Throwing a single TD a bunch of games in a row just doesn't seem that impressive...especially with the amount of attempts(that's not really important though, I wouldn't care either way)


Its clearly not easy, as no one had equaled it in 52 years...

I know there's a lot of hate for Drew on the forums these days, but he broke a record belonging to a guy who's widely acknowledged as the best to ever play the position. Its definitely a noteworthy accomplishment.

I don't know, it's a total whatever record for me. I'll remember him much more for the 5500 yard season and for throwing for 5000 yards twice, among other things, much more so than this.

If its so unimpressive then why hasnt it already been broken? Not thar I believe its the opposite either, but its certainly believe its much more impressive than the haters would have you believe.

It's not that it's unimpressive, it's just I really don't care.

Snow actually isn't that bad to play in, especially if it isn't windy and just below freezing.

Probably because it's not important to other QB's/Coaches honestly. Down by 17 (31-14) against the Rams with :06 seconds left? You take a knee there.

Unless of course you're stat padding. Then you go for it!

http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/playbyplay?gameId=311030014&period=4

20 passes in a row in the final 3 drives... including a Pick6.

No offense but I'm not impressed. I wouldn't care if a Vikings QB had done it.

At the eight yard line?

I don't think so.

Blasphemy!

They needed to score fast. They didn't run the ball at all.

I've never seen like that!

i think ive seen a team kneel while down at the end of the game once...maybe....99 out of a 100 times the team goes for the score there.

How impressive is it really? We obviously play in a much more passer friendly era than Unitas did and when they did a comparison on tv, it appeared from what they showed that Unitas' numbers were much more impressive even without accounting for era differential.

This was not my research but that of another poster on another forum. Found it incredibly telling.

Brees last 48 games:
-33 dome games
-15 outdoors games
-9 outdoors games with 70+ degrees
-3 games in the 30s
-0 games below 32 degrees


And just because I'm a Patriots fan- Bradys current streak is 37 games and that's while playing in outdoor venues a minimum of 11 games a season outdoors.

And yes this is relevant because the splits between Brees' career indoors and outdoors are night and day. On turf vs on grass is even worse IIRC.


Come on man...I agree that the record isn't anything that great nowadays, but that doesn't mean you gotta bring Brady into it.

He's 10 games behind, and its a meaningless record anyway....I feel like a big reason so many people argue against Brady's accomplishments and such is because of posts like this.

There was absolutely no need to bring Brady up...none.

It's just sad. Having a future HOFer isn't enough. Having 3 SB's in the last decade isn't enough. The playoffs almost every year of the millennium isn't enough.

And at the end of the day, you hear: "Why doesn't anyone like us?!?!?!?"


(not a shot at the whole fanbase btw)


Yes, cause I forgot the Patriots were the only team with fans like that....EVERY team that has had a lot of success, or even one very successful player, has the same SMALL AMOUNT of fans that have to make sure that everyone knows about their favorite player/team, and that thinks everyone must agree with them at just how great said player/team is.

Not just Pats, look at every team that has a big name QB, won the SB, and/or had any type of elite talent on their team, and you will find the same thing.
