Re: Brees Has 4000 Yards After Bears Game

much of it in garbage time.

Real passing yardage is significantly less.

Thank you for pissing on one of the few bright spots of the season. Maybe now you can tell the kids there is no Santa.

When are you going to apply for playing Santa at a children's hospital. Your joy and optimism seems boundless.

Considering garbage time started at kickoff, that's good enough for me.

I see they let you out of panty-land....

Re: Brees Has 4000 Yards After Bears Game

Plus Brees now has 34 straight games with a TD, since Manning failed to score last week

He's the only player close to his original record of 54 games.

The only QB with at least 70% completion rate.

The only QB with more than 400 completions.

Tied for 22nd in sacks - this number I love. Drew's pocket presence is so underrated.

Last night and Pittsburgh were both actually two of the best looking games he's had in years. Measuring not just in stats or numbers but in the measurement of Drew LOOKING SCARY GOOD out there. He is really on a roll.

Which is something he used to struggle with quite a bit

On road games, Brees used to look constantly rattled all the time

2 of his best games this season have come outside, on the road in December

Now we have to focus on winning at home.

He looked great, can we stop talking about lack of arm strength and replacing him now?
