Each week I bring you the good, bad, and ugly from Saints games; on a day where Drew Brees shattered a monumental NFL record I threw in another category, great!  There is no other way to describe quarterback Drew Brees. 

Great: 

Look up the word in the dictionary and you might see Drew Brees pictured next to the definition.  Brees was surgical against the Redskins going 26 of 29, passing for 363 yards and 3 touchdowns, and yet another game without an interception.  

Drew has many nicknames or monikers, but for me he’s “Prime Time Drew.” Drew simply rises to the occasion and shines on the biggest stage.  Not only did he break the all-time passing yardage record against the Redskins, Brees showed the world what an under sized quarterback can accomplish with determination.  His performance and the record he set will live on forever.  I’m thankful I was there to witness his hard work & perseverance pay off.  

Good:  

The Saints defense was nothing but a force to be reckoned with.  They forced two turnovers and held the Washington Redskins to just 39 yards rushing and less than 300 yards of total offense along with 19 points surrendered.  Did I mention most of it was done without the Saints best cover man, Marshon Lattimore, who left the game with a concussion?  All of a sudden the Saints defense is revving up to impact Saints victories.  

Ugly:

The Redskins defense entered this matchup hot, giving up just 14 points a game.  The Saints and Drew Brees carved the Redskins up.  New Orleans tallied over 400 yards of offense, averaged over 7.1 yards a play and racked up 43 points.  What’s more?  The Saints didn’t punt the entire game.  That’s how you know you’re really rolling on offense. 

The Saints are 4 and 1, five games into the season and atop the NFC South.  The Black & Gold are off this week, and enter a brutal stretch of the schedule with two straight road games against Baltimore and Minnesota.  We have plenty of time to talk about the Ravens and Vikings.  In the meantime, let’s enjoy what we saw Monday night.  Drew Brees made history earning the crown as the NFL’s all-time leading passer, and a game the Saints dominated from start to finish! 

WHO DAT!
