What is Versus?

SportsWriters has created Versus. A new way to compare and debate articles written by two sports writers with clashing views. SportsWriters identifies a hot topic and locates two writers (typically from different markets) who have expressed an opinion on that topic, and have written an article with supporting arguments.

The result is a thought provoking opinion match up.

  • Versus presents each article, side by side, with a summary of key points.
  • Readers can rate the match up, and comment on who makes the more compelling argument.
  • Directly below the match up, readers provide their critical comments.
  • What makes Versus unique, is that you can see how each commenter voted, and you can rate their comment.
  • Writers get rated on their article, and Members on their comments.

Everything is up for debate with Versus!

Was Drew Brees snubbed by not being selected for the NFL 100th Anniversary Team

The NFL was celebrating its 100th Anniversary in 2019. To add to the occasion, they created a list of the all-time top players in the league. One category that caused a stir was quarterback, as New England’s Tom Brady was the only current one to make the list. However, fans of the New Orleans Saints were outraged because their NFL record-setting quarterback, Drew Brees, was not on the list. Should he have been included? Here are two different views on the subject.

    Brees has had an impressive career, but when you look at all the QBs in the history of the NFL, he just falls short on this list, in my opinion.

    Seems about right to leave him off the list compared to the other qbs on the list.
