Because of his sporadic play, it came as no surprise that Brees pointed at himself after Sunday's 44-38 loss to Carolina in the regular-season finale, saying offensive improvements must start with him.

"I've got to hold myself accountable and those have to come down," Brees said of his interceptions, the second-highest season total of his career. In 2010, he threw 33 TDs with 22 interceptions.

"I understand that and I'm going to do my best to fix that."

He said the same thing in 2010 and look what happened in 2011.

This years motto (and I hate mottos and slogans)...

Funny you should mention pie. I'm a big pie fan. I love apple pie, blueberry pie, hair pie, key lime pie, well you get the idea , but as I've been saying all year long, and maybe Drew just didn't hear it, TALK IS CHEAP!! Stop talking about it and DO IT!

You can start by stop throwing into triple coverage because you trust the WR, it hasn't worked at all so why does he keep doing it

I agree with Drew. The team had a lot of problems this season. He was one of them.

Drew is great but his greatness is multiplied by having Sean Payton in his ear.

i think the opposite, i think he DIDNT have trust in his WR. the only time he looked good is when we didnt have sproles, i believe he could have hit some Wrs, but checked down to sproles so he could drop the pass, or not pick up a first.imo
