Drew Brees 2013

This isn't one of those the sky is falling threads. That said...

Has anyone else started cringing when Drew throws the ball? He looks shaky and not as sharp as he use to be. Any legitimate concerns or have we just become too spoiled to his Hall of Fame ways?

Yeah, a little, but I also have the "This is going to be beautiful" feeling when he lets the ball fly also.

I do cringe however, when I see those little shuttle passes like he threw yesterday. I had to have CPR done on me after that little toss.

Some of those passes to Graham and Sproles where on point, but I think he's just as unsure of his o line as everyone else is.

Re: Drew Brees 2013

He has taken a few good licks this season.. May be a little fear that he is going to get nailed as soon as he releases.

Re: Drew Brees 2013

I worry every time he has to go through a progression. It's like the middle tier of the defense becomes invisible to him after the snap. I also anticipate an underthrow on any pass over 20 yards.

Re: Drew Brees 2013

I think its the hits he's taken. Any QB that starts thinking..."oh ****, gotta hurry" is going to play a little less comfortable. More reason to get that running game going so teams can stop pinning their ears back and gunning for Drew.

I had that eerie feeling throughout the game as well. It was very uncomfortable and had a Garret Hartley-ish feel to it. Hopefully he'll cure this feel next week by lighting up the Dolphins.

Re: Drew Brees 2013

This is why we need the run game so badly. All this throwing, streaks, breaking passing records and piling up yards and all that stuff is fun, but we really need the run game to extend the life of Brees' arm, long term. Elway won a Super Bowl at 39, and thanks to advances in sports medicine athletes can go even longer today, look at Favre etc. so you cannot say that the prospect of Brees even at 40 or beyond is not viable. But Elway had a phenomenal running game in those late years, when the Broncos were a perennial contender... In the earlier years when it was all on his shoulders to be the hero, running around the field in a pass-happy offense, those were the years the Broncos lost.
