"Bad luck" indeed...perchance tonight my luck will change...

Why would anyone play Brees on the road against an Aaron Donald led defense, when you can play him at home against the Bucs or Falcons or an even worse defense???

Typically one has to suffer a surprise injury to get booted in week 2. I thought I would be fine with a crappy QB.

At least I get to root against OBJ.

And you would have been. Problem is that you went with a REALLY crappy QB.
