- when it comes to this point, in- the n-f-l playoffs... the - last thing teams want, is a - distraction.- the new orleans saints usually- don't have a- problem, staying on task... but- last night, they- made an exception.- to ring a new age of who dat- football... with an early - 40th-birthday celebration... fo- quarterback - drew brees.
- his actual milestone birthday i- tuesday...- which will make him just the- 16th quarterback, - in n-f-l history... to start in- the league, after - turning 40 years old.
- with age comes experience... an- brees has - been around long enough to see- the good, the bad - and the ugly.
- last year's exit from the - post-season, was certainly- the bad and the ugly... while - sunday's triumph, over- the eagles... would qualify as- the good.
- - "i just know this, if you do- things the right way- long enough good things happen,- right?
And if you play this gam- long enough - - - - you're going to be part of some- crazy stuff.
You're going to be- on the winning side of- some of that crazy stuff and- you're probably going to be on- - - - the losing side of some of that- crazy stuff.
Unfortunately, - losing side last year.- fortunately, winning side this- year.
Couple other moments wher- i thought we'd be back here but- yeah, it just goes to show how- difficult it is.
And so we- certainly appreciate that - opportunity."
- - - - the saints and los angeles rams- will kick off the n-f-c - championship game, at 2-05 p-m- sunday... from the- mercedes-benz superdome.-
