The New Orleans Saints could get it done, now they are off to a 0-4 start. Drew Brees did what he could in this one, the Saints defense just could stop Aaron Rodgers from finding the end-zone 4 times to give the Packers a one point margin if victory over the Saints. This one has to hurt Bress more than the other three losses. Brees threw for 446 yards and had three touchdown passes, he was sacked twice. The Saints really wanted this game.
New Orleans just couldn’t stop Rodgers. He was able to throw for 4 touchdowns in a game the Saints look like they were going to pull out all the stops in. Bress did all he could he just fell shirt by one point, it was a point that had to steal the air out of the Saints balloon. Even though Drew Brees threw for 446 yards he was unable to get his Saints into the end-zone in the 4th quarter, the Packers defense did a good job stopping Bress when they really had to. The Saints could only put 3 points on the board in the last period of play and they watched their defense give up the game winning touchdown to Rodgers.
Brees has to be wondering what it is he needs to do to get his New Orleans Saints their first win of the season, throwing for 446 yards should have been enough to do it. One thing the Saints may want to do is find a way to run the football, they only rushed the ball 19 times for a total of 45 yards.

Brees has played three of the NFL's worst defenses so far - Redskins, Panthers, and Chiefs - with two of those matchups at home. Nonetheless, Brees has "just" 904 passing yards, 7 TDs vs. 5 INTs, and a 6.7 YPA. Not awful stats, certainly, but they're a far cry from the Brees we saw in 2011.
I spent a fair amount of time this week trying to figure out which...
Let's see, where should I start? Worst run defense in the league, pass defense ranks within the last ten teams in the league, only six total team sacks, no running game, numerous mental lapses… bottom line is the New Orleans Saints just aren’t really good right now and things won’t get any easier for them as the season progresses.Coming into the season, I knew the defense...
Drew Brees Ties a Long-Time Record Today In Green Bay -
On a 20-yd TD pass to WR Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints Drew Brees has tied Johnny Unitas’ NFL record for most consecutive games with a TD pass at 47! Unitas’ record spanned from 1956-60. 52 years later, Brees has tied it!

Time for me to put a smile on that face Juan…
Marques Colston was one of my favorite undervalued WRs coming into the season. Drew Brees was going to throw 5,000 yards again, right? Colston has easily the 2nd best target after Jimmy Graham coming into the season, but that has not come to fruition. A foot injury has caused a lack of production and according to reports, he could...
Philly Sports World Fantasy Week 4 recap
Predicting the Saints to lose and they did I am now 2-2, though not the way I predicted it. Drew Brees showed up and showed up big but it wasn’t enough. Fantasy owners got huge points off the 446 yards and 3 touchdowns.

There's nothing more to say about this defense than to sum it up by saying they suck. I hate to be that crass or simplistic, but right now they really don't do anything well. The run defense is porous, the pass defense is shaky at best when they are 100% healthy (which hasn't been often) and the pass rush takes bad to a whole new level. I have a theory that this defense...
