The New Orleans Saints aren’t exactly used to playing against Hall of Fame Quarterbacks in their division, but that’s all going to change during the 2020 season thanks to Tom Brady’s off-season move to Tampa Bay.
Not to mention, Brady’s favorite target Rob Gronkowski coming out of retirement to join TB12, making the Saints’ road to their fourth straight NFC South title that much tougher.
The division still runs through New Orleans until further notice and the Saints just so happen to have a Hall of Fame QB of their own.
Saints linebacker Demario Davis spoke to the media in his hometown of Brandon this afternoon, unafraid of picking favorites when it comes to Brady versus Brees. “I got excited because I get to play them two times a year, and I mean he’s one of – if not the – greatest quarterbacks in the game. I’m a little biased. I think the greatest quarterback in the game is on my team. But you always want to play the best. I think that’s how you measure how good you are, and you’ve got to go against the best. So to have the opportunity to go against one of the greatest – if not the greatest quarterback – to ever play the game, and to go against one of the greatest tight ends to ever play the game, I think that’s an opportunity that anybody that likes to compete would look forward to.”
The Saints open the 2020 season at home against the Buccaneers on September 13th. They return the favor on November 8th for a Sunday Night showdown in Tampa Bay.
