Rumors of Drew Brees in a car accident were not true


Apparently there were rumors that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was in a car accident and it had people on the internet around New Orleans worried. Of course it would, Drew is a good guy and is a hero in the community, plus all the hopes of the Saints being a contender rely on him lining up under center.

Brees cleared up the rumors of the accident over twitter:

Just another one of those bogus stories floating around the twitterverse. For some reason, twitter likes to kill off people, get them in car accidents and all kinds of other shenanigans. That is how social media works. He one person to believe you and see if you can get multiple people to spread that rumor around until it becomes viral. Oh, that interweb. Maybe it was someone from New England that was trying to deflect the attention for a bit.

Brees is doing good though. The New Orleans fans can take a big sigh of relief and the rest of the fantasy football world can be happy as well.

    My Heart, MY HEART, my whole life flashed in front of me when I saw the headlines and with shaking hands I finally made it to this story, which exposed it all as a hoax. If I find out who started it, I’ll sue. You cannot believe how relieved I am. Okay, with Sean back, Drew under center, and the rest of Saints, with their fans ready & waiting to take on the world. Let’s have some football; I’m counting down the time for the season to start. Geaux Saints, Love my Crescent City

    He one person? What does that mean? Maybe this person from New England can do you a favor and point out your lack of the English language. What can one expect from the ‘interweb’ anyway.
