|Drew Brees: "We'll continue to thrive" -- Wed Apr 11 12:45 pm --|
QB confident in team's abilities despite Sean Payton's absence
|"You talk about not having your head coach for an entire season, that's a big hit," said Brees, who declined to say who'd he like to see hired as interim coach. But Brees said he believes the Saints will remain strong. He pointed to last year, when Payton was injured in a sideline collision and had to coach several games from the press box. "It was almost as if our head coach had been taken away for a four-to-six week period," Brees said. "It seems like our organization, whenever we're hit with something, any kind of adversity, we have guys that step up and fill the void and take on more responsibility and really thrive in it," he said.

FF Today's Take: It's difficult to say just how much of an impact Sean Payton's absence will have on the fantasy production of Drew Brees and the rest of the New Orleans Saints offense. With a veteran like Brees under center, it should make the Saints transition easier than if they were to have a first or second-year quarterback calling the shots. Brees remains a stud, as do tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Marques Colston.
