Walk the memory lane with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees
A giant of its own production, Brees holds numerous NFL records. He also has a list of individual NFL accolades on his behalf, including 13 appearances in the Pro Bowl. He was also named NFL’s return player of the year in 2004 and was awarded the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year in 2010 after leading the Saints to the elusive Lombardi trophy.
Along with Alvin Kamar, Tays Hill and Michael Thomas, Brees was part of the New Orleans core team playing under the leadership of respected head coach Sean Payton.
We’ll take a brief look at some of Brees ’main quotes from his 2001 NFL debut.
- “A good friend of mine once told me that every morning, when you wake up, think about winning the day. Don’t worry about a week or a month – just think about one day. If you are worried about a mountain in the distance, you may stumble over a mole in front of you. Win a day! “
- “I needed New Orleans so much back in 2006, just someone who would believe in me, someone who would take care of me. Sometimes you just need someone to believe in you so you can accomplish maybe what you never thought you could. “
- “I think the fact is that everyone who is involved in politics feels like they ‘can make a difference.’ But it’s not one person, you need so many others. “
- “I am a very modest person. But I am also extremely confident. And if you put me in a situation or a moment, I’ll eat a little bragging, I’ll have a little whimsy. “

Did the Saints quarterback veteran arrive at the end of his NFL trip?
Despite his dominance over the last decade, Drew Brees has been inconsistent at best for the past three years. In 10 games this season, Brees has thrown more than 2,400 yards with 21 touchdowns in four interceptions. He was injured in three games with multiple rib injuries. Reports show that Drew was absent until the end of the season.
However, his recovery schedule was on track and came back in week 15 against Kansas City bosses, led by Patrick Mahomes. But the 41-year-old failed to lead his team to victory after falling to a 29-32 defeat over the weekend. Had the Saints outplayed the current Super Bowl champions, they would once again have been crowned NFC South.
Just like his longtime enemy / friend Tom Brady, Brees might be tempted to get one big check before hanging his boots. But it remains to be seen if any NFL team will take the bait and bring Brees to a shorter contract. Regardless, the Dallas-born quarterback will go down in history as one of the best quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen.
