The Raiders and Saints turned in no new positive coronavirus tests.
In Part 1, we saw that teams who let their famous quarterbacks go early watched them lead their new franchise to postseason success; in turn, their heir successors quickly flourished, and the team remained prosperous for years thereafter. In Part 2, we saw that teams who held on to their star until the bitter end often found short-term success, but the franchise suffered long-term consequences. For the final part of this series, we turn to our own, Drew Brees.
The New Orleans Saints look like they will have a difficult time on offense Sunday morning. Michael Thomas’s game status was in doubt all week after injuring his hamstring in practice, but then Emmanuel Sanders was added to the Reserve/Covid list Friday afternoon. Now, both of the Saints star receivers will miss Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, with Sanders also scheduled to miss next week’s game against the Chicago Bears as well.
