Im not sure what is wrong with him, but we all see it.
Brees didn't almost cost us the Philly game. That happened because a couple of guys in our defense went down. The 2 picks he threw didn't help but Philly caught up mostly because Parys Haralson and Keenan Lewis went down. Yes I agree, he can't do that against Seattle but please don't act like Brees was the reason Philly caught up. He played much better in the second half. And he admitted he tried to force some balls that he shouldn't have and after that he just took what the defense gave him.

Re: Brees due for a road performance like he does in 'Dome?

A bad weather game, I love it, ground and pound, best kind of games. It shows the strength of each player and weakness. We can run it down their throat the same as we did Philly.To me the front 7 of Seattle is built for speed,( their DE's and LB's) not digging in the trenches, I give us that advantage right there. Their O is built for speed our D-line with the exception of JR. are pretty big boys, throw J.Jenkins in there with Bunkley we would be stout against the run, I expect Lofton to be big in this game, as slow as he is against the pass he is perfect for a bad weather game. I think we win by a good margin in good or bad weather, I would like it better in bad and keep an eye on Harper he owes the Seahawks one.

I respectfully disagree about the Brees turnovers. Any time any team turns the ball over(int. or fumble) it takes the ball out of our hands and gives them the ball to try to score. Our D has bailed Brees out a few times this season, it seems like his int.'s have come at the worst times. Until I see the old Brees light fire I'm going to worry about this Brees who tries to force things there that just are not there.

I didn't say the turnovers didn't hurt us , they did. But Philly caught up because guys went down in our defense and we had holes. The Eagles took advantage of that, as any good team would have. And yes, I agree, the D has bailed Brees out a lot this season, but Brees was great in the second half of the wildcard game. In that game the O bailed the D out and that is the way it should be, complimentary ball.

This game could also come down to special teams play

I agree except for the "old Brees" part. I don't think there ever has been a time when Brees didn't throw picks. He throws them all the time, he always has. He takes a lot of chances and tries to put the ball in really tight places and sometimes he throws some real headscrachers like "who the heck was he throwing to?". But he also makes some amazing passes, throws that look impossible, hitting the perfect spot behind a defender from 40 yards downfield or hitting a receiver on a crossing pattern in stride, right in the hands.

With Drew, you gotta take the good with the bad. I've never heard the press refer to him as a "gunslinger" but that's what he is. Sometimes he costs us a game, some years a couple in the season, but he also wins us a LOT more games. He takes chances and competes as hard as any QB I've ever watched. From this fans perspective, I can't think of anybody I'd rather have on my team.

I think we're going to play much better than we did last time over there anyway, but the weather is going to make this a really low scoring game if that forecast doesn't change.
Not trying to piss anyone off but 100% chance of rain does not mean it will rain 100% of the day. It means that there is a 100% chance that rain will fall with in that 24 hour period.

Chance of rain during game hours is 50-60%

Love Brees and what he has done for us. But I think he may need some contact lens.
