New Orleans Saints: Mark Brunell (2009)
Out of 208 possible regular season games since Drew Brees came to New Orleans, he’s started 206 of them. One of those lone two starts made by someone else came in 2009 (the year they won the Super Bowl), in a Week 17 game in which the Saints had nothing to gain by winning.
So, they started a 39-year-old Mark Brunell in that game, and it went about as well as you could imagine. Brunell threw 30 passes, yet put up a grand total of 102 yards, meaning he averaged a laughable 3.3 yards per attempt.
Oh, and he also threw an interception in that game, so when you add all of those facts up, you shouldn’t be surprised that New Orleans ended up losing. But Brunell still ended up a winner anyway, walking away with a Super Bowl ring.
