When you learn a curl route the first things they teach you are; quickly breakdown to not let the DB gain ground on you and always come back to the pass incase the DB has made a step on the ball while its in the air

Fundamentals have been killing us this year
Have you noticed how many yards after the catch are gained against us because the other teams receivers not only come back for the catch but take 2 extra steps to make the defender miss a tackle?

If we did that in practice on offense, the defense would be able to adjust.

Tackle where he WILL be, not where he is.

Re: Drew's Arm

My opinion - alas Drew is human. I definitely feel his arm strength is as good as ever. He's actually using less "touch" this year and his throws are off just a bit. Drew has a powerful enough arm to be a very effective NFL QB. But without the right touch on the ball, it just does not fall exactly where it should as he is the definition of an precision passer.

Agree with nitedept and others that Drew taking on too much to elevate the team to greatness on his shoulders is the failing. He feels he needs to compensate for a weaker defense and score every-time he has the ball. This equates disaster.

NO QB can handle that type of responsibility. I appreciate his courage but the situation defines our season so far.

Yeah Alot of the times it was made a 1000 times worse also because our DB's played 10 yards off a receiver on 3rd and 3, which would lead to a WR getting 15 yards when they only need 3

I hope the D continues to improve, they have proper guidance this year and with a couple of draft picks hopefully at OLB, S or DT/DE we could be dominant

however on offense the only thing that will fix us is waiting until next year and thats coach

On a positive note (YAY) I like what joe morgan has been doing recently, He looks like the deep threat that we need in our offense

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Re: Drew's Arm

Nah, don't agree. That pass was short because Bushleague's guy pushed him into Drew's leading left leg and he couldn't step into the throw.

Re: Drew's Arm

its been that way, during the superbowl run it was like that. He has always under thrown the WR. Nothing new here, thats why we need to run the damn ball and not throw it 50 times a game, and still loose

Re: Drew's Arm

I blame the offensive line. Seriously.

Re: Drew's Arm

i can agree to some of the drew and grahm posts. drew is in a battle with fatigue mentally more than old wounds hurting. he really started to press when for 3 quarters without a passing td. jimmy grahm now its confussing to me how he went from all world to the real world. injury has to be the culprit. he has his ways of giving up on a route when he knows hes not targeted. which is hurting his ego a little. u don't see him in drews face apoligizing as much for a droped ball like last season. has to be the foot/ankle eating him. can't shake a cold this year. it could be that i finally thought i had a fantasy stud also. lol. still love um both.

GO NEW ORLEANS

Re: Drew's Arm

I haven't really seen this. On this level the margin for error is so small that if Brees has gotten hit and has a bruised shoulder or a slight sprain that might be enough to cause a problem with his delivery, doesn't have to be the end of the world or nothing.

Agree man.
His throw 2 games ago for a TD had Semi-active radar homing on it

When is the last time any of you hears or saw the phrase "Brees throws his receivers open"?

I am in no way saying his arm is gone, but what I have seen of him in the last few games reminds me of the 2010 season when we found out near the end of the season that he played a few games hurt.

I have tendonitis in both rotator cuffs, and impingement. Drew has his his arm nearly ripped out of socket and is slinging 50 passes/game, you cant tell me his shoulders don't hurt when the weather changes etc...

Let me put it into terms that may wake some people up. The QB that has been touted as one of the most intelligent and accurate QB in the NFL just starts throwing wildly inaccurate passes and makes very bad decisions because.... He ran out of waffles?
I think it more fatigued than anything, a lot of his passes are behind, never in stride or he steps up so far and over throw just misses so yes that run game is very important so SP is needed and I hope he sees it
