Drew toys are not just his receivers but his offensive line too. While we are on the cheap at guard at the moment through most of his time its been big money spent.

We need to be making the most of the WR deals we currently have though. If Snead keeps putting up his numbers he will get a big deal (and deserve it)

Lots of hope. Some of these kids don't suck, and the time they're getting is valuable. Look it's not a perfect world. Gotta make some lemonade here people.

what's not based in reality? I just gave you the actual math of the situation.

they will be 1-3 as easy as pie..

i've never made pie.probably not easy for me..but you get what I mean.

and I'd rather have Atlanta beat Panthers anyway.

Drew Brees 17
Peyton Manning 17
Dan Marino 15
Carson Palmer 8
Philip Rivers 8
Ben Roethlisberger 8
Dan Fouts 7
Joe Montana 7
Warren Moon 7
Eli Manning 7
Matthew Stafford 7
Tom Brady 7

As far as time of possession goes, we won the time of possession last night. We killed the Giants at time of possession, and the Raiders beat us at time of possession by less than a minute. For the season, we're up in time of possession by over 9 minutes. TOP is not an issue with this team.

Where "Drew and his toys" are concerned, did you see the stat they put up during the game last night? No quarterback has achieved what Drew has done in any ten year span in the history of the NFL and really, nobody was even close. In his entire time with the Saints, Drew has never had a pro-bowl wide receiver. And how much are we paying for his "toys"? Cooks, Snead and Thomas's salary's are just a little north of $2million a year COMBINED. Throw in Fleener's salary and the team is still paying less than $4 million a year. The Saints have $7 million available in cap space so it's not like "Drew and his toys" are keeping the Saints from picking up a stud free agent, if there were any available.

And finally, yes, the Falcons are known for their offensive prowess. They came into this game leading the league. And they've been very good for years now. As a matter of fact, the Falcons haven't had a below average offense since 2007 when Bobby Petrino bailed out on them mid season.
400 total yards, Utah. Not passing yards. When you throw it that much, you will have yards. It's all about efficiency.

And I don't if we "won" time of possession. If you are throwing the ball 50 plus times you are extending the game, and you are usually losing. We were having success running the ball. I'm not saying to reverse things and run it 50 times, but try to make it a little more even. With as bad as this defense is right now (whether or not you want to blame that on injuries) you have to take advantage of every possession to not only score, but run as much time off that clock as possible.

Payton failed in his game plan from that perspective. You'd think I were blaming this whole mess on drew by reading your comments. I didn't say one thing about his ability not being there. I said he's TOO GOOD for us to be running this predictable offense. And yes, I saw the stats on Drew over the last decade. We're talking about recent history with this team, not Drew's career accomplishments. Plus you gave me a bunch of QB's who played a long time ago in a different era.

And I disagree about the Falcons. That offense has been known for Julio Jones and Roddy White. It has never been an elite offense. You are telling what they are ranked after 4 whole games. They have a defensive minded head coach and a coordinator who hasn't previously shown to be all that great. Yet they looked a million times more creative than the Saints last night. And that, again, is a bit of an embarrassment.

As far as the cost of Drew and his "toys", he's making around 25 million a year alone, by himself. But the cost isn't simply dollars. They spent a first round pick on Cooks and Ingram, a second round choice on Thomas, plus the over pay for Fleener. They spent good money on Spiller, only to cut him a year later. There has been a significant investment in offense. And at some point they'll have to pay Cooks and Snead if they keep performing. But they haven't done enough to fix the offensive line and the play calling is not taking full advantage of what we have.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Well, if you're saying your "frustrated" or "embarrassed" by this offense, then I still say your expectations are too high, but I guess that's just my opinion.

If your saying you think the Saints should run the ball more, then I agree with you. I love nothing more than to watch the offense physically impose their will on the other team by running the ball down their throats, play after play. But with the defense this team has fielded over the two and a half years, unfortunately, the games have dictated our offensive options rather than the other way around. The team seems like it always has to score points in bunches just to stay in the games.

They only needed 17 points last week and couldn't do it. And I know that when you DO give up a lot of points you have to play keep up. But you still have to have some kind of balance. It's not like they were behind three touchdowns all night. They didn't fall significantly behind until the pick 6. They could have controlled the ball more, but instead kept passing, and going with those telegraphed short passes.

Embarrassing is being outplayed by the Falcons. That was the only part where I said embarrassing. If you don't agree with that, then I might say your expectations are too low. I've been accused of not having high enough expectations, so I guess there's no winning around here. But that's ok, I didn't come here to win brownie points. I've got my opinions, and that's the way it is.

I have a right to be frustrated with a lot of things as a fan. Whether anyone agrees doesn't really change anything, but I stand firmly behind my statements.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
