That’s total bull crap. He doesn’t want anyone’s record. He just wants to win games. If the game is a runaway like in Buffalo then he may try in stretch it but He wants championship.

Re: Drew Brees is staring down his last best shot

Brees is missing a few receiving toys this year

The screen game is fabulous most of the time w Kamera and Ingram

Michael Thomas is clutch - good telepathy with Drew
He has real football smarts

Ginn has shown spurts but he's not as sure handed as Cooks was

Snead is mia after a great season last year

Brandon Coleman gets one in the seam occasionally but is a hell of a down field blocker. (He threw multiple hussle blocks on the big Ingram run against Carolina)

Tight ends? What tight ends?
Don't need Jimmy just somebody competant

Drew needs a new upgrade to a piece or two to give him more options.

But he has always went far with less
And made the receivers around him better

Cooks caught 68% of the passes Brees threw to him. That's good.
Ginn's caught 77% of the passes thrown to him this season. That's crazy good.

Thanks. I was about to pull those numbers up myself when I read that.

Re: Drew Brees is staring down his last best shot

Brees arm doesn't look any different to me. Brees will make a bad throw and people will be like "oh my he's aging" . I've seen him make those same bad throws when he was younger though. Brees has always been an incredibly accurate guy, but I've seen him let a few get away from him.. especially when he tries to force it.

Our improved defense and dominant run game probably gave him 2 or 3 more shots with this team.

He ain't dead yet!
