Drew Brees has been the hallmark for passing greatness. He's also been a Super Bowl champion, and now the quarterback finds himself on a struggling New Orleans team that’s trying to fight out of the rut they have put themselves in. The defense is struggling without Gregg Williams, and a loss to Philadelphia Monday night could seal the Saints fate before Thanksgiving. That being said, Brees spoke to Bobby Hebert on WWL in New Orleans to talk about the team’s struggles, and the importance of rebounding in their next match up with the Philadelphia Eagles. “Unfortunately that’s a bad memory for us, but you gotta grow from those situations and games like that, circumstances like this. Obviously I felt like we have improved each and every week this season, from Week 1 until Week 6, and unfortunately that trip to Denver was a little bit of an aberration for us. That’s not the team that we are; that’s not the way that we have been taught to play. We’re a prideful group that just walks away from that one real disappointed. And yet it just lights a fire under us even more, just realizing that we want to get that taste out of our mouths. We want to get back on the field, put together a great team performance, great team win and get back on a winning track. We do have a mountain to climb here — we know that — but it’s one game at a time and no better way to do it than Monday Night Football against Philly.” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
