Drew Brees has to be dictated to by our pass rush, otherwise he is going to pick us apart. That's what he does.
The bad thing about Drew Brees and other 'elite' QBs like Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers is that they know that the pass rush is coming, so they call quick plays that gets the ball out of his hands in 2 seconds or less.
Our guys last week were still pressuring the QB like they always do, but the difference was that Brees was getting rid of the ball.
We need a good adjustment against accurate efficient qbs other than just rushing the front 4. We have to do more blitzing and switch different coverage schemes more often.
The secondary got picked apart Sunday night. They guys are not bad as a unit, and are about an average NFL squad, but their lack of extraordinary playmaking ability, and bland defensive coaching is why we got burnt.
I expect a few tweaks in the gameplan next time we play them.
