.5 percent may mean everything for Saints

Drew Brees carries himself with a quiet confidence. He is the epitome of calm in a 2-minute drill and, oh yeah, he's exactly 99.5 percent confident in himself. And for that, every New Orleans Saints fan should be happy.

In a teleconference Wednesday, Brees revealed the secret to what made his comeback from offseason labrum surgery go so well so fast.

He said it was the tiny sliver of doubt -- exactly .5 percent -- that he may never be the same QB he was before being injured in the 2005 season finale with San Diego. That was the motivation he needed to work through tortorous rehab on his shoulder. That was the motivation he needed to perfect throwing a deep ball -- one big question mark that lorded over him. And that -- that tiny, nearly impercetible feeling of doubut -- has been the motivation for the most successful Saints season in recent memory.
