Training Camp Insider: Get Well Soon, Don
Don Breaux is impossible not to like. He has a great temperament, a wonderful way of speaking with a Louisiana twang, and a caring, grandfatherly nature. He's as close a Gibbs confidant as there is, and his words carry a great weight with the man running the show, but Coach Breaux goes generally overlooked around here, which is perfectly fine with him. And I like it, too, because he's always accessible while media brethren scamper elsewhere. There's nary a story on Gibbs or the offense I write without running some stuff by him, but I'm not sure I've ever seen any of the legion of television cameras out here ever turn his way. This week that might change when Don returns from the hospital following a hernia operation. I look forward to catching up with him and hope he's feeling as well as could be expected under the circumstances.
