Brees not looking so hot this camp

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Reports coming out of camp so far are that Drew is only completing like 50% of his passes and seems to be taking a step back. According to Bobby Hebert he seems to be in a slump. God I hope ...

I hope it's a sign that we are going to have one hell of a defense this year.

Yes; I hope this "slump" is attributed more to our stout defense and less to Breesus himself...

At least three of his good friends have left the team and he had a pretty terrible preseason opener. Not to mention his son is 1.5, and all of the stress of this plus that probably has his mind slipping. Also, he doesn't quite have the same chip on his shoulder that he did before the super bowl.
I don't think he has lost his ability to win or to be an elite QB, I just think that he is going to get worse before he gets better. I think most of us that have competed in sports on any level know what that is like.
We may string together a couple of losses, then Payton will slap him in the face and tell him to get his **** together, then we will see Drew back in championship form.

I think he need a new bad-ass chant to start each game of this new season! It worked in 2009!

This is certainly not "good news". Hope he figures it out. Good thing our running game should be alot better this season. Could it be all the changes in the o-line? A new center, is a pretty major change for a QB.

Always enjoy your posts. I have an idea this is what is going on. Bobby said something along these same lines but used the word spoiled. A caller called in asked if it was a testament to how well our defense is playing and Bobby saind no about 10x and then kinda got off topic without elaborating. I just really hope that as much as he has been forced to throw these past couple of years on a surgically repaired shoulder is not catching up to him. Even so, even when Drew starts to decline a Drew at 70% of what he has been is better than half the qbs in the league and with good coaching, a solid running game, and top defense we can still be contenders for 3-4 more years before having to rebuild.

I think all good points made here. I also think, from watching him
at camp, good god, just BEING DREW BREES takes a lot of energy.
Girls and women scream as soon as he walks on the field and scream
for his attention and autograph to the very last moment when he
disappears in the door.

I know, I know, boo hoo for him. BUT... some people there today
were being so demanding and so pushy with him. Like they just
wanted him to sign something so they can turn around and go
sell it. And it must get absolutely exhausting to be him sometimes.

Once the season gets going and they can get into a routine where
he's getting the rest he's used to and in a groove, I think he'll be
fine. I mean it's not like he's out there throwing bricks the whole
time. The dude works his butt off out there. He is clearly
the spiritual leader of the team. Still works the hardest, and stays
out doing extra work.

My guess is it has more to do with training camp itself, than
anything with his skills. I think he's gwan be juuuust fine.
