New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is great at bouncing back from a bad situation. James Varney, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees needs no attaboys, but he does need a defense.

After flicking an ill-advised pass that was intercepted by the Atlanta Falcons and returned for a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter of a critical game last Monday night, Brees came right back on the field a kickoff later and found fullback Heath Evans approaching him for a supportive pat or helmet butt.
