There could be a postseason, after all, for Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
With his team out of the playoffs and Brees omitted from the NFC Pro Bowl roster, Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune points out that Brees could be saying “aloha” to Hawaii now that Robert Griffin III has another knee injury.
Brees was named an alternate for the NFC team, but as Holder points out it wasn’t clear whether he’s the first alternate.
The other two NFC quarterbacks are Matt Ryan of the Falcons and Aaron Rodgers of the Packers. If either of their teams qualify for the Super Bowl, another replacement will be needed.
Brees provided one of the only interesting moments in last year’s game, when he tried to drop kick an extra point.
I can’t remember if it was good. I can remember that watching the game wasn’t.
