Yep, I remember back in 2005 or 2006 when Brees had surgery on his throwing shoulder I thought his career was over, it might have been the reason why the Chargers let him go to the Saints, boy was I wrong.
As for Bridgewater, the injury was pretty horrific based on reports that there were teammates throwing up when they saw the injury. He might return in the 2018 season, but I doubt he remains the long term starter on a team.
Crazy how things change in just 2-3 years, after Bridgewater's nice rookie year he was crowned the star QB out of the 2014 draft, now Derek Carr is that guy while Bridgewater is absent.
