The Whole Thread Critical Of Brees By A Saints Fan!

Lol, I should do this for one of my favorite players, nice idea. The last one is probably Brees' biggest weakness, but he isn't horrible about the INTs. It seems he has his worst years regarding INTs in years when the Saints D is bad, he probably feels like he'll probably need to make more risky throws for their offense to score enough to win in those years, and maybe doesn't play as disciplined as he normally would.

I love Drew Brees but I do have one complaint. He is at his deadliest when he doesn't lock in on a target, and spreads the ball around, especially hitting the open man. He had a tendency to focus on Jimmy Graham, to the detriment of the team, oft times throwing into double and triple coverage, when there was an open receiver underneath for decent yardage.

Hopefully, he will now look to hit the open receiver now.

The fixation with Graham might have been related to that being his safety outlet and with the bad play at Oline forcing him to get rid of the ball fast with instant pressure in his face, throwing a high ball to Graham was usually either a caught jump ball or incompletion. Just a theiry, but it seemed like a direct correlation between his OLine play declining and his fixation on Graham increasing

Or could have been Brees trying to send Graham up the middle to get killed. Especially vs D`s we knew would try and take grahams head off.

Besides the dumps offs to the RBs (payton's staleness) he has locked in on Graham too much the last couple seasons. The old great Breesus surveyed the field and hit all open WRS. That was the great Breesus. This one is an imitation of the great one. He is still good but he'll never be what he once was!

You know, I was starting to give you the benefit of the doubt that you were indeed changing your ways. Was going to be one of your supporters if this issue came up. But it is obvious that JB is right in his assessment of you. Lesson learned.

I think your onto something here, as to why the Saints seemingly suffer very little with the loss of receivers(and TEs), and as to why some QBs actually may play BETTER without their top receivers. Brady seemed better, or at least just as good after Moss left in 2010.

Brady and Brees are similar in the regard that they do well with spreading the ball around, and not locking on a target. They are probably the 2 best in the league at finding the favorable match up, and having the discipline to take it consistently. The offenses they are in do a good job of giving receivers favorable match ups, so it works well for them.

However, if they lock in on a target of a great receiver, they may take riskier throws, if they are willing to toss it into coverage more often, relying on their receivers to win a ball skills battle. Perhaps without having great number 1 receivers, some QBs are less tempted to do this, and look for the open receiver more often.
