Personally, I think if he gets the record, we will not be an elite team. We've got to have a mix of running the ball to keep other teams offenses off the field.

The run is important but...
To set up the pass the run just has to be a threat. I think that with all our weapons on offense that the Saints can win and put up record setting numbers through the air.
The run will turn some of those 3 and outs to a drive that will give Brees more passes and the receivers will have less coverage because the defense will have to guard against the run.
In short a great passing game and a good running game help each other not hurt each other.

I used to think that, but in this offense thats not necessarly true. In this offense the pass opens up the run, we had a lot of carries last year, we just didn't have a healthy yds per carry. If we just get our YPC up, Brees will still get his. He might not get 5,000yds, or 50TD's, but I think if we end up 13-3, Brees will still end up with 4800+ yds, thats just or offense. Especially if this defense can continue to create TO's.

Yeah. I think Drew Brees can get either the TD record or the yardage record and us still have a respectable showing in the run game. But this team will always be a pass first team.
