I don’t think Brees would have stayed in the game just to stay in front of Brady, numbers-wise.

But with Brady coming into the division, it feels like things got a little more “real.” Brees is one of those greats whose work ethic is always at a high level. But when he gets a little extra juice, watch out. And things just got a little more real.

Just a gut feeling. But I think Brees will play a) as long as Brady is in his division or b) until he wins a Super Bowl WITH Brady in his division.

I’m pretty sure Brady left New England because he wanted better receiving options too. He wanted to chase those records and Belichick wasn’t having it. Payton actually chases records for his players. We might have another Super Bowl if he wasn’t so infatuated with it, but he’s obviously more of a players coach than Belichick.

I would play as long as I could to secure the coveted NFL records. Why not? That’s a perfect motivation to keep playing.

and so more loyal to the players than to the team as a whole.
It is, sadly, true.
As long as DB/SP combo is around, we are not winning another SB. I luv Brees and only have his jersey and of course COlston!!
The haters will come on, but I find it easy to ignore them, as they are emotional, not practical.

Saints fan NOT just a Saint's player fan!

100% agree that Brady coming to the NFC South likely pushes Drew a little further. Prior to that move, I believed regardless of this season's outcome, Brees was done.

Post move, I think if the Saints win the super bowl, Brees is done; however, if they do not, and especially if the Saints split the season series with Tampa, that is going to be motivation to return.

How quickly the NFC south became the focus of the NFL world...

And that’s just sad

Calling it now - Brady is going to be a bust. There's a reason Bill didn't even make him an offer.

As competitive as Drew Brees is, his body has final say. Teddy's strong run lit a fire under Drew for sure as Drew is hyper-competitive, but he still struggled for accuracy when throwing more than 20 yds. By the time Sept comes that's only going to become more pronounced.
