Saints' Brees returns to San Diego for first time

NEW ORLEANS -- It's hard to believe, but the last time New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees stepped inside Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego to participate in an NFL football game, he had a lightning bolt on his helmet and was buried under a pile, his throwing shoulder in tatters and his career hanging in the balance.

It was the end of an otherwise forgettable 2005 season. Brees, the Chargers' starting quarterback and one-time Pro Bowler, was sacked by Denver Broncos safety John Lynch and sustained a torn right labrum, which made it much easier and even logical for the Chargers to officially usher in the Philip Rivers era.

On Sunday, Brees, now 37, will return to San Diego with the 0-3 Saints to face the 1-2 Chargers in San Diego for the first time since his career-altering injury. That's eight Pro Bowls, six NFL-leading passing seasons and one Lombardi Trophy ago.
