Mickey Loomis, Saints general manager, and a candidate for NFL executive of the year, signed quarterback Drew Brees, who deserves all the credit in the world for turning the franchise around.

Question: The Saints were the only team willing to invest a small fortune in Brees. Was that a stroke of luck that overcame a serious injury to his right shoulder?

Loomis: I don´t think we were smarter than anyone else. It was probably more a gamble.

Q: Why were you convinced that Brees wasn´t the risk other teams did?

L: We talked to a lot of doctors with experience with this particular injury in baseball, and basically they felt there was no reason he couldn´t come back from it. Now, sometimes players don´t recover the full velocity with throws for some time, but the people we talked to gave us every indication he could back from this.
