'09 vs Pats/ '11 vs Pack. Drew????

I can't help but think that Drew loves a challenge.

The build-up to the game vs the Patriots was all about:
The Saints are playing well, but: "Can they overcome the Juggernaut that is Tom Brady?

I think Brady is the best QB in the league.
He may be the best of all time.
That night Drew and the Saints embarrassed them.

The build-up for the season opener this year features the "Flavor of the Month" Aaron Rogers vs the "Perpetual Underdog" Drew Brees.

I think Aaron Rogers is one of the top 5 QBs in the NFL right now, but I am alone in thinking that Drew gets a little pissy and raises his game in situations like this?

I predict another perfect QB rating from Drew in the opening game!

btw, please save all of the "can we stop the run" comments.
I am talking about Brees' performance (predicted) alone in this thread.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

With our newfound running game, I'm thinking that Drew will be able to keep the Packers defense somewhat off balance.

And Drew always seem to "rise up"(for lack of a better term) in these big "underdog" situations.

And we have A LOT of passing options, I'm thinking Graham will prove to be the kryptonite needed...

I agree (obviously).

Can Graham block?

I attended all of the open camp practices, but it is difficult to determine whether he can or not.
I guess the coaches would not have him as involved in the offense if he couldn't.
If he develops that, we will be a tough team to beat.

I was thinking of Grahams' catching ability. Being able to keep the safeties/LBs on their heels, making the screens that much harder to defend. David Thomas as well, but Graham seems to be able to get down-field a little easier

You are correct in this.
He will stretch Ds.
Commit to taking Graham away?
Thank you very much!

Our WRs will kill you!

If he stays healthy, he will be the piece that Payton has coveted, but not had.

Shockey would have been the guy if he had been able to stay healthy.
