Is there a defensive coverage Drew Brees can't succeed against? The short answer is no.
BY NICK UNDERHILL | NUNDERHILL@THEADVOCATE.COM MAY 20, 2017 - 9:42 AM



Patrick Peterson thought he knew how to solve Drew Brees. Not permanently, or even for a quarter. Just for a moment here and there.

When the Cardinals faced the Saints last season, Brees was coming off a pair of games in which he threw a combined six interceptions. People were concerned. Was Brees hurt? Was he suddenly fading? Naturally, when the Arizona cornerback spoke with New Orleans media before the game, the conversation centered on what was going on with the Saints' offense.

Some of those interceptions were squarely on Brees. He had a few passes jumped and was off the mark on others, but Peterson didn't overreact. He explained that it looked like the Saints’ receivers let the quarterback down on a couple of plays and. And Brees always bounces back, Peterson noted.

Yes. It's the defense that shows up when Drew throws the ball to only one receiver all game. No worries about that now as we traded him to Seattle. If you're wondering how much better he's doing there than he did with us due to Payton and Guido, I'm certain that will guy can tell you.

The receivers let him down............Fleener and Cooks. Because Thomas was open against Detroit. Maybe Brees could not have time to find him open? Maybe the oline actually struggled in certain games at the guard positions.

Blame should go to the Oline but it's the RT not guards that let Brees down which has been address in the draft

Hopefully we got past the sucking on offense...
Wait... I mean defense.

Let's not forget 2 things...
#1 There is another professional NFL team out there.
#2 Our offense isn't the problem.


Now for something new...

Well I don't see Streif giving up that job until he retires. And a veteran is always going to win in camp.

Not forget 2006 when Jahri Evans won the starting RG spot from a veteran OG

What a simple-minded comment

If that were the case; why even give udfa's a chance at making the roster? Pierre Thomas was a udfa; remember? Or was that before you started playing fantasy football?
