Joe Unitas Letter to Drew

quote:

October 2, 2012

Drew Brees
New Orleans Saints

Metairie, LA 70003

Drew,

I wanted to take a minute to congratulate you on tying my father’s record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass. I’ve been follow your pursuit of the record since last season. I’m a big fan of yours, and wish you the best Sunday night against San Diego as you try to break the record. My father always said that records were meant to be broken. I know that if he was still with us that he would wish you the best as well.

When I look back on my father’s life I remember a man who was much bigger than the game of football. The things he would appreciate most about you have nothing to do with football; it’s about who you are as a person. You’re a role model for today’s youth, a family man, and a humanitarian who cares for his community. My father would tell you these are the important things in life, not some record in a book.

Continue to be a leader for your team and the City of New Orleans. You’re a great quarterback but even better man. Stay healthy and safe this week and in the future. My family and I will be watching Sunday night cheering for you. Best of luck.

Sincerely,

Joe Unitas

I kid, must be awesome for Drew to receive something like that. To me this record might be even more significant than Marinos. Consistent excellence

1. Yardage is the most overrated passing record there is

2. About 15-20 years ago I saw some sports historians claiming the Unitas record was more untouchable than DiMaggio's. That anyone would even think that tells you how big it is.

John Unitas was ALSO considered to be undersized for his role as NFL QB.

Drew,

I wanted to take a minute to congratulate you on tying my father’s record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass. I’ve been follow your pursuit of the record since last season with that horse shite touchdown in the final minute against the Rams. I’m a big fan of yours, and wish you the best Sunday night against San Diego as you try to break the record. My father always said that records were meant to be broken. I know that if he was still with us that he would wish you the best as well.
