Drew Brees fueled by the drive to compete -- and win

In the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere, nearly half of the New Orleans Saints' football team stood at the dock along the bayou and peered into the ink-black night. They were sweaty, stinky and tired. It'd been a fun night of team bonding, but the bow-fishing trip that began at 8 p.m. the previous night in Port Sulphur, La., was now stretching into the next morning and everyone was just ready to go home. The informal contest to determine who could catch the most fish and the biggest lunker had been tallied.

But one boat remained on the water, more than an hour after the others had returned to the dock. Finally, sometime in the wee hours before dawn, the last boat came in.

"We're all just sitting there waiting," said Mark Brunell, who played for the Saints in 2008 and 2009. "We're nasty, disgusting and we just want to go home. But to a man, we all knew why his boat was the last one to come in. And sure, enough, he had the most fish.

"He's even competitive in bow fishing. That's Drew Brees."

I think his biggest fuel is the lack of recognition he gets for being the best. Never an MVP, still snubbed by many, this is why Drew keeps going out year after year and getting better. I just hope he never gets that recognition, maybe that's when he'll stop playing.

Drew likes to win. A true competitor I am glad he is on our team.
