Annotation Despite a record-breaking career at Purdue University, quarterback Drew Brees was dismissed by many NFL scouts and was benched in favor of Doug Flutie during his stint with the San Diego Chargers. Then, in the final game of the 2005 season, Brees suffered a devastating shoulder injury which put his career in jeopardy. But Brees found a home in a city that knew all about adversity--New Orleans, which was still reeling in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Emerging as one the league's top stars, Brees won the 2009 Offensive Player of the Year award and, more importantly, led his team to the Super Bowl XLIV title. In this inspirational memoir, Brees relives the most crucial moments of his life and his career to reveal how he has used the doubts of others to fuel his own success.
