#3. “FREDDY KRUEGER” (or) SAINTS QB DREW BREES IS A “NIGHTMARE” FOR OPPOSING DEFENSES
For his entire time as a Saint, Drew Brees has been in the “nightmares” of opposing coaches and defensive players.
Even at this later stage of his career, the soon-to-be 38 year-old Brees has shown that he is STILL one of the best quarterbacks in the entire NFL, and almost impossible to keep in check.
The fact that the Saints still remain in the Top 5 overall in total offense and have 3 different wide receivers on pace for 1,000 yard seasons, is a testament to the man under center who is a lock for induction into the NFL Hall of Fame someday.
But for now and likely for at least a few more seasons, Brees remains at the helm of the offense; and he will do anything it takes to win, and is the type of player to take the team on his shoulders and WILL them all on his own, to do well.
All the young team has to do at this point, is follow him.
