When quarterbacks come into the NFL, they’re often judged on measurables and arm talent, but what ultimately separates those that have long careers from the washouts is what’s above the shoulders.
Drew Brees is a perfect example. He’s has never blown anyone away with his physical ability, but because he’s a football savant, he’s a lock for Canton when he hangs it up.
After after a decade together, Brees and Sean Payton basically share a brain, and a short video of the two mic’d up, calling plays, gives a glimpse into what it looks like to have complete command of an NFL offense.
Listen to Brees and Payton running through some calls. It will make your head spin around.
