Whoo-hoo! How great is it to have this guy? I was furious when they signed him because I wanted the Saints to end up with VY or Leinart. I've been happily eating spiced crow all season and will happily continue!
Tell me again, NFL pundits, how Michael Vick is the 3rd best QB in the NFL. It's Brees folks, and if he keeps this up, he'll keep closing in on Brady and Peyton. All he needs is a Super Bowl ring to pass them, IMHO. He rocks!
I like what they were talking about during the game, that although he will not beat you with his legs like Vick, he is mobile enough to avoid the rush. It's almost scary to watch him step up into the pocket instead of backpedaling 8 yards. I almost forgot what it was like to have a true QB.
His stats and his QB rating will never show how good he makes our offensive line look. I'm sorry to say that our line is bad at run blocking and they are bad at pass blocking. Thank god we have the best QB I have ever seen inside a pocket. Brees has the most incredible feel for the pressure around him, where it is coming from and how to make one step moves to avoid it.
NO int's with a very high completion % and he is throwing to very young, inexperienced guys...great game! Now if we could only get the running game going....I really think we need to look for a OT in the offseason who could play LT thus letting J Brown who is a VERY GOOD run blocker move back to the right side.
Overall, great game today. One we had to have to regain some momentum. 6-2 at the half way point...who would have ever thought?
