5087 And Counting

((HT: ESPN/NFL/TheFoundationOfCats))

There was talk about the differences between the league averages and what Dan Marino and Drew Brees averaged in their record-breaking seasons...

When Marino threw for 5,084 yards in 1984, his difference was in the neighborhood of 88 yards per game per week higher than his peers. Brees averaged 100 yards more in this year- with one week to play.

Brees is averaging 340 yards a game this year, and after his TD pass to Robert Meacham, everyone in the building ((Brees' linemen included)) knoew he needed 31 yards to break the 27-year-old mark.

Here's the record breaker with Brees and Sproles...
Jocularity ensues...

Oh, the Saints beat the Falcons 45-16 to clinch the NFC South title. But there is some work to do for both teams. The Saints can clinch the 2-seed with a win over Carolina and a 49ers loss. The Falcons, who once again proved that they're having issues in important situations, need to beat Tampa in order to clinch the 5th-seed ((or the 6th-seed depending on other outcomes)).

And there are only 16 games left in the regular season- Brees and his buddies may play until the game is in hand for on more week.

Look for something in the neighborhood of 5,300 yards by the end of week 16.

Congrats to the new boss...
