“Anyone can see adversity in a difficult situation, but it takes a stronger person to see opportunity.”Drew Brees
Quarterback Drew Brees has retired after 20 seasons in the NFL. Before being drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the second round, in 2001, Brees starred at Purdue. He was with the Chargers from 2001 to 2005 and the New Orleans Saints from 2006 to 2020. Drew Brees was selected to play in 13 Pro Bowls. He was a two-time NFL Offensive Player of the Year & a Super Bowl Champion and MVP! Drew Brees has accumulated the most career passing yards in NFL History!
Drew Brees is 6′ tall and for many of his years he was the shortest starting quarterback in the NFL. The average height of an NFL quarterback in 6’3, and being tall enables you to see over the offensive lineman and gives you a clearer line of sight to better see the passing lanes. How did Brees compensate for his lack of height? He would slide over a few feet to see the field better! Drew Brees has the heart of a champion and the Super Bowl ring to prove it! He engineered a comeback win for his New Orleans Saints over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. For his efforts, Brees was named the Super Bowl MVP! A few years prior to that, Brees sustained a very serious injury, a torn labrum, and he came back better than ever!
I look forward to the day that Drew Brees is inducted into Pro Football’s Hall of Fame!
