Saints Fans Weren’t Happy


Lance Moore was making some comparisons with his new quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, with his old quarterback, Drew Brees, and he believes that Big Ben has a stronger arm than Brees. Here is what he told ESPN:

“I would say that Ben has a little bit stronger of an arm, maybe a lot stronger arm,” Moore said. “Just from the last couple of days with him here, that’s something that kind of jumps out at me. If you are kind of lazy with your eyes the ball will zoom right past you. That’s something that I will have to adjust to. I feel like the quarterback should never really have to adjust to the receiver.”

Because of that statement, the people down in New Orleans are giving Moore the business. He wasn’t trying to disrespect Drew with his comments, but the fans took at that way and Moore had to respond on his twitter:

Ben might have a stronger arm than Drew, but that doesn’t mean he is a better or worse quarterback. That just means he throws it harder. A few quarterbacks out there might have a stronger arm, but that means nothing.

    Ben is a stronger thrower. No secret there. Brees is not a gunslinger but he is the master of the touch pass. Both great, both for different reasons. Ben is just a beast at improvising and tough to bring down. Brees is probably the smartest qb in the league and that includes Manning and Brady. Brees’ stats are sick but his offense is built for that. Ben has been involved in two shootouts with him and they are 1-1 with both winning at home. This year is round 3 and I believe it will be the game of the year! (side note*) most of Brees’ picks are from balls underthrown.

    I don’t think Drew would even have a problem with what he said. I don’t think it’s a secret that Ben has a stronger arm.

    lets see Brees do this in th Super Bowl.
