"THE" Record quick thoughts from ESPN

Drew Brees set the NFL record for yards passing in a season, breaking a mark that Dan Marino had held since 1984, and the New Orleans Saints clinched the NFC South title with a 45-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.

Brees threw for 307 yards and four touchdown passes, the last a 9-yard strike to Darren Sproles that set the record with 2:51 to go.




It was Brees' final pass of the game and it gave him 5,087 yards passing -- with one game still to play. As Sproles spiked the ball, Brees put his arm over his head and started walking toward midfield while the Superdome crowd went wild and his teammates chased him down.

I'll see you in Hell Candy Boys!!!

I was getting crunk and not really watching, but if my friend was correct, it was Graham who chased and scooped up the ball after Sproles spiked it, and handed it back to Drew. The whole scene was incredible

Thank God Hebert never did anything like Brees did.

The league would have had to bring in the Swamp People to translate!!

Wonder if Bush realized he would have been the one to break the record with Brees?

Congratulations Drew! Now I'm waiting for Brees to tie Johnny Unitis' record in the Superbowl, and break it during the first game of the season next year against the Packers.

I don't think playoff games count... perhaps I am wrong.... I think the clincher will come in game 5 next year..... thinking MNF against.............

Yep. That is accurate. Graham apparently made a heck of a play on the high-bounce spike to keep the ball from going into the stands.
