Not everyone thrilled by Drew Brees breaking Unitas record

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Brees was asked on NFL AM on the NFL Network about the comments from Bradshaw which he said he hadn’t heard directly.  He stood by his decision to have the suspended trio attend the game citing once again that they were just as much part of breaking the record as he was.

In the end, the only person that can weigh in on this is Johnny Unitas who passed away in 2002.  His son Joe and the Unitas family have expressed their joy and gratitude that it was Brees who was able to break the record and Joe Unitas actually attended the game.

When it’s all said and done, the opinions of analysts don’t mean much since it’s ultimately Brees and the Unitas family who can decide if breaking the record meant something or not.  It’s safe to say that we think we know the answer.

    Funny…I didn’t hear Bradshaw tag Dan Fouts, Dan Marino, or Jim Kelly for not having Super Bowl rings. If I remember right, Drew Brees does have one. And, he carried a team on his arm from the bottom up.

    I guess old Terry’s still miffed that he didn’t get his Farve vs. Manning showdown in 2009. Oh, well…can’t please everyone. #DrewALLDAT

    I know Terry is a huge Saints fan, i do not understand why he is acting like this.

    • Larry James

      Because he is standing beside Roger Goodell, people’s like this is why the Saints was in a bad offseason. Now you see and I hope the New Orleans Saints see if you have people’s from the same neck of the woods you from your state football team and you helping to drag them through the mud you know better than the rest of them. New Orleans Saints keep doing what you doing, don’t worry about know one else. Come off bye-week and continue to win games show the NFL and all the haters that you guys are the team to watch.

    Bradshaw has Super Bowl wins, Brees has the Super Bowl AND the records, I think Terry is just feeling a little less endowed than Brees. :)

    Skip Bayless needs to get a life.He’s so busy having his lips so firmly pressed to the so – called great Tim Tebow & Tom Brady’s rears.People who have never played a sport shouldn’t comment on something they have never done.As for Bradshaw,every analyst on NFL mornings(channel 4 & 8) talks bad about the Saints because we don’t have their football crushes Tom Brady,Ben R.or Aaron Rodgers.Get over it.I just skip over their pregame crap.
