Brees Makes History in Loss
New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has been one of the most consistant and fun to watch players of the last decade or so. He added to his future Hall of Fame resume last night on Monday Night Football in the Saints 35-27 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Brees joined Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, and Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for over 60,000 yards in his career. He achieved this feat early in the second quarter before injuring his ankle, which he will receive x-rays on today.
Brees has clearly solidified himself as a Hall of Famer, even prior to this feat. He has a ring and records to go along with it. Brees is the all-time leader in completion percentage, has four 5,000 yard seasons, and has an NFL record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass with 54. Definitely the statistics of a sure fire Hall of Famer.
