These two things will never happen simultaneously by the same quarterback again. Ever

Very good point. Anyone throwing this many times for this many yards is going to be in the mid-to-low 60s percentile. When you account for drops (usually 1-3 a game) and balls intentionally thrown away when receivers are covered (usually 3-5 times a game) 72% is stunning. It's the most undervalued record Brees owns.

The Saints only won one super bowl with the greatest QB of all-time. I know it sounds nit-picky, but the saints really could have and should have a dynasty with Drew Brees as their QB.

The MVP criteria just seemed to change yearly to what fit Peyton Manning the best.

We're in the same era as Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, etc. Favre and Manning have 1 each
