Drew Brees' Mother death ruled suicide.

Article states their relationship has been strained for years. Deepest condolences regardless because this is the first I've heard of his mother's passing.

I wonder how this will affect his season knowing this but I'm sure he's already pondered that.

Death of Brees' mother was suicide

She died in August, so I doubt it'll start affecting his season now.

He didn't know it was a suicide until now. He said he had a rocky relationship with his mother, so if he thinks she killed herself because of him that might mess with him a little bit

They knew it was a suicide, it just wasn't confirmed. It could maybe affect him if it becomes a distraction, but likely he's already dealt with any feelings of guilt.

Hmm...you're probably right. Either way, I still feel bad for him

No point in speculation.
That was an ugly little article to read, but it's still very sad though.
If you're addicted to prescription drugs, I don't see how they call that suicide.

Damn Micheal Lewis is slow. Can't even keep up with a T.E.

Well if the dosage was high enough it would probably indicate suicide...you know, if she took 30 pills or something.
