NEW ORLEANS (AP) Drew Brees, perhaps only half joking, explains that fatherhood and having a son who is highly critical of his living room passing accuracy, is what has kept the Saints' record-setting quarterback sharp as he's approached his 40th birthday.
"My kids are what make me be better," Brees began, describing how his son, Callen, likes to make diving catches on the couch. "He always tells me I am not throwing it in the right place. ... He wants like the outstretched catch on the corner of the couch. They are my toughest critics. They keep me honest."
