if it was'nt for a few plays that bounced off recievers hands and into defensive hands i would have given drew a d. clearly because his play is not close to last season. whoever says drew's play has not been shakey is just covering.

Anything more than a C- is homerism?

We're 6-3. Brees is on pace to throw for 4,000 yards, around 30 touchdowns, and complete 70% of his passes. Granted he's thrown more picks than usual, but there's around 3-4 that wasn't his fault. Our offensive line has regressed this year which in turn has made him a little more jittery in the pocket.

Off top of that, we're not even counting the dropped catches/touchdown passes and the loss of both Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas. And once again, he's still on pace to put up great statistics.

C-? Really? Homers? Really?

B range easy... to call anyone a homer who rates him higher than a C- is absolutely ridiculous.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I'd say C is about right for the O'Line. Between the lack of running room and the penalties theonly thing keeping them from scoring lower is pass protection. I know we're not happy with that either our expectations are higher in this area. If you compare it to the rest of the league our pass protection has been pretty good.

It's hard to grade the RBs because of the poor performance of our line.

Brees would still be an A if it weren't for the Cleveland game.
