NFL Football: Drew Brees on the Cusp of Another Record

Could Brees go down as the best Pro Passer of All-Time?

Drew Brees is on the cusp of another NFL record, again.

The prolific passer has dominated over his 17 year career, 5 years in San Diego and another 12 in New Orleans, where he has been the face of the franchise.

He has had more 5,000 passing yard seasons than any other quarterback of all time. He has won a super bowl. What else is there to do?

Break Peyton Manning’s record.

Currently, Brees sits at 70,445 passing yards for his career. Going into his 18th season, unless something happens, he should break that record by about 1,500-2,500 yards depending on his production. I would assume closer to the 2,500 yard mark.

Brees, the man who was too short to be a first round pick, will soon be the leader of all time passing yards in NFL History.

As if we needed more reassurance, Drew Brees will go down as a top 5 quarterback of all-time. He should be a first ballot hall of famer. The best thing that happened in his career was San Diego writing him off for Phillip Rivers.

Brees and Sean Payton have dominated side by side. I am looking forward to at least two more years of Drew Brees in the league, as he just signed a 2 year 50 million dollar deal.

Keep being awesome, Drew! Boiler Up!
