Drew Brees has always meant so much to New Orleans.
So when Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke Peyton Manning's record for most career passing yards in NFL history, one Saints fan could not hold it in.
Brees broke Manning's record in an incredible fashion, connecting with rookie Tre'Quan Smith on a 62-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, extending the Saints lead to 26-6.
After Hurricane Katrina destoyed much of the city in 2005, New Orleans needed something to brighten them up. A year later, Brees became that guy. Brees, a guy that defeated all the odds to get where he is today, gave the people of New Orleans someone to look up to. It all culminated when he led the Saints to a Super Bowl victory in 2009, giving the franchise its first championship.
Maybe it was full circle for the fan as well.
