Found August 20, 2012 on Football Nation:
New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees throws touchdown passes. Quite often, in fact.  Brees also stays healthy, which enables him to toss those TD passes game after game after game. Brees will enter the 2012 season within range of a long-standing NFL record that once appeared untouchable.

Last season, Brees shot past Dave Krieg (27 consecutive games), hall-of-famer Dan Marino (30) and future HOF’er Brett Favre (36) in the record books, ending the season with a TD connection in 43 straight. Here’s how the first quarter of the 2012 season looks for Brees and the Saints: Week 1 vs. Washington Redskins The Redskins allowed 14 TD passes in the second half of the season, although they shut out Eli Manning and Matt Moore in that stretch. Brees last faced the Redskins in Week 13 of the 2009 season, throwing 2 TD passes (and 1 INT) to...

Saints Nation: Greg Camarillo Comes to Saints With a Real Shot of Making Roster

If you had told me at the beginning of training camp that the Saints would bring in Greg Camarillo at some point during the preseason, I would have told you he stood zero shot at making the roster because the Saints' depth was too significant. Marques Colston, Lance Moore and Devery Henderson had and still have the top three spots locked up - none of that has changed. Behind...
