You can see through the charts here https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/charts/...rees/BRE229498 that Drew really struggled this year to get the ball down the field. I wish they broke it down to passes of 15+ yards, because if you look at the game charts you can see once he hits the 15+ yard mark it goes to ****.

In the 2019 total chart it's easy to see the deficiency, and although it shows some success throwing to the right and deep, he only had a few passes thrown that way all year (numbers are skewed).
What the chart shows is passer rating compared to the rest of the league. Not arm strength or ability.

What it shows:
  • Drew's passer rating from 10-20 yards between 124-140 and the league average in that same area 78-91.
  • It shows that beyond 20 yards on the right side of the field he has a 140 passer rating with a league average of 78
It does not show which receiver is dropping passes in what zone...


Considering your interpretation of that chart. Please tell me your thoughts on Teddy Bridgewater?

Considering your interpretation of the chart. Please tell me what you see from all the QBs in the league compared to Drew? With a few exceptions all QBs have a lane preference after 40 yards.

Play around that site and you will find more. Like 4 of the 7 fastest sacks in Wild Card Weekend were Minnesota sacking Drew because of our craptastic o-line play.. What option isn't in the glorious "why we lost poll" because we got our ass beat in the trenches and it isn't there because a large majority of fans do not understand more than one position if they truly understand any.
https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/stats/t...-sacks/2019/18

This one shows that Teddy's longest Completion and Drew's longest completion are only 2.5 yards appart

You will also find that Drew has the second fastest time to throw.. Even though a lot of people say he holds on to the ball too long.
https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/stats/p...-time-to-throw

On Wild Card Weekend Drew had the fastest TT and if I recall had 10 pressures, 4-5 hits, 3 sacks..

I do not go rummaging through stats to prove my idea, I go through everything I can find and see what the story tells me.

I don't think Taysom has proved enough as a QB but I really HOPE someone doesn't offer him 15 million and force our hand. Luckily he is restricted.

Re: I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......

[QUOTE=OldMaid;877246...It has been really exciting.
The 10 years,overall, of SP and his staff .
Good times . Unbelievable times no one ever thought would for all the awful. When it was awful, we still thought was good. People made their own fun.
Saints won a game. One game in 1980 or 1981. Hey, at least they won a game. We were happy.
The 8-8, 9-7 years , ahhhh,that was it.
You know the rest.
[/QUOTE]Amen S. These young-uns dont remember Dave Wilson. Or the Billy Joes, or Ken Stabler who should have retired after Houston.

My question to the board is this:

How many incumbent QB's playing right now for other teams would you rather have than Brees? How many, and name them?

Lets see who you think, among active NFL QB's is better than Drew.

I'll bet the number is less than 4.

Dont give me all that salary cap blah blah --- I'm not interested, and have never been interested in the money talk. Im into Football, not Accounting.

As a football player, a Quarterback, I think 28 teams wish they had Drew Brees.

Preachin' to this choir, Mike. As Brees stands right now he is still the best QB we have ever had in our history and one of the greatest to have ever played the game.

Fan's have a bad habit of turning something that isn't a strength into a weakness and ignoring the real strengths.

"arm strength" is often cited as an issue.. Well lets bring in JaMarcus Russelland see how people like the trade to arm strength away from decision making.

"tries to force plays".. Alex Smith is good at forcing absolutely nothing. Lets bring him in.

For years fans wanted Drew gone because of interceptions, now they have found something different.. Most fans forget or never knew what it was like to wait for Drew Brees to come to the Saints.
