No such thing as "due" except for pregnancy, bills, taxes, etc...

Brees will play if and when the weather is appropriate and our receiving krewe are fit and on form.
We will have inclement weather in Seattle. I do not know if Graham is 100% going in. Is PT ready?
So we have to adapt our game accordingly.

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.
Im with the others. Yes he did. 1 interception put the Eagles on the 45 for 7 pts, and the 2nd bomb didnt amount to much, but killed a posession and the clock.
The Bomb was clearly Stills fault, but the 1st one was a horrible pass in 3 man coverage.
Plus he was throwing low or high for most of the Ĺ, and missed passes to move the chains. Its not only the interception that hurt us.
Taking away Brees mistakes you would have to erase 7pts from the eagles score, and think that we might have 3-7pts more if he had made those passes.
This has happened in all the games we have lost. Im not saying he should be a robot, but hes not managing the game like he did last year, and seems to lose it sometimes.
IF that was Denver or Seattle, we would have lost. They know how to convert turnovers or stalled offense. I love Brees, but everyone is accountable for their actions on the field.

Saints proved that pigs could fly in 2009.
Now its time for another miracle SuperBowl and go where no pig has gone before.

They don't really get what we in the south would call "heavy" rain. It's almost always that light incessant drizzle.

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 kind of agree with you. AP fumbles a lot, but that comes with hard running. Brees throws interceptions because he threads the needle. But I also agree with Hallow. This is not the Brees of old on the road that used to put up 30pts,even with ints, to win the game and bail the defense out.
Medias been messing this up for some time now. The offense usually has no problems on the road, its the defense that has been falling apart for 7 years.
But this year Brees , and yes the offense , have been stopped, turnovers, or faling apart on the road, and the defense has saved them.
I was shocked when Brees missed a pass before. I can almost count them hes so dang accurate. Amazing really, but for some reason now I get worried when our offense is in an Brees is throwing. I dont know what it is.

looking at the weather forecast now is not going to do you any good. I live up in the Pacific North Wet. If you want to know what the weather is going to be like look at the satellite image. Weather forecasts are unrealiable in this part of the world.

"I love Brees, but everyone is accountable for their actions on the field."

I doubt anyone holds Drew more accountable for his misfires than himself.

I like your thinking but to score 4 points the Seahawks need to tackle a player in the Saints endzone twice, possible, but highly unlikely
