quote:1 ring is fantastic. But you're right, we should have contended for more and hopefully added another or 2 with Brees at the helm.
Super Bowl rings: 1
What a fricking shame. We've wasted such a great talent.
quote:Ahhh, the old adage where only the bad games are the ones that matter.
Here's some. In weeks 10 and 11, when just one win would have put us in the driver's seat for a playoff spot.
1 offensive TD in two weeks....
Brees sure did pad his stats in meaningless games this year but at the end of the day we had a good enough defense to sniff the playoffs and we didn't. Brees gets one more chance in 2017 and if we don't make the playoffs he's going to be Brett Favre on the Jets throwing 29 INT's
quote:I wonder where that pic would rank Brees if you did it as a % of passes since he led the league in pass attempts. And #2 in pass attempts is Flacco, also #2 in the pic.
Drew Brees would have so many more passing yards if he took more shots down the field.
Passes for 4 yards or fewer:
quote:Yes, stats are meaningless when you have a shite defense, I agree.
My point is that stats are meaningless when you don't win.
<--still bitter about three consecutive 7-9 seasons.
quote:ARchie Manning doesn't belong in the same sentence as Brees, so I'm not sure what your point is. Brees was infinitely better as a QB and also had infinitely more team success than Archie.
Nobody remembers all of the stats Archie Manning used to pile up back in the day, he regularly led the NFC in passing yards and was a Pro Bowl quarterback in an era where the quarterback had a target painted on his chest.
quote:No one is celebrating 8-8, or our actual record of 7-9 in this thread, so again, I'm not sure what you're talking about.
But everyone remembers how god-awful the Saints were in those days. Like Cleveland Browns, celebrating that we went 8-8 kind of awful.

And having the same number of interceptions as "peypick" manning is not a positive
Week 2 he put up an absolute dud.
You're utterly clueless if you think putting up 13 points and less than 300 yards of total offense is "on point" for Drew Brees and the Saints.
Turning in one of the worst offensive performances of the season doesn't classify as "on point"
The Raiders had a much worse defense than the Saints and they still won a lot of games.
You actually said Drew Brees bailed the defense out in San diego.
