Drew Brees is the talk of the media on Tuesday.

On Monday Night Football, Brees became the NFL’s all-time leader in career touchdown passes, passing Peyton Manning’s record of 539 career touchdown tosses. He threw four scoring strikes in the New Orleans Saints’ 34-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts, bringing his career total to 541.

The accomplishment comes 14 months after Brees passed Manning’s career passing yards total last season. But those are just two of the laundry list of records the former Purdue quarterback owns.

FOX radio show host Colin Cowherd lauded over Brees during his show on Tuesday, paying plenty of respect to the Saints quarterback. He said Brees embodies everything the NFL, and its quarterbacks, are supposed to be about.

“Folks, Drew Brees is what Hall of Fame quarterbacks — that’s where they come from. Too small, second-round pick, one of the great Texas high school quarterbacks, nobody offered him a scholarship, had to go to cold weather Purdue. His first NFL team, the Chargers, chose Phillip Rivers. Miami — he wanted to go there…he goes to New Orleans, a losing franchise with a bad front office. He gets a coach nobody’s heard of, some young kid with a lot of energy.

“The NBA has Jerry West as a logo, Drew Brees should be the NFL logo. I mean, he is the NFL.”

Considering some of the great quarterbacks of recent memory — Manning, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers and others — those are some pretty complimentary words from Cowherd.
