  1. But do we really need him to be dominant? He doesn't have to be a bell cow, 1300 yard runner. We've got Kamara to split carries and we all know that we throw the ball more than 90% of the teams in the league. It was just a hypothetical. I don't imagine we do much of anything other than fill bottom roster spots until season's end and we get to talk with Drew.
  2. I just really, really like Mark Ingram.
  3. If the Saints beat the Ravens, Brees will become just the third quarterback in NFL history to beat all 32 teams. The only quarterbacks that have pulled off the feat are Brett Favre and Peyton Manning. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/drew-brees-trying-to-become-just-the-third-quarterback-in-nfl-history-to-beat-all-32-teams/

  5. Redskins just beat the Panthers. =)
  6. Ok, I was just kidding. Yet if you were Loomis and you could sign him to an extension, would you? What would you offer? Would you wait until season's end or maybe offer something in just 4 to 6 weeks from now? I think there are some good reasons to at least try to extend him unless we simply cannot know what we're doing cap wise until season is over and we know about Brees.
  7. Oh man. One of the building blocks of the game. Rest easy.
  8. When Brees is giving his quick speech Taysom Hill standing behind him looks more like a professional wrestler than a QB. =) Here's a few more nice videos. https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900036054/weve-all-seen-the-way-he-lives-his-life-taysom-hill-congratulates-drew-brees-on-breaking-nfl-career-passing-yards-record.html
  9. There are few passing records I would say are untouchable, if any. The rule changes have made it so that even a decent QB, think Matthew Stafford, could be in the running for the passing yards record. Certainly if Aaron Rodgers wasn't hurt all the time, he could challenge for it. It's incredibly early in his career, but the weapons around Patrick Mahomes right now and his ascent so far as a QB.... you get the picture. The NFL long ago turned the game into a passing league and thus the records are there for the taking. Brees holds the record for most consecutive games with a passing TD at 54. That's a stat that requires health and consistent greatness, but even then Brady made it to 52, Peyton Manning made it to 51 and Brees is also 5th on that list with 45. It takes a special set of circumstances for all these type of things to come together and certainly we have enjoyed that. As a once starving franchise and fan base, I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.
  10. Don't have time to look it up right now, but the funniest (most egregious) one was where two defensive players did it at the same time. Following the play they both mysteriously went down. There was replay after replay of it, announcers basically making fun of it saying that one guy is supposed to know to do so.

  12. I watched a little demonstration years ago with Rod Woodson and Ty Law. Law was still playing and Woodson was only retired a couple years at the time. They were demonstrating how they play corner, redirecting receivers, using the sideline, being on an island, etc. What I gathered from it was that both guys had some different techniques and some things / styles they exaggerated more than what the other guy did. Both were All Pro players. You don't mess with Dan Marino's throwing motion or how he passes the football. Period. Aaron Glenn was a Pro Bowler and played a lot of years in this league, but without being there to see what's going on, I have to question this. This isn't a golf swing, at least not in my mind. Why not build off of what he was already doing? IDK.
