Re: Brees letting the team down

Nah, it's so many variables. Drew looked awful tonight, and last week was rough to say the least. But it's not all on him, no way, not even close. Put 80% of the NFL teams in the situation we were in this year and they would not compete. We have, and we will continue to. Drew will be fine, and assuming we get SP back we will be back in business next year.

Re: Brees letting the team down

Drew spent the 1st half of the season trying to overcome that pathetic excuse for a defense (which I agree is playing better now).

Someone needs to tell he that he doesn't have to force things to try to score on every drive any longer.


Personally, I think the INTs were not the issue.

It was the Les Miles clock management at the end of the half and the penalty on JG that took away a TD.

The "7" was hanging out in the L column at that point...

Re: Brees letting the team down

He's pressing....This is where Sean P. typically earns his benjamins. He has the ability to keep Drew on task. There's no one on the sideline willing or capable of grabbing him and shaking the living dog pi*s out of him. In light of our 32nd rank defense I think he's trying to do too much. As the D improves hopefully he pulls his head out of his arse.

Re: Brees letting the team down

Let's dump him!
He didn't do anything to get us where we are.
He's in it for the money. It's all about him.
He tried to throw these games... yep, that's it. Threw 'em....

We would do SO MUCH BETTER with let's see - BYRON LEFWICH or TONY ROMO or maybe we can lure MATTY ICE from the Falcons?

Re: Brees letting the team down

Hard to believe that every tipped ball winds up in a Defenders hands. What are the odds of that, just a multitude of bad luck. We should have walked away with a win today the Saints beat themselves.

Re: Brees letting the team down

Yep! Defense finally broke a sweat, and the offense stalled.
We scored over 20 in every game this season, except week8 @Denver.
The INT's were just part of the problem.
We had tips also, 4-5 of them, and they ALL hit the ground with no Johnny-on-the-spot.
Please tell me why Ingram isn't standing on the sideline watching PT and Ivory show him how to run in the NFL?
If only IF was a skif, I would go boat riding.
Take back the take back of the Sproles TD (our fault ((for getting caught))),
or even trade it in for a catch of the Lance Moore drop,
Zack Strief doesn't give up the sack,
they actually call holding on the Mat Ryan escape and 3rd down conversion to JuJo,
game could have turned on a dime, easily.
We were still in the game and just didn't get it done.
There are bound to be days like this as much as we throw the ball, even weeks like these.
What we are seeing has everything to do with these substitute teachers and not having
Sean Payton, the master teacher, to set his classroom in order.
We've got too many bolts loose to run smooth. They'll all get tightened soon.

Re: Brees letting the team down

I agree with you dizzle except for your last sentence.
YES, no lying Drew B these last two games...unbelievable...acting like a newbie, a rookie.
Yes, he has been really off.
Tonight, lost two TD's for sure.
I went to bed at beginning of 3rd qrtr.
Whatever was to be , was to be and I was jsut too anxious so I figured , whatever, I will catch NFL Net news in the morning.
I WILL NOT be watching tomorrow morning or pregame shows this weekend.

Many factors , I won't repeat again as we all have for Saints' 7 L, 5 W.

I'll quote darstep,
"What we are seeing has everything to do with these substitute teachers and not having
Sean Payton, the master teacher, to set his classroom in order.
