How odd will it be to have you, Tracy Porter and Peyton Manning on the field at the same time again just in a different configuration?

“(It is) the nature of this league I guess. There are transactions that occur throughout the course of your career. It’s funny sometimes you end up playing with guys that you played against for so long or vice-versa. It’s always interesting. It feels like every week there is at least some kind of situation like that but, obviously, that was a pretty big thing that we were all involved in.”

Given that Super Bowl history, will you say something to Tracy on the field? Are you looking forward to seeing him?

“Yes. Any time it’s a former teammate, like last week it was Carl Nicks and this week it will be Tracy, I am sure there will be more guys down the road, (Robert) Meachem the week before that, a lot of guys that were a big part of our success here over the last few years, it’s always good to see those guys.”

From your perspective, what does Peyton Manning do better than others? What is the one thing you would say he does best?

“He has such great command of the offense and the situation. You know he is one of those guys that is just so meticulous, you can just see it. I am sure his performance is indicative of his preparation. You can tell he is sitting there and surveying, he is making adjustments and you look at his sideline routine and the way he is studying pictures, you just constantly see a guy who is competing. Competing and trying to put himself and his team in the best position to succeed. You have a lot of respect for a guy like that, that has that approach.”

Does he do things differently than other quarterbacks pre-snap at the line?

“No. As a quarterback, we have our job within our offense, within our system. It is to survey what is happening, get into the best play possible. You study so that you see things, feel things, anticipate things that maybe others can’t, or you can recognize them faster so that you’re able to put yourself in a position to make that play that might be the difference in the game.”

I live in Denver & will be at the game on Sunday to cheer for my Saints. The talking heads here talk as if the game is in the bag for the Broncos. I say let them underestimate us.

Re: Drew Brees Discusses Facing Peyton Manning and Playing in Denver

Adam Schein says we have no chance. He is all in for Peyton Manning. I keep thinking hey Adam, its not like we have the Jag's or Brown's offense here. Adam was all in love with PM for the SB too. Just kept going on about how would our defense stop the mighty Colts, while failing to realize that offense that year was way more prolific than the colts. Schein has become a bit pompous and full of himself, which is why I usually turn off the Sirius Blitz and wait for Moving the Chains with Tim & Pat.

Re: Drew Brees Discusses Facing Peyton Manning and Playing in Denver

You can see PM trying to tell the guys where to line up on most plays, and direct them after. This is not PM's team yet, and the offense is not gelling. They have a season or 2 to go before they become a well oiled machine.
This is a PM offense in its infantry.
Defense is pretty good though, but we shredded better.

We do need to win this game though, because Falcons did, and it could come down to common teams we both played in the end.

This game might go down to who has the ball last.
