It works out as well as an award ceremony script. Brees returns to the scene of his first NFL start eight years later in Sunday’s 1 p.m. game against the Bengals at PBS. In the 2002 opener, Brees hit 79 percent of his passes for the Chargers (15-of-19 for 160 yards, two TDs) in San Diego’s 34-6 victory.
How close was Brees to starting for Cincinnati that day instead of Gus Frerotte? Preparing for the 2001 draft, Bengals president Mike Brown felt Brees worthy of the fourth pick. But in a draft room just two years removed from drafting a failed quarterback at No. 3 and unconvinced that a 6-foot quarterback out of a spread offense qualified as top five stuff, his idea got no traction.
