As you have no doubt heard, last night against the Colts, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees put on a freaking SHOW. In an absolutely unforgettable performance, (29/30, 307 yards, 4TDs, 0 INTs), not only did Drew set the all-time record for passing TDs, surpassing both Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, but he also set an NFL record for passing completion percentage, at 96.7%.
As far as regular season stats go, Drew Brees is:
#1 in passing yards, all-time.
#2, #4, #5, #6 and #10 in passing yards, single season.
#1 in passing TDs, all-time.
#6 and #9 in passing TDs, single season.
#1 completion percentage, all-time.
#1 in completion percentage, single game.
#1, #2, #3, #6 and #7 in completion percentage, single season.
This post isn't to debate whether or not Brees' accomplishments make him the true GOAT or not, it's not about whether he is overall a better QB than Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Joe Montana or anyone else, it's simply a recognition that you know what? Drew Brees is a pretty damn good Quarterback. Whether he is the GOAT or not doesn't really matter. He is a guaranteed Hall of Famer, and will always be one of the greatest players the NFL has ever witnessed.
