I accept this debate. I would like us to define "better" though, As there is some subjectivity in this term.

Thank you for your acceptance! I look forward to a civil debate

In my opinion, "better" should be defined as a more skilled and more talented player. Drew Brees has the stats to show his superiority over Brady. Brees has more total passing yards, More passes completed, A greater passer rating, And a higher YPA over his career. Additionally, He only trails Brady in passing TDs by 5, Which is a 2 or 3 game difference. Brees has done all of this having played less games than Brady.

I can't figure out why this is not accepting my argument

I'll put it in the comments

They are tied in 4th quarter comebacks at 35. And Brees has a very slight edge in game winning drives.

If we keep looking at their careers though, A few things do stand out:
Brady has 56 more wins
Brady has a 78% winning percentage, While Brees has a 59%.
Brady has made the first team all pro more times, Has made the pro bowl more times, Has been named player of the week more times, And player of the month more times.

All of these do point to Brady being the better quarterback. And we still haven't got to the most important reason - but I'll save that for RD3

I think that skill and talent are subjective, But you seem to be basing this on statistics, So that works.
When we look at statistics, They are pretty equal.
Drew Brees is leading in Total QBR, And they are pretty much equal in QB Rating. Brees leads in yards, And has had a slightly better completion percentage. On the other hand, Brady leads in TD"s and maybe more importantly, Has significantly fewer interceptions. Yards per attempt is basically even.

Or Not - Not sure what I have in my argument that is causing an issue. I'm writing right now to try and get it on the comments
