Brees gets snubbed



This offseason has been gruelingly boring with the exception of the signing of Alex Brown. (Nice move) But I was watching the Superbowl again.. For about the 12th time, and I noticed something I hadn't before.

In the fourth quarter they showed some stat sheet on the screen and it said Brees had 30 completions, which was two away from tying the record that Tom "crybaby" Brady owns. Right after they showed the stats, Brees threw a quick pass to David Thomas, 31 completions. A couple of plays later, Brees threw the touchdown pass to Shockey, 32 completions, which tied the record.

We all know how it goes, but the Saints went for the 2pt conversion. It was a Brees pass to Lance Moore. Shouldn't that have been 33? Why wouldn't a two point conversion count as a completed pass? A fake field goal or punt counts as passing or rushing yards (which ever trick play is called)

I figured that theres nothing else to talk about this offseason, so why not stir the pot?
