Drew Brees Makes History Passing Dan Marion’s Record

Drew Brees recently surpassed Dan Marino’s NFL record for yards passing in a season, which had previously held up strong for 27 years.  He broke it on a Monday Night Football game in which his New Orleans Saints defeated the Atlanta Falcons 45-16.  Marino praised the quarterback in a tweet complimenting, “Great job by such a special player.”  It is admirable that after the game, Drew Brees remained humble and only pressed the issue that football is a team game and the record could never have been broken if it wasn’t for his teammates.  He is quoted saying, “This record isn’t about one person.  There might be just one name that goes in ledger under the record, but it’s really about the team.  I want everyone to feel a huge part of this, the record would not have been possible with out them.”
