Drew Brees proving his critics dead wrong

An NFL-leading 4,870 passing yards on top of 32 touchdowns and a 101 passer rating, to me, shows no signs of regression.  That’s what Drew Brees did in 2015, despite all the criticism from fans and media across the country who said he was ‘declining.’

Brees, again, was the Black and Gold’s most valuable player for the ‘umpteenth’ time.  Distributing the ball to 14 different targets through the air, he continued to showcase his uncanny ability to make everybody around him better.

After 2015, he remains fourth all-time in passing yards (69,903), moved up to third all-time in touchdowns (428), is first all-time in passing yards per game (280.7), and passed Peyton Manning for most career 300-yard passing games in the regular season (96).  Not to mention, he’s now tied for most touchdown passes in a single game with seven.

Regardless of the season’s outcome, Drew Brees still did his thing.  He threw long-balls, he threw touchdowns, he kept the interceptions to a Saints-career low, and he broke records.  He played exceptionally well in 2015 and will do everything in his power to continue his NFL dominance next year in hopes of leading his New Orleans Saints back into the playoff picture.
