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

Like Marino, Brees is using pinpoint accuracy to shred defenses," Freeman writes. "Unlike Marino, Brees is doing it with liberal rules that leave defenses playing with one hand tied behind their back. In effect, Brees' record will be severely watered down. So much so, that it almost deserves an asterisk."

A statement like that might cause a voodoo spell to be cast upon Freeman down in New Orleans. Outside of The Big Easy, though, and definitely in Miami, some will understand his point of view.

Freeman goes on to write that the 1980s are vastly different than today's NFL, making Marino's record more astonishing.

Yea... but I don't know anybody who actually cares.

Yes.

To Dan Marino's name.

Stating that he passed for these yards against sluggish, inferior 1984 defenses.

Should Jim Brown's rushing achievements have an asterisk since they ran all the time back then?

Dempsey did it with 1/2 a foot. It was so easy to watch Saints all time highlights in 1980.

Di Di Di!!

Yep the game is going to be different in every era & every few years when something new comes along.

So what...?

Is there an asterik next to Brady's TD record?

Asterisks is for baseball.

The game changes... it always has changed. Records fall...

And the seasons will get longer. 18 games are coming soon enough and the records will go down faster.

I think what that punk meant was #1. There will always be doubters.
