Saints quarterback Drew Brees: 'It was my most frustrating season'
"It was my most frustrating season," said Brees to Sports Illustrated after the Pro Bowl Sunday. "You never want to go 7-9. It’s no fun."
It was only Brees' fourth losing season in his pro career. However, heading into his 15th season and age 37, he believes the Saints have figured out what went wrong for New Orleans in 2014.
"I think we’ve identified the problems or the things that got us beat or the things that didn’t allow us to be as good as we know we can be, and we have the solution to fix it," Brees said. "It’s going to take a lot of work, but I know we can get it done."
Brees narrowly missed his fourth consecutive 5,000-yard passing season in 2014, going for 4,952. He also threw his fewest touchdown passes since 2010.
Bengals' Vontaze Burfict undergoes microfracture surgery
However, when the surgery was performed in October, it was not reported to be microfracture surgery. Dr. Neal ElAttranche confirmed Sunday he performed microfracture surgery on Burfict's knee.
"I don't see any reason, if this thing heals like we want and we think it will, why he won't be back like he was," said ElAttrache. "Microfracture has a bad connotation, but there are plenty of guys who have come back and been able to play like before. But it's not really news when it works out."
ElAttrache said he believes Burfict should be ready at full strength for the start of training camp.
Burfict's season was cut short by the knee injury, allowing him to play just five games in 2014, totaling 29 tackles.
