Drew Brees already has a well-deserved reputation for accuracy -- he's completed 65.9 percent of passes in his career, a mark that puts him among the all-time leaders -- but you won't believe just how dead-on he can be until you watch him bulls-eye a Frisbee at Saints training camp.

Seriously, that is perfect -- as dead-center as you can get on a target that doesn't move in any way like, say, a wide receiver (or Jimmy Graham). We can't imagine the type of light-speed calculations Brees must be doing in order to pull that off, mainly because we struggle to throw crumpled-up pieces of paper into a trash can from 5 feet away.

The numbers say Tom Brady no longer is a top-five quarterback. Brady, meanwhile, says only one number matters: the score. All of which is to say, the status of the New England Patriots star is up for discussion. Where does the three-time Super Bowl champion rank among the NFL's signal-callers today?

Richard Sherman isn't universally loved, especially after his now-infamous postgame tirade against Michael Crabtree and the San Francisco 49ers. But that doesn't mean he's without his fans; quite the opposite, in fact, as the Seattle Seahawks cornerback ranked 10th on the NFL's list of most-bought jerseys. Two of Sherman's teammates, Russell Wilson (second) and Marshawn Lynch (sixth) also made the list. No. 1? Their opponent's quarterback in Super Bowl XLVIII, Peyton Manning.
