Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Broncos

What we saw Sunday was quite possibly the worst offensive performance of the Drew Brees era. The unit looked out of synch all game and hurt themselves by not making plays that were there to make. Protection was actually decent, as they did a good job limiting Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil for the most part. But every time a play was there to be made, a critical drop, a poor play...
