Turn-over prone Drew Brees can turn around season
 
"NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees has produced a lot of rare moments inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome over the past nine years. But this was a new one on Sunday -- the New Orleans Saints quarterback being showered by boos from the home fans after his second interception in the first half of Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers."

Saints' turnover-prone Drew Brees: Good isn't outweighing bad - ESPN

This season, as usual will ride Drew's shoulders either to success or failure. While everyone would agree we have defensive issues (which have been corrected in the last 4 games) Drew and co have never needed a great defense to be a winning team (currently 19th ranked D). We all expect more from Drew, and he admits he isn't playing well.

Point being; if Drew turns his season around this will be a very dangerous team to play at just the right time. Our record doesn't matter as long as we win the South. I think Drew corrects whatever is causing him these mental mistakes and we go 6-1 to finish the season. This is very doable, on paper we are extremely talented, it's time to execute.

I can handle Brees making a bad decision every so ofton, he is now making them to ofton. It's on his shoulders to make better decisions. Our run game is solid, our recievers look solid, our D is playing much better, he really can't ask for much better than that.

I agree....i guess I expect more...some of us expect others on the team to be perfect or near perfect.

There was no need for him to force that pass into triple coverage before half time

Protection was great and he had a ton of time in the pocket

He made a lot of mistakes but it wasn't all him, colston will end up getting cut at the end of the season, how in the hell did he drop that 40 yard bomb that in recent years he's made with his eyes closed

Then for good measure the defense didn't want to be outdone and leaves someone uncovered 50 yards down field

Well done Corey and Vaccaro, you just blew another one.

As much as drew has been pressing this year, I can't put this loss or any of the losses solely on him.

I think it's time for a little brutal honesty. This team as a whole just isn't very good this year (particularly when it's winning time). Whether it's a missed block, dropped pass, bad throw, blown coverage, missed tackle, untimely penalty, brain fart by the coaches, etc. This team just finds ways not to execute to win games. At the beginning of the season it was Ryan's defense losing us games. Then it was Sean payton's playcalling. Then it was brees arm strength. Now it's Brees turnovers. We just need to except there are no easy scapegoats. This team just isn't as good as we thought.

Can we still make the playoffs? Absolutely, we play in a division where no one is above 500. However, we need to stop trying to find places to focus our aggression after a loss (me included). All we can do now is support our team and hope everyone else in our division keeps sucking. Time to sit back and enjoy the show good or bad. That's what fans do.

Trying to keep the conversation positive here gents...

We are in control and if Drew poses one of our biggest problems then I am sure he will get it corrected. Every player goes through a series of tough games, hopefully Drew puts these games behind him and can take a page from Rogers (relax).

Brees doesn't consistently make mistakes, the fact that people are blaming him is comical...this man passed for 5,000 yards with a mediocre receiving corps and gets no respect....Corey White comes out publicly and says he'd rather be a nickleback instead of a starting corner....Vaccaro only had 6 interceptions his whole college career so we knew that wasn't happening in the pros....but we blame Brees????
