Drew Brees talks 'Madden NFL 11'
By ESPN.com staff
What's the best thing about being a video game quarterback as opposed to playing the position in real life?
That's what ESPN's Jon Robinson asked "Madden NFL 11" cover boy and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees.
"No pain," Brees says with a laugh. "I'm not worried about getting hit in 'Madden.' It's a little different when you're out there for real and you have to be aware of who is trying to knock your head off. If I get hit in the game, all that happens is my controller shakes."
In Robinson's interview with Brees, he asked the Saints quarterback it meant more to be on the cover of "Madden" this year because the fans voted for him.
"Absolutely. This game is driven by the fans, so it means so much more to me and to all the Saints players because we understand the bond we've had with our fans and with our city," Brees said. "Certainly when the fans have spoken, that means so much. I think it's a great way to continue to highlight New Orleans and the Saints organization and what we've been able to accomplish and the direction we're still headed."
