Broken Record?


Christmas Day is all about about Jesus. Tonight (12.21) is all about Breesus. The 5-8 Saints were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday (12.20) night, but WhoDats will have plenty of reason to watch the Saints’ host the woeful Detroit Lions tonight. Number 9 is on the verge of breaking a handful of additional records.


Report: Brees Out Several Weeks


WhoDats began 2015 with Lombardi Gras dreams swirling in their head, but the path to ‘Aints is paved with good intentions. After a dismal 0-2 start, the news got worse. NFL.com is reporting that Drew Brees may be sidelined with a shoulder injury for several weeks.


Friends & Neighbors: Brees & Cooper (Video)


On the first Sunday of the NFL’s 2015 season, Eli lost and Peyton won. A third Manning (who was not Archie) also made an appearance. The Fox network gave Cooper Manning his own show. Drew Brees was the first guest on the weekend debut of “The Cooper Manning Hour.”


Brees Tall In A Forest (Video)


Drew Brees made his much hyped survivalist debut on “Running Wild With Bear Grylls” on Monday (9.07) night. The QB wrestled crocs, ate termites, and jumped from a chopper over the course of the episode.


Brees Bears With It (Video)


The national media has budgeted lots of ink for President Obama’s Alaskan adventures with television survivalist Bear Grylls. Down in SoLa, viewers are more interested in an episode featuring Drew Brees slated to run tonight.


Brees Keeps the Keys


A series of recent moves by the Saints front office have led to speculation that the Black n’ Gold are trading everyone from the beer vendor in Section 336 to Breesus himself. Today, GM Mickey Loomis made it clear that Brees is here to stay, as first reported by USA Today.


Black & Gold Untarnished in Pro Bowl


Who Dats had one last chance to watch the Black n’ Gold this season on Sunday (1.25) night. Several Saints played in the Pro Bowl, and they made the most of the night. Four of the game’s touchdowns were the work of New Orleans’ players.


Winter Brees


Ben Roethlisberger has bowed out of the Pro-Bowl. The opening means that the man we call “Breesus” will rise from the offseason to make the roster of a Pro Bowl team for the ninth time.


Today in Nola 11.19.14


Curtains open on the New Orleans Fringe Festival today bringing an extensive array of offbeat theatre to the city for your picking. Tonight at the Joy Theatre, the Suicide Girls reawaken their Burlesque after a five-year hiatus. Treme Brass Band brightens the Candlelight Lounge with their brass sounds and Walter “Wolfman” Washington brings it home at d.b.a. Back on this day in 2006, Drew Brees was setting the sixth highest throwing yard record of 510 yards during a loss to the Bengals at the Dome.


Another Baby Brees Born


Drew Brees has certainly left a legacy in New Orleans. Breesus is also leaving a legacy on the homefront. Today, the quarterback and wife Brittany announced the birth of their fourth child.
