New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees breaks another NFL record

New Orleans Saints quarterback broke Ken Anderson's 27-year-old record for completion percentage.

Although New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees did not play in Sunday's 23-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers, he managed to set a record for the highest completion percentage in NFL history.

By completing 70.6 percent (363 of 514) of his passes, Brees snapped the single-season record held by former Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson, who registered a 70.55 completion rate in 1982.

It's the third consecutive season that Brees has either broken or flirted with an NFL record. In 2007, he broke the record for completions in a season with 440, and last season he was 15 yards shy of snapping the NFL season-single record for passing yards.

"It's a huge record," Brees said. "That just says a lot about our team and our offense and what we are doing. Everybody has a hand in that."

IT'S A GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT. KEN ANDERSON? I REMEMBER HIM. AND I REMEMBER HE NEVER WON A SUPER BOWL EITHER.

It should be noted Ken Anderson posted that record season during the strike shortened '82 season. They only played 9 games that season according to wiki.

A 57-day long players' strike reduced the 1982 season from a 16-game schedule per team to 9. Because of the shortened season, the NFL adopted a special 16-team playoff tournament; division standings were ignored. Eight teams from each conference were seeded 1-8 based on their regular season records.

He had his shot in '82 having only to play a 9 game season.^^^

KEN WAS A GREAT QB .... HE JUST PLAYED FOR THE WRONG TEAM.

THE BENGALS OF HIS DAY WERE NOT TOO QB FRIENDLY. MEANING ...

MOST OF THEIR OFFENSIVE LINES, LEFT VERY MUCH TO BE :rolleyes: DESIRED.

I've never really heard of him. I'm more curious to know who held the comp% record before him. But just curious, would you pick over your old favorite QB Bartkowski for Ken Anderson?

Neither played for the right team. If Bartkowski and Bradshaw switched places you'd be saying Terry Who?

Whoa, back up man. :o

Matt had a sophomore slump. The entire team had a sophomore slump.

These things tend to happen in the league with injuries, brutal schedules, and opposing teams that are clearly dominant within the division(saints), etc.

Drew was the best QB this year, and the best over the last 4 years IMO. If he wins the award, it'll likely be a mini-"lifetime achievement" type of thing. Whatever, he deserves it.

Even the haters believe we'd be like a 5 win team without him. Who's more valuable to their team, honestly?

Well you claim Matt Ryan isn't the most accurate QB of all time yet you compare Brees a 9 year veteran to Ryan a 2 year veteran?

I'd say Manning or Brees. The saints have Volek so they could win with him. However, we've seen proof of how bad the Colts and saints backup QBs are!

DEFINITELY NO! THERE NEVER HAS BEEN OR EVER

WILL BE AN ATLANTA QB BETTER THAN BART IN MY BOOK. IT'S A LITTLE

MORE THAN STATS WITH ME. BART WAS A REAL FOOTBALL PLAYER. IT

WAS MORE THAN JUST A JOB WITH HIM. BRESS REMINDS ME OF HIM.

BREES IS A GUTSY GUY. HE STANDS IN THAT POCKET WITH NERVES OF STEEL.

THAT WAS BART, AND HE COULD SLING THAT THING DOWN THE FIELD TOO. :rolleyes:

Everyone loved Bart, too bad the guy had bad knees and wasn't a tad bit more mobile because who knows how far he could've taken us...
