New Orleans Saints’ 2010’s all-decade team – who’s the best?
Drew Brees (QB)
Once again, no surprise here. Drew Brees came to the New Orleans Saints in 2006 on a trade from the San Diego Charger which proved to be one of the best deals that the Saints’ organization has ever made.
Drew Brees started the decade like most Saints did coming right off of the greatest season of their careers winning the 2009 Super Bowl. In terms of a career though, Drew Brees has had multiple personal highlights in his ever since.
Since the start of 2010, Drew Brees has won the NFL Offensive Player of the Year award (2011), an ESPY for Best Male Athlete (2010), an ESPY for Best NFL Player (2010), and ESPY for Best Championship Performance (2010), the Bart Starr award (2011), the Bryon White Man of the Year award (2011), Texas Sports Hall of Fame (2013), Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year (2011), Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year (2010), and PFWA Good Guy award (2010).
That was just the awards, not to mention the numerous NFL and Saints records he has broken this decade too.
The list just seemed to keep going for Drew Brees and that is all in the last ten years. Before that, Brees was a Comeback Player of the Year, Super Bowl MVP, and many more. The leadership that Drew Brees brings to this team is nothing short of excellence.
This future Hall-of-Famer isn’t going anywhere soon, and if we are lucky, he will retire as a New Orleans Saint.
