Well since the O-line generally does a pretty good job of protecting Drew, except for that Sunday they missed their flight to St. Louis, he really doesn't have to scramble all that much so I would rather see the extra few inches of height. But I think he is doing just fine the way he is.

His height hasn't hindered him thus far. Brees doesn't need Vick's speed, but it would make him the most dynamic player to ever hit the field.

Neither, I think he has the size and speed he was meant to have and has made the most of it, why change anything, it's great now.

Our offense is designed to work for drew, he seperates himself from the line of scrimmage to give himself a throwing lane.

He's the best just the way he is

I agree with jlouhill that as well as Brees is protected that he doesn't need to scramble a lot.

I like Brees the way he is also; question was offered in a what-if tone.

Kind of like, what-if the 2011 Saints had the original Dome Patrol playing in its prime this year!!

It sounds like people are offended at the question. It would be SOOO awful for Brees to be more athletic.

Brees has been the best QB under pressure for a while now. Currently #1 again this year under pressure. Brees is 67.9% completions when pressured 127 times. 2nd is Rogers at 66% with only 89 pressures.

Depends, do you define athletic as running around in the pocket like a chicken with its head cut off like rogers has to do because his OL is so horrible, or athletic as Tebow with a 48% completion record ?

Soon to have his head taken off.

I define athletic as using your head and physical ability to gain the best result.
Brees is fine.

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!
