Ever since Drew Brees arrived in the Big Easy, he's made playing quarterback in the NFL look easy.

Brees has 27,698 yards passing since coming to New Orleans in 2006, more than any other NFL quarterback during that span.

Before that, though, he never had thrown for as many as 4,000 yards in a season and spent much of his first five years in the NFL looking over his shoulder in San Diego.

"We had experienced success in San Diego in my last two years there, but I just never got the feeling that everybody there was all in with me," Brees recalled as he prepared for tonight's game with Atlanta.

Brees now believes he needed what Matt Ryan has had since being drafted by the Falcons in 2008 -- the full and unwavering support of not just his head coach but the entire organization.

Brees found that in New Orleans, which in the months after Hurricane Katrina needed someone like him -- someone with something to prove -- as much as he needed a team that believed he could be the cornerstone of its success.

"It was nice to ... walk into an organization where I just got the feeling like everybody believed in me," Brees said. "Sometimes that's all you need. All you need is somebody to believe in you, and then, obviously, my mindset was I'm not going to let these guys down. They have a lot invested in me, so I want to prove them right."

He's done that.

Drew put the New Orleans Saints on his back and won a Super Bowl. Maybe just maybe if they were all in, in SanDiego they would have a Super Bowl ring. But thank god weren't all in.

When someone believes in you, you can do incredible things.

Brees is also a mind blowing athlete.

No...Verizon doesn't secretly give you $2...they secretly take it!


Excellent post, nonetheless.
