They're already trying to disrepect Brees!

Let me start this off by saying that I'm not a 20 year old kid. I'm a guy who grew up watching football in the 70"s and 80's. I keep hearing about the rules changes and different era, blah, blah, blah and I'm fed up with it. First off, It's not Drew's Fault that he's playing in today's era and not the 80's. I personally think he would've have been just as good then as he is today, but why speculate because we will never know. Besides, I'm sure that there's some 80 or 90 year guys sitting around somewhere saying "those guys in the 70's and 80's had it too good." While another 90 year old is saying "we had it tough in the 50's when you good tackle guys with a sledgehammer!" What we do know is that Drew Brees not only broke the single season passing record, but he is the only person in the history of football with over 5000 passing yards in more than one season and once Tom Brady breaks it (and only say Brady cuz I don't expect Rodgers to break 5k), he will have 2 of the only 4 5K passing seasons in history.

Furthermore, I have been a fan of this team since the beginning! I didn't join the team in the last few years or during the Jim Haslet or Mike Ditka era. The great Dome Patrol didn't bring me to the Saints! I'm a long time fan and if I die at 80 years old just know that I should've been 110 because being pissed at those bad 70's and 80's Saints teams took 30 years off my life. I say this because we true Saints fans deserve this as much as we deserved the Dome Patrol, the Reggie Bush draft, The Superbowl and Drew Brees. Congrats Saints, Drew and Nawlins!
