this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Definitely no asterisk. Players - Brees or Marino - aren't responsible for the conditions or rules they play under. Yes you can make an argument that Marino's number is more impressive because he didn't have the QB-friendly rules or all ...

Definitely no asterisk. Players - Brees or Marino - aren't responsible for the conditions or rules they play under.

Yes you can make an argument that Marino's number is more impressive because he didn't have the QB-friendly rules or all the weapons Brees has. But records are records. Asterisks are for scandals or major cases of cheating. If anything is still unique about Marino's record, it was how young he was when he achieved it.

You do have a Like button if your cursor is on the BnG screen. (Or you have a "No Script" program and you haven't released gravity.com or similar)
So go back and give him the Like.
You know it makes sense.
