The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we do just about everything. Drew Brees may have found a way to work turn that adversity into an advantage for his arm. His throwing coach, Tom House, told the Saints podcast recently that a goal for Drew entering his 20th training was to throw a 60-yard-pass.
“There’s been some moments of discovery with us this offseason,” Brees said. “Covid presented a great challenge, obviously because we couldn’t go to our normal places and do our normal things. So we had adapt with what we were doing from a training perspective.”
“Most of it happened in my back yard,” Brees laughed as he reflected back.
“At the end of the day what is the ultimate goal? It’s to drive down the field and score touchdowns,” Brees stated. “So, if we can do that in three plays with a couple of big plays, long pass plays down the field, then great. But, if we’ve got to put together fourteen play drives, then we’ll do that too. I do like those plays down the field though.”
