New Orleans Saints quarterbacks best quote from the 2021 season:
I was just thankful. These opportunities don't come too often. A whole year of not starting a football game. That's what I said in our team prayer, like, 'Lord, thank you for this opportunity.' He's the one that did it, the lord did it for me. And I missed it man. I missed going out there and leading the pack. That's fun, that's fun stuff. Jameis Winston
