That had absolutely no bearing on why Ginn had a horrible year.
I think brees still has enough left to play but I disagree. Ginn is a straight line deep ball guy, brees isn’t hitting that as well as he could before. He had to slow down so many times even on balls he caught.

Ehh Ginn was showing decline with his Hand strength even when Brees was out.

He had a drop that led to an Interception in the Cowboys game, and dropped a sure fire TD in the endzone in the Chicago game, and that was with Teddy at QB.

I just hope that Drew can get him the ball without constantly under throwing him. It’s probably part of the reason why Ginn had such a terrible yr
Ginn had a terrible year largely because his route running within 20 yards isn’t what it used to be. He’s still got straight line speed but he doesn’t have the acceleration needed to get in and out of his breaks to get open inside of 15-20 yards. I’d bet his current 40 time isn’t far off from when he came out, but I’d bet even more that his 3-cone and his 20-yd shuttle times are drastically diminished from what they were when he came out.

And his drops didn’t help.
But he runs better routes and catches better

Most above average wrs would have the ability to adjust and still make those catches. Ginn does not. Sanders definitely does. Should be a big jump in production out of that role even down the field.

I definitely think sanders will be better. I’m not saying he won’t. All I’m saying is ginn is kind of a one trick pony and that trick isn’t adding anything to this offense.

The real question is this... What jersey # will Sanders wear with the Saints?

He has worn 3 as a pro... #10, #17, and #88.

All of those numbers currently belong to other players... TQS, Emmanuel Butler, and Mitchell Loewen respectively.
I’d have to think it wouldn’t take much to get the number away from Butler or Loewen... and maybe TQS would give up #10 just to try and get a fresh start on his last chance to stick with the Saints.

Brees does so much with what he got. He has to take two hops to gather himself enough to hit that throw. Other QBs can just flick their wrist and it goes further...

Doesn't matter in the end if Ginn isn't able to freaking catch the damn thing.
I don’t know why anyone agues this. Brees threw a few nice deep balls last year but there were several that weren’t where they needed to be.

I’m not saving up gifs to prove my point. Lol

This was a great move. It seemed like they did it in response to their game with the 49ers. If they didn't have Sanders on the 49ers the saints surely would have won. That huge lucky bomb play they had and the other one Sanders threw I believe. Without that threat AND that threat added to the saints I think they have the edge now. It's just like the cowboys stealing Charles Haley from the 49ers. They will win this next matchup against the 49ers
