Marino's Record Breaking New Reason For Falcons To Beat Saints In Future?
Written by 

 drew_brees_jvlastnews_thumbDrew Brees broke Dan Marino’s passing yardage record, but was his late 4th quarter record-breaking fourth-quarter efforts  the straw that could break the Falcons’ back?    Were the Saints piling on in front of a national television audience?

At least one Falcons player told CBS, “No need for that,” one Falcons player told Pete Prisco of CBS. “It came on our watch, but it didn’t have to come that way. We won’t forget it.”

 “That’s just who they are,” the Falcons player told Prisco. “We’ll see them down the road. We won’t forget any of it.”

However, when one thinks about it, the Falcons have plenty to get their back up and their hot-blood flowing.   Atlanta has only one two out of the past twelve games against the Saints.    

The Brees record could be expanded with the upcoming New Orleans Saints’ match against the  Carolina Panthers for the regular-season finale.   Much might depend upon what is occurring in St. Louis as the San Francisco 49’ers have a 12:00 pm CST match against the Rams.  New Orleans and the 49ers are competing for the 2nd seed in the playoffs.  Should the 49’ers win on Sunday, the Saints would be third seed but if they lose, the Saints would have a chance to step up to the 2nd seed with a win against the Panthers.  The second-place finisher in the NFL regular season wins a bye and gets to rest the first week of the playoffs. 

Depending upon how the 49ers fare might determine how long Brees plays next week.  The Saints also starts its match against Carolina at 1:00 pm, so there is no telling how long Brees might be needed in service against the Panthers.

Another consideration could be the passing yardage of one, Tom Brady.   The Patriots’ quarterback 4,897 yards, or 187 yards less than Marino and 189 yards less than Brees.  While 187 yards is a big chunk to make up, theoretically, Brady could end up as the total yardage passing leader.   

We shall see, come Sunday.

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.

    Edwards got some rough treatment from a congressional committee in Washington, D.C. when he testified before it recently about the state’s response to flood problems.
