Brees more to Saints & New Orleans than a single moment
Meeting special people and occasionally witnessing history as it's made are two of the great things about this job. When New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees -- one of the classiest, most competitive and exciting players I've covered in the NFL -- eclipsed Dan Marino's single-season passing record on Monday, I was able to experience both.
It was a great achievement, breaking a record that stood for 27 years. Yet, the moment -- a nine-yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles -- didn't move me as much as Brees' incredible play during the Saints' 2009 Super Bowl run. His leadership skills, his ability to seize games and frustrate defenses and his talent for making magic against opponents that seem to have him smothered are why he's so special.
He's simply taken things to a new level.
