No touchdowns and five interceptions. Who was that guy out there against the Atlanta Falcons?
QB Drew Bress put up a real stinker, but it's just one game, and every great QB has a bad day now and then. Saints head coach Joe Vitt says Drew Brees is the least of his worries.
“I think Drew is well-prepared,” Vitt said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
“He has prepared the last couple of weeks the same way he has prepared since I’ve known him in ’06. Again, sometimes you go on a little bit of a cool streak and you get balls tipped, you’ve got the ball potentially on the wrong shoulder of a receiver and something catastrophic happens. Nah, this is a great quarterback with great intent. His best days are ahead of him."
Brees is doing what he always does, and compared to other seasons, his stats tell the true story. He's on pace for 4,899 passing yards and 41 touchdowns in 2012. Chalk Thursday night up to just a bad night, nothing less, nothing more. Bad for everybody, not just Brees.
"Listen, it was a bad night for our football team, not just Drew Brees,” Vitt said.
