Even though he became a better player he still wasn't Drew Brees until he met Sean Payton.

You know thinking about it I agree with that Rugby, Coach instilled a lot of confidence and support to Drew. The two had this instant connection from day one. Also good article.

Re: Drew Brees recalls game that saved his job, catapulted career

He was a disaster until Payton and the Saints gave him the support and system he needed...

Too bad when it came to contract time, he couldn't reciprocate the same team-first philosophy...

Happy for the success he's had with the Saints; too bad he and his agent had to limit it with that albatross contract...

I've said it before, if the Saints didn't pay Brees, another team would have.

Brees is NOT the reason the Saints are in the shape they are in! If the rest of the team prepared AND played as hard as Brees does the Saints would be un-beatable!

Tom Brady signs cap-friendly, three-year extension with Patriots

Tom Brady is the NFL's most Underpaid Player | The MMQB with Peter King

Agent's Take: What you should know about Tom Brady's unique contract - CBSSports.com

Conclusion: By taking a pay-cut Brady was able to keep talented supporting cast players and has since won a Superbowl; Brees, not so much...

Brees isn't the only reason, but his cap hit doesn't help; and his team-first-mantra credibility with teammates is quietly questioned...
