Drew Brees: The Denver Broncos Game Lit a Fire Within All of Us

Can you talk about why you dressed as Iron Man to take your son Baylen trick or treating?
“Yes, first of all, I do not pick my Halloween costumes. It’s my son, so Baylen’s old enough now that he can tell me what I’m going to wear for Halloween, so he was going as little Iron Man. I was going to be daddy Iron Man. Unfortunately at the last second, he did not want to put on his Iron Man costume. He decided to go with pajamas instead, so he rolled in pajamas and bare feet with his Koala bear stuffed animal trick or treating until he ate the first or second piece of candy, got on a quick sugar high and then we couldn’t keep up with him.”

How would Sean Payton handle the situation you guys are going through right now?
“Just stick together. I think this is when a lot of teams or maybe less mentally tough individuals would start pointing the finger and starting getting overly frustrated or pessimistic. That’s not our mentality. That’s not the way we’ve been brought up so to speak in this organization with this foundation we’ve built. There’s never a more important time to circle the wagons and rally around each other and make it about each week once at a time. We can’t look at anything else. We can’t look at the rest of our schedule. We can’t look at our division. We can’t look at anything other than how do we win this week? I feel like that’s the approach we’ve taken this entire season. I feel like we’ve gotten better every week with the exception of last week. Last week was extremely disappointing, the result of the game and our overall performance as a team, just did not play up to our standard, certainly with the hype going into that game and we were all hurt by it, but it also lights a fire within all of us that we don’t want that to be the lasting memory that people have of our team. We’re better than that and we need to show them on Monday night.”

Do you try to think about what Sean would do in that situation?
“In my mind and for all the guys that have been around Sean, I think you know the things he would be preaching maybe to you and to the team. Joe Vitt has been around Sean Payton longer than all of us, so he knows Sean and so a lot of the things Joe Vitt is saying now are reminiscent of things Sean has said in the past when we’ve been in tough situations. Maybe it’s not something where we are going to hear this specific story, but we’ve heard some Joe Vitt stories that have been very applicable to our situation.”

I've heard the same thing after every loss

"This game has lit a fire under us"

The fact the NFL tried to dismantle the team should have lit the fire!

If blowing a 24-6 lead to a team that has not had the lead for a second in a single game this year didn't do the trick, then why would getting your collective offensive & defensive a$$es handed to you by a very good Denver team strike the match that lit a fire under you?

It's time to start positioning for the draft...minus our forfeited 2nd...minus the pick we gave up for Barrett Ruud. That leaves us with 5 picks. Great.

Reports are that goodell could be giving that 2nd round pick back to us, unless there's some player we really need, I expect us to pull a St. Louis rams and trade back for more picks

I remember reading something along the lines of we could have our 2nd round pick back but we would have to give up 2 or 3 later round picks. Maybe someone can help me out with that because I know I read it on this board.

Day late and a lotta dollars short, Drew.
Lost the attitude . You just got out scored by QBs from Washington-Carolina-Kansas City. If that didn't lite the fire, losing to Peyton Manning wont.
Play like your paid to play & we win. No one can keep up. We have a bad defense but the offense is seriously underperforming. Best defense is points on the board.

Actually our problem is the other way around... the best friend of the offense is a defense that can keep points off of the board. The Saints offense is still ranked in the top 5 this season. Our defense on the other hand... historically terrible.

In 2009 we won it all by scoring 100+ points on the 3 best teams. This year we started by scoring 83 against 3 bottom feeders. That one score a game changes a lot. Don't get me wrong the defense is bad but the offense isn't helping any.
