Saints Stall, But History Marches On

Dec 27, 2009 by

I am baffled.

I won’t get into the incredible nosedive our offense took in the second quarter, nor shall I attempt to explain the tailspin the D sent the game into in the second half. I shall also refrain from commenting on the inept play calling of the second half resulting in a 20-17 overtime loss to the (now) 3-12 Buccaneers. I leave that to those who can refrain from Tourettical exposition. What I will say is that history is still being made at every Saints game.

Drew Brees has passed that Aaron Brooks (1,563) in passing completions with 1,572 to notch another Saints first place record. Brees also set a new team record with 19 consecutive completions in a game.

With 284 career receptions, Marques Colston has tied Tony Galbreath for fourth place. He is 25 receptions from Danny Abramowicz’ third place mark.

Charles Grant is up to 47 career sacks and in seventh place all-time needing 4 to take sixth place from LaRoi Glover (50)

Darren Sharper tied Dave Waymer at second place with nine interceptions in a season. He needs one to tie, or two to pass, Dave Whitsell’s 1967 mark of 10. At 376 Int-Yds, Sharper is just twenty yards from taking third pace from Dave Waymer (395).

As a team, the Saints have scored 503 points this season, the first time they have ever broken the 500-mark. They are 40 points past last years team record of 463 points.

Next stop: Carolina who leads the series 16-12.
