New Orleans' Super Bowl Hopes Now Rest on Teddy Bridgewater Following Drew Brees' Injury

By By Mark Ross | Athlon Sports

In March, the New Orleans Saints made Teddy Bridgewater the highest-paid backup quarterback in the NFL. With Drew Brees now sidelined for at least the next six weeks, the Saints (1-1) will find out what kind of return they will get on their investment.

Brees suffered a thumb injury in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams when his hand made contact with defensive tackle Aaron Donald's hand after throwing a pass. After the game, the fear was that he had torn a ligament in his thumb on his throwing hand, a diagnosis that was confirmed by a hand specialist.

Brees underwent thumb surgery and is expected to miss anywhere from six to eight weeks. His absence could be longer, depending on the surgery, his recovery, and whether New Orleans places him on injured reserve.

Spera: Is Drew Brees' injury a calamity of Biblical proportions or a Saints rallying cry?

That God-awful sound reverberating all the way from the West Coast last Sunday?

It was the mass rending of Black & Gold garments, as the Who Dat Nation plunged into mourning.

“Misery” was the one-word headline on the front page of Monday’s morning-after newspaper. “Rammed” would have also worked.

In last season’s Cinderella story with a sad ending, the Rams were the evil stepsisters who didn’t let the Saints go to the ball/bowl.

It was a bad week to be a fan of the New Orleans Saints. The New Orleans Saints lost the game, but they might have lost far more than that.

The loss dropped the Panthers to 0-2. Sunday afternoon, the New Orleans Saints (1-0) lost to the Los Angeles Rams 27-9, but ended up...

Overcoming the loss of Brees doesn’t fall exclusively on Teddy Bridgewater

  • News source: Les East
  • Replies: 0
Drew Brees’ thumb injury apparently requires surgery that will sideline him for roughly six weeks.

Unless a second opinion produces a drastically different diagnosis than the first, Teddy Bridgewater will be the New Orleans Saints starting quarterback for the foreseeable future.

But that doesn’t mean Bridgewater is solely responsible for mitigating the loss, though he will be primarily responsible.

It doesn’t mean the difference in performance between Brees – who...
