Terry Bradshaw didnít like how Drew Brees celebrated his record-breaking TD
 
Drew Brees threw a touchdown pass for the 48th straight game on Sunday night against the San Diego Chargers, and his New Orleans Saints triumphed in front of their beloved, persecuted, suspended head coach Sean Payton. It was an evening of joy for the Saints and their loyal fans.
Terry Bradshaw hated it. The Fox analyst and four-time Super Bowl champion said on New York's WFAN that he didn't care for the way Drew Brees orchestrated the evening, and wasn't even that impressed with the record itself.

"I was a little upset that he went to the NFL to get Payton and everybody back to watch him break a record," Bradshaw said. "I'm like, 'Are you kidding me?' I never would have gone and asked for them back Ö I thought it was disrespectful to the San Diego Chargers Ö So break it, go ahead. Hell, you're throwing it 50 times a game Ö I'm just against stuff like that. I just don't believe in doing stuff like that."

I hadn't really considered that, but I guess in a certain light, there is a degree of selfishness to it. Brees was breaking an individual record, and asked the league to make a concession so that Payton (along with Joe Vitt and Mickey Loomis) could be on hand to see him take down the record. All of this for an individual accomplishment.

So maybe that's a little self-centered on Brees' part, but on the other hand, it's not like there was some huge spectacle that took away from the game, either. There was an announcement in the stadium, and that was pretty much it. The extra point wasn't delayed, there was no break in the action, and there was nothing that should've affected the opposing Chargers.
Even if you agree with Bradshaw and believe Brees was a little too focused on celebrating an individual achievement, if there was nothing that showed up the opposition, where's the harm?

It wasn't just Brees' actions Bradshaw didn't like, though. The record itself doesn't impress him much.

"I'm not much on that stuff Ö I'm not into records, fellas. I'm just into winning football games. [The Saints] hadn't won a game Ö I'm not into records, I'm into winning Super Bowls Ö These things aren't important. We lose sight of why we play. We play to win and to win championships, not to break records."

Spoken like a guy who won a lot of championships but never had tremendous individual statistics. I'm not going to criticize either guy here. They're both great quarterbacks, but very different quarterbacks, too. I won't fault Drew Brees for wanting people important to him to see him break a record that he apparently valued. If that's not Terry Bradshaw's style, that's OK, too.

It seems like Brees is always going to get criticized no matter what he does and how much he wins. Somebody is always going to be bitter about it in some kinda way......its a shame really. I don't feel he was being selfish at all. If he was being selfish he would have got the record and not cared about winning the game. He's always had to work twice as hard to prove he's as good/ if not better than Brady and Manning. But its people like Bradshaw that find ways to hate on his achievements and abilities. Sucks...

Brees said it best. He doesn't consider it an individual record. He says it's a team record.

Maybe Bradshaw should take his own advice and realize that people don't always march to the beat of the same drum and keep his mouth shut instead of trying to call Drew out. I don't even get why he would say anything, Brees said it was a team record and wanted the coach who brought him into the limelight as an elite qb there, if the nfl is willing to allow Greg Williams to attend rams games, why the **** not let Payton attend!

IDK, this wasn't your normal, everyday breaking of an NFL record, this was breaking one of the great, long standing records in all of sports. I think Drew was entitled.

Bad form Terry.

Here's the funny thing. The sports media is what hyped this record up more than anything, yet a member of their own media lashes out against it. Sure, Terry won four Super Bowl rings. Yes, he was a great QB. Yes, he is a HOF'er. However, it has been 30 years since he has stepped on the field. He is one of those media types now. There are always going to be critics, but blame your media colleagues, Bradshaw. Not Drew Brees.

Save asking for the banned to be able to come to the game, Brees celebrated just like any other qb in his situation would've done. It's really not his fault that some of the people who helped him reach the goal are not allowed to breathe the same air he is. He and Payton are so linked, of course he wanted him to be there.

It's not like Brees did a Superman dance, burned a Unitas picture, spiked the ball at midfield, and flipped off Rivers while screaming, "All your base are belong to us!" as loud as he could.

Get a grip Bradshaw.

And would he have had an opportunity to break the record without Payton's play calling.
