I know it's petty, but casually watching the MNF game and sports news the highlights of the game was of course panther lowlights. And to boot all they talk about is Cam's adolescent behavior as usual after the game.

Meanwhile, the man who's shoes the reigning "MVP" aren't fit to tie, owns another NFL record and no mention at all. At ALL. What a crock....he continues to be the most under appreciated player in the league. The man probably is the best to lace them up at the position by the time he decides to hang it up. It just makes me sick /rant over

If Cooks set a record for the first player in NFL history to catch 2 TDs over 85 yards within the first 5 games of a season......Shouldn't Drew own the same record as the first QB to throw 2 TDs over 85 yards within the first 5 games of a season?

Another QB could have done it before now, just to different receivers.

You think that's bad? Just wait 'til he's passed over in his first year of HoF eligibility, because you know those idiots will find a way to do that. :rant:

Remember when Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady were the consensus best QBs in the league with Drew usually being honorable mention. Well, Brady is in an excellent system and has the luxury of a good to great defense every season, but, obviously, he deserves ultimate respect. But Drew has easily surpassed what Rodgers has done, and has done it with miserable defenses except for a few seasons, yet he still only gets mentioned as an afterthought when it comes to lists of great QBs in the league today. We'll now be hearing how Dak Prescott is a better QB than Brees. In fact, most pundits will say Brees isn't even the best QB in his division, as they will once again give that nod to Matt Ryan, who is good but has his limitations (as we well know).

I think the thing unfortunately missing for Drew is that elusive second Super Bowl ring. It shouldn't come down to that, but that's what would have gotten the media to respect Drew's greatness at a higher level.

I am still sick about that 2011 season. That was going to be the one that put him in the place to firmly be called "The Greatest of All-Time."

Two titles along with all of those records - there would have been no argument whatsoever.

Winning one Super Bowl gets you media/perception respect for sure, but winning two or at least getting to multiple, it immortalizes you as a legend.

I actually thought about that during the game on Sunday. I would be livid.

Brees is awesome.

If you want the media to give him more love, here are the records that need to change:

7-9
7-9
2-3

Until then, all we're going to hear about is "IS DAK PRESCOTT TEH NEW BRADY" and the twilight years of the greatest player in franchise history are wasted. QBs get more love for winning.
