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.

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...

Says who? Every year crappy rookie QBs start over crappy veteran QBs. Let's
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?

Exactly where did Strief (learn to spell OUR player's names correctly) "throw shade" at Bret Ingalls? Was that some of the bullcrap that was twisted by a web blogging hack?

Strief said in an interview after Ingalls was replaced ...

"Anytime you switch offensive line coaches, there's a lot of ways to do it, and I think they all have kind of fundamental differences from each other in the same way that Coach Marrone was different than Kromer who was different than Bret," Strief said. "Sometimes there's fit issues. Coaches like to do things a certain way and maybe he doesn't want the guys that are vested doing that. And I don't know that was the case with Bret, but I think some of the stuff we did with Bret was a little bit different than what we were used to, just some technique stuff that was different, some theories ...

"I think Dan is closer to the norm and what guys were used to. Again, we haven't put pads on and we'll see if that helps at all. I know that just having a fresh message was good for guys."
Referencing that statement the web hack, Larry Larmeu, posted the following tweet ...

Larry @LarryLarmeu
Sounds like Strief is basically saying "glad we fired the old OL coach because he was weird and it didn't go well." https://twitter.com/Kat_Terrell/stat...52637846298624

Once again, get your facts straight, or better yet, actually use facts for a change.

Will; I have a quote you may want to heed: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt "
