Jamal Pettigrew, Trey Palmer, Charles Turner, TK McLendon, Devonte Lee, among others, were also back on the field yesterday. Their pressence showed that a lot of these injuries will slowly get better. However, fans may have to wait a little longer for Grant Delpit and K’Lavon Chaisson.
“The coaches were speaking at face value when talking about these injuries,” T-Bob said. “I think LSU has avoided the nightmare scenarios.”

Also, Jordy and T-Bob broke down an in depth ESPN article by Bill Barnwell about whether Drew Brees is on the decline.
Bardwell started with how age could be responsible for the decline of the Saints star QB, but eventually offered that it was just a natural regression mixed with bad luck. Furthermore, he implies that Terron Armstead and offensive line injuries had nothing to do with the regression, which Jordy and T-Bob didn’t think was true. In the end, Barnwell thought there won’t be much of a Brees drop off.
New column: I took a long look into Drew Brees’s post-Thanksgiving decline in 2018, why I don’t think it told us much about his 2019, why he might decline anyway, and why the Saints might still win the Super Bowl if he does. https://t.co/g5Nr9R2vVl pic.twitter.com/ZpUYqPrwhE
