We have to find a way to use Tayson/Teddy to throw those deep passes to Ginn or whomever. Brees at 40 doesn't have the deep threat ball anymore and defenses know this reason Philly stacked 8 in the box most of the time yesterday. No knock on Drew but father time never gets beat.

You take bad with the good. Drew is probably the only person on this team that always gets a pass. That's how good he is and that's how much he means to this team.

Did you really think about this post prior to sending?

Just imagine for a moment....as you state using Teddy for the long throws.....do you think for 1 second if Teddy randomly came in the D just might have an idea something is up?

My only knock against DB yesterday is he didn't run the ball when the field was open in front of him. Yes, we know he doesn't run the ball but he could have picked up a few more first downs yesterday with his legs.

How come there’s no talk of lattimore’s first interception being because Foles is old and lost some arm strength? That was under thrown.

Yet another pretty stupid statement. As soon as he runs he’s a runner not a QB. Want the DL to be taking numerous free shots on him? Philly with Foles at QB, along with a 3 week rest and the excitement of a dome playoff game (Brees traditionally starts a bit off in these situations) made for a tough game. Philly only had 9 wins because they played Wentz. Play Foles all year and the would’ve won the division. There is nothing wrong with their talent or coaching.

First throw was pure rust. He hesitated. If he throws immediately, it’s a TD.

The throw to Hill was just a beautiful play by the DB.

I’ll take Drew 10/10
Hesitated indeed, due to a stiff pass rush in his face up the middle. That's always been the key to stopping us, pushing the middle of the pocket.

The o-line played better as the game went on. The refs went back to early-season mode on several calls, but hey, gotta keep those TVs in the Northeast turned on. Gotta keep the NFL Shop open :unsure:

Because if you’ve noticed on this board, the Saints are the only players who are professionals and highly paid with good coaches. The bad pass was Drew’s fault. The interception, because every other team is full of hacks is something Lattimore should have done anyway.

The throw to Taysom was in the air for 50 yards, he just didn't throw it soon enough. Settle down.

I'm starting to think a lot of fellow Saints fans are mentally challenged.
THIS X 100. Combine this post with the one about people saying Taysom or Teddy should replace Brees on plays where we need a big throw downfield is absurd. Taysom made a great throw to Kamara, but regardless of the complaints about the holding call on that play, it was a hold. Taysom didn't have to move from the spot he took the snap to make the throw. One pass from a single position does not make you a HOF QB. It was a great pass...it stinks their was holding, but if it wasn't a hold, he probably wouldn't have been able to make that throw.

well... considering he drove the field and passed for a TD after missing the throw to Hill... he didn't really cost us 2, we still got it and killed even more of the time off the clock that the Eagles could have used to try to come back with.

The first throw He didn't throw it quite far enough, the question is can he or did he misjudge how far he needed to throw for Ginn. I'd imagine with Ginn being out as long as he was, he misjudged.
.
There's a lot of discussion about him not being able to throw the deep ball, but that's 50 yards. Of course he can throw it that far. I'd suggest it's far more likely he missed the throw than that he can't get it that far. 65 is a different number, but 50 he misjudged.

It's very hard to hit and judge a moving target from 10 yards. 50 is even harder.

First Int. the DB made a great play, but Ginn has to also help his QB and not let the DB finish the Int.. Even after the Int., Ginn just stood there and made no effort to down the DB.

For all the idiots with the negative posts in this thread this is not about replacing or knocking Brees but about finding a way to implement one of the other QBs to do the long passes. Brees has been underthrowing receivers the last few years not just this year just facts.

Ok, time to revisit this. There are 2 ways to throw the long ball. One is you chuck it as hard as you can and let the WR run to the ball. The othersto place it just so, so that the WR sprints down, getting the CB to pay more attention to his speed than ball placement, then under throwing it slightly so the WR makes the last min adjustment knowing the ball will be slightly behind him. The first, and the one that everyone wants to see because it’s a big arm throw, is completed less and intercepted more. By slightly underthrowing it, it takes the CB who is running full speed to make a reaction at full speed to cover. This is how Brees has always thrown the long ball to anyone not named Henderson. And that’s because no one could run as fast as Henderson. So what people continually rag on Brees about is simply one style of throwing a deep ball.
