    So Brees' record ends at 54 games huh? Brady needs 11 to tie and 12 to pass. Pretty cool. I'd like to see more Lombardi trophies before any individual records though, and I'm sure Brady feels the same.

    I just hope that if it happens at home, they don't stop the game and do a little celebration. God, that was embarrassing.

    Gee...that got me to thinking. I wonder if one of Drew Brees' four or five year old children will be in attendance, like Johnny U's son was at the record breaker in the Dome? :rolleyes: Or maybe the NFL could schedule the game during NO's Bye week so Brees can witness the feat. :)

    This is one of the few personal and team records for which I'd stop a game. It's really an amazing accomplishment.

    Don't get me wrong; I'm sure Brady would trade it for another ring, but it's extraordinary nonetheless to hold it. Not many NFL records stand for over half a century, as did Unitas' original record.

    Unitas' record is far more impressive though. These days a QB doesn't throw a TD he had a bad game.

    Amen.

    In a tight, low scoring game, dude throws 50 times when his lead back is averaging 5 yds per carry. After the 4th INT, one would think that getting the W would be the most important aspect.

    Head scratching, ain't it?

    These facts should be more widely known. I posted it at profootballtalk, but the post got deleted.

    The real record is 43, and it goes down this weekend.

    who the hell cares about this stupid streak? i know brady dont. if he has 15 red-zone chances and 5-6 DB's on the goal-line he is giving all 15 balls to the RB. Brady is NOT that kind of QB.

    i dont get the idea that everybody is hyped up from this streak, its useless and furthermore meanningless. i'd be really disappointed from brady if he will throw 50 (!!) passes in a game to be a leader of a streak that means SHIZ.

    So if we go 8-0 to finish off the rest of this year, then go 19-0 six years in a row, he'd only be six games short.

    Dang, that's a lot of wins.

    Does that include postseason?

    I don't know if it's Brees or the coaching but I didn't get that at all. The Saints running game was tearing them up and they just kept chucking it. They were only down 7 at one point, it was ridiculous.

    As a side story to the egg-throwing incident,

    Drew Brees was throwing eggs back at the Atlanta airport workers, however his aim was way off on all of the eggs that he threw. He kept trying, however, when he was told that he was approaching an egg-throwing record.

    ;)

    Honestly, THAT defines Drew Brees and the record more than anything else (even the fact about him playing more than half of his games in domes every year).

    Well, that's Drew Brees for ya. Have you ever seen Brady or Manning keep throwing the ball all over the place when they are gashing the opponent running the football? Those guys don't care what the offense does, as long as it's moving the ball. Brees seemingly has this overwhelming desire to be the main reason for any success the Saints have on offense.
