Brees is on pace for 24 turnovers this year... Has public stated he lost 2 games based on his own play, his words not mine.

Everyone deserves some blame but Brees is the face of the team, just like he owns the success he owns the failures. He has not played well this year, note I said this year.

I am a Saints fan first, I like drew, but if we could swap him for Rogers, Brady or Manning I would take that in a heart beat.

That's crazy. I actually would take brees over all those guys. The only thing I would swap with those guys is their TD/INT ratio. That's really the only difference this year. Drew needs to cut down on the turnovers.

Ahmad Brooks = Saints drive killer.

Credit 49ers for finding a way to win... good teams do this, even with backups (Willis/Aldon Smith/Bavarro ALL OUT) etc.

3 TURNOVERS at this level = L

Re: Turn-over prone Drew Brees can turn around season

No one player by themselves can win/lose a ball game over 60-75 minutes of game time. In the spirit of this thread, this is the most I've seen Drew turn the ball over since he got here. WR's, RB's & TE's share some blame? Sure. O-Line share some blame? Sure. Play-calling share some blame? Sure.

Kinda knew what kind of day we were all in for with the 1st two offensive possessions...

1st possession: 1 completion/3 attempts for 2 yards with 1 INT
2nd possession: 0 completions/1 attempt for 0 yards (3-and-out)

He rebounded nicely with 3 TDs, but his 2 INTs and his lost fumble helped kill that "W" for us.

I actually agree with most of your points. I'm the first to say I've been guilty of that in the past but as I've watched this season I've noticed brees won't be the sole reason we win or the sole reason we lose regardless of the size of his paycheck. Plus, unlike some qb's he's actually come out in the media and taken all the responsibility for a couple of losses even though it wasn't all him. He even said he agreed with the crowd booing him for throwing the pick before halftime. How many other qb's would've lashed out at the fans for booing.

I'm just saying, we should stop thinking brees or any player is the reason we won or the reason we lost. If we try to get rid of players that "cost us the game" every week we won't have any players left.

Been saying win/lose as a team since little league. It's easy to assess immediate blame saying "The refs jobbed us of a win!" or "Corey White screwed us out of a win" or "The freakin' kicker missed which is why we lost".

It takes little to no effort of thought to say and assess such absolutes.

Agree with you totally. Drew deserves "some" blame as well as the other 52 players on the roster. I can't speak for everyone else but I personally was blaming other players early in the season because to my eyes we shouldn't be as bad as we looked on the field so it was easier to say that this one guy sucks or those 2 guys suck rather than this team as whole isn't good. Every fan wants to believe that if they just change a couple of players at various positions that their team will be better but it's just not that easy

At any rate, time to cheer for March sanchez and the eagles tonight (never thought I'd say that)

Good Drew can turn it around. Bad Drew will kill us. We tend to get equal doses of each. It wouldn't hurt my feelings abit to sit him and go with Ryan. Its all about winning not what you have done.
