Leading two TD drives with 11 broken ribs and a collapsed lung might be one of the greatest accomplishment of his life. Incredible

Not to be nit picky, but I don't think

6 more rib fractures.


necessarily equates to

quote:

11 broken ribs


Could have been additional fractures on some of the same ribs.

Still, Brees is a tough mofo to stay in the game after sustaining those.

So with 46% of his ribs broken and a punctured lung he still played almost 9 minutes to end the second half with a scoring drive.

I hear ya. NOLA.com also saying 11. 8 on left side, 3 on right

“New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has 11 total fractured ribs, which is six more than were originally diagnosed as broken, he told ESPN's Ed Werder on Saturday. “

“Brees told Werder that eight of the rib fractures are on his left side — which were broken against the 49ers — and three are on his right side. The broken ribs on Brees' right side were likely injured against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. “

I thought the Saints fired all their shitty doctors.

It only took two weeks to find all of his broken ribs.

Brees is always gonna be Brees

from the NOLA.com article

quote:

Even with those newly-discovered breaks, Brees told Werder that his doctors have been encouraged by his progress — specifically improvement in lung function and the continued dissipation of the pneumothorax" he sustained against the San Francisco 49ers.

Brees, who was placed on the injured reserve Friday, told Werder that he's hopeful to make a return to the field "as soon as he's eligible" for the Saints' Week 14 game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 20.


ETA: that's the bare minimum since Drew's currently on IR... just 3 missed games

Thought they had gotten rid of those doctors a couple of years ago.

It has been confirmed multiple times. Multiple fractures on the same rib? Dumbest shite I’ve ever heard

Men 24 women 23 which leads to my joke for the day. God tells Adam He’s going to make him a companion. She’s going to cook and clean for him and always be loyal. Adam says that sounds good, how much will that cost me? God says, one arm. Adam replies, that’s pretty steep. What can I get for a rib?

Not only is the sex-based rib variance a myth, but you got it wrong based on the context of the joke. Well done
