Congratulations to Drew Brees, the NFL’s new all-time passing yards leader. This is a story about how medical matters and how hard work makes a difference. In this case a failed physical changed the course of the two franchises, helped resurrect a hurricane-ravaged region and changed the landscape of college football.
I feel like an ESPN 30 for 30 on the topic is coming one day. In the meantime, here is my biased take on what took place. I was the head team physician for the Chargers during Brees’ five-year tenure in San Diego. I was there when he was drafted and there to put his shoulder back in place on the field after it dislocated on his last play with our team.
