A couple of players called him ‘LEGEND’ and ‘epitome of excellence.’
To this Brees reacted as he said,””It was special. Everything about tonight. We’re playing the Colts, a team that we won the Super Bowl against 10 years ago. The whole Super Bowl 44 team was back for the 10th anniversary, and obviously national television. It just makes you shake your head. It kind of makes your whole life and career flash before your eyes because I never thought I would have the chance to be a part of something like this.”
