Guy, look around. People take turns criticizing Drew, the defense, the receivers, the o-line, the coaches, and Roger Goodell. Drew is not the only one. I hardly think people are saying something negative every single time Drew's name is mentioned. But for the record, he did have a bad year, and no he was not the only one. We throw the ball damn near 50 times a game, of course he gets his yards. We also had a lot of 3 and outs and turnovers.

Everyone gets a share of the blame, I agree with that. Just remember that Drew is a quarterback, not an untouchable deity. I can agree with your sentiment about not wanting people to constantly harp on one player, but I think the negativity has been rather widely dispersed.

Your demonstration suggested that people hate on Drew even when he has a great season. All those wild numbers you threw out, were not close to being realistic, and certainly weren't close to what he did THIS season. Drew is a highly popular person around here, and until he laid a bunch of eggs this year, not many people had anything negative to say about him. That's why I think you're overreacting a bit.

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

Out of the TOP 12 teams in scoring we are 3rd and the ONLY team that didn't make the playoffs. ALL other 11 top scoring teams made it. Our offense in its ENTIRETY played playoff caliber ball.

NFL Stats: by Team Category


Defense 2nd to last in points allowed.
NFL Stats: by Team Category


Portions of our offense are blamed? BS! I don't care if Drew threw 50 interceptions, when your offense is 3rd in the league in scoring and you don't make the playoffs, its not lack of scoring that kept you out of the playoffs, its failure to stop other teams from scoring that kept you out of the playoffs..

Yes it is that simple victory in the NFL is determined by the differential of points scored vs points allowed. It doesn't matter whether you pass, run, punt, intercept.. Its all Point differential.
Do you ever look beyond stats? When you are constantly playing from behind, and throwing 50 times a game, you're going to score some points. It's an offensive league. But where was our offense in crunch time? At Atlanta? Our defense plays one of it's best games of the year, and we lose because of 5 picks. Where was our offense against San Francisco? We scored 21 points and threw two pick sixes. Nice work, O.

How about the Denver game? 14 big points. Kansas City? Against their atrocious defense we managed less than 300 yards and blew an 18 point lead by doing nothing the entire second half.

Our defense is equally to blame, they were, but for a couple games, very bad. No freaking duh. But you don't know much about football if you can't see how far our offense dropped off. I mean that for every person who thinks our offense is blameless.

That reply is hilarious. Truly... Thanks! I NOWHERE mentioned stats, I talked about points which are not stats in a sense. Points (score) is the only thing that decides a win or loss.

This is the best "When you are constantly playing from behind, and throwing 50 times a game, you're going to score some points."... That makes no sense but tell that to Kansas City... You fail to realize that that there is junk yardage but no team gives up points freely .. No such thing as junk points unless one of our opponents put in their second string.

You however after highlighting stats as the ignorant way to go... went on to make a case using stats. Passes per game (stat), less than 300 yards (stat), defense played the best game of the year (you arent justifying that with stats are you?).

The defenses best game of the year was against Tampa Bay in week 15 where TB didn't score.... because after all only "someone that 'doesn't know much about football" would not look at score and only look at stats.


You referenced 4 games... So we should have been 12-4.

Thank you drive through.. I am done.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: QB Drew Brees Agitated Saints Will Miss Home Super Bowl

Drew lost some games for us
The defense lost some games for us
And the special teams lost the NY giants game for us

If the defense stopped someone we would have won more games
If drew didn't throw 7 picks combined in the SF and ATL games we would have won, but he won the other games for us

If the defense stopped KC's running game we would have won that

No one is beyond blame but drew wasn't the only one that messed up, yeah he cost us a couple games, so did the defense, drew won more games for us than the D did
All aspects of our team needs to improve, that includes drews efficiency

Re: QB Drew Brees Agitated Saints Will Miss Home Super Bowl

Drew has played worse. He threw 22 picks a couple or 3 years ago. It's funny, though, because he didn't lead the league that year.

Drew Brees is a very good...no...great QB. No doubt. If he played bad last year it was only because other people around him were playing bad...worse than they had in the past, but it is surprising to me that people are feeling like this is all his fault...or even that he is much different than he has ever been.

The team was different. There were so many factors that played a part. I don't have to bring them all up...everybody knows the things that happened...and the defense was in fact horrible, and IMO, the main reason the Saints were 7-9.

Somebody mentioned poor decisions because they were behind and trying to make plays. I don't have the inclination to go back and find out who it was...you know who you are...but you, sir, I applaud.

I can see your point but I guess I'm putting a lot more of the blame on the fact that Payton wasn't coaching the team this year. I just don't see how anyone can talk about how the team dropped off this year with out pointing to that as 90% of the problem. And the first four games of the season should be completely discounted.

Yep and some.

The issue is that many are inserting the words "only" and "all" in posts where those words are not stated.
