With Drew at QB defenses have to account for everyone.

I respect Coltson but I'm calling BS, loosing Sproles took away some of the predictability to this offense if anything the questionable play calling is more to blame

Valid point, all I can say is they have young players that are of uncommon quality in terms of attitude. Look, when we have players missing flights, late for meetings etc...no way that was going on in Seattle.

I don't think Sproles was a leader. I thought Henderson was a leader more so than Colston. Payton also is our offensive leader as well and Brees is the guy that makes calls in the huddle. I think the leaderhip should be reserved for defense because young defensive players are not gonna resonate with Brees. Its because of backgrounds too. This plays a big role.

Can't believe I'm saying this but the loss of Jenkins and Harper hurt this team more than the loss of Sproles and I was happy to see can't tackle and can't cover leave

We don't have what it takes to be that team and Brees is certainly not that type of character(don't get me started on Wilson). We have to play defense a prideful way.
