Often times we hear about how Tom Brady continues to play at an elite level at the age of 39, but we tend to forget about 38-year-old Drew Brees, who just threw for 5,208 yards to go along with a completion percentage of 70 and 37 touchdowns.
With one Super Bowl on his resume, Brees believes he has a few more years to go after a second ring.
“I got a few more (years) at least,” Brees said.
“When you first get into the league you think you’re invincible, right? You think you’re going to last forever. But I understand now, I’m just finishing my 16th season and I’m probably a little closer to the end than I am the beginning. So I just want to create a tremendous sense of urgency for every single year. I don’t want to look any further past this year and what’s right in front of us. Especially with what we’ve gone through over the last three years while watching other teams from the NFC South go to the Super Bowl.”
There’s very little doubt Brees will continue to put up huge numbers, but if they don’t improve their defense, this team won’t be winning a Super Bowl anytime soon.
