I guess I'm not the only one who thinks Drew Brees is pretty damned special.

W R O N G ...

Drew threw crisp passes and looked sharp when he wasn't running for his life or getting hit.

Don't forget he ran a flawless come from behind drive at the end.

It is well deserved.

Even playing hurt and "dinking & dunking" passes was also attributed to them trying to give our young receivers some consistency & confidence.

Also NBC showed the difference in Drew's throwing motion compared to years past. It has definitely changed due to the injuries in 2014 & 2015.

However it shows Drew's competitiveness, toughness, can do attitude & leadership.

The rest of the team as a whole sucks. Why you continue to try to blame it all on the best player on our roster I a haven't a clue. Tom Brady has won four Super Bowls dinking and frickin dunking.

What is your problem?

Crap, this will just give him more ammo for a pricey extension.
