Brees was one of the best pure passers that the NFL ever saw. The former Saints quarterback enjoyed the bulk of his career in New Orleans and set many records. However, life wasn’t always easy for the Dallas native because he endured cruel bullying as a child. Brees had a birthmark on his face and it made him an easy target.
Some children would wilt but Brees was made of sterner stuff and turned it into something positive. He channeled the negative energy into his football and became a massive star. Meanwhile, Brees also returned from the depths of Hell when he suffered a near career-ending injury in San Diego (via The Sporting News).
