The Story of Drew Brees is the Story of the NFL

Drew Brees is now the best QB of all time by at least one metric. Where does he truly stand among the greats? The NFC East is still a shot in the dark, who comes out on top, and what do the Eagles need to do to go back to back? Did the Jacksonville Bortles lose, or did Kansas City win? And where do we stand on the Packers? All that and much, much more, this week on Just Press Play. Show notes and more can be found on our website. Special thanks again to Tony Green for bringing the...

Octopuses on Molly
