Thank you Drew.

If you do indeed decide to retire thank you for all the wonderful memories. You brought hope to the city when we needed it most and we will always remember all that you have done. You are a winner, our winner and I hope you stay here for life. Enjoy retirement you deserve it.

Re: Thank you Drew.

Yep absolutely.

Not the way I wanted it to end if this is indeed it, but we won so many games that we had no business winning because of how lethal Brees was.

What's more, I can't really ask for a more decent human being and stand up guy to have been the face of this franchise.

I think it's best to retire now, thanks for all the memories Drew.

Agree with this

Thank you Drew! Been a blessing for the Saints for many years, and a joy to watch him play.

Best of luck to his career after football. Would be a great coach at some point.

Re: Thank you Drew.

If this is his last year, he still went out a winner.
He has been a great citizen to NewOrleans off the field.
Brees , on the field, is an ELITE QB.
FUTURE NFL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE.

I have no complaints.
Thnks Mr. B.

Re: Thank you Drew.

Awesome ride but Brees is done.

He did all he could. Blame Payton for not putting a legitimate defense around him over the last decade.

Enjoy retirement.

Our D kicked ass this year. Ranked 4th. They just didn't show up today. Latt and Jenkins did. That's about it.

Re: Thank you Drew.

Yep, thanks Drew. I'll never forget that first fateful offseason after Katrina, when Payton was hired, Brees was signed, Colston was drafted and the Saints not only rebuilt the team but in some sense the city. For various reasons I have been thinking about that time period a lot lately.

Brees has been phenomenal and it's been quite a journey - the first season, the Super Bowl, bounty gate, all the records, the post-season heartbreaks. And if Drew hangs it up it we will be fine, the team will continue to surprise and delight in various ways. Could be a great new chapter for Payton.

The defense did their job, I think. The turnovers in the second half just added up and they got wore down and the run D suffered. Still held Brady under 200 yards passing.

Couldn't have said it better myself. As the game was winding down I felt flooded with all these emotions. All of what you just typed was what was washing over me in those last few minutes and I just started crying.
