Photo shot on 2/07/10 --- Trax #00020378a --- Slug: SuperBowl ---New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (9) savors the moment after the New Orleans Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami Gardens, Fla., Sunday, Feb. 7, 2010. Brees was voted Superbowl MVP.

On if he thinks he’ll win another Super Bowl: “Very convinced. It’s what drives me. It’s what keeps me going. I love this game for so many reasons. The opportunity to have played it for going on 15 years is rare, it’s unique. I want to continue to play for absolutely as long as I can. As long as I’m having fun, playing at a high level, and I’m able to stay healthy, why not play this game? It’s a blessing.”

On if he can play until he’s 45: “Do I think that’s possible? Yes, absolutely. Could that happen? Yes. Would I love for that to happen? Yes. I’m not naive. I know I’m on a series of one-year contracts just like everybody else in the league. I feel like I can find that juice.”

On how close the Saints are to winning a Super Bowl: “I feel like we can build it, yeah. Listen, there’s a lot of work to be done. I’m not going to sit here in June and say that we’re where we need to be. We still have a lot of work to do. I do feel like we do have all the pieces in place. We have the ability to build the best team that we’ve had. It’s not easy and it takes a lot of work, a ton of work. As long as we can maintain that mindset of just continue to get better each and every day, we have a shot.”
