Captain a Super Bowl team
The goal for any organization at the beginning of the season is to be crowned champions at the end, and while each of Brees’ last three seasons have been successful for him, the team has fallen short for one reason or another.
Last season, it was the Minnesota Vikings who downed the Saints in the Wild Card round. We’ve seen the blown call and the Minnesota Miracle all crush fans over the last half a decade as well. It’s not necessarily been Brees’ fault.
But, when it comes down to it, the quarterback is oftentimes given most the blame. After all, Brees was 26-for-33 and had a touchdown and pick. That’s not great for a future first-ballot Hall of Famer.
That said, in order for this season to be successful, Brees needs to stop with the regular-season numbers and show up when it matters. He needs to be holding the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season.
Brees is too good to not complete a few of the goals we laid out for him, but it’ll all boil down to if he can find a way to complete the third and final goal — winning the Super Bowl.
