Drew Brees
#1
Threw 4 TD passes (rushed for a 5th) to join Peyton Manning and Brett Favre as the only QB's to have 9 30 passing TD seasons.


Brees has also done it consecutively, which the other 2 didn't.



Such an amazing career he's had, will be sad when it's over in 2-3-4 years.

Always been one of my favs. Was sooo happy when he won the big one in 2010. I also remember when San Diego bailed on him I thought that was a bit of a raw deal for him.

11th straight season with 4000 yards passing now. Nobody else has ever done it more than 6 straight.


Also became just 3rd QB to throw for 65,000 career passing yards.

4 TD passes again yesterday, 21st time in his career, tying Tom Brady for most all-time.

He should hold the all time yard record assuming he can put in at least one more 4000 yard season and come back for one more season after that. Still going strong, so good chance imo.

The TD record will probably require 3 solid seasons

Yeah he should be 70-75 TD's from the record by season end.


Roughly 6000 yards by seasons end as well.


He's 441 yards from his 5th 5000 yard season. It's only been done 9 times, and no one else has done it twice (Marino, Brady, Stafford, and Peyton Manning). Cousins and Ryan have outside shots at it this year.

Brees finishes with 5208 yards on the season (4th highest total of all-time), the 5th time in 6 years he's led the league (2nd the other year). Ryan and Cousins both fell short of the 5000 yard mark, so Brees is responsible for 5 of the 9 times 5000 yards has been accomplished.



Brees is now 5829 yards, and 74 TD's short of Manning.

I like Brees as a QB but he has two big things going for him;
1) playing a minimum 9 games per year in a dome with perfect conditions will always aid the stats.
2) The Saints throw the ball a lot! ( he has averaged over 40 attempts per game for all 11 years he has played with them thanks to having a former QB as coach for)

This year both he and Matt Ryan have great stats aided by the fact of playing most of their games in a dome and having no cold weather/ snow games. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady would love those conditions.

That's true, and probably a factor to some degree, but he had a history of setting records and throwing the ball a lot well before his New Orleans/Payton days. He did it in Central Indiana playing in the Big 10 too.

I'll post this here, although maybe I shouldn't.
The top 15 QBs All Time from the Washington Times:

Brees isn't in there, although he certainly out classes a few.
Bradshaw??? Grin He was Jim Plunkett with a better team.

The Chargers chose Philip Rivers over Drew Brees. Brees has a Super Bowl ring. Philip Rivers is still looking for one. Wink

Yeah leaving Brees off is insane. He's easily better than half the list.

An article on how much the Saints defence has really cost the team the last 3 years. Brees has 10 more wins with even a league average defence. Meanwhile Stafford is the anti-Brees. 8 wins because of the defence.

Matthew Stafford is so overrated and he's getting paid $27 million per season.

When it comes to opponents:
- who finished above .500 he is 5-46
- who finished below .500 he is 12-46

He's also 0-3 in the playoffs. One of the opposing QB's was a back Drew Stanton

These aren't exactly stellar stats.

I don't think Stafford is amazing by any means, but he's only getting $27 million per season, because that's the nature of the beast. The next above average QB up for a contract is going to make just as much if not more. 

I also think that his playoff success has a lot to do with coaching. Jim Bob Cooter seems like a really good fit for that offence, but who have his head coaches been? Jim Schwartz, who is primarily a defensive guy, and Jim Caldwell, who only has a job because Peyton Manning was his QB on a Superbowl winning team.

I do think Stafford has critics to answer to, but I also don't think that the Lions inability to beat good teams is squarely on his shoulders. I would personally probably rank him as being around the 10th best QB in the league, give or take a couple spots.

Brees is now 860 yards away from 70,000 yards passing. He'd be only the 3rd QB to do that. 2801 yards from becoming the all-time leading passer.


Assuming he remains healthy, he will be numero uno, before the halfway point of next season.


Nobody is talking about this, and it bugs me lol

Thats awesome.  I think he's a far better QB than Favre, and I'll be glad to see him hold the record instead.  And the receivers he's had have been mostly far less in quality than what Favre had to work with.

Peyton Manning actually got Favre barely at the end. 102 yards up on Favre. But I agree, Brees and Favre may be my 2 Fav QB's, but I'm taking Brees everyday over Favre.

Ends the year 1496 yards away from Mannings record. Would think if he's healthy, he'll break the record somewhere around Weeks 5-7 next season.


Is the fastest of the 3 QB's to reach 70,000 yards, 248 games. Took Favre 293 games and Manning 258 games.


He's also I believe a free agent at the end of the season, but I can't see him leaving the Saints. Will turn 39 on Jan 15th. Hopefully he's still in the playoffs then lol.



For comparisons sake to Brady, Brady is still 3841 yards from 70,000, 4286 yards behind Brees, and has played 4 more games than Brees has.


Also, somehow Eli Manning on Christmas Eve passed John Elway for 6th on the all-time passing yards leaderboard as well. Roughly 10,000 yards behind Marino for 5th.
