Somebody got up on the wrong side of the bed

Drew Brees maybe isn't feeling quite as spry as he used to.
Whether or not he makes it to 45, the goal he set for himself at the beginning of training camp last season, is hard for anybody, including Brees, to say.

Brees admitted he might have been jumping the gun just a little when he set such a lofty goal for himself.

“45 is a long way away,” Brees said on ESPN’s SVP and Russillo Wednesday. “I’m 36 right now, and I know I got maybe a little overzealous last year when I threw out the number 45.”

Few NFL quarterbacks make it long past their 40th birthday. Warren Moon played until he was 44. So did Vinny Testaverde and Steve Deberg. For the most part, those final years were in backup roles, but the precedent is still there.

Brees simply felt so good before the beginning of last season that it was hard to see a finish line anywhere in sight.
Does he feel less good now?   Don't know if this helps but I have found that aspirin has become a better and better friend over the years. Might want to try a little.
