That's why the Patriots won so many recent SB's, if Belichek saw a weakness, he didnt hesitate to replace the player / coach. Didnt matter who it was.

Ya'll need to rethink this when Brees leads the league again next year. Brees is not the problem! He is still one of the best and ya'll want to get rid of him? I'm glad that I don't work for ya'll!

Brees is one of the best that ever QB'd in the NFL, no doubt. But you gotta
protect him with players that can block. Also I still believe with Taysom on the
field you can confuse some of the better Defenses. Don't leave a 40yr old
QB back there like a sitting duck.

Re: Drew Brees isn't washed, so stop it

No one is saying Drew is washed up. I'm just saying neither he or Payton know how to win in the playoffs. After all they did defy all the predictions of them for the playoffs by loosing to a10-6 team at home. They should be playing this Sunday but...well you know disappointing once again.

Drew isn’t done.
He is still the most accurate qb and reads defenses to a T.
He can’t thro w 50 yards anymore unless someone has blown coverage.

Brees needs more options, a less cute Payton play calling and an o-line or game adjustments.

The Saints won with Teddy because everyone down to a man took on a huge sense of urgency, which dropped the minute they saw Drew was back to his old ways.

It did help that he was fresh at the end of the year.

The sky is not falling

Brees is the best QB when only throwing 20 yds or less... after that he is average to bad.

If the team plays better without Drew, like you said, why would they want to keep him?

Not having Drew forced Payton to re-evaluate the offense, which turned into a 5-0 run without Brees.

Soon as Brees came back, Payton went back to his old ways. Took the ball out of the North-South punishing runner and put it in Brees-Kamara's hands because he wanted the O to look flashy, instead of just being productive.

It always happens in playoff time, we can look like world beaters all regular season, but for Brees to come out and play like that, at home, in the playoffs is ridiculous. He wasnt helped by the play calling, I dont care for SP a lot of the time, having Murray sat on the bench whilst the Vikings blitzed every down was idiotic.

But back to Brees - his questionable decision making has ended 2 straight playoff trips.

2018 - obviously shouldn't have got to OT but we shouldn't have blown a 14 point lead to begin with.

3rd down and Dante Fowler is bearing down on him, Brees throws a wounded duck which gets picked at the Rams 40 yard line. Rams move 30 yards, kick a FG and win.

2019 - What was he thinking on that deep throw to Ginn? I wouldnt even trust Mike Thomas in that coverage, so why Ginn?
And on the go ahead drive, huge fumble which kills all of our momentum. The first time I've ever wanted them to keep Taysom in over Brees, Hill was the only reason we were still in that game. Brees got greedy and it backfired.
Pass for Brees! INCOMPLETE!!!!
