Drew Brees: "They Know How to Work and Win"
Can you talk about the atmosphere today?
“It was a great atmosphere today. Obviously a ton of fans came out to watch practice. For us, it’s great to break up the monotony of training camp, always by yourself and that kind of thing and come up for the opportunity to scrimmage against somebody other than yourself and really a great team. There’s not a team that’s won more games than the New England Patriots over the last decade. To have a chance to be around them, watch how they work, compete against new personnel and a new scheme is good for both sides.”
Do you sense because of what’s happened, that there is an us against the world sentiment?
“I didn’t know if I’d say it like that it’s us against the world, but were going to have a chip on our shoulder anyways. But, there’s no shortage of motivation to go out and play well this year.”
Do you admire how the Patriots played in 2007 when they were in a similar situation although not without a head coach?
“No they didn’t, but they played well that year. They went out and almost won every game and obviously we hope we can put together the same type of result. Certainly it’s something we can look at where maybe this is something similar we are going through. You try to take a negative and turn it into a positive.
Are they the one team that can relate to what you have at tight end?
“It’s great to have a weapon like Jimmy (Graham). It’s kind of ironic that him and (Rob) Gronkowski came out the same year. I think Gronk is a second and Jimmy a third round pick. Those guys have established themselves as two of the best tight ends in the league. Both players continue to get better and better. It’s fun to get them on the same field to go at it even though it’s not on both sides of the ball from the perspective of what great athletes and great players both are.”
New Orleans Saints hope to use New England Patriots as model
Gronk and Grambeaux!
