ESPN is not only The World Wide Leader In Sports, they are also apparently The World Wide Leader In Knowing Our Destinies & All Future Events. On this particular poll (man does ESPN love them some polls!) ESPN asks you, the reader, to rank all the quarterbacks in NFL history who have won one Super Bowl. And it lists Drew Brees as the most recent one-Super Bowl title winner:
After completing the best season in New Orleans Saints history, Drew Brees has finally won his first Super Bowl. Brees' lone Super Bowl victory puts him on an eclectic list of starting quarterbacks with one title to their names. From all-time greats like Brett Favre to big personalities like Jim McMahon, 18 men have started and won pro football's biggest game but once in their careers.So there you go. Aside from the fact that ESPN is keeping from us vital information about the future -- such as, when exactly will the damn dirty apes take over or when and where exactly will our robot overlords land their massive fleet of UFOs -- they've also just ruined Super Bowl Sunday for all of us by revealing the winner. No need to bother watching the game now. We already know the outcome. Thanks a lot ESPN! Jerks!
Update: As you may have figured out already, ESPN has changed the link and it now directs you to their front page.
hat tip to reader Sam K. for sending in the link

Unless you've been stuck on a desert island this football season, or you're this guy, you've watched pretty much every Monday Night Football broadcast this year. And, in doing so, you've noticed that ESPN color analyst/former Bucs head coach Jon Gruden loves the crap out of pretty much every quarterback in the NFL. They all reside on this side of awesome. Every one of them.
Saints coach Sean Payton asked Gruden to sit in on some offensive meetings during training camp. And now Gruden's talking about it. And guess what, Gruden LOVES Drew Brees:
In a conference call with the national media Thursday, Gruden continued to rave about Brees.
“I spent a lot of time there in New Orleans watching this guy," Gruden said. “He is the surgeon. He will cut you up with three-yard passes. His guys will take those three-yard passes and they can run with it after they catch it. They can line up any formation and any personnel group you give them. They might line up in 30 different formations on the first 30 plays of the game.
The Surgeon? Goy. Well, at least it's better than the moniker he gave Peyton Manning (The Sheriff. Still quite don't know what that means).
For the record, Brees showed his appreciation for Gruden's visit last August and called the coach "a heck of a guy" on his Twitter. Asked for a response to Brees' tweet, Gruden smiled and then added, "Tee-hee."
