As two of the greatest of the greats – Tom Brady and Drew Brees – defy logic with their continued elite play, history is seemingly made every time they take the field.
“It makes me remember back to 1999 when we played against each other in college,” Brees said this week, via the team website. “The (Purdue) Boilermakers traveled up to the Big House (Michigan Stadium). Unfortunately, that one didn’t end too well for us, but I think, little did we know, we would have the opportunities that we’ve had in the NFL.
“I’m sure I speak for both of us when I say that, I think we both pinch ourselves, the blessing and the opportunity to be able to play this long, play for so many great teams and with so many great players.”
