He said, “He knows football. I mean, he knows about a lot of things. I mean, he’s just, he’s just one of those guys that can hear something one time and he’s got it. You know, there are some guys who you know need to be able to you know rep something a few times before it becomes ingrained.”

“And I think I mean listen, I’m kind of one of those guys you know, I’m a rep guy like reps are like, you know, feeling timing and rhythm and just doing it kind of over and over again to to get the the feel of something or the confidence with something. And Alvin is one of those guys who you can just tell him something, you know, he doesn’t necessarily even need to get out there and rep it and he’s got it. You know, he’ll remember it, he’ll retain it. And I think that’s just that’s a rare trait,” Brees said earlier today.
