Uggghhh - season could have ended yesterday

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm sure this happens more than I would want to think about and maybe there's not a replay to show it, but we had a VERY close call yesterday on Brees. I'm just now seeing the game. If you look ...

Uggghhh - season could have ended yesterday

I'm sure this happens more than I would want to think about and maybe there's not a replay to show it, but we had a VERY close call yesterday on Brees.


I'm just now seeing the game. If you look at the replay on the 2nd and 7 completion to Colston (Colston's first catch) - right after Bills CB McKelvin is being tended to for an injury - they show one of the Bills players headed right into Drew's leg. Happened about 2:30 to go in the first quarter.

That had ACL tear written all over it. Thankfully he picked up his foot and it was not planted when he got hit.



That fraction of a difference in balance very well could have saved the season...

But it didn't, so why worry about it?

Just haven't seen so many bad licks and near injuries on him in a LONG time.

O line is getting better, but still needs to step up its game...

No worries drew could go out there in a wheel chair and still beat teams.

Uh-oh! Here comes Goodell. Illegal participation or Equipment violation?

Drew's season could end during a walk-thru in practice.

Drew could also have had his acl torn out by a disgruntled Jimmy Johns bicycle delivery-boy

If you watch closely, a few plays later, another hit on Drew below the knees. I made a comment about the Bills targeting Drews knees during the live chat.

He could have fallen off of a Super Bowl float, or drowned in Matt RyNs tears.
