Drew Brees Has New Orleans Saints Playing Better Football Than Any Other Team
The New Orleans Saints are obviously drawing some attention with their 4-0 start. The Saints are playing so well right now that within two weeks, they should be 6-0. That’s because Drew Brees has his team playing well enough to win the Saints’ next two extremely challenging games at the Chicago Bears and at the New England Patriots.
Yes, he’s going to beat Tom Brady in New England. Brees is playing too well to be stopped right now.
Coming into the season, most NFL observers would have thought the Saints had no chance of success in Weeks 5 and 6, but Brees is leading the team to excellent performances right now.
At age 34, Brees continues to show that he’s among the best quarterbacks in the NFL and continues to play under the shadow of other quarterbacks like Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Brady and Aaron Rodgers, just to name a few. With 13 years under his belt, he keeps getting better.
There had been reason to be somewhat concerned about Brees’ start in 2013 considering he was sacked 10 times in his first three games and had four interceptions compared to six TD passes. Those figures don’t reflect the way he’s performed in recent seasons.
However, with a string of five straight Pro Bowl appearances and with statistics that would have put him near or at the top of quarterback charts in past seasons, Brees is ready now to take the Saints up a few more notches and back to Super Bowl contention. His flawless performance against the previously undefeated Miami Dolphins on Monday night is another example of how far Brees can take New Orleans this season.
The Saints are 4-0 right now — expect that to be 6-0 prior to their bye in mid-October.
