It came down to that horrible interception in the playoffs vs the Vikings where he was trying to keep the momentum we'd had with Taysom Hill trucking the Vikings...

Not using Latavius Murray more, pulling Taysom out when he was in BeastMode, Drew didn't make those calls...
That interception that Brees threw I will always think he was trying to match Hill's deep throw to show he still has it. Hill had 1 on 1 coverage on his throw while Brees threw into double coverage. That was a boneheaded throw for a seasoned qb. trying to create something that wasn't there. Totally agree on using Murray and pulling Hill, that's on Payton.

I'd like to think that was Brees testing himself, but he does it every year. Always seems to happen in the playoffs too, throws a dumb ill-advised pass.

He did it quite a few times the past season, he was just lucky that most of them were dropped by the DB's.

Not only that he had the best completion % and TD% of his entire career.

I know it was a short season for him and those stats donít tell the whole story but itís pretty impressive none the less.

The writing is on the wall. Everyone knows how this is going to end come playoff time.
My belief is that when Brees exits left, the play calling will change & possibly a lot more balance.

Trade up for a receiver in the draft if necessary.

Not crazy about how much we are going to end up paying Brees and how much it'll cost against the cap, but if they are serious about this thing, then they need to make a serious point to address the weaknesses that have stopped our playoff run 3 years in a row.
I would rather throw money at Everson Griffin than trade for Slay

Re: Drew Is Coming Back For The 2020 Season

Not sure if anyone has thought about this but I assume that the majority of people happy that Brees is returning are older Saints fans and the majority of fans wanting a different QB are from the younger generation.

Those of us that endured watching a losing team season after season and seeing people in the stands with bags on their heads at games know how special Brees is to this team. (Don't get me started on any QB with Billy Joe for a name).
Think of how Bengals and Browns fans feel. They're miserable and desparate just for a winning season. I don't miss that feeling.

I don't do too many "back in my day" rants because they make me feel old but I'm guessing that this is primarily an old-timers vs. young-uns debate.

Well here's the thing.

The older you get, the more you experience, and the more you know.
You dont get dumber with age.

I know YOU know this, Ice Ice Baby, but many young'uns dont.
In the immortal words of Jim Mora, "You dont know. You THINK You know.
But you dont. Know."

QB is 70% mind. 20% arm. 10% legs. If you're doing it right.

Drew Brees is the greatest QB we've ever had. His age means nothing, and if anything he's smarter.

and Furthermore, DREW !
