Live by the pet peeve....
I definitely dislike that about Geno Smith, and I had a feeling Kap would get exposed. Just being honest, I much rather have a white QB in the NFL. Except in RG3's case, I believe in him. But I wouldn't trade anybody for Drew. I've grown attached to number 9.

But yeah, heavy picks bother me no matter the QB.

Sit on the street outside my house when Drew throws an INT or shovels it to a defender... You wont even have to roll your window down to hear me..
I was about to ask you where the hell you found a chart like that.

Re: Brees

I cant find video because it was an incomplete pass. Did Drew over throw Meachem?

Re: Brees

The coverage brees was dealing with was outstanding. They were blanketing our recievers. Brees made mistakes, but stepped up and made the throws in the end. I better run game would have helped him immensely.

Re: Brees

Sorry,since the big contract he has not played as well.

Call it age or whatever.

Maybe too much time acting like the Mannings & whoring himself for any & all products.

Re: Brees

Did Colston make that grab with one arm? I think he did.

No, I believe he used both hands.

I don't think anybody fails to see how great Drew Brees is, today and in the history of the game. My initial post is around the decision making that seems to be getting more Favre-like (I don't feel inaccuracy is an issue with Brees, the rain probably affected him). That second INT was part of a growing trend of Brees making critical turnovers. In that situation, we were in FG range up by six points. A FG would have made it a two-possession game. An incomplete pass would have been a victory there, but an INT for six the other way was a ten-point and momentum swing of epic proportions. We were fortunate that the defense stepped up with a minute left and Lindell missed that kick. I think back over the last couple of years and can remember right off the top of my head some throws that he made that we never saw in his earlier years in NO. Again, as I posted in my initial post, he's a top three QB in the league, but he needs to take better care of the ball.
