Someone dropped off from Smith to cover Kamara. That was the bust.

Then...

Drew threw the ball perfectly

And then...

Smith caught in stride and he ran really, really fast.

When we put Alvin Kamara in motion it froze the corner, which left that side of the field empty. Drew said the completion was almost too easy.

Just about this. Norman was supposed to be covering the deep third. He had success earlier nailing Kamara out in the flat. So when he saw Kamara motion out on that side, he gambled that Brees was going to Kamara. BTW that's the play design according to an explanation by David Carr explaining the play on NFL Network. Brees sold the idea with the shoulder shake.

But Norman totally abdicated his responsibility on that gamble. Kamara was someone else's problem on that play. But he got burnt to a crisp playing cowboy with the coverage.

Carr noted the brilliance of Brees on the play was the fact that Tre'Quan Smith is never supposed to be open on the play. He's literally the 4th read. But Brees processed Norman's tendency, baited him, and made the throw to the guy that was never supposed to get ball.

I know this sounds crazy, and I don't want to take away from Drew's phenomenal record. I just can't shake it and I'm seeing more and more plays that seem "funny", like something just isn't right.

Even in the Panthers game the other day. On the final drive, Christian McCaffrey made a "first down" that was a yard short, and there was no measurement or second look. Then the TV coverage quickly cut off. I've looked for that play again on youtube and can't find it.

I want to be wrong about this.

This one always bugged me.

No doubt there are some strange occurrences out there. I still can't believe Williams wiffing on that tackle last year and taking out the only other player who could have chased down the receiver.
