When it comes to his play, and the play of his New Orleans Saints teammates, quarterback Drew Brees always has high expectations. Jeff Duncan, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

Drew Brees has been so brilliant for so long in New Orleans, expectations for the Saints quarterback have become almost unattainable.

Take this season for example.

Brees ranked in the top five in the NFL in passing yards, touchdown passes, completion percentage and sack percentage. Moreover, he became only the second quarterback in NFL history to pass for 4,000 or more yards in five seasons.
