    Either the Texans O line sucks or New Orleans D line is the best

      They spent the first 9 or 10 minutes w/o saying a single word about Brees. Even when they mentioned that the Texans D was “picked apart,” it was “the Saints” and not “Brees.” I’m not trying to say that Deshaun Watson isn’t good, but before that last TD drive, he had less than 200 yards throwing the ball and had the same TD/int ratio as Drew Brees. Yet, Watson was getting all kinds of praise and Brees was only mentioned so that they could talk about his age. Come on, guys! It’s like you didn’t even watch the whole game. Was it just the Red Zone highlights or something?

        I love Brees but I've been saying for years that he doesn't throw the best deep ball. Receivers often have to slow down for the ball. He is still great and I wouldn't trade him for anyone but it is what it is.

            I think it’s funny that they spent about 90 percent of the video talking about how good the Texans were. And the 10 percent of it they talked about the Saints they criticized them? Saying things like, “Brees is too old, They play too much man to man defense, They need MORE pressure!” Is 6 sacks enough for you? Then when they talk about the massive 58 yard field goal to win the game they bring other random teams into the conversation that have nothing to do with how good Lutz was?

                        I didn't like this one.
                        Cant throw deep? He didn't even step.
                        Brees throws manipulated by Sean lol what does that even mean?
                        You're out of your' minds almost sounds like hater talk.
                        Lost arm strength? Not nearly to the point you are stressing .
                        And then talk about Brady like he ain't nothing .
                        Wtf you are not worried about them huh?
                        You guys will eat your' words I bet you counted us out when the Texans had that last score.

                              6:57 Brees has *always* had a week arm. It's a shock when he hits a receiver in stride.

                                  Said it before and I’ll say it again the media (not to mention the refs) are NOT a Saints fan.

                                    Parker Gabriel, it sure looks like it. Even in this past Sunday's game against the Rams, a Saints player picked up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown after the obvious turnover by the Texan's quarterback. But it was brought back after the officials conferred with each other .

                                      If you look at the play close you can see that drew didn't step in to the throw he just kinda lobbed it up , drew can still throw the ball deep , he also under threw AK witch would have been a TD but this passing game is almost like a running game it wears defenses down late in the game, drew has never had a are like Watson but its good enough to be a first ballot hall of Famer lol 🤷🏻‍♂️

                                          Does anybody even pay attention, do their research or even listen for the little birdy to chirp reality in their deaf ears. Deaf (stupid) and blind.

                                              More pressure on the quarterback?? What do you call 6 sacks and 10 hits????

                                                could been worse than 6 sacks, Watson is good at evading and it doesnt hurt to have one of the best WRs in the game in Hopkins either which is where the ball went when he was pressured.

                                                      Just because you under throw a ball, doesn't necessarily mean you're losing arm strength...just sayin.

                                                        The referees got lucky their blown call didn't cost the Saints the game.... it would've been a zebra bloodbath

                                                          They literally also contradict themselves talking as if the Texans won cause of the defense and all this but the Saints won mainly cause of Brees......

He had a slightly under thrown pass to Ginn. He’s not the first to under throw a ball and certainly won’t be the last. You’d think that the Saints lost the game watching this and many other Saints and Texans game coverage.
                                                                            Let’s just simplify this game for a second. The Saints offense was awful in the first half and Brees could not get in any rhythm in the first half, it that’s the scary thing about this team. They are so explosive that they can drop 30 in a half right before our eyes. As soon as they started getting Kamara rolling, it should have been game over but that secondary is so pathetic. Let’s not forget how they let Fitzpatrick have a career day on them last year on opening day.

                                                                            • Tim Michael

I don't even know how many 3rd downs they gave up. You are right though. I have seen coverage all day and you would literally think Deshaun Watson won this game for the Texans.

Apparently, Aaron Rodgers is the most talented qb ever bc he can throw bombs but watching Thursday night when he throws check downs he repeatedly threw it at the receivers feet and put up a whole 3 points.

We all know Brees arm has declined and I love how much Simms got off on hearing Mike say it. However all those throws are manipulated by Brees man. He knows his strength has declined so he plays smarter that is Brees changing calls at the LoS and using his eyes to manipulate the safeties, not SP. This dude hates everything Saints and its hilarious.

These guys. 3rd and 2, in other words you need 2 yards for a first down, Drew Brees completes a 44 yard pass for a first down and the complaint is the pass wasn't perfect. LMAOOOOO! I don't know what more Drew Brees has to do to get the credit he deserves. Dude throws for +74% completion, 370 yards, 2 TDs and leads them on a game-winning drive in under 37 seconds. If Drew Brees walked on water, these guys would be telling you "Drew Brees can't swim". LOL

"Picked em apart with 5 and 6 yards passing all night" ... 32 completions for 370 yards averages 11.5 ypa. 4 20+ yard completions, 2 40+ yard completions. Chris is such a douche.

                                                                                      Dickhead wants to talk about Brees hitting people in stride. If Watson hit a couple over the top they're gone. That catch by Hopkins over Apple is a prime example of that.
