New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees posted an emotional letter to fans on Instagram on Monday.

Brees said that he’s spent the last week navigating his disappointment and heartbreak after losing the NFC Championship game to the Los Angeles Rams. He also thanked fans for their continued enthusiastic and vocal support.

“The longer I play I realize that we truly are one heartbeat with our fans. Our success is your success. Our disappointment is your disappointment. We are inspired by one another to accomplish things far greater than what we could ever do on our own. Everything that has ever happened to this community, we have bonded together, galvanized and leaped forward every time.”

It’s no secret that Saints fans have a unique bond with their team. Brees called on fans to now turn that bond, passion, and emotion towards improving other areas of their lives.

“Pour that passion and emotion into your families and communities. Inspire others with your focus & determination and positive outlook. This will make us stronger, this will bond us tighter, this will be a source for our success in the future.”
