New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees seems poised to have another record-setting season, if training camp performance is any indication.
The face of the franchise is a 7-time Pro-Bowler, the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year in 2004, the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year in 2008 & 2011, as well as the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV.
Brees also holds the NFL single-season record for most passing yards in a season by a quarterback, 5,476 yards in the 2011 season. Despite the turmoil of last season's Bounty Gate drama and the absence of head coach Sean Payton, Brees set the record for most consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass - 54 - which trumped Johnny Unitas's record of 47.
Now, Brees is 34 and some critics are beginning to questions just how long No. 9 can keep his impressive, clutch performances going.
At the beginning of this summers training camp, Brees said 40 is the new 30, and he plans to be playing at this same level when he reaches the big 4-0.
