I'm officially worried about Drew. The underthrow to Henderson doesn't instill confidence in his arm strength and, more worrisome to me, the two INT's...he seems to have lost the ability to read D's. I just don't get what's going on with him.
Drew has always underthrown his deep guys. It was always a problem In our SB run. The last time I can remember him hitting a Wr in stride was last year against the bears to devery. Go look at some highlights, our deep passes always has our wr's slowing down or damn near stop for the ball.

100% spot on. I've always thought the same exact thing Ash.

I think some are intentional, but it does seem like an inordinate amount.

Re: The Fat Lady Has Sung

Too tired to analyze the game of which I sort of looked at.
I peaked here and there for a bit as I vacummed and dusted .
Bad lost.

All I hope for is an 8-8 season ending for their pride .
I hope AtlFal get eliminated from Playoffs.

That is all I hope for.

What teams in Playoffs, SB, I am really not too interested.
It is not being a sore loser thing, it is gets that I am not interested.

I'm wondering if maybe his shoulder is starting to wear down with age. He should probably give up the deep pass unless the receiver is alone eating a sandwich because of a blown coverage. I think Drew still has a few good years left in him and I still have confidence in him but it may be time to start grooming his replacement, whoever that may be. Just a thought.

I can't wait to watch the Giants tear the Falcons apart next week.

Oh, and go Broncos.

Re: The Fat Lady Has Sung

simple the saints are stuck in an offensive play calling rut. to basic. the saints need to go back to what they did when bush was here. have fun on offense.

Drew is a west coast QB. short to mid range passes with only a few deep balls. he has never had the arm.

season over? it is never over till the gun sounds at the last game of the year.

that fat lady aint signing she is just farting
