Brees Had dropped passes and blown OL assignments in the preseason game, he knows that, he's a smart person.

In practice Brees is facing one of the best DC in football, A DL that might turn out to be in the top #5 in the NFL, excellent LB's, and a secondary that most rate at #1-3 in the NFL.
I think the defense is just becoming where GW envisioned it to be, and that is a hard thing to play against.

So they are going to struggle on offense sometimes in practice. But its going to make them better, and more able to win games against other great defense we play this year like packers/bears/failclowns/bucs/and yes Rams.

I like that Brees and the offense is struggling. We have had the #1 rated offense sense 2006, most will admit, and I think we are better on offense than we have ever been. So that means our defense is finally catching up and GW has a lot of the players he wanted ( you never will get all of them).

Failure is the mother of success, my dad always said. Let them struggle in practice and learn how to play a great defense. So when we play the packers , Brees and the offense will be ready for #2 ranked defense last year, and show the packer fans how lucky they where Not to face a healthy Saints team in the playoffs.

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!

He also doesn't have a true #1 and colston + Meachem are limited. What defense is going to respect brees if theres no one to throw to. Now, if the line mans up and stops imitating a sieve, brees might look a bit better.

You sure couldn't tell it today! Colston and Meachem were both
stellar today. As were Lance Moore and Pierre Thomas. Ironically,
it was Jimmy Graham dropped his Woulda Been A Touchdown
Pass today. Oh... and Sproles. WHOA. That dude can hit warp
speed SO FAST. He is SO exciting to watch. Drew still have
PLENTY OF PEOPLE he can throw to. People that are gonna
make other teams HURT!

I still think that the change at center, is going to have an effect on Brees. This guy controls the line, and they have to get on the same page really quickly, to make sure this boat floats..... The loss of Stinchcomb also has an effect. This is his protection guys. He has to trust them with his life out there.

Thanks. I defer to witnesses. I'm tired of watching game tape.

Offense supposedly looked really good today... I'm sure it's just the offense shaking off the rust and stuff. They'll be fine.

Early in camp its always rough for the offence. Timing is such a huge issue and if its off just the slightest results will be poor. Its like when I play with the Swedish national team, defence is a bunch of great athletes just going after the ball and they get effective in just a couple of practises while the offence usually needs most of a camp to get rolling.
