Re: Report: Drew Brees has torn plantar fascia in right foot

We should play the rookie... It would be stupid not to, but knowing this team we'll end up seeing Brees out there or Flynn showing us why he wasn't on a roster less than a month ago.

The fact that Brees was clearly hurt but still left in the game shows my how dumb the coaching staff on this team is. Payton has lost his touch on reality and needs to go. If not for the ring he'd likely be gone already, but we're talking about something that happened almost 7 years ago now...

I see everyone talking Flynn and Grayson. What happened to Luke in the rotation?

Re: Report: Drew Brees has torn plantar fascia in right foot

They will have to bind Drew on the sideline to keep him from playing, he was having an out-of-body the one game he had to sit out.
It is the smart thing to do, not worth risking permanent injury to his 36 year old body. Let Flynn play and sub in Grayson for some experience.

I don't disagree, but I also don't see this as "throwing him into the lions den". It's more like a live audition to see what the kid has. Playoffs are out of reach anyway so its not like he's carrying the franchise on his back. I don't believe Grayson is ready to be a starter yet, but I'd love to see what he may be capable of doing in a game situation. Just my thoughts......

Kind of read my mind!! I liked how Grayson looked(even with limited snaps) in pre-season. Our O isn't bad and he's mobile with a cannon of an arm. But the main thing was his poise in the pocket. The kid impresses me with a 3rd string O behind him then.

Good point. And I'm not against starting Grayson, I'd love to see him perform. I just don't think that its a no-brainer that he should. The coaches probably know if he's ready or not.

But we all know, barring amputation, that Drew Brees will be starting the next 2 games.

Re: Report: Drew Brees has torn plantar fascia in right foot

You all are crazy if you think Drew is going to let someone else start the last 2 games. You can't make the foot injury any worse by playing on it.
It's just how well you can handle the pain. If anything this injury to Drew might make them throw the quick slants that I've been wanting to see since we drafted Cooks. It could also be quite possible this Sunday could be Drew's last home game in a Saints uniform. I bet first beer he plays.

It's his plant foot throwing the ball. I don't see Payton risking more injury. He can't run and the Jags have a good D. Brees could get hurt alot worst. It takes a long time for this to heal, got to look at next season. I agree Brees might want to play but he(or the Saints) shouldn't throw caution into the wind with just 5 wins ,it's not worth it.
