Cool What's Up With Drew Brees

QB 9 Brees, Drew TDS 1 INT 7 YDS 677 RTG 57.1

I'm trying my hardest to figure out how in the hell an ALL-PRO, PRO BOWL, 2nd in MVP voting Quarterback could look so bad in a span of one year? You can talk about the blocking, which has been horrible, dropped balls by the receivers, there's been a few, you can even point to missed assignments, wrong routes being ran, or aliens from outer space. But it won't explain the happy feet Drew has developed lately, even when he has time his throws seem to get away from him, thank GOD Colston stands 6 feet 4 inches or Brees would've had a couple of more picks monday night. Brees's mechanics seem to be a lil off, even his throwing motion doesn't look as fluid as in the past, at times Drew looks like a rookie in the pocket. I'm just trying to understand how a veteran pro bowl QB can throw 1 td seven, SEVEN int's in three games, man at this point he is worst than ole Sexy Rexy. I'm hoping and praying that he can fix whatever it is affecting him over the the bye week, because we hitched the entire franchise to Drew, without him there is no future, so if your reading this Drew, let's get it together, it's not too late, but it's getting close, we need you desperately, so man up and get back that swagger from last year starting with a victory against Caorlina in week 5.

I think you said a lot and points to something you said in another thread. THe O-line isn't giving him enough time to set up nor enough time for the WR to get open. Teams area also taking away the deep rights first and formost. I am a firm believer that the O-line is key to it all. You buy enough time everyone can get open, set up and everything is grand. Brees is shell shocked back there knowing someone is coming within 3 seconds going to get a hand on him. So not only is he looking for a WR and what coverage the DB's are giving he's nervous because the damn line isn't doing there job. -PROTECTING HIM-

I noticed Monday night the same thing happened to Brooks you look around and look out the corner of your eye while trying to look for a WR. ITS THE LINE MAN!

Unhappy Re: What's Up With Drew Brees

I have to agree with you guys. If your line doesn't block you butts in trouble. Brees hasn't been all world, but I place much of the blame on the offensive line. From what i've seen of them, they are terrible. Worse than that if possible. Defensive line isn't any better. I think our whole defense is weak at best. None of them are playing up to their potential.

Totally a agee both lines have failed! The amount of money they are getting and the level they are playing at doesn't add up.

Re: What's Up With Drew Brees

I just don't understand what happened between last year and this year. You don't get luckyand win 10 games. At least on the offensive side of the ball the line played much better last year. Maybe it is the fact of all the hype during the last few months. Maybe they started to believe all the write-ups. I still believe that these guys can play, but they sure need to get off their collective butts and play. These guys have been tossed around like rag dolls this year. Poor old Drew is starting to remind me of Archie. The thing is, you can't point the finger at any one lineman. They're all guilty of playing like crap. I'm for putting in some or all of the replacement players. At least someone who wants to earn a job. Looks to me like the starters believe to much in how good they are. It's almost to late, but they need to learn, they're not as great as they think they are. If they keep playing at this rate, Deuce won't be the only injury this year. We might not have a running back to finish the year with.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!

Re: What's Up With Drew Brees

It is him and the rest of the team playing bad, but the same was true for Aaron and the team at that time also.

Re: What's Up With Drew Brees

No O-line. However, even when he does have time to throw he's been throwing junk balls.
Drew threw a ball way too high for Deuce and now Deuce is out for the year.
I love Drew. I hope that this team gets better before the Panthers. If not, I may have to sell my ticket for the Seattle/Saints game.

Re: What's Up With Drew Brees

Listened to Drew on Bobby Hebert's show last night and it sounds to me like Drew is just as befuddled as all of us. His stats so far this year show him in a different light. The later interceptions are coming bc the Saints are trying to get back IN a game. Drew is forced to try and squeeze a pass in to make a big play and well, when you have defenders just sitting back and waiting for the pass.... it gets tipped and or intercepted.

Re: What's Up With Drew Brees

Lance Moore has actually been a bright spot on the team. David Patten has also looked good when Drew is actually able to complete a pass. Devery is the only one that looks horrible out there.

The line... that's the problem.

Re: What's Up With Drew Brees

The reason that Brees has looked bad is the same reason the running game can not move the ball - the O-Line can not block. If you look at most of Brees errant passes, you'll see that they were either tipped by a D-Lineman or Brees was hit. It is also the same reason that the team has lost the big-play threat. The O-Line can not hold off our opponents long enough for the receivers to get down field. If the team can fix the problems with the O-Line, then the team will become a contender again.
