Drew Brees’ Accuracy a Touch Off Against Browns

huangjian123
 Drew Brees is arguably the most accurate quarterback of all time. In fact Cheap Alvin Kamara Jersey , his career completion percentage of 67% ranks number one, ahead of Kurt Warner, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Steve Young, Tom Brady, Joe Montana, and Brett Favre among countless others. Brees has set the single season record for completion percentage three different times. In 2009, he set a new record with 70.6% of passes completed. In 2011, he set it again with 71.2% of passes completed. Sam Bradford broke Brees’ record for one brief year in 2016, but Brees promptly wrestled it back in 2017 by setting a new record of 72% of passes completed over a single season.On Sunday against the Cleveland Browns Terron Armstead Jersey , a team he hadn’t beaten since his first game as a Saint way back in 2006, Brees looked just a little bit off. Typically, when Brees misses a receiver, I blame the receiver. The route may have been run improperly or the receiver got snagged on a chip block.On four different occasions, however, it appeared Brees uncharacteristically missed the mark. First, he overthrew a wide open Ben Watson in the end zone. It almost seemed like he forgot he was throwing to a six foot three inch 37 year old instead of a six foot seven inch 31 year old Jimmy Graham. The Saints had to settle for a field goal.Next, Brees under threw a streaking Ted Ginn Jr. who would have certainly scored a touchdown, assuming he caught it. Ginn had to stop his route completely and come back up field before the pass was nearly intercepted by a Browns cornerback. The Saints didn’t score on that possession at all.Later, Brees overthrew Ginn, who has clocked unofficial 40 yard dash times between 4.28 and 4.45 as he created separation in the endzone. Last week Max Unger Jersey , Ryan Fitzpatrick seemed to overthrow speedster DeSean Jackson, but his wheels were able to catch up. Brees’ ball was so far overthrown, the fastest player in a Saints uniform didn’t have a chance. In the fourth quarter, when a touchdown would have padded the Saints’ thread-thin point cushion, Brees threw ahead of Austin Carr. Carr had created almost a yard separation between him and his defender, but Brees missed another important scoring opportunity.In the end, the Saints pulled out a nail biting win, but they have two missed extra points and a missed field goal to thank for that miracle. I think Brees may have been trying to protect the ball and not risk an interception, but these missed opportunities almost spelled the difference in a closely fought game. I fully expect Brees to bounce back next week against the Falcons. Pundits have always referred to a quarterback’s “fall off a cliff” game, and with the way Brees prepares and takes care of his body, I just don’t see this as being that game. After all Cheap Cameron Jordan Jersey , he completed so many other tight window throws. His game tying touchdown pass to Michael Thomas was a thing of pure beauty. But those four passes sure had me scratching my head.How did the Saints spend their summer? The New Orleans Saints have been busy in the months leading up to training camp, working out privately with personal trainers and their more-experienced peers.Let’s take a quick look around the roster to see how different players are preparing:There’s been a lot of noise made over how “raw” Davenport is coming out of the gate, especially his lack of experience in a three-point stance.He’s had a busy summer since getting drafted, working out with other rookies on the beach in Los Angeles and attending Von Miller’s Ozarks Mountains retreat, featuring guest coaches like Bruce Smith and Warren Sapp.We know Davenport will enter training camp ready for action after a minor thumb injury sidelined him in OTA’s.I’m eager to see how he develops under defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen’s instruction.Marcus Williams ended his rookie year with a big mistake that we won’t discuss further in this space.He apparently locked himself in a gym for the next six months, motivated to be the best version of himself.Now the sophomore looks the part of a Mr. Universe competitor, and maybe a Pro Bowl safety.Send thoughts and prayers and good vibes to whichever poor receiver (Mike Evans) is going to get tested by Williams first on an ill-advised sideline jump ball (from Ryan Fitzpatrick) first (week one, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers).On the other side of the ball, Saints left tackle Terron Armstead has been going through the ringer at Duke Manyweather’s offensive line training facility.Manyweather is an innovator in training techniques for linemen, and has recently been working with clients like Armstead, Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson http://www.saintscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-demario-davis-jersey , and Jacksonville Jaguars tackles Jermey Parnell and Cam Robinson.Now that he’s back to his old self after a few untimely injuries, Armstead should cement himself as a top five left tackle in the NFL.Alvin Kamara went viral earlier this summer for hauling a Jeep and loaded squat rack down the road, but he’s also kept busy by putting on a couple of youth football camps in Chattanooga and New Orleans.Michael Thomas (now bulked up to about 220-pounds) flew out to join Drew Brees near the future Hall of Famer’s San Diego home to practice timing routes and keep fresh during the long break between OTA’s and training camp.Even the special teamers are getting in good work.Saints placekicker Wil Lutz first took the field on the coaching staff for the Kohl’s College Football Kicking Camp, then worked out last week with his NFL peers at Kohl’s facilities to warm up for training camp.That’s not to mention the different team-building exercises the Saints players have taken on.Cameron Jordan took the team bowfishing one night, and seemingly everyone but Kamara caught something.Kamara found payback by challenging his teammates and fans to paintball, and is apparently still-undefeated weeks later.The coaches got involved, too, with Sean Payton losing a couple of bets on the green to Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.Payton’s golfing shenanigans only got worse, and it’s fair to think he’s more ready than anyone to get back to football:
