It was no secret that Drew Brees was close to signing with the Miami Dolphins back in 2006. Ultimately, the team made a huge mistake and passed over him because they were scared off by his shoulder injury. While Brees was talking with Miami, Cowboys interim head coach Jason Garrett was the quarterbacks coach for the ‘Phins.

After all of the talking, Brees came away very impressed with Garrett .

“One of the things I really liked about Miami was Jason Garrett,” Brees said.

“First of all, he played the quarterback position in the NFL,” Brees said. “I think that any time you have a guy that’s played this position at the highest level, they just get it. They understand what you’re thinking and what you’re feeling and what you’re seeing and all that stuff, so that helps.

“Also, I just think he seemed like a guy who was very much focused on the fundamentals of playing the quarterback position and preparation and what goes into it from a mental standpoint. He just seemed like the kind of guy who would help you become a much better player.”

Garrett has done a lot in just two weeks as the Cowboys interim coach. He will be going into the Thanksgiving game with his toughest test he’s faced since being the leading man.
