Joe Vitt uneasy after Drew Brees takes some hits
 
For the Saints, a rough offseason would get a whole lot worse if quarterback Drew Brees went down with an injury. So Saints coach Joe Vitt wasn’t pleased when he saw Brees shaken up on Friday night against the Jaguars.

Yea I wasn't either. I guess its to be expected as we have almost totally replaced our offensive line over the past year. I hope they start operating at a unit soon, for Brees sake. I have seen him get way more pressure this preseason than I am used to seeing.

Graham just flat out missed the block, didn't even get a hand on Mincey I believe it was?

You are correct, it was Mincey

He should have just held him and taken the penalty

With a travel "beaten" team, a team that has basically been flying around the country for 3 weeks to practice and play footabll, I cannot believe and have expressed extreme disapproval with Brees playing most of the first half of last night's game.

NFL teams start their starting offense during the first half of the 3rd preseason game. That means Drew and company will probably play the entire first half of next week's game. Why play them most of the first half of the 2nd preseason game?

Vitt's insistence on playing offensive starters last night until practically halftime shows poor judgement. Sure, o-line should play... they should practice blocking and running game, etc. etc. But why would we risk injury to our most valuable player on the team is beyond me.

While I totally agree with you, every other team in the league has kept their starting QB in the game for the first half of the game this week. I think it was more about Brees competitiveness and wanting to stay in the game until he could get a good drive going than anything. Vitt needs to grow some balls and tell his starting QB no.

Losing 1 person doesn't mean we replaced our entire offense line...

NEVER, EVER let Brees play right after having a baby.

It is the kryptonite to Superman's game. Remember 2010 vs Cleveland in the Dome???

At least he did not get hurt and it was just a preseason game...

Center, Guard and Tackle. The only ones that are still there from 2010 are Jahri and Bushrod.
