New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said he saw a few situations on video from Monday night's 25-22 victory over the San Francisco 49ers where an opportunity might have been open down the field if he had "forced it in there."


"But then that would have been exactly what it is, which is 'forcing it' in there," said Brees, who didn't sound too concerned Wednesday about the offense's lack of big plays in this young season.

Although it's odd to see Brees hovering outside the NFL's top 10 quarterbacks in passing yards (245.5 per game) and to see the Saints ranked 21st in the league in total offense -- about 20 spots lower than they're accustomed to -- the statistic that matters most is the 2-0 record.

"We knew the type of game that was going to be up there," Brees said, referring to both the 49ers' defense and the windy conditions in Candlestick Park. "We needed to have as few mistakes as possible, play a pretty clean game as far as penalty-free, mental error-free and turnover-free. And we might have to punt and play the field-position game a little bit, which we did. But in the end, just give us a chance to win.

"The game turned out exactly like we thought it would, although when we sit there and look at the film, we saw where we had some opportunities that we probably could have scored some more points."
