Drew Brees Is Not An Elite Qb?

72 posts in this topic

For the past 3 seasons I would watch Brees throw the ball and be like damn it's like he knew exactly what the defensive play was, or one of the taints running backs would just run right at a hole before it even opened up. So my question is.. Did the Saints Offense know what the Defensive play was before the snap?


I find it hard to believe that the Saints, who were already cheating, would have the ability to eavesdrop on opponents and not use it.

Thoughts?

Brees is a very smart QB, playing for a very smart offensive coach, in a system that is perfect for his skill set.

Similar situation to Brady.

He's a damn good QB, there's no arguing it.

However, I think that receiving corps doesn't get enough credit. Those fuggers never drop anything. Every Saints game I watch, they make a handful of ridiculous catches.

I'm not saying Drew Brees is bad but I honestly think this helped him in tough home games.

As far as listening I years ago....people are looking into it too narrowly. It was about gaining an edge if true....not systematic cheating.

For example, late in a game and a Saint opponent is down by 4. Opposing team calls a timeout to discuss the key play. Then the Saints call a timeout as the opponent takes the field to rethink there D. That is a good 5 minutes of thoughts and ideas he could listen to I regards to a key play.....and none of that would involve interpreting calls signals. The listening in for games could be about taking advantage of rare moments more than anything.
