Re: Jimmy Garoppolo Saint?

Out of the top ten QB's last season Drew is ranked 9th in interceptions. Only person behind him is Jamie Winston, a rookie. For a HOF QB that is a fairly disturbing fact. If that happens again I want a new QB. Not going to win a lot of games if that number is mid to plus teens.

He also threw for 5200 yards. I mean the law of averages is gonna get you. If he's throwing the ball as much as he did, he's gonna have more pics. I agree there were a couple stupid ones, but how many bounced off WRs hands? Idk. His pics don't bother me as much as the defenses lack of ability to create turnovers and force punts.

Have you ever heard of pass to interception ratio? Brees had 15 interceptions in 673 attempts for an pass/interception ratio of 48.5:1! That is actually pretty awesome. Factor in that he was forced to pass into tiny windows frequently because of the defensive failures and opposing defenses expecting the pass and it is even more amazing.

His number of interceptions would only be disturbing if you didn't understand the metrics involved.

Re: Jimmy Garoppolo Saint?

I wanna see how he does with a serious threat of a run game, or with a serious dump off option in Kamara...

I understand that if you have a lot of turnovers you won't be going to the playoffs. If that number does not come down we are spinning wheels here. I'm not bashing him either just saying that some of the throws are not needed.

Sky's the limit. I have lived and closely followed through all 51 years of Saints QB's, and pardon me Archie, but none have held a candle to what Brees can do today. If anyone thinks that we can easily replace even a lessor version of him anytime soon, they are a fool.

Agreed. The ones that drove me nuts were all the times he tried to quickly dump the ball off to the nearest player if he was going down. Those always lead to interceptions. He almost completely stopped doing it though.
Got to respect a man of his stature learning from mistakes.

No we aren't spinning wheels. As long as the attempts are up so will be the picks. That is nothing on Brees. It is all on the style of play. Brees has never come close to being a reason for the Saints to NOT make the playoffs. Look across the line.

Statistics are meaningless when used out of context.
