Drew Brees: Saints better this year because they have 'better people'

METAIRIE, La. -- Drew Brees has talked before about the character and culture issues that plagued the New Orleans Saints locker room last season. But he offered his most blunt assessment yet Wednesday when asked to explain why he thinks the Saints are an improved team from last year.

"Better people," Brees said. "Better guys. Guys that care about one another, guys that trust one another, guys that care about the process."

When asked if he was referring to several players the Saints parted ways with, Brees said, "Oh I don't know, I can just tell you the feel is much different."

I'm guessing it feels much different than getting smacked upside the head with a belt buckle.

There is a lot of youth on the team now and some savvy veterans. I really hope the group can come together and gel as a unit.

They have much better people, just not talented, smart or healthy.

Re: Drew Brees: Saints better this year because they have 'better people'

I'd like to get a response from Jimmy Graham, Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Kenny Stills, Jonathan Goodwin, Curtis Lofton and Ben Grubbs...

We expect Junior Galette will eventually respond on Twitter...

Maybe we can have a townhall with 'em all hosted by Drew and sponsored by Jimmy Johns...

I would venture to guess that he's specifically referring to Galette, Stills, and possibly Graham. Galette alone would be enough to bring down a whole locker room.
