Precisely.

Re: Wide Reciever

I'd like to see Deonte' Harris more involved in the offense vs Niners and subsequent playoff run.

Sure as hell can't count on Ginn and Trequan Smith.

Re: Wide Reciever

He was putting it right in their hands. We are who we are at this point. I would not throw it anyone but MT, Kamara, Taysom and Cook which is more options than Green Bay has so I will take it. Our WR's suck. Can't have it all.

Re: Wide Reciever

Stop thinking fantasy stats and start thinking Super Bowl . Put AK in the slot and Murray in the back field which I think will be coming more often .

How will the Saints move the ball then without a capable receiver who can catch and get reasonable separation?? Cook, Ginn and Tre have yet to deliver consistently.

This offense has performed well, however it would be better served with a competent #2 opposite CGM. He'd have even more opportunities without bracket coverage.


It is what it is ... I'm just a arm chair GM but I surely hope the Saints front office/ scouts are targeting a WR in the 2020 draft and not un drafted guys who will need year(s) to develop.

When we get to the playoffs they will still be calling us for ticky tack penalties to keep the game alive for the big market teams.

Re: Wide Reciever

People want to say Brees aint declining, his decision making may not be, but his arm certainly is.

He not getting the ball out like he did 4-5 years ago to a WR/TE. He still got the accuracy, but he not throwing it 20-30 yards down field unless they really wide open because his arm strength is obviously diminished alot. This is where you start to see where you stand with your WR/TE/RB because in the past, Brees could make anyone look good. Now you better have good talent at those positions that will help your QB as much as he helps you.

I saw a 25 yard pass that fell into TE Cook's hands and dropped with a wide open field
Cook also dropped another easy touch pass inside the end zone.
Tedd Ginn Jr has dropped so many balls this year that I hope we cut him. Those balls have landed right in his hands.

Brees decline? Sure... maybe.... who would know if wide receivers don't catch balls. I've read this argument that Brees has been on the decline since 2012.

Re: Wide Reciever

I thought Brees would come un glued after that dropped pass (close to perfect) from Cook.

It was a rainbow. Maybe Jared lost it in the light? I don't know but we need his A game vs the Niners.

For years Brees has made average to good receivers look great. This year we're seeing the reverse, where bad receivers are making it look like Brees' age is starting to take its toll, when that isn't the case.

Seems like we are always missing a critical piece. For years there weren't many holes in the O, but the D looked like a sieve. We were setting records on both sides of the ball. Unfortunately, the defensive records were the type you don't want to own.

Once the D line came around we couldn't find a corner. Now that the D has plugged most of the holes, the O only has one reliable receiver. Thank God he's the best in the NFL.

As a Saints fan, this is totally frustrating. It has to be driving Brees crazy.
