Now that Drew Brees has announced his retirement from the NFL, fans of the New Orleans Saints have had time to digest the news. First we dealt with denial. Then we moved to anger. And now the depression hits.

I think our own Maddy Hudak said it best:
On paper, there’s no room for debate over the success of Brees’ football career. All of the statistical achievements pale in comparison to what he’s done for the city of New Orleans, and the Saints franchise.
Brees chose New Orleans as his home to heal and rebuild; in turn, he saved an entire city. He ushered in an era of transformative success that reshaped a franchise that previously donned paper bags on game day. His legacy transcends the game of football.
Through this lens, Drew Brees might just be the Most Valuable Player in NFL history.
