    OT: Brees Now #1 All-Time in Passing Yardage

    Good guy and great QB. I'm so happy that he passed up Peyton.

    Ya very good moment but I wish they stop talking about being 5'10'' like it is some handicap, I'm 5'10'' it's really not that bad.

    Because of the many rule changes to help out the offenses todayís NFL QBís are basically playing the game on a 9 foot rim. Thatís why these kinds of accomplishments donít really seem all that impressive anymore.

    A shout out to Mel Blount does seem necessary.

    I agree that when you change rules to open up the offense, hamstring the defense and make it so QB's can play until they're 50 - you're likely to see a lot of these records broken.

    But Brees isn't responsible for that. He's a good dude and an awesome QB.

    9 times a QB has thrown for over 5000 yards in a season. Brees has done it 5 of the 9 times. That's insane.

    Would have loved to see him in today's game, I don't know if he would have been able to adjust to today's game. He was a fantastic athlete though.

    Nothing wrong with being 5'10' in real life, but it's a huge handicap for an NFL QB that he has to overcome, making Brees' accomplishment that much more impressive.

    At 5'10" he's 7 inches shorter than the average NFL lineman. He's gotta be able to see over those guys and find throwing lanes over those guys. Any QB not ~6"5" is at a disadvantage. Doesn't make the job impossible. Just that much harder.

    The one positive he has going for him is I think he's significantly taller than Russell Wilson

    Drew Brees is amazing! I have always liked that guy because he seems so humble and personable. You can tell he really loves and respects the game, as he has worked very hard to put himself in this position! As far as his height, that really is amazing when you think about it - I mean, the scouts pretty much rule out if your not at least 6'2" or 6'3". It just goes to show that heart will prevail over almost anything!

    I'm with you Willer. Real nice, genuine guy that you can't help but like. I"m glad for him. He's a real QB no matter the height.
