Re: Drew Brees is turning into Brett Favre...

Someone somewhere was asking what is it about the RG position this season?

Its simple, most of these injuries to that position is intentional, but its more so something many NFL teams try to do which is fall down into the legs of the opposing linemen, I think the Saints played a little bit into that strategy to in the 49ers game when they knocked out not Williams which was a big hit, but on Hunter, I bet the 49ers lead the league in injuries to opposing players.

This is something old school Jimmy Johnson and Dallas use to do. I thought all this was changed in the rule books after that with these types of plays, its more so a chop block behind the mask.

Re: Drew Brees is turning into Brett Favre...

drew didnt have to have a perfect game for us to win

the defense was decent, they got off the field, made a big pick

Brees f'ed this one up

Yeah he shouldnt have to perfect all the time, but he sure as hell can't throw 2 pick 6's and expect us to win

Re: Drew Brees is turning into Brett Favre...

No, he is not turning into to Brett Farve.

He Tony Romo'd two , two throws yesterday.
YES, those were game changers.
YES, that was bad.
YES, it was costly as in SF49'ers getting two easy TD's there.
No, no one is throwing him out .
Still, Saints lost by 10.
Bad day, yeah.
Unlike him ,yeah.
WTH was he thinking? Who set up that wonderful? Him? Coachs?
He is not on the downside of his career, yet.
No, no one is giving him a free pass . He threw two pics there.
Thursday, new game day.

Re: Drew Brees is turning into Brett Favre...

Say what you like about the D, they looked decent out there but for the fact that Kaepernick was able to slip more tackles than I could count. Give the Whiners 'some' credit. When they knew Brees was stuck with only passing, they came in with their ears pinned back!

Did the O line look tired in the last quarter, or was it just poor play?

And WHY on earth to they keep sticking Ingram in when it's clear that Ivory should've been left in there to bust some heads?

The highest paid player in the NFL shouldn't be making bone head Tony romo mistakes going into half time.
The Colston pick, honestly thats not drews fault it was tipped. However the bad placement that almost broke Colstons neck IS !

ummm I wouldn't be too upset with one thrown in the 4th quarter with a 21 point lead.

Lets just ignore the stat that was flashed across the screen during the game that showed Drew was sacked/ hit/ rushed on 50% of the pass plays.
