In one massive swoop, Brees set a new NFL passing record for yards in a season, won an NFC South title and sent a very clear message to the Atlanta Falcons, who had been surging lately, that they can’t compete with the Saints right now.

“It couldn’t have happened in any other way,’’ Brees said. “It was perfect.’’

It was perfect because everything was on Brees’ terms in a 45-16 victory against the Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on "Monday Night Football." It was perfect because Brees broke the record Dan Marino set in 1984 by throwing a 9-yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles, a former teammate in San Diego and the running back Brees recruited to New Orleans as a free agent this past summer, in the fourth quarter.

It was perfect because the Saints (12-3 and still in contention for the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs) were so in control of the game that Brees didn’t have to worry about the distraction of chasing a record in a tight game. It was perfect because tight end Jimmy Graham, a former college basketball player, went leaping into action to grab the historic football after Sproles spiked it and it was high in the air and headed for the stands.

Hey, the Rams beat the Saints' right? Stranger things have happened.

Personally, I found it far more gratifying that the Saints' finally played up to their abilities against Atlanta. I said not two days before that I thought the Saints' should beat Atlanta badly, not just skeet by. And finally, they did.
