Drew Brees Becomes NFL's All-Time Leader in Passing Yards

"Drew, for 1,000 days I've held the record for all-time passing yards in the National Football League and I've got to tell you, it's been the greatest 1,000 days of my life and thanks to you that's over now", Manning said jokingly.

Manning went ahead and congratulated Brees on breaking his passing touchdowns record, too - as he's well on pace to accomplish that feat before he retires.

Manning taped a message to Brees, which was shown in the stadium when he broke the record.

"Thanks to you, that's over now", Manning continued as the laughter erupted in the stands.

"All your hard work and dedication have paid off", Manning said while holding up a photo of himself and Brees standing side-by-side in 2000, when Brees was still at Purdue and Manning was a third-year pro.

"Also let this serve as the congratulations for the record, because as you see, I'm very busy". I've got to tell you it's been the greatest 1,000 days of my life.

Brees was wearing a microphone for broadcaster ESPN and was recorded telling teammates, family members, and head coach Sean Payton how much he loved them. Even at 39 years old, the same age Manning was when he last threw a pass, Brees is still playing like one of the of the NFL's best quarterbacks.

Drew Brees is the NFL's all-time passer. While making his mark in SD, Brees suffered a potentially career-ending shoulder injury in 2005 that caused many teams to pass on him in free agency.
