It's great that Drew gets all this press about leading the No.1 offense, but we're not converting for touchdowns as when Colston was younger, who later was soldiering through problematic arthritis...

And as a result, we're coming up short on the scoreboard more often...
It's actually our defense that has given us the most success.

2009 best turnover D in the league= 13-3 and the SB
2010 top 5 D in the league= 11-5
2011 top 5 D until Greer got hurt= 13-3
2013 top 5 D= 11-5

The defense is not going to hold if Brees keeps having three and outs starting out. I know you want the defense to help Drew but I want to see Brees put together more long drives like he used to. GB did not have a good defense two years ago, but what do they do run up the score to force the opposition into committing turnovers. That's not what we have shown recently.

And I will say it again, if the saints play the packers in the playoffs, Brees will have to put up points!

You're hiding behind one statistic.

But in your heart you know we are still missing a true #1 wideout.
