Now, I'm not saying that it's time to get rid of Drew. Far from it. But he hasn't played his best football this year. 5,000 yards is great an all; but what good does it do in a losing effort?
Drew Brees is not a "throw to open" QB. He is a timed route QB and if our receivers allow themselves to get checked at the line, let defenders bet between them selves and the ball, or do not run tight routes the ball will be on X and they will be somewhere else.

As far as effort goes, think about what you just said and what he can actually effect. Do not get me wrong but the man can not make the line block for the run game, cant make Hartley make FGs...


All a QB can do is throw for as many yards and TDs as possible. If the play calling is off, running game is off, we cant punch it in from the 3 yard line, receivers play tip drills with his passes, O-line has blocking issues, kicker misses FGs, last minute deep passes are caught by the opposing offenses for TDs, fumbles, etc.... Honestly, what can any QB actually do besides throw his arse off?

Different take... If any one of our running backs had a 1300 yard 12 TD season and we still lost, would you say the yards and TDs are fine but he is not winning games? Look at Adrian Peterson.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

That explains why Brees throws so many untimely picks then.

Re: Saints QB Coach, Lombardi goes to Lions as OC

Before 2006, I always looked at coaching changes as a chance to mix things up and get better.

Now, I don't like when the Saints lose coaches. I'm alway worried that the change in routine will have a negative affect.

I really don't know what kind of affect any individual coaching change will make but I have read good things about Lombardi.

I like the idea of a fresh perspective. View things through a different vantage point.
