Re: Brees letting the team down

I have learned one thing, for sure, since joining this site. You can never, under any circumstances, place any blame on Drew Brees. It's always someone else's fault, and any conclusion to the contrary means we "must have forgotten about the first 40 years". And every time someone questions his play in a game, it means we're blaming the whole season on him.

I agree with dizzle on this one about the last two weeks. It might not be popular to say Brees sucks right now, but guess what? He does. I'm not predicting he'll never win a game again, but I'm sure that will immediately be the assumption upon reading this, for many people. So be it. He has his entire offense healthy again, his defense was great for the last 3 quarters, and yes there were a couple crucial drops, but the face of the franchise can't let that snowball into 5 turnovers and numerous near turnovers. Last week was largely his and the offensive line's fault, but this game was at least 85 to 90 percent on him.

There's nothing wrong with a little honesty. I'm still a Drew Brees fan, but I'm not a fan of his play right now.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Brees letting the team down

I didn't see the 5th pick but the first 4 was all on Brees. First one was thrown way to late but I can buy that one. Second really misplaced to Ivorys back shoulder in a rough spot, throw that one out of bounds. Very early in your career as a QB you ar thaught not to throw across your body especially while not having your feet on the ground voila pick no 3. 4th was horrible protection but still just take the damn sack.

Re: Brees letting the team down

He may not have played well for the last couple of games, but, man...did you catch that pre-game chant? You can tell they worked their butt's off getting that down! Too bad they didn't spend that much time practicing football.

Brees didn't just suddenly become a mediocre QB. It took a whole offseason and an unbalanced payroll for that to happen. Great QB's become average when they have people in their face all night. If only we could afford to pay our offensive linemen more. Oh well...here's a phrase that we all must remember. "Wait until next year!"

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Don't criticise people for having there own views
Just for my own personal understanding.

What you are saying is "don't have an opinion or personal view of people who have an opinion or a personal view"?

Am I close?

Nope not close at all

Everyone can have their own views about eachother, I never said they couldn't

But calling me a bandwagon fan because I'm saying brees is to blame is absurd

You saying Brees it 100% to blame when a coach with a damned good running game decided to force a QB that is having an off night and throwing picks to keep throwing picks is absurd.

Thomas was averaging 6 yards per carry and healthy. The run was abandoned because poor game management sent us into the 1/2 down by two scores.

You blaming Brees for what was probably the tide turner for this game, abysmal clock and game management just before the 1/2 is absurd.

Cause and effect (adj)-
noting a relationship between actions or events such that one or more are the result of the other or others.

In military terms - When your weapon is malfunctioning you go to another fkn weapon. On int 3 brees would have been benched for Daniels, and PT would have been the work horse.

I agree. The coaches should have never abandoned the run. It was working. Brees should not have had to throw so much.

He should have not been ALLOWED to throw so much.
