ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that the NFL has granted quarterback Drew Brees' request to have suspended coach Sean Payton, general manager Mickey Loomis and assistant head coach Joe Vitt attend Sunday night’s game with the San Diego Chargers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcsouth/post/_ ... ndays-game
This is a significant game because Brees needs one touchdown pass to set a new record for consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass. He’s tied with Johnny Unitas at 47 straight games. The game is also special to Brees because he was drafted by the Chargers, but the team let him go after the 2005 season because there was uncertainty about the health of his shoulder.
Personally I think it's BS but most don't seem to have a problem. Some feel they have a right to be there and it's a nice gesture by the NFL allowing them to be there. They gave up those rights when they got caught doing what they were doing. You want to watch history, watch it on your tv like the rest of us are going to do. I now hope San Diego goes ape shoot on D and he doesn't throw a TD.
It's a big record, Sean Mickey and Joe are in no contact with the team. Just let it go. You should be able to appreciate it. This isn't something to be upset about, as we're not talking about Barry Bonds breaking the home run record here. I think everyone can agree that Brees deserves it, that he has honestly put in the work and earned the record? So everyone should enjoy it.
