03:46 PM ET 12.30 | The New Orleans Saints wont see the postseason this year, but quarterback Drew Brees has a new record to add to the multitudes he's already broken -- throwing for 5,000 yards in a second consecutive season. Brees is the first quarterback to ever throw for 5,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Dan Marino threw for 5,000 in 1984, but was unable to match the mark in 1985. Meanwhile,Matthew Stafford is trying to do the same for Detroit.

True. This team really needs a defensive facelift.

Ah .... all the coaches were out of position....the offensive coach was HC the defensive coach was fired and replaced, The HC was suspended all, they had a fair season with all the BS with Goodell. Goodell did show any proof on video just hear say from one disgruntle player and ex-defensive coach
