QB Pressure Profiles: NFC South

Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints
Strength: LT
Weakness: RT

Brees’ profile looks similar to Newton’s as he performs much better against left tackle pressure (+11.2, 89.2 QB Rating) than right tackle pressure (-6.1, 69.0 QB Rating). Every short quarterback that enters the league is immediately compared to Brees, usually unfairly, with the major concern being the handling of pressure up the middle when it’s harder to find passing lanes. Brees has avoided disaster in this area as he ranks in the middle of the pack with a -5.2 grade against interior pressure. No quarterback has taken advantage of a clean pocket as much as Brees as his +211.9 grade is the league’s highest since 2008.

That's true, but I guess it is encouraging that it doesn't seem to faze him too badly. I'm optimistic that whomever starts at LT will do a good enough job but it could be a much worse situation if Drew wasn't so good. Makes me really interested to see how Bushrod does up in Chicago with a different guy under center.

Conversely, we've got to be happy the Falcons don't bring pressure from the left. Or right. Or the middle.

Maybe this is why I don't like Strief.

Yeah, it'll be a cold, blustery day at Soldier Field and Cutler will be having another of his infamous meltdowns on his offensive line ... the #2 field camera pans over to capture a shot of Bushrod and the, "Jermon, we're not in Kansas anymore" expression on his face tells all ... the grass is not always greener on the other side, .

I wonder if Cutler took out any additional life insurance after the Bears signed Bushrod?

BRod will be fine in Chicago under Kromer IMO.

Or the fact that running to the right will be easier with Osi on the end.

Which is why we have all-pro OG's instead of all-pro OT's.
