When Brees breaks Marino's record, is an asterisk warranted?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Settle down people. The fool that wrote this had nothing more in mind than stirring up this kind of BS. The best way to respond is not to respond. Then this idiot can go back to (a) writing something meaningful ...

No. Leagues change. That's just the way it is. What Brees is about to do doesn't take anything away from what Marino did. They are both incredible accomplishments. Hell, you'd have to put an asterisk next to every record in every sport.

Yeah. Put an asterisk against EVERY sporting record - better physiological science, better medics, better this, better that.

But heck when I last looked there were a couple of QBs who weren't getting anywhere close to a record.

Oh please. There should be an asterix next to Marino's record, too, since he benefitted from 1979-79 rule changes that outlawed contact with a receiver past five yards of the line of scrimmage, the rule change that prohibited crackback blocks on receivers; and the rule that instructed officials to quickly whistle a play dead when a quarterback was clearly in the grasp of a tackler. Advantages which dudes like Unitas, Kenny Stabler, Y.A. Tittle and Fran Tarkenton never had. In Unitas' day you could do anything you wanted to the receiver after 5 yards, including knock him down, as long as the ball wasn't in the air to him.

Yes there will be an asterisk next to the Brees record.

*Brees threw for more yards in fewer games.

Suck it!
