Re: Saints WR's and TE's versus Saints QB's

I guess i would say the qb is more impactful to the success of the receievers/tes than than the receivers/tes are to the success if the qb because the qb can still add value by throwing to the running backs, running the ball himself, or taking advantage of blown coverage where the receiver could be no more talented than you or me and still score if not covered at all. Conversely the receivers are almost totally dependent on the qb and without catchable passes from him, they can only add value on reverses and blocking. So I think the qb is a little more important. But that does not mean even prime 2009 drew brees could throw for 3,500 yards with our current receivers. Even if qb is the more important position, that means more about making due with devery henderson or emmanuel sanders, not the historically bad group we have now that would hobble any qb. Drew Brees could not make our receivers look good any more than Demaryius Thomas could make Tebow look like a good QB by being an excellent receiver.

That's obvious to me, as well.

I respectfully disagree. Brees could easily pass for 3500 yards with these WR's. They are not as bad as you somehow convey.
