I like the Brees comparison.
I probably like Barkley more than most.
With Brees, it's not just about accuracy, it's about anticipation.
He not only studies defenses, he studies his receivers, learns their strengths and weaknesses, their tendencies, and knows exactly where they will be on any given play.
He has one of the weakest arms in the league, but because he has dedicated himself to mastering the mental aspects of the game, he throws with the best combination of accuracy and anticipation in the game.
