The New Orleans Saints are hoping that Drew Brees can lead them to the promised land.
If possible, Brees probably would have worked 10,000 hours this week.
On a normal Tuesday day off during the regular season, he is famous for putting in full days of film study. Typically, the quarterbacks arrive at 8 a.m. and don’t leave until 2:30 p.m.
That work schedule has ratcheted up in the Saints’ second season. Saints quarterbacks worked full days Monday and Tuesday, both scheduled days off for players. He was on the same schedule last week.
Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey said Brees arrived before sunrise last week.
“I cannot beat him here, ” Shockey said. “He’s been here very early. I’ve been here every day at about 6 o’clock, and he’s beaten me. So, like I said earlier, I’ll be here at 3 a.m. and try to beat him. And he’ll still be here probably earlier than that.
