Looks like those are the times Brees has thrown to those receivers.

What are those numbers? Surely not completions??? Attempts? Thrown too?

Yes. # of targets = passes thrown to that player



These numers don't quite match up to the ones above, but they are close.

Pulled mine from a FF site which I subscribe to, not sure where the discrepancy is from, but like you said, they are close. :shrug:

It's interesting stats, but I don't know where they got their full stats. Just off the top of my head, Marques Colston has 54 catches for 869 yards, not 56 for 886. Drew Brees has 331 pass attempts if I remember right, not 344, and Bush has 53 catches for 352 yards, not 54 for 358.

The only thing I can think of is maybe they don't discount plays that are not counted due to penalties. But then looking over some other teams real quick, their numbers don't all match up either. Such as Andre Johnson is listed with 57 catches when he has 68.

Jamal Jones has a catch and he was also the WR that Brees was attempting a deep ball to in the Eagles game that was intercepted, so Jones has to have at least 2.

Looking at Brees' stats after 10 weeks. Leading the NFL in passing yards and 8 for 40+ just 1 shy of his season personal best.

Plenty of crow to go around for all the pre season media experts that doubted Brees.
