I like how it's a Washington fan who has figured this out. He was probably researching Kirk Cousin's chances at breaking the existing record, and got trapped in the rabbit hole of Brees' accomplishments.

He'll definitely need to have a 450+ yard explosion here at some point to have a serious shot. I do like that 4 of the last 5 games are indoors, so that will help.

I forgot that Manning was given the record on a review of a lateral. That stinks.

I hope he doesn't get it.
More passing yards usually means our defense isn't holding up.

that game could be the last game against Atlanta. What if the game was for the division. I could see both teams airing it out all game.

If we lose a game between now and then, or we are eliminated from contention, and Drew is like 500 from the record going into week 17, I could see us throwing the ball 50+ times to get it done.

What's amazing is that he could break the single season completion % too. He is on pace for that.

Depends. Ideally we want to make the playoffs. But if we aren't going to make them anyway I'd take some all-time records and a higher draft spot over a meaningless win.

Don't see it happening. Running game is going too well and defense is improving. If that = more wins, as it should, that's fine by me.

He is the greatest statistical QB ever, it's that simple.

The only thing he lacks is that HUGE year of TD's (or very big year w/virtually no INT's)

He will hold all the records when it is over and the most amazing thing (other than the CURRENT lack of MVP) is that he will do it all while having the highest completion %, both single season and career.

Seriously, best batting average ever and the home run king? Imagine how that guy would be revered in baseball history.

Oh, yeah, that's right.

Babe frickin' Ruth.

That's how good Drew Brees is.
