Oh, I thought you were going to say his ribs broke spontaneously. But mountain climbing in the South is legit.I have close sources inside the organization that are also saying Brees' injury wasn't related to football but the hit just worsened the condition. Brees was really injured mountain climbing south of New Orleans the previous week.
Home games may not mean much, but a 1st rd bye to recover while your opponent is getting more beat up is still going to be as valuable as ever. No chance a team would rather be the 5 than the 1.I'm not too worried about winning the NFC South now that Drew is injured. We haven't really discussed it much yet, but I can see a scenario toward the end of the season where the #1 seed is out of reach, and both the Saints and Bucs consider resting players and jocking for the 5th seed to play the NFC East winner first - instead of winning the NFC South and facing an NFC West team first game or a Vikings team that just squeeks into the playoffs.. Home games this year are pretty much meaningless other than the travel aspect.
In my post I qualified it by saying, "where the #1 seed is out of reach", so obviously the #1 seed would not be in play in that scenario. It would be the choice between the #2 or #3 seed or #5 seed.Home games may not mean much, but a 1st rd bye to recover while your opponent is getting more beat up is still going to be as valuable as ever.

Hands might be part of it but it is also because he runs into contact and tries to stay up.It’s my first post here so don’t kill me
I am really excited to see how Tysom is gonna play. If it works then he should gain some confidence and when Brees comes back for the playoffs the Swiss Army knife should be even more effective due to this chance. It’s a big if but it’s worth trying
for it to work he doesn’t need to be a great passer but he just has to be ok and should be careful with the ball. Having all the weapons around him should help and then his ability to run should also pay some dividends
I read somewhere that he has really small hands and hence all the fumbles. Hopefully it’s not really an issue
