I agree that he did at times also, our recievers needed to get open but did not.

Well no **** Sherlock. And also, stop trying to go for it all on every down. Come on Brees, you have a football smart that very few have. It's time to find it again and start using it.

Re: Brees says he held the ball too long a few times against Panthers

I thought he had a horrible first half of the game. He is a great QB but a few times this season he has shown flashes of last season. He needs to move in the pocket more like he did in his younger days. The O-Line isn't nearly good enough for him to just sit in one spot.

I watched Romo, of all people, with a few great plays just by moving away from the defensive rush.

Maybe it was through beer goggles but Drew seemed a bit too frazzled. Low confidence in that O-Line?

Re: Brees says he held the ball too long a few times against Panthers

I like our players but I think we need a real number 1 WR, I don't think the committee approach is working anymore

Like I said yesterday, based on who we bring in every play I can 8 out of 10 times call what type of play we are about to run, its getting very old very quickly

Ingram by the second quarter was averaging 11.8 yards per carry, we went away from him and started throwing BS screen passes which lost us like 16 yards

Brees needs to take a paycut, as much as people dont believe it or dont want to believe it - he is the reason he is getting drove into the turf every other play, I'm glad he got paid because now he is seeing the effects of his holdout

Coach payton needs to wise up, we have lost 3 games in the exact same fashion now and he still hasn't learned anything from them.

He held out and we couldnt franchise nicks, Grubbs is a good player but he is no Carl Nicks whilst he was here
The LT spot is a complete mess, brees either needs to free up some dollar or we have to draft complete O line

If you can call that play a fake FG, was pathetic

Brees throws some dumbass picks, that one to keuchly, what the hell was he doing?

How in the hell did malcolms jenkins miss that sack on cam newton on the game winning play? that was embarrassing

Re: Brees says he held the ball too long a few times against Panthers

+1. Good observation Dizzle88.

Why not SELL OUT Malcolm!!! Jump, lunge, DIVE. Take a page out of Troy Polumalu safety playbook. Did he think a large man like Cam was going to just fall down because he 'whiffed' by him?? Very poor effort by Jenkins...

It may be time to move past MJ this off season.

Jenkins is like the reggie bush of our defense, shows off all that talent and playmaking ability and then makes a bone headed play which (whilst not the only reason we lost) pretty much lost the game
