Brees as mentor?

BREES AS MENTOR? Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Greg Olson was Drew Brees' quarterbacks coach at Purdue. At the time, Olson enlisted the help of young Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, driving Brees to Indianapolis to meet with him for some guidance.
Olson told reporters in Tampa this week that he has spoken to Brees about returning the favor with rookie Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman this offseason.
"Figure I could give him some advice that could come back and haunt me, " Brees joked when the Tampa media asked him about it this week, before turning more serious. "I'm all for talking to young quarterbacks, and I guess, helping them along. I was that guy at one point. I'm still that guy in a lot of ways, looking for all kinds of ways to get better. So, yeah, I'm very receptive to that sort of thing."
Freeman said Brees has already been a big part of his tutelage in Tampa.
"I hear a lot about Drew Brees, " Freeman said. "Coach Olson is trying to give me tips on how Drew works in practice, how he works throughout the week, just his commanding presence on the field."

Re: Brees as mentor?

Anybody that wants to be an elite QB should follow the training schedule and preparation that Drew does. He learned some things from Peyton...I can see where that would have been valuable to Drew.
