Darren Sproles is no longer on pace to set the mark for combined yards by a running back and he can thank his teammates on returns. There are continuing problems with return blocking that needs to be fixed and watch the holding guys. BTW he is 3 yards off the pace.
Jimmy Graham is on pace for 98 receptions for 1355 yards, which would break the yardage mark of 1290, held by Kellen Winslow, but short of the 102 catches by Tony Gonzales. He has already passed 1100 yards this season with 3 games left. He also has 80 reception.
Drew Brees has 385 - 543 for 4,369 yards, He is on pace for 474 - 668 for 5, 376 yards. The record of completions in a season is 450 by Peyton Manning, he throws 19 a game, He needs to average 302 yards per game to catch Marino. He now is only the second player to complete a touchdown pass in 40 consecutive games. He also has two records with 7 30-completion games in a season with 3 games to play and 33 consecutive 20 completions games.
Brees continues to have trouble throwing on the move. He missed a wide-open Jimmie Graham in the second quarrell.
