His all-time passing record was just hours old, but Saints quarterback Drew Brees took time to join the Dan Patrick Show Tuesday morning on 102.9FM/750AM The GAME to discuss his historic feat.
Brees passed Peyton Manning’s record for all-time NFL passing yards with a 62-yard touchdown pass to receiver Tre’Quan Smith late in the second quarter against the Redskins. New Orleans went on to win 43-19, with Brees going 26-for-29 for 363 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Here is how the moment sounded on Monday Night Football on Westwood One, heard on The GAME.
Brees was mic’d up for the moment, and took time to share wisdom with his kids.

Brees told DP what it was like to share that moment with his family.
Plenty of recognizable names reached out to congratulate Brees, none more humorous than Manning, who shared this video to recognize Brees breaking his record.
Peyton Manning’s really happy you broke his record.
Well … kind of. 🤣 pic.twitter.com/aUxXIDFzI8

Brees told Dan it was surreal receiving all those messages.
At 39 years old, Brees knows his games are numbered for the rest of his NFL career. Dan asked him if he’s had any retirement conversations with his wife, Brittany.
