While I agree the window is closing for Brees, we saw last season that if he has protection, he is still one of the best in the game.

Nice. Now where are the analytics weighted by the timing and impact of interceptions?

Don't need anything to tell me this:

Give Brees 1-2 more seconds and he gives you this:

- 5,000yds passing or more
- 40tds passing or more
- 70% completion percentage or more
- 12 int's or less

Settling for 3 or being conservative, that's my only hit on Brees. He doesn't have that gear. I like the attitude but sometimes it's just not needed. He'll throw it anywhere at anytime. Very agressive to a fault sometimes.

I can say that nobody in the at least 6 season that QB threw for 5000 yards win the big one.

The San Fran game is a perfect example of that

Time winding down to half time, in field goal range and Brees throws into triple coverage to Jimmy Graham and its picked.

Hell even the bucs game in week 17, he threw into quadruple coverage to colston and it was picked.

Re: Pro Football Focus vs. The Great Drew Brees Decline Debate

I can't speak for the guy and he'd never say this anyway, but I suspect he felt like nothing shy of 30 points was good enough last year (and almost any year but 2009).

I suspect that the number of defensive stops or turnovers generated is inversely proportional to boneheaded picks thrown by Brees.
