Drew Brees Says New Orleans Saints Still Have A Lot to Play For

Can you talk about the pride you have in Texas quarterbacks?
“Somebody, I think it was my grandparents, sent me an article in the Dallas paper a couple weeks back and I didn’t even realize it at the time until I read the article but there are nine starting quarterbacks in the NFL from the state of Texas. I kind of went through the list of guys. This year the list got pumped up a little bit, obviously, with RG3 (Robert Griffin III), Andrew Luck, Nick Foles taking over as the starter in Philly and I believe there might have been one other young guy. I couldn’t believe that there was nine out of 32. Obviously the whole state of Texas takes pride in football and they run a lot of those high school programs like college programs, they have the facilities that way and the coaching staffs. Obviously it’s a very highly recruited state. When I went up to Purdue, we were kind of the first crop of Texas guys going up there, at least my class there weren’t any Texas guys on the team. By the time we left, I think we had 18-20 Texas guys. There is such a vast amount of guys and, obviously, Texas, Texas A&M, and a lot of the Texas schools kind of take their pick but so many are going out of state now to Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Missouri or into the Big Ten. It’s something we take a lot of pride in but I guess especially the quarterback position in particular just seems like it’s becoming more and more.”

Before you came to New Orleans, did you ever envision a point in your career where you were regularly putting up 5,000 yard seasons?
“No. Definitely not those kind of numbers. Coming to the Saints in particular, the circumstances surrounding that were I hope I can throw like I’m used to, or like I once did, coming off that injury and hopefully be able to win some games and be able to play for a while.”

When you step back, the numbers are pretty staggering, it’s another great season… “I haven’t stepped back. I don’t plan on stepping back until somebody tells me the season is over.”

How well is Dallas playing right now? What are some of the challenges in playing a team that is playing it’s best football?
“Yes, and they’re playing for a lot. They’re playing for a playoff spot and division championship. We know we’re going to get their best performance. For us, despite the fact that we have this very small chance still at the playoffs, but I guess we are all but eliminated, we still have a lot to play for to because of the type of guys we have and the way we want to finish this season and our mindset towards building the foundation right now for what we’re going to able to accomplish in the future.”

Football in Texas has always been on the map ... hell, they even make movies & TV series about it.

Another great interview with Drew. This is what makes the Saints a better team then teams like the Jets, Lions, Cardinals, Eagles, Titans, Chargers, Panthers ... even without a H/C. Leadership.

It's a win win situation now

If we win, we are playing for pride

If we lose we get a better draft pick

And we may even get that 2nd back.

In light of all the BS that's surfacing surrounding Goodella-the-Hun's botching of a simple handing-out-of-fines situation, that 2nd round pick better come back,:burn:
