Reggie Bush compares Matthew Stafford to Drew Brees

Chris Graythen

Reggie Bush said this week that Matthew Stafford reminds him of Drew Brees when he first arrived in New Orleans.

In the past, Reggie Bush has compared the Detroit Lions' offensive style to the type of offense he played in with the New Orleans Saints. This week, he made another comparison between the Lions and Saints, this time at the quarterback position.

Specifically, Bush said that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford reminds him of Saints quarterback Drew Brees, at least when Brees first arrived in New Orleans. Bush sees a lot of similarities between Stafford right now and Brees at an earlier point in his career. From the Lions' official site:

"Stafford is a really good quarterback and he reminds me a lot of Drew when Drew first got to New Orleans," Bush said Tuesday. "Still young, and has a long ways to go in his career, but he's very talented."

"He's a leader. He's very vocal. He has all the intangibles to be a great quarterback in this league and he already is a great quarterback in this league, so I look forward to playing with him this year."

Aside from being teammates with Bush, what else do Stafford and Brees have in common? Both players threw for more than 10,000 yards over the course of the last two seasons. Brees was actually able to throw for more than 5,000 yards in each of the last two seasons. Stafford came up a bit short of that feat with 4,967 yards passing last season, but both players have shown an ability to sling the ball around, that's for sure.
