    NDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Drew Brees’ record-setting season has earned the New Orleans quarterback the 2011 Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year award.

    Brees shattered Dan Marino’s 27-year-old mark by passing for 5,476 yards, and his 468 completions broke Peyton Manning’s 2010 record of 450. Brees finished the season completing 71.6 percent of his passes, breaking his own 2009 NFL record (70.6). He also surpassed 300 yards passing for seven straight games and 13 times during the season, both beating league marks he already held.

    “I obviously take a lot of pride in what I do on the football field, because that has the ability to influence a lot of people,” Brees said. “That puts smiles on people’s faces. That gives people a pep in their step on Monday morning when they go back to work. That does so much for the city. We have the greatest fans in the world. There’s no doubt about that. I think each and every day I think about what can I do to make my team better, make my city better, that’s my mentality.”...................

    Although Rodgers deserved the MVP, I'm glad to see Brees get recognized for his great season. And he was considered to be "expendable" not long ago. He's a great ambassador for the league, and a role model for a lot of kids. He's at the top of my list.
