Happy Birthday #9 !


photoOne of the most proficient quarterbacks to play the game turns 36 today! With so many records broken, at times it seems like Brees is his own competition. Fans have witnessed games where Brees has shattered his own achievements and challenges himself. A man of selflessness and not of selfishness, Brees has recently stated that he’ll be flexible with his contract in order to help his team achieve further success for the years to come. Drew could have taken a bigger contract but what good is the pay if your team is not winning? Drew Brees has also done exceptional work for the city of New Orleans and played a big part in the rebuilding of the of the city from 2009 and still provides assistance.

In 2009 he delivered extradonary performances in order to lift his team to a Super-bowl win. Not only did that championship lift up the city who were in the middle of recovery from Katrina, it lifted the spirits of Saints fans everywhere. We know how great this guy is but show some of these accomplishments to the nonbelievers of “Breesus”. Check them out below
