Drew Brees: I’m concerned, will see hand specialist

Saints quarterback Drew Brees met with reporters after Sunday’s 27-9 loss to the Rams and discussed the injury to his right thumb that knocked him out of the game in the first quarter.

Brees said that he has gone for X-rays on his thumb. He said he didn’t know at this point how severely he’s injured and that he’ll be meeting with a hand specialist soon.

“I’m concerned. I hope it’s not significant,” Brees said, via Garland Gillen of FOX 8.

Teddy Bridgewater replaced Brees and turned in a lackluster performance over the final three-plus quarters of the game. Taysom Hill is also on the roster and Sean Payton will likely face questions about going to the jack of all trades in the event Brees is going to be out of the lineup for a while.

  1. Taysom Hill needs to play QB if Brees is hurt. Bridgewater looked just like he did in preseason and so did the offense flat. The offense is just different with Tayson at QB. He moves the chains. There is excitement in the team when he is in there.

  2. Not like this makes a difference for next week because the Hawks have OWNED the Saints for years but it certainly makes thing easier. Gives some vets a rest and some rookies a chance to play. It’s like 1/2 a bye week!

  3. Man, The Rams have done more damage to New Orleans than Katrina. Second year in a row they ended their season. Brees throws a pick in the last drive of NFC championship, and the first drive in this game. Los Angeles owns you New Orleans. You can stop squealing about PI now.

    I’d advise caution about crowing too much. I watched both Seahawks games and unless they tighten it up on the penalties and turnovers, they’re gonna give away a game they should win. Sooner or later sloppy play will get ya. And their secondary is too poor to play sloppy in other areas of the game.

  5. Rams fans talking about Breese being overrated, that’s laughable considering how your QB looked in the SB.

  6. Are the Seahawks getting ready for Teddy Bridgewater then? What a weird year so far.

    I feel bad for Drew. Always been a humble likable guy for such a competitor.

    Funny, did I miss something? I don’t remember Brees in the SB. Way I remember it, he stunk it up in the NFC Conference Championship. Lost to some guy named Goff, who went on to the SB.

  8. SB window has slammed shut for New Orleans. Quite a fitting end for a franchise behind bountygate.

    Yea, and how did he look? You Rams fans are comical. Everyone outside of LA knows Goff will amount to nothing, and trying to say Breese is overrated is moronic.

    Signed a Pats fan.

    Tb12 outlasts another quarterback. This year when Brady raises 7th trophy. Drew brees will be in the shadows.
    _____
    Son, Dak will be raising that trophy this season and have more respect for Drew Brees.

  11. The season is over for the Saints Payton has been riding Drews coat tails since day 1. Now let’s see if he’s capable of coaching without Drew there covering up his flaws

  12. I’m not saying the Saints deserved this. However, they spent all of this past offseason crying about the officiating and signing petitions to replay that NFC championship game. Sean Payton also has earned quite the reputation for berating officials game after game. Let’s call it karma. Their own fans dressed as referees for that Monday night game. Talk about a classless bunch.

    The division in now there for the Bucs to take.

    Either us or the Falcons. Be really satisfying to silence the Jameis haters if we take the division.

  14. If he is going to a specialist it seems he tore his ligament on his thumb Expect Brees to miss 6 to 8 weeks not season ending and hopefully the Saints can hold down the fort till he comes back.

  15. What is the infatuation with teddy b? He’s not a very good qb and I didn’t think he was when healthy as a Viking. He just doesn’t appear to me to be a quality starting qb. Not that Taysom Hill does either but teddy is really inaccurate has no arm and can’t read a defense at all.

    Bailed out by refs to beat Andy Dalton, Mason Rudolph, and teddy bridgwater… lucky start for the Seahawks lol

    Mason Rudolph had a spectacular day. Pete Carroll went for the win on a 4th and 1 because i don’t think he believed his defence would’ve stopped Mason Rudolph from scoring on the final drive of the game.

  17. Actually, Pete ran on 4th and 1 to close out the game because Chris Carson. Especially after those fumbles just for the confidence. It wasn’t even that close he got 3 or whatever.

    Boom, game over.

    Other than those two gimme touchdowns off of fumbles(one ended on the Seahawks 3 yard line), Seattle’s defense played very well.you probably didn’t even know that they were playing a different safety than last week. Hill had the unit looking much more cohesive than tedric Thompson did I like where things are headed.

    ====================================================

    The Hawks are garbage. They’re 2-0 because they played the 2nd worst team in the NFL in CIN and a Mason Rudolph led Steelers team.
    SEAs pass-defense is terrible on the backend and their pass rush isn’t great either. The Saints have a good shot to win that game especially given how good a game planner Sean Payton is. The following week come WK4 Arizona is going to easily beat SEA, Kyler Murray and company will pick that pass defense apart especially with SEA struggling to pressure him w/ a good solid OL in front of him & SEA unable to cover all the receivers & speed AZ will put on the field at once. The Hawks aren’t all that good of a team.

  19. Man this really sucks for Drew Brees. Good News for Saints fans is that next years draft is loaded at the QB position with possibly as many as a handful of very very gifted passers declaring for the draft & coming out of college.

    If Brees is lost for the season or any amount of real time of 10+ games the Saints should draft his replacement in the 2020 draft trading up if they have to in order to get it done. GA”s Jake Fromm reminds me a bit of Drew Brees and could be an excellent replacement for Drew, if the Saints pick in the top 10 if Brees doesnt come back they likely wouldnt even have to move up to get him. Alabama’s QB Tua Tglinanfpadsa would be awesome paired up Peyton in that offense system as well, I could see Peyton taking plays from both AZ & KC to design an offense around Tua that would work.

    With Brees now 40yrs old and on the back 9 of his NFL career if he is lost for any real time or out for the season the Saints would be better served to draft a QB in April and get a young guy in place for the long term . The short term pain of a lost season will be more than worth it once u get your guy in place for the long term.

  20. Well look at the bright side Drew if you can come back from this injury maybe they’ll stop your next home game to give you another printed award to commemorate your comeback

  21. Heard it on radio this morning. Drew Brees has ligament tear and will require surgery. Out about 6 weeks. Go Bridgewater, beat Seattle next week You can do it. You almost did it in the playoffs, if not for Blair Walsh missing that gimme field goal at the end of the game. Seattle’s defense is a lot worse than what you faced in the past. BTW, fans should know by now that the Falcons re-signed Matt Ryan instead of signing Blair Walsh.
