Q: Is any loss as difficult as this one?

DB: This one is difficult because you certainly felt like you had a chance. Coming in at halftime 17-7 we werenít discouraged at all, although we knew we hadnít played our best football in the first half. We felt like if we kept hammering away that we could find a way to win. Lord knows we had our chances at the end there. I know that you canít give Tom Brady and that offense three chances at a two-minute drill. So, for us offensively, you sit there and rack your brain about, ĎMan, we need to get one first down,í so that we could have put ourselves in position to run out the clock or at least get the clock down so far so that it would have been nearly impossible to come back.

Q: How did the third-and-20 play open up for you with Kenny Stills?

DB: (I) loved the play call. I just tried to use my eyes to manipulate the safety a little bit to get as close to a one-on-one matchup out there as possible. I knew he would be getting over there late, but Kenny did a great job of getting by his guy and going up and making a play in the end zone. Obviously, thatís a huge play in the game Ė third-and-20 Ė the score is 23-17, that gives us the lead and a lot of momentum.

Re: Drew Brees talks about loss to New England Patriots

That’s just opportunities for guys like Ben Watson to have big days and these young receivers to continue to develop, and when we get Lance Moore back, so we’ve got plenty of weapons and there will be plenty of opportunities for everybody

That summed it up in my book. comfort level just aint there yet.

Drew needed his man

Yeah, really ... I kept asking myself, "Who the hell is Ben Watson?", .
