Kristian: Mon. Morning QB with Drew Brees
Shortly after the thrilling, last-second victory over Tampa, I spoke with Saints quarterback Drew Brees for our "Monday Morning Quarterback" feature, which you can hear every Monday at 7:45 on WWL First News with Tommy Tucker.
Of all the team's come-from-behind wins, Brees said this one was huge.
"This was big, because...I think just because the 4th quarter couldn't have gone any worse for us offensively. We had the turnover they returned for a touchdown, we couldn't get anything going...not helping our defense at all, but to have that opportunity at the end, bang-bang-bang, three plays, and the next thing you know, we're kicking the field goal to win this game."
It was the 15th time that Drew Brees has engineered a 4th-quarter comeback for the Black and Gold.
"That's what it's all about, it's why you love this game," he told me. "Just give us a chance. Things we practice, and things we visualize and think about and believe...I think it just shows the type of team we have, the mental toughness, and the fact that we train ourselves for these types of moments. That's why we were able to get the win."
The Saints can go to 3-0 vs. Arizona in the Superdome next weekend, but Brees says it’s just one game at a time.
“We’re basically playing 16 one-game seasons…so there’s no bigger game than the one this week. We’re going to need our best, and show signs of improvement if we want to continue winning football games.”
