Look what happened at the end of the game when he trusted his protection....he got hit from behind and fumbled the ball. Your right though,he should have never thrown into triple coverage. I just don't agree with the fans booing him. He's done way too much good to be criticized so harshly for the mistakes he's made. Although he is contributing to our loses,his mistakes are not the reason we are losing games.
Drew made mistakes last year but we had the defense that could bail him out
I understand the fans point of view, they are paying their hard earned money to watch our team shoot themselves in the foot the exact same way every week

The NFL has and always will be a what have you done for me lately, and lately they have done nothing but let us down
I think it's wrong to boo Brees alone, but people have become accustomed to such high level play from him that when our team starts struggling and he makes a dumb decision the whole situation is magnified

Brees deserves a lot of the blame but so does the defense, they've had multiple opportunities to help Brees and failed to do so
Still, Brees is responsible for 12 turnovers so far this season, until we lower the turnovers, we won't be looking at better than 7-9.

I think its more of a problem now than it was earlier in the season, SP's playcall has been questionable

I agree that we should have ran Ingram on 3rd and 2, the 2nd and 2 play was doomed from the start as soon as we opened in an empty backfield, the 9ers were blitzing all game

I think we should have utilised cooks more, the 9ers could not cover him

They were so aggressive on the blitz, a fly sweep or reverse to cooks could have been lethal.

3rd and 3, 3rd and 2. I almost can't bear to look anymore. A couple of times, I was actually glad when the frat dudes in the row in front of me all stood up on 3rd down, I could just cower in my seat and listen to the crowd reaction to figure out what happened.

Also empty backfield on 2nd and 1. I get that Payton is Payton and Drew is Drew and the Saints are sometimes going to have opportunities to take their shots, but it seems like lately NOTHING good ever happens on 2nd down with that empty backfield. Now it looks like a holdover relic from a different time and era, back when that stuff used to work.

He is an ultimate competitor and his mistakes bother him just as much if not more than it does us. One of his downfalls is he panics under pressure and tries to do too much. Give that man some good protection and watch what he can do. Hell, just go back and watch the Green Bay game. To expect him to be phenomenal without good protection is like trying to have sex on sleeping pills....you might get the job done, but you'll be sloppy and inconsistent and theres a good chance you wont finish strong.
No matter what I would NEVER Boo Drew!

Simply put....

The people who are unhappy with Brees do not know how good we have it right now. Those people will be in for a huge letdown when he is gone and we have another QB, because there's a very good chance the successor to Drew won't be as good as him.

He makes some mistakes, EVERY quarterback does. Nobody is perfect. But more often than not he is amazing and he always gives us a chance.

I agree but in his defense he isn't getting much help and Harper is not there for QBs to exploit.

Any play with a mobile opposing QB.
