Brees turnovers

What I take from this game is that both Brees and Payton need to accept the fact that for the first time in years we look to have an actual real threat running the ball. They do not need to rely strictly on Brees and the air game like they have in the past. Brees is getting older and the older he gets the smarter he has to play and the same goes with Payton and his play calling. Brees doesn't need to carry the weight of the entire offense on his shoulders anymore. Can he still do it on his own? Yes probably to some extent but why should he when we look to have a solid running game. There were at least 3 other times I saw Brees make some very scary and stupid throws that could have easily resulted in turnovers. He has shown in the past that he will force the ball in a panic at times.

I just hope to god Payton realizes what he has in the run game and uses it. You don't get points for style. He could have easily taken more time off the clock in that last drive too.

Re: Brees turnovers

I would like to say that our corners apparently suck ballz. Our secondary was just atrocious today. Get Champ Bailey back in there, he couldn't have been as bad as this!

Re: Brees turnovers

Brees only had 1 turnover; Colston had the other.

That is all

We still didn't use the running game to our advantage.

There was a lot that the Saints didn't do to our advantage.

Re: Brees turnovers

Brees was sharp for the most part today. A couple over/under-thrown balls but nothing atrocious. Good coverage on the endzone INT - Brees forced it.

More bothered by the defensive apathy than anything.

Re: Brees turnovers

We should have continued to run the ball/screen in the second half,

Re: Brees turnovers

The offense contributed to the loss by not converting one of the first 2 field goals into 7 points & of course turning it over in the endzone didn't help either.
