I'm not one to nitpick, but when talking about footwork, it seems as if every game Drew Brees is having to throw a jump pass. He literally leaves his feet in order to heave the ball over the outstretched arms of the line, given his short stature.
I'm not selling Brees short on his abilities as a passer, not at all, but I don't think you can put Cam and Brees in the same conversation about how they play from within the pocket. The physical differences are too great.
Yep, that's the way Brees makes up for his lack of height. He literally can not see over most NFL players, definitely not over lineman. Which is why it will be so darn important that the defense plays disciplined football and stays in their gaps and gets off blocks. Before the MNF they showed clips of Wilson & Brees with their throwing motions. Wilson gets on his tip toes. Brees jumps/hops.
