Brees sets Saints record with 7 TDs in Arena Bowl

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Snead actually did a lot despite the drop. He got a hand in there and also stuck his leg out to slow him down. It was a good hit on the defender at the end of the day. It happens ...

Snead actually did a lot despite the drop. He got a hand in there and also stuck his leg out to slow him down. It was a good hit on the defender at the end of the day. It happens and Snead will learn from it. He made a mistake but made up for it and some.

Now if you want to talk about Willie Snead, I prefer this...

The other receiver was wide open...meh, great pass but he made it much harder than it had to be.

We look like we've been practicing on O. I like. But, can we please stop running the reverse? And, if we want to throw screens, bring PT back.

The other receiver was Brandin Cooks, who 5 minutes earlier dropped a wide open deep pass with no defender in sight.

I'm glad he threw to Snead instead of Cooks.

That makes sense now, I was not able to watch the game.

Re: Brees sets Saints record with 7 TDs in Arena Bowl

All I got to watch was the highlights. What I did see only reinforced the fact that given protection, Brees remains one of, if not the most, accurate passers in the game.

Several of the passes where thrown into pretty decent coverage where only a perfect pass gets the TD.

Watching the Pats - Jets last week, Brady consistently looked off receivers or dumped the ball in situations where Brees would have made the throw. If the Saint's had a D and a better O line, Brees would need a finger transplant for all the rings.

It certainly does appear he's recovered the arm-strength lost with that shoulder injury.

Plenty of zip.

He's one of the best when HEALTHY. Yeah it's nice to have more protection, but I've seen him play much better under pressure than he did down the stretch last year and early this year.

two of the last three games, he's also made better decisions. He's gotten back to feeling the pressure and moving around, instead of just standing there waiting for Brandin Cooks to get open. He's seeing the whole field, trusting his other receivers, and moving around when he needs to. And the receivers, in turn, appear to have gotten more confidence. The lack of spreading the ball and moving out of the pocket has been my gripe for about two years. When he got hurt, he was useless.

I said two out of the last three games because I saw a lot of standing around by Drew in the Colts game. Not sure what that was about, but obviously he got it corrected, and as Danno said he's got the zip back.

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

I have to disagree, my friend. He caught it and turned up field. I think the league has made us expect that almost any time the ball comes out of the receivers hands, it must be a drop. With that in mind, I wasn't sure how it was going to be ruled despite what I thought. But they actually ruled as I thought they should.

It always sucks when a quarterback gets charged with a pick because of a stupid mistake by his receiver, so it was due justice no matter what anyone thinks of the ruling.
