Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints chasing more than Dan Marino's NFL passing record
 
1 Attachment(s)
Well, the chase is on again.

This time, there are four quarterbacks, all of them Super Bowl MVPs, chasing a record hung up 27 years ago by a quarterback who never won a Super Bowl.

Will someone catch Dan Marino and that majestic number he hung up in 1984, which happens to be 5,084?

That's 5,084 passing yards for a regular season, which Marino accomplished as quarterback of the Miami Dolphins.

Three years ago, our town's Drew Brees brought the number back to life when he threw for 5,069 yards for the Saints, the closest anyone has come to the NFL milestone.

Three years later, with 4,368 passing yards behind him, Brees finds himself the lead chaser.

His challenge: Average 239 passing yards in the three remaining regular-season games (Vikings, Falcons, Panthers), and the record is his.

In the first 13 games, Brees has failed to throw for 239 yards only once.

He may have to get 359 the next two if the last game has no playoff implications.

I hope he gets it. I'm sure either way is fine with him. Drew Brees is a great guy all around.

Yeah, that thought occurred to me to.
That means a tight game will keep Brees throwing for even more yards. I still want a solid win.

We'll be in a fight for the #2 seed until the very end, I think...

We might need that last game for seeding purposes, if SF only drops one we have to win out to get the #2 seed.

How far off is it to think, that all three will pass Marino? Not far.... With Brees in first of course!

"chasing a record hung up 27 years ago by a quarterback who never won a Super Bowl"

Think Marino would trade that "record" for a ring?
