NFL legend Drew Brees has given New Orleans Saints fans memories they will never forget. They have consistently been one of the best teams in the league, thanks to the talents of the future Hall of Famer. However, Drew Brees’ significant decision not to retire last year may have actually ruined Saints fans’ hopes and dreams, as it potentially kept the team from winning a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Drew Brees has had a ton of success with the Saints. He is a 13-time Pro Bowl selection (one came with the Chargers), a two-time AP Offensive Player of the Year, and he led the Saints to a Super Bowl title in 2009. This is all in addition to the fact that Brees is No. 1 in NFL history in passing yards and No. 2 in passing touchdowns.
However, in 2019, the Saints had yet another upsetting playoff loss, and Brees missed five games throughout the season. This led to some people thinking that the future Hall of Famer would call it quits and would retire.
Drew Brees, though, elected not to retire after the 2019 season, and — again — led the Saints to a ton of success in 2020.
He did, however, miss four games again, and they lost in the divisional round to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So, since they didn’t get to a Super Bowl or even a conference championship game, was returning really worth it for him?
It’s hard to say for sure. But his decision potentially kept Saints fans from celebrating a Super Bowl title during the 2020 season.

Tom Brady had a remarkable season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 and eventually won his seventh Super Bowl.
However, he could have potentially won the title with the Saints.
“If [Drew Brees] hadn’t come back (in 2020), I really believe that there’s a chance that Tom Brady would’ve been the Saints’ quarterback this year,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on the Feb. 22 episode of The Rich Eisen Show.
Well, that’s interesting.
Sure, Drew Brees still played well in 2020. He did not play at the level Brady played at, though. Tom Brady threw for 4,633 yards, 40 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions, and then eventually led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a win in the Super Bowl.
Would Tom Brady have won that Super Bowl with the Saints had he gone there? Obviously, we don’t know that for sure, but knowing how stacked the Saints’ roster is, there’s a pretty good chance that he would have.
