15 big-name players, including some surprises, who have caught passes from Drew Brees
09 October, 2018, 13:43
Brees, 39, needed 201 yards to overtake Manning (71,940) and did so in the second quarter when he found Tre'Quan Smith for a 62-yard touchdown.
Of course, the prolific passer has sometimes been underrated when compared to his peers like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. But Brees has slung the football around with the best of them. Not to mention, recent retirees such as Peyton Manning and Brett Favre. And barring the impossible, they'll be in for a special moment when he breaks the record on Monday.
"I knew we were within striking distance" of the record, Brees said.
New Orleans will be without one of its leading pass catchers in Ted Ginn Jr., who missed practice all week with a knee injury that has limited his action in earlier weeks. From the "Aints" to suffering through the catastrophic Hurricane Katrina, there's been despair and worse.
With the game in hand, Payton subbed Brees off the field after the two-minute warning so the quarterback could have one more interaction with the appreciative crowd.
Drew Brees said back in 2006, Saints head coach Sean Payton took a chance on him, and he is grateful. But he admits that the record will be on everyone's minds. "But you always say that it's just more special when you win. I still feel like there's work to be done". It's great that a second-year guy did this; there needs to be a lot more of it from everyone in the organization, from coaches on down. Former Saints receiver Devery Henderson, who caught the pass on which Brees broke Unitas' mark, attended Monday night's game. And while Brees has easily thrown for over 200 yards in all four of the Saints' games this year, the Redskins' defense is ranked No. 1 both overall and against the pass, so they should give the star quarterback some trouble.
