Drew Brees reminded everyone Monday night that being a great father is more important than being a great quarterback.
Monday night was a special moment for New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees. He broke Peyton Manning’s career passing record during the game against the Washington Redskins. And since he was wearing a microphone, we had a chance to listen in to him celebrate with his family on the field.
It was during that celebration that we got a glimpse into what kind of dad Brees is as he addressed his three boys (mom was holding their daughter). “I love you guys so much,” Brees said. “You can accomplish anything in life if you’re willing to work for it! Alright?”
Brees’ story is worth mentioning. He’s never been the biggest, fastest or the most talented of quarterbacks coming out of college. In fact, many didn’t think he would ever make it in the NFL, especially after a shoulder injury early on in his career. Yet he has become the most productive quarterback in NFL history. But in that unguarded moment, we all have a reminder of what really matters most in this world.
