How many of Drew's INT's should have been caught?
 
Does anyone have any idea how many of Drew's interceptions have been catchable passes that were tipped by his own recievers/TE?

It just seems that a lot of these INT's (see Jimmy Graham last night) should have been caught by the intended reciever.

I know it's part of the game and it happens, but is it me or has this happened too many times this year?

All of them. I have never seen Brees make a mistake.

you can count that one jimmy graham tipped, and the one that meach tipped vs carolina couple week ago. Sure there were plenty more aswell.

Some, but his decision making this year is a little off.

He made some absolutely sick throws last night. Looked real good.

Agreed. A friend of mine texted me last night to say Brees's pass to Meechem was "perfect," and wrote him back that 90% of them are. And I believe that. 90% of his completions could not be thrown any better. I would say only 10% did the receiver have to unnecessarily adjust. I remember Henderson was BUM before Brees got here! :-) As much as I love our receiving core, I predict (especially if/when we win another Superbowl) at least 2 of them will sign with other teams and produce mediocrity to a level that'll rival Jordan's supporting cast after other teams starting making them millionaires thinking the could do the same thing outside of a Bulls uniform.

Probably half of them.

i'd have to look at meach's catch again, he had light on defender and got caught. i have to see if he maybe slowed to inhale the pass.. grahm was due to have a drop but that was a really hard catchable ball that could have been the game if for not the beast jenkins. grahm has been on fire thats why i mention a drop, it could be called uncatchable?

Its the hard catchable throws that make this Offense so great, i Agree Graham was due to have a drop and unfortunately for him it happened to go disastrously wrong. however he's a rookie, they make mistakes and with the way he's been playing and the amount of potential he has i know he will make up for up, Drew will pick him up and get him on track. Its Just a matter of a Rookie getting used to how our O plays ball.
Ya see if Colston is in that position the ball is caught because he has 5 years experience in this Offence, doing that kinda thing. The rookie will get it, Your right though St Thomas, Jenkins is a beast.

Shockey would have caught that pass. Even the pass to Bush, it wasn't bullseye but he could have gotten some yards out of it. I agreee that all of our receivers except for Lance would be average or worst on other teams. Without those back shoulder lazers to Colston it's hard to see how he could be stellar on another team.

Boutte 11-26-2010 05:37 PM

Some of them can be blamed on the recievers but most are on him. Drew trusts his guys so much that he throws into coverage when most QBs wouldn't. Especially to Colston and Moore. He asks a lot of them and they usually come through for him.
