    Yeah first team ever to deploy a deep ball thrower cause our QB can’t throw beyond 15 yards.

    Normal package with Brees at QB, Taysom Hill package, and Winston to come in and throw the deep ball. Payton stays ahead of the curve.

    It’s going to hurt us later in the season when teams start scheming against the Saints to eliminate anything underneath, and balls thrown 15 yards across the field, because that’s all Brees has left at this point.

    He had that one deep throw to Cook down the sideline, but can he do it consistently?

    However I don’t think Payton would bench him. They might say he’s “injured” or something so they can play Winston.

    I want to see him struggle on deep throws with a clean pocket before I say he's done. The entire offense was just out of sync this week.

    I was happy to see Taysom a bit in the 4th quarter. One of my criticisms of the way we use him has been that we mix him in a few times in the first half, but then he disappears in the second.

    Shit. Also a concern he tries to come back too early and never lets it fully heal.

    Hope Sanders can step up. Feed AK41

    Saw somebody mention they should put him on IR just to make sure he doesn't try to come back early.

    With the 3 week IR this year, it can't be that bad if the Saints aren't putting him there yet. I hope he's back for the Packers game, he's tough as they come so I'm hoping they haven't put him on IR hoping he can be back for that game.

    I also have zero faith in Tre'Quan, could see Harris getting a few more snaps as well. Also, supposedly Brees loved Fowler in camp, not sure if he sees the field more also.

    And he's the only receiver that won't outrun a Brees 25 yard bomb

    That’s the other issue - Brees’ arm strength. It’s going to hurt us as the season progresses. You gotta have a QB who throw a deep ball.

    Thomas is the reason Brees career has been extended. It’s obvious he is the key to the O now. Brees missing him tonight

    I'm not pressing the panic button yet, we got smoked by the Falcons last year, but we have not looked good the first 2 weeks. I think the D will come around, and our OL will be fine. But Brees' arm strength seems like it has regressed even further. He's averaging less than 5 yards in the air per attempt!! That's laughably low.

    We’ve had some slow starts in the past and got on a nice roll as the season progresses. Secondary needs to learn how to defend. It was nice to see Sanders finally remember how to catch a ball
