Should New Orleans Saints Fans Be Concerned About Drew Brees’ Rusty Play?
Early on in training camp, there were reports that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was looking a bit rusty at times. There were times where he under-threw passes to receivers, threw some picks and just otherwise seemed to be off.
Should Saints fan have cause to worry? I say no. Everything will be fine and things will work themselves out.
Brees has a body of work that speaks for itself. He’s been a passing leader in the NFL for several years now and has had three seasons where he threw for 5,000 or more yards, not to mention a Super Bowl ring to show for his efforts.
Right now, there are 31 other teams going through the exact same thing the Saints are. Every team, every offense and every quarterback is currently getting warmed up for the upcoming season. Everybody is working out the kinks, so to speak. An under-thrown ball here or an interception there should not cause fans and observers to devolve into full-on panic mode just yet.
There is still another week of training camp before the first preseason game on August 9, and the regular-season opener against the Atlanta Falcons will still be another month away following the preseason opener. With relative stability on the offensive side of the ball, I have confidence that Brees and company will come out strong, aggressive and with a chip on their shoulders.
Let’s just take things day by day and see where the Saints are. Our first real look at the team in a game like situation will come this Friday at the preseason opener, so let’s wait until then, see what the team has and go from there.
