Drew Brees, Russell Wilson Share Great Respect Between Each Other
When the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks meet up on Monday Night Football, it will be the first time Drew Brees and Russell Wilson will face each other. The two quarterbacks are at different stages in their career and yet they have some similarities. Brees is the seasoned veteran and one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. Wilson is the second-year sensation that burst onto the scene during his rookie season and is making a name for himself as one of the best young quarterbacks in the league.
Brees has won a Super Bowl and was named Super Bowl MVP, and Wilson wants what Brees has, and despite being in just his second season, is a lot closer to a Super Bowl than many players who have played the game. One interesting aspect about these two great quarterbacks is the amount of respect they have for one another.
Wilson met Brees last season at the Pro Bowl and it is safe to say that he was a bit star struck. Wilson could be seen following Brees everywhere and just soaking in the experience of meeting his idol. Wilson has often said that Brees is his icon and he studies his game religiously. Perhaps that is why Wilson has been able to find success in the NFL since he is emulating Brees’ game — not a bad quarterback to mimic.
It would make sense that Wilson would look up to Brees because not only is he a great man on the field, but off the field as well. Also, Brees and Wilson are only about 6-feet tall, so Wilson has looked to Brees as if to say, “if he can do it, I can do it.” During their first meeting at last year’s Pro Bowl, Wilson made an impression on Brees too.
Brees recalls the first time he met Wilson and said that he “could not have been more impressed” and that he “thinks very highly of him, not only as a player, but as a person.” Brees and Wilson have even exchanged numbers and text each other now and then to check up on each other.
It is always nice when two fierce competitors share a mutual respect for each other and it just makes their matchup all the more enticing. However, when these two meet on Monday night, they will be looking to beat one another, but the respect will still be there.
