Drew Brees says his thumb is getting stronger every day

All those thumb exercises seem to be working.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who was seen repeatedly during Sunday night’s win over the Cowboys flexing his surgically-repaired thumb on the sideline, tells WWL radio that his thumb is getting stronger every day.

Via Garland Gillen of WVUE-TV, Brees said that he can now brush his teeth, floss his teeth, and pick up a glass of water. Brees added that he couldn’t do those things only a few days ago.

Brees originally expected to miss six weeks after surgery to repair a thumb that was injured in Week Two against the Rams. He’s been pushing to get back even sooner than that.

Meanwhile, the Saints have won two straight games without Brees, beating the Seahawks in Seattle and the Cowboys in New Orleans.

  1. And why does Brees get no flak for his team beating Seattle and Dallas without him? if Brady was out and the Pats won 2 in a row, you know Kellerman would be “YA SEE, Belichick wins with ANYONE. Stick ME back there and its an easy 4TD pass game”

  2. This team is not winning the super bowl with or without Brees. Same story, different season.

  3. Easy fella take the six weeks come back strong after the bye and make a run for the championship

    It’s almost like New Orleans (and every other NFL team) has a system.

  5. Brees has been around he realizes owners will begin to think we are paying this guy big dollars…And we are winning paying this guy way less hmmmmm why do we need this high priced guy?…I’ll bet Brees is working hard.

  6. Forget the thumb if I were a Saints fan I’d be worried about his arm that thing looked like a loose piece of spaghetti last year at the end of the year, and in the playoffs. Couldn’t throw the deep ball…Ahh but let’s not let the facts get in the way now it interferes with our stupid argument that somehow the Saints are the best team in the NFC….Oh but we were robbed by the refs waaah waah waah

    He better hurry back. If his team keeps winning he will be without a job.

    The Saints can win EVERY game while Brees is out – the second he’s healthy, he’s the starter.

  8. Saints fans I have some milk and cookies for all of you, and I’ve stocked up with extras because you’ll be whining about something else come playoff time when you’re sitting at home – Again – watching someone else win the Superbowl.

  9. Just remember, The Saints won against Dallas without scoring a TD. That will not take you very far in the playoffs.
