Drew Brees on Greatness


He tells a story about Saints quarterback Drew Brees to drive the point home. One weeknight several years ago, Glazer was out at midnight with a Saints coach who suddenly realized he’d left something at the office. Glazer accompanied the coach back to Airline Drive in Metairie where there was but one light on in the facility. It was Drew Brees, watching film in the tight ends room.
“What are you doing here?” Glazer asked him.
Said Brees: “Sometimes trying to be great is lonely.”
