Drew Brees appeared with a ‘cheerful’ character during the press meeting after Sunday’s epic match at Raymond James Stadium. The veteran NFL midfielder praised his teammates after their 3-38 win over Tom Brady and Buccaneers.
He say, “Obviously, we know this is a big game. Divided opponents. Tampa played really well. Look, it’s the next game for us, it’s the next challenge for us. We’re just trying to get better every week. Obviously, we’ve been a bit lacking in the past few weeks ”
“There had to be a lot of young guys and playing and they played well. We tried everything to win. Tonight’s good to bring people back, bring them back in, “
“I think we’ve been slowly doing it. We want to get the ball around, we want to play complementary football. Can’t say enough about our defense, the defense played extraordinary. And then attacking we were able to have possession, run well, pitch well and, just, it was a great night in the long run, ” Brees said over NFL network.
Two different nights for two legendary QBs.
