I hope this Isn't True , but It did Raise a question in my mind .

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It's not injury as much as overuse, "having" to throw deep over and over to try to climb out of a hole almost every game this past season. His per game attempts over 50 most games and alot of those ...

It's not injury as much as overuse, "having" to throw deep over and over to try to climb out of a hole almost every game this past season. His per game attempts over 50 most games and alot of those trying to eat up chunks of yardage. He still proved he can thread the needle at will.

Was it 07 that he injured his ankle and we didn't find out until after the season that it lingered all year? He threw a lot of interceptions that year too if I recall. Anyway a QB like Drew is going to throw interceptions, its just part having a QB with his style of play. The ones I hate are the ones he dumps off when he is pressured and about to get hit. Throw the damn ball away. Ass hole.

I don't think it has anything to do with arms trength. I think he'd rather slightly underthrow it than over-throw it.

Some people are starting to sound alot like Nick Saban...
More concerned about the arm rather than the person it attached to.

I'm fine with Drew until he or the organization says otherwise. I'm not going to speculate about the best Saint to ever wear the uniform.

Huh? The Miami team doctors said his arm was shot, not Nick Saban.

I agree he'd rather underthrow the ball because he is expecting his receiver to come back towards the ball which they didn't do this year for some reason. Graham was the worst at sitting back for a ball instead of coming back to the ball which led to at least 2 ints that I can remember.

Fair enough
But It was Nick Saban after hearinmg the recommendation of the team doctors and tried to renegotiate a contract for less money and possibly a back up. Hence that point he wasn't concered about The man... just the arm.

Hope that summed up my thought process for you
