Countdown Daily Recap: Saints-Dolphins

<!-- template inline -->MIAMI -- The New Orleans Saints should be 5-1 now.

They should be back at their team headquarters in Metairie, La., munching on antidepressants, wondering how the NFL's highest-rated quarterback and highest-scoring offense could lay a carton of eggs like the one they deposited Sunday at Land Shark Stadium.

Drew Brees? You mean the guy who entered the game against the Miami Dolphins as the league's No. 1 passer? Sorry, never saw him in the first half.


Instead, I saw a stiff who threw two interceptions, was sacked three times and looked like he couldn't win a backup QB job behind JaMarcus Russell. In fact, the whole Saints offense should have been doused with Lysol after the first two quarters.

"Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong," Brees said. "The turnovers. Whatever, the batted balls. The penalties. All those things that just gave us no chance."

And then &#8230;

Brees became Brees again.
