JJRRutgers: Cooler heads finally prevail. They came to the same conclusion sane people did: if you have review one pass play, then you have to review them all. Are you going to look at all that game film and re-examine every single spot of the football? Just go with the on the field call and leave it at that.

digistil: FWIW, the NFL does normally correct for errors during the year. The "sane" thing to do would be to continue that process in a timely manner (e.g. within the next two days of the event). But now it's been farked all to hell as Brees is still the legitimate owner of the record, but incompetence (of the league; ultimately Goodell) is assured to be an asterisk if he were to keep it.
digistil: Captain Steroid: [i1182.photobucket.com image 440x260]FWIW, your boy ain't comin' out of this much better than Brees could have. The robot now owns a clearly illegitimate record.

The robot now owns a clearly illegitimate record.Oh FFS, they rested him thinking he had the record. If it had been scored as a running play they would have left him in long enough to break the record, which would have occurred on his first play in the third quarter. And then maybe they'd have left him in for the rest of the game to rack up another 200 yards against the friggin' Raiders just to prove a point.
Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: They'd have to look at each of Brees's passes and no one wanted to do that.
Shoop008: I don't have a problem with Peyton keeping the record. If it had been the last play of the game, maybe I would feel differently. He broke the record in the first half and then didn't play the rest of the game. If he had not broken it, I'm sure he would have went out there for one series in the second half and broke it anyway.
Primitive Screwhead: I don't have a full argument for this, just more of a thought and would like to get your takes.This may have been stated earlier or in another thread and missed but...With the all the new rules neutering the defenses over the last few seasons, doesn't that take away from these records a little and give more weight to Marino's & Fouts's.Sure players are faster, stronger, more conditioned and yadda, yadda and schemes are more complicated but the D had more freedom to their job back then, making it harder for receivers to get open.
jankyboy: Seems like a slippery slope. If they were to reverse that forward pass after the fact, shouldn't the Chargers and Chiefs get back out on the field so Succop can re-kick that field goal?Good calls, bad calls... shiat happens. That's what I like about football.
NewWorldDan: I think Peyton is more proud of the scoring record, but still, here are the next 6 great offenses. What do they have in common? None of them won the Super Bowl. The '99 Rams being the only top 10 offense to win it all. Offense wins games, defense wins championships.589 - New England, 2007560 - Green Bay, 2011556 - Minnesota, 1998547 - New Orleans 2011541 - Washington, 1983540 - St. Louis, 2000
DemoKnite: Funny thing is, they will opine on on about how they dont care about the record and "as long as we win football games" etc,
swahnhennessy: This is a pretty poor thing to be concerned about. Unless you're a Saints fan, I guess.
robsul82: LOL...stunned, totally stunned, that backwards is forwards for Peyton.

Elias already reviews every play. This one, though, they decided NOT to review.
