Drew Brees is now the all-time leading yardage passer in the NFL after throwing for 363 yards in the Saints 43-19 Monday Night Football blowout of the Washington Redskins. Brees set the record in dramatic fashion passing Peyton Manning’s mark of 71,940 yards with a 62-yard touchdown strike to Tre’Quan Smith, midway through the second quarter. Brees actually started the night in third place, also passing Brett Favre who was second with 71,838 passing yard.
Originally drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the second round back in 2001, Brees has spent the majority of his 18-year career in New Orleans where he has become a major part of the community. Even at age 39, Brees is still one of the league’s elit quarterbacks and has the chance to put some real distance between himself and Manning in an offense conducive to the pass, a solid running game, a good offensive line, a history of basically being able to remain injury free.
