This has got to be my FAVORITE super bowl pic yet! MVP Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints celebrates the win with his son Baylen on the field.
“We played for so much more than ourselves — we played for our city,” Brees said. “We played for the entire Gulf Coast region. We played for the entire ‘Who Dat Nation.’ “
In a record-setting performance, Brees outdueled Manning, a four-time league MVP, and was named Super Bowl MVP. The 31-year-old Saints quarterback finished 32-for-39 for 288 yards and tied the Super Bowl record for largest deficit overcome when New Orleans wiped out a 10-0 first-quarter Indianapolis lead.
Brees, who finished the game with 10 consecutive completions, set the Super Bowl record for highest completion percentage (82.1) and tied Tom Brady’s 2004 record for Super Bowl completions. Brees rallied the Saints with second-half scoring passes to running back Pierre Thomas and tight end Jeremy Shockey.
Gotta give credit where credit’s due! The Saints did THAT! So I guess now y’all can stop asking ‘Who dat’… *wishful thinking*
