Re: Brees under-throwing some passes

You guys are blind if you cant see that his arm strength isnt what it was a few yrs ago. His ablity to throw the deep ball has dropped off .im not saying he cant do it anymore he can just not as often and if you cant see that you don't watch the games must be listening on the radio or something.

Arm strength may be minutely less but the problem is he's taking too long to make the decision on the long throw at times.

WR's not named Thomas aren't getting any separation. No one is open.
Romo pointed this out a couple of times on Sunday.

Bingo! If no one is open, a pocket QB takes a lot more time in the pocket.
The 2017 offensive line is outstanding in run blocking and average at best in pass blocking. It's been like this since week 1.

Re: Brees under-throwing some passes

Does anyone think Payton decided to beef up the run game for no reason?

Surely he is a pass-first coach. So why waste the resources on the run game?

Does Sean see something we don't see?

Maybe? Just my observations

Exactly what I said in another thread, receivers not named Michael Thomas are letting us down. Ginn, Coleman or snead cannot create separation.

We need better receivers.

Our O line was getting blown up. Ingram wasn't finding holes. Kamara had some good runs, however it wasn't like we were dominating and stopped running. We couldn't run or pass.

I had to laugh on this one. Connor Culp is actually still in school (LSU Tigers) as a place kicker but I knew you meant Cooper Kupp (Rams WR). These two get mixed up all the time by CBS/ESPN analyst.

Read here what scouts stated were Kupp's biggest weakness:

WEAKNESSES A little upright though his routes. Lateral quickness out of breaks underneath provide no early separation. Operated as big slot but could lack separation quickness to open clean throwing windows underneath for NFL quarterbacks. Build-up runner who doesn't seem to eat up the early cushion. Some scouts question ability to be a productive starter as outside receiver. Excessive fakes and jukes into breaks at times; will need to win with more efficient routes. Protracted gear-down getting into breaks for deep comebacks.

He's been the exact opposite.
