After the New Orleans Saints' disappointing loss to Tampa Bay Sunday, many fans are wondering: Just how much of an impact did quarterback Drew Brees' shoulder have on the outcome?
Brees was sacked early in the second quarter and came up shaking his arm. After the game, Brees somewhat grudgingly admitted that his shoulder was an issue and affected some throws later in the game. In a post-game interview with WWL, Brees said that he will be "fine."
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm fine," he told WWL. "Everybody gets dinged up throughout the course of a game, season, what have you. I'll battle through and be fine."
But even if Brees' shoulder is fine, the Saints have a long way to go if they want to come back from an 0-2 start and make the playoffs this year.
Drew Brees walked through the locker room today, declined to talk. Nothing out of the ordinary, not his normal day to talk— Joel A. Erickson (@JoelAErickson) September 21, 2015
