Brees Nowhere Near an MVP in the Cold of Chicago

For a player that is supposed to be in the running for the League MVP, Thursday night in Chicago was probably one that QB Drew Brees would like to forget.  The QB didn’t have one of his best nights of the year against the Bears in the gut-wrenching 27-24 overtime loss, going 24-of-43 passes on the night for 232 yards with two touchdowns and one interception for a passer rating of 67.2.

The QB did recover to get his team back in the game and actually have a lead late, but the first two quarters have to come in question, as Brees and the team fell behind 21-7 as he was just 10-of-24 with 93 yards and a 49.5 rating in the first two quarters.

On a night when they needed him most, Brees was as cold as the wind off the lake.  He was not able to overcome a Bears pass defense that has at times this year given up big games this year to guys like Brian Griese.  If he’s going to be the MVP, he sure didn’t show it on Thursday night, and he’s just one reason the season will be over in two weeks after the Thursday setback.
