I was surprised Oakland didn’t focus on Kamara more. I would have made Brees throw to the WRs more. They ultimately did a good job so it worked but without Thomas, this Saints offense looks beatable, as they were last night.Brees hasn’t been the same since mid 2018. He’s like Peyton where you still want him calling the shots (and he’s still better than 2015 Peyton) but he’s not the same guy.
I thought that as the case last year. Pinpoint accuracy covers up a lot of other weaknesses.One thing this game made me think (in combination with last week).... Drew Brees is moderately washed at a minimum. He has no arm strength left at all.
They won't bench him, but they might honestly be a more dangerous team with Jameis.
Yeah it started late in 2018, he was awful their last 4 games and really hasn't looked the same since.I thought that as the case last year. Pinpoint accuracy covers up a lot of other weaknesses.
Yes. And Brees was SO bad in the playoff game to finish the 2018 season that the Saints claimed was stolen from them because of the non PI call. If Brees didn't suck, he would have driven his team down in OT. Instead he flung a duck that was picked off.Yeah it started late in 2018, he was awful their last 4 games and really hasn't looked the same since.
Of course, Peyton in 2012-2014 (before falling off a cliff in 2015) put up awesome stats, but I never thought he looked the same after his surgery - far less zip on the ball, but still excellent accuracy and decision making.
Very true. Its just baffling sometimes what they choose to penalize, and what they choose to ignoreIt’s not like the league has ever had a sense of humor about minor deviations from league rules concerning on-field attire — remember Jim McMahon’s Adidas headband, or Terrell Owens pulling a Sharpie out of his sock? It would be odd if the league was less rigorous about enforcing its COVID safety rules.
