Well, tonight, our old friend Breezy broke Dan Marino's single-season passing record, with not a little help from our other old friend Darren Sproles. It's a bit of a bitter pill to watch these two kicking so much ass with the Saints and wonder where we'd be if we kept them (Drew, slightly less so, because pre-meltdown Philip Rivers has been a nice replacement) while our season has completely and utterly collapsed.
But, despite his untimely departure, we still love him. And so, Drew Brees, from all of your friends and fans back here in San Diego who watched as you were drafted, struggled, were benched in favor of Doug Flutie, reemerged with a Pro Bowl showing, set team records, and took us to the playoffs in 2004: congratulations, big guy. We salute you, and I'm sure that many of us will be rooting for the Saints in lieu of the Chargers to grab this year's Lombardi trophy.
