Drew Brees Receives Praise From Dan Marino, Sets NFL Passing Record

Brees Sets NFL Passing Record

In 1984 Dan Marino set the NFL single season passing record throwing for 5,084 yards. The record that has stood strong for nearly 3 decades is now held by a new man Drew Brees, and he’s more than deserving of it. It couldn’t have been scripted any better. There was less than 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter of Monday Night Football during the tail end of a Holiday Weekend! The playoff implications? Win, and your team clinches home field advantage for as far as the Saints can go (until the Superbowl). Although the game was already in hand and the Saints may have been thinking playoffs, what better way to celebrate setting the new record than throwing a touchdown pass to Darren Sproles?!

There have been GREAT quarterbacks to play the game during and after Marino set the record. Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, John Elway, Kurt Warner, Steve Young, Brett Favre & Peyton Manning are all one the list of Top 25 Quarterbacks of ALL TIME, and have never surpassed Marino’s record! In 2011, the year of the Quarterback returned… 4-fold. Going into the 14th week of the NFL season,
Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Drew Brees & Aaron Rodgers were all in the hunt to break the record.
For those that don’t know the game of American Football, there are 16 regular season games.
Between the years of 2003 – 2007, the average QB threw for 206 yards per game.
To tie Dan Marino’s record, a QB would have to average 317.75 yards per game.
This year Brees was on FIRE averaging a whopping 336 yards per game.
With 1 game left in the regular season, Brees can extend on his NFL record 5087 passing yards!
