Next man up.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is expected to miss multiple weeks with broken ribs and a collapsed lung, so Sean Payton and the Saints offense will likely be turning to former #1 overall pick Jameis Winston to take the lead. With Jameis Winston rightfully getting a lot of attention in all of this news, the Who Dat Nation took to Twitter to express their thoughts on the Drew Brees injury news. Is Drew Brees done? Is it Jameis’s time, or possibly Taysom Hill?
Grief has a strange way of affecting people, so with that in mind, here are some of the best social media reactions from yesterday’s devastating news:
Saints’ QB Drew Brees has multiple rib fractures on both sides of his chest and a collapsed lung on the right side, per @WerderEdESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 16, 2020
From Winston's standpoint, this is exactly why he came to the #Saints. He came here to learn under Drew and Sean, to hopefully get an opportunity to show the NFL he can be smarter with the football, and then to try to cash in this offseason.— Canal St. Chronicles (@SaintsCSC) November 16, 2020
Here's your chance, @Jaboowins. pic.twitter.com/O6y5E9G2PF
How tf did he even get on the field this week? Absolute machine. https://t.co/me4FriinuH— Ross Jackson (@RossJacksonNOLA) November 16, 2020
People said that same thing when Teddy had to come in and start and the team went 5-0.— Deuce Windham (@RevDeuceWindham) November 16, 2020
I'm not saying the #Saints do that again, but, Brees isn't the end-all-be-all of QB play. Best chance to win SB? Yes.
Can you win without him? Also, yes. https://t.co/5TwJwxAl6p

No kidding Brees was sad yesterday— Ralph Malbrough (@SaintsForecast) November 16, 2020
Sorry I couldn’t hear you over Kamara’s 9th td this year.. https://t.co/aVNnIdbaev— Kay Adams (@heykayadams) November 15, 2020
Lost in the Brees injury is the fact that Brady likely carries the TD record now.— Christopher Dunnells (@ChrisDunnells) November 16, 2020

Drew Brees— Rod Walker (@RodWalkerNola) November 16, 2020
Fractured ribs ✅
Collapsed lung ✅
Plenty of heart ✅
This is the reason why the Saints signed Jameis Winston: the opportunity to step in if needed for Drew Brees and keep this team on track.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) November 16, 2020
Jameis Winston signed with the Saints for development and the chance to reset his FA value if he got a chance to play at all. A huge spot.
Drew Brees has fractured ribs & a collapsed lung. Heal Drew. Jameis Winston (in tandem with Taysom Hill) will lead us to the playoffs in 6 weeks. Then Drew Brees will return for a playoff run to the Super Bowl. #WhoDatNation @Saints @gmfb @NFL— Wendell Pierce (@WendellPierce) November 16, 2020
Have to LOVE the idiotic media this summer who attacked .@drewbrees and his love for his guys on the @Saints when Brees questioned that idiotic FLAG story...DUDE HAS CRACKED RIBS AND A COLLAPSED LUNG!!...Warrior!!— Dan Sileo (@DanSileoShow) November 17, 2020
