Were Saints right to run up score for Brees' record? - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

Get the distraction out the way. Any coach would have wanted to get it for his player in that situation, in New Orleans on MNF, in front of a national audience, and against their biggest rivals. I'm glad the Falcons players took it well. Heaven forbid if something like Tony Romo happened to Brees, he wouldn't had gotten the chance.

Prisco has a problem

Just read his tweet from last night when Drew Brees broke the record:

Falcons are pissed. But I would have have taken him out. Worth the fine. Worth the penalty.

I'm glad he's the spokesman for the Falcons. Funny how in all the press conferences I've viewed this morning no one from the Falcons have said a word about being pissed.

He's saying that a Falcons player should have hit Brees?

Here's my take - if the Saints really wanted the record from the outset we could've attempted 50+ passes. But it would've put the outcome in jeopardy. I understand going for the record at the end and getting it because it was for the Saints fans and other NFL fans to see it happen on national TV. It might not sit well with some of the Falcons but admittedly it was an unusual circumstance.

What felt a bit strange to me was the celebration of the record after it happened. It was a great moment and Brees and the team are definitely worthy. But the logical part of my brain says that Brees could mathematically throw for -4 yards the next game and lose the record (ain't happening though). We also have to acknowledge Brady could have a monster game and outpace Brees. I personally would feel a little better celebrating the final yardage number Brees posts when the season is over and establishes the new record.

Who cares what the score was all you got to do is stop them and you would'nt have that problems. Talk to you your coach and player for the bad play calling and the mistake they made. This is football lady's and gents you suppose to push guys around and take advantage of them they suck and that's it. Sportsmanship if the New England had the chance they would the samething.

As long as any player wears a New Orleans Saints uniform from the begnning of this frachise to the end of time the only way to get respect is going to have to be earned. Now if this was say, Pretty Boy Rodgers there would be the greatest thing that has ever happened in the NFL. I say bullsh!!, Brees eaned it and did it, he deseves to be #1, no one else has done it!!!!

This isn't an SEC team running it up on Georgia Southern or Furman, this is the NFL; there is no such thing as running it up in professional sports.
Guys have performance bonuses, players are trying to get better contracts, and we all know that half speed=injuries.

Prisco is another 'writer' trying to be the story instead of writing the story

Tweet from Chris Mortensen this morning:

@mortreport
Chris Mortensen
"Most ridiculous & shameful postgame stories I've read regard Falcons or media calling Saints classless for allowing Brees to go for record."

At least intelligent people in the media get it. Most people in the media and around the league echo Mort's sentiments. Prisco is a hack. No professional writer would tweet that they think an opponent should take a personal foul on a player and risk injury.

As for the Falcants players who anonymously said they didn't like what the Saints did, man up. If you're going to talk, put your name next to it. This is the NFL, not Pop Warner football. They're all professionals who are getting paid. If you don't want a team to score on you and break a record, stop them!

There's more. This from yahoo.com's Jason Cole:

Were Saints right to run up score for Brees’ record?


Classy? Not so much, and Payton pretty much admitted that when he said he stretched his ethical standards for this situation.
“Someone is going to ask this question, so I am going to answer it before it’s asked,” Payton said. “Typically, would I be throwing there? … probably not. In fact, the answer is I wouldn’t be. But I thought it was appropriate to get [the record] and we did it.”
