Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated writes apiececomparing Wilson to the player he looked up to as a teenager, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees.

“He’s more talented than I am,” Brees tells SI. “He’s more athletic. He grasped the NFL game at a faster pace than I did. He has not only great leadership qualities, great charisma, but also the It factor that you look for in a young quarterback. I couldn’t be more impressed. You watch the road he traveled, and you’re happy for him and root for him.”

We’ll get to watch the two quarterback in action on the same field when New Orleans travels to Seattle to take on the Seahawks on Dec. 2.
