Nah, this is setting up the curtain call. Brees will find his way back to the Saints come playoff time and game manage a great Saints team to a SB win, then ride off into the sunset...

 6 weeks is the healing time typically, so if they make the playoffs..... chances are it will be on the road to play whoever and Brees will be ready then. Can they make the playoffs without him though? 12-4  or maybe 11-5 is what I expect, so they could get in.

We definitely can make the playoffs without him, as long as Jameis doesn’t kill us with picks.  
 

Which may be asking too much, but I feel Payton will get the best out of Jameis, or at least keep the worst at bay.  
 

Our backup QB situation last several years has been great.

almost like their system is pretty great for QBs. even average ones.

 An average starting QB is an insanely good backup QB.

That sounds worse than when Kevin Kolb had a detached sternum.

if he returns, do the saints change their plays to mostly shorter throws to prevent Breed from being hit much if at all?

The difference between 41 and 31 is an injury that requires no time to be missed at 31 suddenly requires 2-3 months at 41? 

I'm just talking about the idea that this is it for him. Clearly he's going to miss time, but this injury isn't as bad as it sounds on the surface. 

Yes. That is the point. Brees should miss 3-4 weeks. (mainly because broken ribs take 3-6 weeks to heal in normal circumstances)

I know quite a few Saints fans that were pretty hard on him. But the truth is that the 49ers defense had a really good gameplan and were giving the Saints a ton of trouble (Brees included). It was really the Saints defense and special teams that was the difference in the outcome.

The 9ers laid out the game plan for the Falcons this week on how to beat them. THe problem is that the 9ers also have way more talent.

If I was a betting man...I think I'd put money on the Falcons. The Saints are definitely more talented, but with the change at QB and the fact that the Falcons defense has played the Saints well in recent year...I think that it's a good bet.

IDK man. The Falcons will get after Jameis. Taysom is way overrated by well, everyone. And I think they can create pressure. But I'm less enthused about our offense against y'all's defense. Jordan has our number and the Falcons still have Dirk Koetter at OC.
