Drew's deep ball is back

Anybody else seeing this?

Most of last year and even times in 2011 his touch on longer passes seemed to be off. And early this season too.

But those two passes to Stills Sunday were right on the money. If this offense is about to add a deep passing game we are going to be having some fun down the stretch.

Better to start our peak in week 9 than week 2.

I actually thought the first TD to Stills was a split second late, but I think it looked that way because the LB in coverage was so slow. He later got torched on the Graham TD.

Brees definitely looked good, and the lack of drops seemed to give him more confidence to really zip it in there

the whole play was a construction in genius as far as the timing, I feel like stills could have been running in water and it still would have been a Td. It actually seemed like the double move route that he ran didn't even have to be there. Like he could have just run A 9 route without the double move and still scored. Might have been the angle they showed it at but there was no lb in any of the shots I saw until after stills got the ball.

Re: Drew's deep ball is back

I never really saw a problem with it. He's always slightly under thrown his deep passes. I don't think this season has been much different than years past.

I think this Brees player may be a good QB for us soon.

Re: Drew's deep ball is back

He is good at the back shoulder pass. The TD to Lance Moore was a frippen bullit that he fit into a window the size of a dime.

And that's a bit of a problem; other than Payton Manning or Aaron Rodgers (the latter could use personality disorder therapy), there's no quarterback I'd rather have...

But his arm strength has led to as many misses as completions deep when our guys have beaten their respective coverages...
