Was Brees injured at end of season?
Seen speculation but never confirmed if Brees has some injury issues down the stretch...: certainly his play went way down, so it was either defenses all of a sudden learned how to stop our offense, or Brees was hurt..

Atlanta hit on interception. Wasn’t the same after that.

As you can see, Brees comes in to make a tackle, and probably takes the biggest hit for him all season. I love Drew, but really look at that GIF. The guy Drew hit had his eye on him the entire time, and was ready for it. Drew lit himself up on that one.

The O line was beat up and he wasn't getting the same protection.

He definitely got hurt in Atlanta game ... probably fricked up his shoulder on that tackle

The Dallas game where he got beat up and harassed all game didn’t help any either

Fun fact: earlier on that play is ANOTHER missed pass interference call.

Ballsy play. Love the guy and I give him credit, but if he just takes a dive there...what could have been. Around that game he was really being talked about ahead of Mahomes for MVP. Super bowl victory, etc.


It’s the only thing that makes sense from being THAT dominant to being average the rest of the way.

"I thought that was against the Eagles? He threw an int, and for like 170 yards and should have had a second int against Atlanta, 2nd game. Rumor according to a friend of mine who told me the other day his first int against Atlanta on thanksgiving he got hurt when being blocked by a falcons player and organization kept it hush."

That was a response of mine awhile back on other board. No idea what I was speaking of regarding the Eagles though. My friend does some work for the Saints and also some of the colleges, not directly with players or coaches though but does see them and knows others with the Saints brass.

He may have injured himself on that attempted tackle but he led with his left shoulder which shouldn't have bothered his passing motion seeing that he throws with his Right Arm. He absolutely had issues pushing the ball down field the last 1/4 of the regular season & the playoffs.

Especially in the NFCCG. Just look at what should have been the Game/NFCC/Super Bowl ticket punched sealing bomb to Ted Ginn. Brees didn't appear to confident that he could throw it that far. He did a major double clutch before heaving it with everything he had. He launched a serious moon ball that took forever to get down to TG & was under thrown. If TG doesn't do a great job of fighting for the ball between 2 DBs and making a clutch catch it very well could have been picked.

Yeah that’s not how any of that works. If Drew injured his left shoulder, pec, ribs, it will most definitely affect his throwing motion.

Supposedly he fricked his back up pretty bad

And for you pervs, not his backup QB

Brees before that hit:

2,964 Yds, (257/334 77%) 25 TDs, 1 Int (127 rating)
Per Game Avg : 296 yards (26/33) 2.5 TDS, .1 Int
8.9 yards gained per pass attempt

Brees after that hit:

1,028 Yds, (107/155 69%) 7 TDs, 4 Ints (91.5 rating)
Per Game Avg : 205 yards (21/31) 1.4 TDs, .8 Int
6.6 yards gained per pass attempt


After the hit it becomes apparent that Drew and the staff knew something was off. We threw it less, and not nearly as far downfield when we did. Drew just was not himself, and the injury was worse than "just banged up".



His being injured gives me a lot of hope for next season. Until I learned that he got so messed up against the Falcons (hard to watch that GIF and see these stats and think otherwise) I was worried he had hit the age-wall.

Now I am confident we are ready for another Superbowl run in 2019.

It’s worth noting that his stats steadily improved over the final six games and in the playoffs which gives further credence to the idea that he got hurt against ATL

Yep. That was a really dumb move on his part, but it is a relief knowing he should be at his pre-injury playing level for the start of this season.

I was at that game and commented on it immediately after. You could tell something wasn't right by the way he came off of the field and how he was on the sidelines the rest of the night.

And that hit never should have happened. The guy was down by contact at the spot of the INT. Not to mention he molested Kirkwood before making the INT.
