This does concern me

Rodgers, Manning, and Brady have dominated their divisions and won them every year. Brees has not. I know it could be the NFC South curse and now that Carolina broke that curse(I still think its a curse) that won't be a excuse now. This is a concern and since Seattle and SF have been, and no Arizona replaces SF, dominating on the defensive side, if we don't win the division we have only one chance to get in as a wild card and not two. Idk what it is, also but Rodgers, Brady, and Manning make teams that cannot play top defense afraid of them or teams with unconfident QBs. Brees hasn't seemed to have that. We don't seem to rattle Atlanta like Green Bay has rattled Chicago.

Re: This doe concern me

Green Bay owns their division, and so does New England. Why we can't do it in the South is pretty concerning. The AFC East is a joke though to be honest. Not one QB is on the likes of Newton or Ryan. Chicago is a joke and Detroit just seems to have bad luck against Green Bay.

Re: This doe concern me

We try to put everything on Drew's shoulders. Give him a slight running game and defense that isn't completely trash and we would have 2 more superbowl titles.

It's no secret that Payton hasn't worried about the D or running game in the past. Being a former QB himself his philosophy centered around the QB winning the game. The good news is Payton has finally woken up and realized we need a running game and strong defense.

The NFC South has been built to stop us. Unfortunately, we haven't stayed ahead of the curve.

I thought we just signed a deer to the practice squad. Or maybe to shore up that LB spot.

Turns out there's no mention of a female deer in here at all!!

Re: This doe concern me

Another thing that irritates me is those three QBs all getting three NBC games a year where Brees after a good year gets just 2.

This isn't about being sb eligible its about Brees not owning his division every year.

As they say nothing runs like a deer! Good idea though sign the deer to the practice squad and see if our secondary can catch Bambi.

Re: This does concern me

Manning and Brady have played in awful divisions nearly every year. The NFC north has generally been one of the most overrated divisions in football because of the teams names.

But the Saints un the AFC South ir West and Brees has far more titles. Like it or not the South is a competitive division with 4 teams that over the years can beat anyone in there day
