More NFL offseason: League minicamp dates | Latest news, notes

During the NFL offseason, one of my favorite things to do is look at old pictures of former presidents and see if those former presidents look like any current NFL quarterbacks -- Trust me, it's a great way to burn time. It's also a pretty good way to never make friends again.

More importantly though, it's also a great way to remember presidents that no one talks about anymore, like Rutherford B. Hayes. That's a picture of a younger Hayes on the left at the top of the page, not Drew Brees' twin brother as you probably thought.

Seriously, they look alike, right? If Brees went back in time to 1878, America would be confused because there would be two Hayes'. The Saints would also be confused though because they wouldn't have a quarterback, he'd be in 1878.

Anyway, Brees and Hayes might look alike, but they definitely don't have the same taste in women. Brees married a blonde. Hayes married a brunette.
