Luckily weíve tapped into some players to take the burden off of him so he doesnít have to carry the team. If it werenít for our running game and defense stepping up I think it would really take a toll on him. We may be able to get a couple more years out of him if our defense gets better and he gets a little more protection. He can make it as a smart game manager if he has to but the days of him airing it out to save the day are numbered.
What are you basing Brees only having one season left as a top tier QB and losing a step?

Father Time and the fact heís been throwing short and under a lot more than he ever has. Plays like the pass to Ginn. Itís bound to happen. It doesnít make him a bad QB or reflect on anything heís done in the past. Itís just life.

Re: Drew Brees is staring down his last best shot

I don't like talking about future years, as you never really know what's going to happen... and I think we have a really good shot at winning this year. That being said, I don't think this will be our best season with this group. We have a very good football team... it's just a very flawed football team that is still lacking talent at a few important positions. If we can fill those spots in the draft or in the off-season I think we can dominate the league for a few years.

I believe on the play that you are basing your comments on Brees was pressured and couldn't step into the throw.

I've seen Brady miss throws and I don't read anyone saying he has lost a step and isn't a top tier QB!

It is called terminal negativity. Always expecting the worst.

Re: Drew Brees is staring down his last best shot

Last year many of you, including myself said that if our defense was just middle of the pack our offense had what it takes to make us contenders. Last year our running game wasn’t all that great . Not w here we are, defense is much improved from last year. If our run game is completely shut down or if god forbid Kamara or Ingram goes down do you still think that would be the case?
Our defense has improved but without a running game would you feel as confident knowing it was on Brees to carry the team?
Last year I would have. This year not so much.

He threw for 180 yards in the last 9 minutes against Washington. I think he might still have the ability to win a game or two

Brees doesnt wanna hear any of this. He wants Dan Marinos and Peytons all time passing records. I predict he retires the NFL all time leader in yards and TDs in 3 or 4 yrs. With 2 or 3 championships? WhoDat!

Drew is the Julio Franco of the NFL. He's going to play until he's 60.
