Brees' interceptions
 
Coming off a career high year for interceptions, I think Drew is doing his best job ever as far as that goes. He has figured out how to take a sack and only once have I seen him try to dump off the ball when he is going down which used to lead to an interception every god damned time. A lot of the ones he has thrown have been off of tipped balls or a direct result of a receiver not being able to hold onto the ball. He must have worked on it a lot this offseason. Guy never stops trying to improve.

Not wanting to deal with a pissed off head coach probably has something to do with it as well!

O lines performance isn't helping he has to hurry alot of passes also so a much higher risk of pics

Just a silly thought here but if we could run the ball better and our O-line did'nt look like they were getting prison raped by every D-line they face, Brees might not throw so many times and GET PICKED OFF!!!!

The Saints ran the ball well against the patricheats and for some reason abandoned the run.

I am not saying there aren't issues with our O-line, but if the Saints would run the ball more they become an almost unbeatable team.

Maybe half the time, how many of those little dump offs have gone to PT for gains?

Seriously, why act surprised?!

Drew himself even said he was trying to do way to much last year with all the suspensions and horrible defense...

Only Drew knows how much pressure he was under and everyone knew that he would get back to his old self with Sean back + a competent defense.

I was thinking the same thing last Sunday Dude, watching Brees throw two ints. Both were because of tipped balls. Then I realized that he hasn't thrown any of those cock-eyed shuttle pass interceptions this year.

Any dump offs to PT this year werent out of desperation as he was going down. They have just been either ****ty play calling or because he had no where to go. There is a difference between dumping it off in desperation on a dumb decision trying to avoid a sack and just trying to make a play where there is not one.
Im not saying dump offs in general are bad plays. They are awesome when they work and quite often do, but just dumping it off as you are going down is not smart and hasn't worked out well for Brees. I have only seen it once this year and it did result in a small gain.

Remember we lost Oline coach Kromer who is doing a great job in Chicago. they are running the ball well.
