Mike Tanier on Brees vs. Unitas

Mike Tanier has a [nice piece on Drew Brees, Dan Marino, and Johnny Unitas][1]:

We should, of course, cherish the memories of Unitas and other legends. But we cannot do so at the expense of the present. Drew Brees is an all-time great at his prime. We must appreciate him while we have him. Every time we lapse into nostalgia, it’s a backhanded insult to a legacy that is still growing.
