Is Drew Brees the worst QB when under pressure?

The answer is yes, which actually shocked me. I knew Brees was bad this year when under pressure but I didn't expect him to be the worst in the NFL. Brees in the past was never this bad when under pressure, in fact teams that blitzed Brees regularly got beat with a deep pass, but now teams are no longer afraid to bring pressure.

"No quarterback in the NFL has been worse while under duress this year than Drew Brees, who needs to start making better decisions under pressure when the Saints (2-4) host the Green Bay Packers (5-2) on Sunday night.

Brees now has a league-worst passer rating of 19.4 when he's either under duress or being hit, according to ESPN Stats & Information -- a number that has plummeted with three ugly interceptions over the past two games against the Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brees has completed 20 of 47 passes for 199 yards while under pressure with zero touchdowns, four interceptions and five sacks."

Wonder why he has digressed in this area & why SP hasn't addressed the issue.

I really didn't think I needed to stipulate the fact we are talking about current QBs actually playing the game now...

No comment, though I will say it's one of the "Thou shalt not's..." on here, from what I've experienced.

Re: Is Drew Brees the worst QB when under pressure?

from the Mike Triplett article..."And, at times, Brees and the Saints' offensive line have looked outstanding, like they did during the first three-plus quarters...

But then suddenly, the Saints line couldn't seem to block anyone in the Lions' stifling defensive front as they coughed up a 13-point lead in a stunning 24-23 loss. Brees threw a career-high 10 straight incomplete passes in the fourth quarter -- including a game-changing interception he admitted was too telegraphed."


It's called running out of gas because everyone is over 30 years old...

Younger, Faster, Stronger, Hungrier - that's what their front seven is and our offensive line isn't...

I am not pleased with his perfomance vs Tampa (dumb mistakes).
Other than that, he was Drew Brees, most of the time avoiding his O-linemen.
