New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees faces the biggest obstacle of his career


Drew Brees just recently got a bit of a pay raise. He even says so and this season he plans on earning it. The Saints are in their final week of training camp and new tests seem to forever follow in the wake of Bounty gate.

The 2012 season gives birth to the largest impediment for Saints leader Drew Brees, who will be regulating the offense and point the way for his other teammates without any influence from suspended head coach Sean Payton. This will be the first time the two don’t have communication throughout practices and on game day.

The hard knocks the Saints faced during the rocky off season hasn’t brought their purpose to any lower standard during training camp. When recently interviewed after a training day, Brees had this to say,

 “We’ve got to fight through. It’s part of what brings us together as a team. You pay the price now so that you can enjoy the reward later-that’s the mentality. I feel like there’s a lot of work to be done. We’re certainly not satisfied with where we’re at.”

Not to mention Brees has experience. During last season’s lockout, Brees took charge with coaching troubles and then handled taking the reins after coach Payton got pummeled during the mid season.

With Brees’ comprehension of his teammates and his coaches philosophy, his distinctive knowledge will be the greatest of dominance in Payton’s absence.
