You won't find many games where you'd take another QB over Brees but given the supposed conditions of today's game, the nod has to go to RWilson for the above reasons.

If you think about it critically, you'll realize I'm not typing while shaking Hawk pom poms and wearing Green/Blue shaded lenses.

That's not how I roll.
Of course that's how you roll. That's why you're here.
You're taking the second year QB that hasn't even been in an NFCCG over the seasoned Superbowl winner that breaks records every year.

We all know Brees doesn't have a cannon but is more of a timing and finesse passer with great touch.
Ummm... Yeah....

In 2013 the Saints (Drew) was 3rd in the NFL in passing attempts over 20 yards and 2nd in attempts over 40 yards

In 2012 the Saints (Drew) was 2nd in the NFL passing attempts over 20 yards and 3rd in attempts over 40 yards

In 2011 the Saints (Drew) was 2nd in the NFL in passing attempts over 20 yards and 3rd in attempts over 40 yards.

I'll let you look up his completion percentage over 20 yards. Most years it's the best in the NFL.

Pretty good for a "finesse" passer, huh?

(You really might want to look this stuff up before you post. It's pretty easy to find.)

Either I wasn't clear, ya'll are a bit defensive or didn't have quality reading comprehension.

I am NOT talking about Brees completing quality touch and finesse passes in the confines of a 70 degree dome.

We're discussing windy conditions where Brees' lack of velocity could be a detriment and thus, more checkdowns.

I pull that 2011 link for verification and you may want to re-evaluate.

Brees was tied for 3rd in 20+. They are completions, not attempts. Ne had 72, GB had 70, SD had 69, Saints had 69. You were way off on 40+. He didnt have #3..... NYG had 18, Det 16, Gb 16, zona 15, Ne 14, Oak 14, Ten 14, Cincy 11, texans 11, dallas 11, saints 11. 3rd? cmon!

Besides, you should really calculate as a percentage of attempts where brees has 650+ avg over past 4 years.

How do you explain being #19 in yds per completion THIS year?

In conclusion, this is about todays wind oriented game, not the dome. It's not a put down to call brees a finesse passer with great touch. He moves defenders well with his eyes.

He doesn't have a cannon. Cmon now.

If you're going to quote stats please quote correctly and understand that it's not always about totals, but %

Oh really? Well, what are you doin' here then? I'll give you a hint, one of two things: 1) Makin' yourself feel better about your team's chances today and 2) just tryin' to start some sh*t -- because you don't feel very good about your team's chances today.

Yeah, fearless and noble........ that's how you troll.

Oh, changing the subject, didn't see that comin.

Not only are you coming off as a blind homer, it looks like you're trolling.

You should take this to the Ultimate Smack Talk! section of the forums.

Re: The fact that Seattle is expecting us to run the ball and preparing for it

I don't care if they know we're running.
Run the damn ball!! That's how you control the line of scrimmage, break down their defense, and keep their safeties and LB's guessing. Doesn't matter if we only get 2 yards. Eventually we'll get 6, then 8, then 12. Then we beat them with play-action. But if we don't run, we have NO CHANCE.

I have but I can still be nervous. I usually have written off playoff upsets as game film knowledge of the losing opponent in the regular season and catching the other team offguard. I hope we win, but the town of Seattle has that team emotional and its because of 2006 sb. I usually do not believe a fanbase can have that much impact on how a team performs but it seems they do play a big role. If we win, there are going to be some devastated seahawks fans.
