Drew Brees passed Peyton Manning as the NFL's all time passing leader during the Saints MNF win against the Redskins. While the broadcasters were busy heaping praise on Brees, Ben Maller points out that Brees owes this to Nick Saban's ineptitude.
Nick Saban decided to go with Daunte Culpepper over Brees due to his injured shoulder. Brees went on to star in New Orleans while Culpepper fizzled out in Miami. Maller is convinced that if Brees had ended up on the Dolphins, he'd be no where near Manning's record today.
