“I think Austin’s had a great camp. he continues to get better each day. I’m really developing a lot of confidence in him,” Brees said. “There are a lot of little subtle things he does well. At the end of day for a receiver, there is a timing and then there is a feel to everything.”
I just don't see it. Has he been tearing it up in practice or something? I think there are several WRs with much more potential we should be keeping over Carr.

Carr has a little bit of speed burst but not much else in talent. He does not have a role. He's not a security blanket. He doesn't get targets. After Michael Thomas, the unit struggled last year and the fanbase is hungry for the receiving unit to upgrade personnel and impact.

When Carr arrived, the hype was that he could be the next Julian Edelman. The Saints don't really use the Edelman role in their passing offense.

Brees said what he said but was mostly answering questions about QB Challenge.

And then, you get John Sigler at USA Today as usual stirring the pot, taking a stock answer by Brees and pushing the Carr hype. Sigler knows that alot of the fanbase would rather a new guy.

I like the taller young receivers and I hope one of them makes it. I think Brees would utilize a taller receiver, who will get a favorable size matchup and could make a play closer to the line of scrimmage, than a speed receiver who has a route to develop.

I think Carr is your number one slot receiver. Kirkwood can’t get on the field and Meredith and Matthews are gone. I think he makes the squad and has a productive year.

Carr is a lock! 1st full season in this offense was last year. Perfect slot guy. Catches everything. Extremely smart. Plays special teams. And Brees wants him. Close the book. Carr is in.

If he blocks well in the run game, you may be right.

Another year of quibbling over mediocre wr's. The only pass catching weapon we added is a TE, Cook. Maybe the light will go on for TQS. Other than that, Butler has been rumored to be the up and comer, but I have not seen it in a game. And Lil'Jordan Humphrey has flashed in preseason games against backups but you don't hear any special praise in practices. Let's hope...again...Drew can make someone a star this year....
