Re: Drew's deep ball is back

I don't think Rex respects Drew much.

- On facing Brees: "Yikes! That's pretty much it. Dude's a surgeon, man. He picks you apart, can make all the throws, all the verticals and things, poised, sees the field, so accurate. Other than that he's not very good, extends plays. He's as good as it gets. I'm just happy Miami never got him, because we would have had to play him twice. Now, it's only once every four years."

I saw that on NFLnetwork and was quite shocked. Rarely do you hear good things said about our team.

Re: Drew's deep ball is back

I've never heard Rex bad mouth the Saints.
Matter of fact he once used us as a model team on how he'd like the Jets to be able to score and move the ball at will

Re: Drew's deep ball is back

I still think Drew underestimates Stills speed. Granted it was an LB but Stills waited on the ball while the LB was full speed and he couldn't catch him.

But his arm strength has led to as many misses as completions deep when our guys have beaten their respective coverages...
It has nothing to do with his arm strength.

A lot of physics that goes into a 40 yard pass. Grip, trajectory, timing of both the pass and the runner... A light breeze while the ball is in air slows it down...

Or..

A- Overthrow - INCOMPLETE
B- Underthrow - INTERCEPTION
C- Slight underthrow - 90% chance my guy catches it.

Drew's typical miss is the underthrown deep ball. Any playoff game or crunch time interception has been due to a short-arm (see @SEA, @SF, @CHI). He's missed many this season short (and sometimes wide, too).

Re: Drew's deep ball is back

I don't think that Drew throws a great deep ball. He is good enough that 28 or more trams would jump at a chance to pick up his huge salary.As a Saint fan you should stop at the next church you pass and give thanks that he is your QB

This sounds like an SAT question...
