Because he's Drew Freaking Brees. He's a warrior and fierce competitor. No one wanted him to be back out there more than he did. But he's human and he's hurt. He tried but couldn't even grip the ball.
Regardless we need to prepare ourselves. If the rumblings are true, he's torn a ligament and will be out for a while. Depending on the severity, rehab and recovery, it could even be his last game as a Saint. That's a hard pill to swallow.
The way Brees came out after halftime, something tells me he's not going out like that. Worst case scenario, he'll be back next year. Assuming he can sign a contract without his right thumb.

That's quite a reply.
It's encouraging & depressing at the same time.
Right now I'm just trying to prepare myself for anything.

Well, we wouldn't have to tank for him. We could actually just wait till the 3rd round for him.

Covet a spread guy with known issues with pro-style offense.. Bold move guys. This isn't college fellas.
At this rate he won't be available in the 3rd round....thanks kiper.

You spelled Joe Burrow wrong.

Could LSU’s Joe Burrow end up as the top quarterback prospect in the 2020 class?
It’s not a farfetched idea according to Pro Football Focus, which notes that he could pass not just Oregon’s Justin Herbert, but also Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, generally considered the likely No. 1 pick in next April’s NFL Draft.

PFF: Joe Burrow could pass Herbert, Tagovailoa as NFL prospect

Mitch Trashbriski got drafted ahead of Mahomes and Watson.

Mayfield, Darnold, Rosen, and Allen got draft way ahead of Lamar Jackson.

I hope you really understand the theme here.


Oh, believe me, i understand the ‘theme’ 100%.

My point was to highlight how silly it was of you to be so dismissive of Burrow in your post a few days ago, to the point where you think it’s inconceivable that someone like Burrow could ever even be discussed alongside someone like Tua, in terms of draftability .. I hope you understand THAT theme.

Going from 5th Round Burrow 2018 to 2019 1st overall Burrow after just 3 games isn't a bit much? I rather he be underrated, because it gives him a chance to fall to a great team like a Mahomes, Watson, or Jackson.

And it's already been all but confirmed that Dolphin are 100% tanking to get Tua 1st overall.

So, stop the pissing contest. This is Saints forum, not Tiger dropping or a Joe Burrow forum. Him being underrated benefits us in the drafting process ..

Love Drew! Just think panicking before having all of the facts is laughable.
The facts of an injury were obvious to professionals that knew. And the fact, one professional I know, did not know the level of severity, but knew it would be a six to eight week issue, or worse, was not laughable. Sometimes, it is best just not to reply to posts you happen to disagree with, by having a somewhat condescending tone added in, with a LOL. It implies the poster does not know what he/she is talking about.
