Also gotta think about the defense he is going up against right now. We have always had trouble covering tight ends

It is a good thing Brees is talking about last year. I thought for a second our defense stilled sucked.

Mitch, I think you missed the point. Drew isn't making these observations based on Fleener now in our offense against our defense. He made those observations based to film study of AFC South teams last year when Fleener was a Colt.

I really hope though that Drew doesn't become single minded in terms of getting the ball to Fleener. The last 2 years JG was here the offense suffered because of too much of a focus of getting the ball the JG.

I am hoping that we now have a core group of receivers including Cooks, Thomas, Sneed, Fleener, Hill, Spiller, Ingram, Cadet, and even Hooman that opposing defenses will be incapable of effectively covering any group on the field.

The Saints passing offense should not be about one receiver. It should be about Brees using the best available receiver on each and every passing play.

Yeah, if I was doing Fantasy Football, I might pick him over Gronk. No, I would. There were many times Drew made Graham look like the MVP and unstoppable. Without Drew, Graham is ???. Fleener is very similar to Graham physically. We're hoping Fleener is a more willing blocker though he is average at best at it but he is a more polished route runner than Graham probably with better hands. No mistake. He's tall and fast. Like 6" 6 with 4.6 speed or better. Who DAT!
