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.
The O line also seems to be coming around. That was a lot of Brees' problem last year. No time for receivers to get separation so he just checked down to the big target. His completion percentage was good but not the YAC.

Even though Cooks isn't putting up huge numbers it appears Payton is getting value out of him. His acceleration and speed means he can quickly spread the D, opening up the middle routes for the likes of Watson and Sneed. That wasn't happening last year.

Few people said he was washed up, but many said (myself included) that he didn't have the arm strength. And we were right. No one told any of us that he had any kind of an injury until he got his shoulder trashed against tampa bay, and we KNEW he was messed up. His decision making was bad, too.

Now he's healthy or at least a lot HEALTHIER, and to his credit he is making better decisions, and of course receivers are catching it more consistently.

But I suppose you saw all that coming, right?

Not that it really matters but NOLA says the NFL stats folks have changed the ruling on the Snead fumble and return to a pick 6.
