Brees has definitely lost a step but with another star receiver and he wil be fine for another couple years. He has carried the team for so long with average receivers. Hes made them look much better and helped them overachieve. His accuracy was deadly. His accuracy is starting to go and he is going to need a receiver with the ability to go out and get those off target throws. He is still an all pro and the best option available for the next couple years.
Although cousins may be a good option. Keenum is going to get paid by someone this offseason

With a pass rush, Drew will be fine.

Re: Is The Curse back?

Without the defensive timeout by Payton, this play never happened. We had pressure on them and took our boot off their throats enough for them to gasp for air.

Lots of "what-if's" in this game for sure that could have made a difference, but Sean pulled the same **** a couple weeks back with Tampa Bay. He put his foot on the brake.

I was on the 48-yard line, 10th row, and watched Marshawn Lynch destroy our whole team in one run from scrimmage. It takes more than one tackle to make a difference.

And the "we're young, we're hurt" excuse I say, 10 SECONDS was all that separated us from the NFC Championship.

CURSED

Nope! Katrina washed that curse away. We are just damn unlucky most of the time.

The only curse is Roger Godhell.

This was one of our top 5 seasons, are you kidding me? If this is a curse I wish we had been cursed back in the 70s.

If you weren't around for the two losses to the Falcons in '78, you didn't experience the worst of the Curse.
