It doesn't get much better than this...
Drew Brees is everything you want in a quarterback. He's humble, dedicated, and has one of the best arms in NFL history. He's truly the ideal face of any franchise. He was drafted in with the 32nd pick in the NFL Draft in 2001 by the then San Diego Chargers. That was a draft class that featured players such as Ladanian Tomlinson, Michael Vick, and Reggie Wayne. However, it is the kid from Purdue that is still out on the field and breaking records.
On Monday Night Football, with everybody watching Brees, he played one of the best games of his career, against the team he beat in the Super Bowl nearly ten years ago, the Indianapolis Colts. He completed 29 passes of his 30 attempted, which set the highest completion percentage (on over twenty passes) in NFL history. However, this wasn't the record everybody was talking about last night. It was in the third quarter when Brees found tight end Josh Hill, which gave him 540 career passing touchdowns, a new NFL record was previously held by Peyton Manning.
Brees ran over to the sideline to celebrate with his coach, Sean Payton. They held a moment together that they will never forget throughout both of their storied careers.
The game was dominated by the Saints, and it was them improve to 11-3. Meanwhile, the Colts fell to 6-8 on the season. This means the NFC playoff picture currently sees four 11-3 teams, the Saints, Packers, 49'ers, and Seahawks, with Minnesota sitting just behind them all at 10-4.
This will be a game forever remembered by Brees, however he needs to keep on throwing the ball like he is if he wants to keep his record as Tom Brady sits behind him at the 538 mark.
