Drew Brees is responding to comments made by former quarterback and Louisiana native Terry Bradshaw.
Yesterday, Bradshaw told WFAN the fact Brees broke Johnny Unitas' 52-year-old record was unimpressive.
"(The record) didn't blow me away," says Bradshaw. "I'm not much on that stuff ... I'm not into records, fellas. I'm just into winning football games. (The Saints) hadn't won a game ... I'm not into records, I'm into winning Super Bowls."
He also said Brees getting permission to have Sean Payton watch the game was "disrespectful" to the San Diego Chargers and the family of Johnny Unitas.
"I was a little upset that he went to the NFL to get Payton and everybody back to watch him break a record," Bradshaw said. "I'm like, ‘Are you kidding me?' I never would have gone and asked for them back."
Today, Brees responded on the NFL Network, saying "there's no person that's a bigger part of that record than Sean Payton. Mickey Loomis, Joe Vitt, all the coaches on suspension right now, I felt it was very important for them to be there. They're as big a part of that as anybody and it made for a historic night and I was very glad for them to be a part of it."
