I don't think there was a problem with him breakng the record. However, I thnk needing 30 yards to do it, you're on the Falcons' 32 yd line, you're already up 38-16 and there's less than 5 mins left. You know you're throwing there only to break a record. It has nothng to do with the football game. They didn't need those 32 yards. They could have run three times, kicked a FG and given the ball back to the Falcons with 2 mins left up 41-16.
And then, after going for it anyway, they STOP THE FUCKING GAME TO BLOW HIM OVER THE PA SYSTEM? I'm sorry, but that's just tacky.
If DeMarcus Ware breaks the sack record next week, should they stop the game and ballwash him?
I would have thought that Brees breaking the record in a meaningful way, and doing it humbly, without a bunch of bullshit fanfare, would have been more appropriate.
