What is your problem?
Everything is always Drew Brees and the offenses fault. Lol. You didn't know that about Teddy? Don't try to discuss stats or logic with him. He refuses to acknowledge it.

Re: Drew Brees named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

So much pointless Drama over Drew. I love the guy and what he's done for us. He's not the same player, at least not right now, that he used to be. There's no reason for anyone to take offense to that. He threw nothing but short passes until the very end. Yes he DID complete those intermediate passes, and that's great, but most of those were wide open throws. He did what he needed to do, but so did Luke McCown last week. McCown faced a far superior defense and it was on the road.

Don't lose your mind over that statement. Drew is a hall of famer, Luke is not. This simply means Drew is banged up and we're not able to open things up very much. He got 80 yards on one play, which was a great play, but it was mostly made by CJ Spiller.

I say this because I see a lot of people wagging their finger at people because Drew won a game. What did he do that anyone said he couldn't? I'll be happy to win games like we did on sunday night for the rest of the season, if it works. But what are the chances of that? How many games are going to be resting on a silver platter for us to barely squeak by?

I'm happy for any kind of win at this point, but I couldn't help but notice the pompous chest beating of some.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I agree, Brees was a game manager and not a gunslinger.

Re: Drew Brees named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Everyone appreciates toughness, competitiveness etc. Stupidity however, is somehow ok? The man is injured. It is a long season. Backup generator is working fine. Let's wear out, ruin, destroy our best player? Drew is not only player of the week but among the top 5 players of the decade. Let him heal. Putting him in front of 300 lb monsters...just not smart.

Re: Drew Brees named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Brees doesn't come across as a yell and scream kind of leader. From videos I've watched, he looks like a mentor and teacher. Hebert didn't have the talent to be yelling at anyone, it came across as bush league too.

**** the Saints finally land a HoF QB and you want to nit pick him. Enjoy the ride because I got a feeling you would one of those that after 10-15 years of crappy QBs you would be one of those saying man wish we had someone like Brees

Re: Drew Brees named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

I've read some posts saying we should extend Drew now. Let's wait until the end of the season and see what kind of finishing power he has late in the year.
