Brees Wins AP Offensive Player of the Year Award

From: Yahoo! Sports

In a year of prolific offenses, Drew Brees stood out like, well, Dan Marino. Brees came so close to Marino’s NFL record for yards passing that the New Orleans Saints quarterback won The Associated Press 2008 NFL Offensive Player of the Year award Tuesday. Brees threw for 5,069 yards, 15 fewer than Dan Marino’s 1984 mark and only the second time someone has eclipsed 5,000 yards passing in a season. “I don’t come out from week to week and say I have to throw for 300 (yards),” Brees said. “I don’t think about that. It’s really about what I can do to help this team win.”
