Drew Brees addresses Bradshaw criticism

Updated:

Saints quarterback Drew Brees made the rounds on morning sports radio Thursday.

Besides talking about his breaking the decades long record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass, he talked about the bounty scandal punishments that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently re-instated.

Brees said he thinks the scandal is a big sham and ridiculous that his coaches have been suspended for part or the entire year.

He also says the punishment letters that Goodell sent out seem to have changed the focus of why the discipline was being handed down.

Brees also addressed the recent criticism he received from hall of famer Terry Bradshaw for asking for permission for Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis and Joe Vitt to be in the Superdome last Sunday when he broke Johnny Unitas' record.

Brees repeated that those men deserved to be there and were a big reason the record was able to be broken.

 

Terry Bradshaw's comment as reported by USA Today:

"I was a little upset that Brees went to the NFL to get Payton and everybody back to watch him break a record, I'm like, 'Are you kidding me?' I never would have gone and asked for them back ... I thought it was disrespectful to the San Diego Chargers. ... So break it, go ahead. Hell, you're throwing it 50 times a game ... I'm just against stuff like that. I just don't believe in doing stuff like that."
