- Throws 5 picks tonight
- Pulled a Eagles Redzone clock expire at the 1/2 play (Remember how people crushed McNabb for this)
- Now leads the league in INTS.

Pressure busts pipes.

Sometimes I think we're too hard on our Eagle QBs when one of the Best Ever can put up games like this.

Drew Brees has always been like this.  He'll throw for 400 yards, 4 td' one week and 300 yards and 4 picks the next.  It doesn't change my opinion of him at all.

If he's inconsistent that doesn't matter. As long as he's been consistent enough to get playoffs. Then all he's gotta do is have 3 good games and bang, he's a won a super bowl

Watch him have a QB rating of 110 against the Giants next week..he is historically virtually flawless against them...

What's the extended weather look like next weekend? Cold weather doesn't affect his game that much,however if it's windy he does
struggle.

No idea..plus a forecast for next Sunday right now is about as accurate as a a tax return done by a 7th grader...

agreed it's almost impossible to predict weather this far out. It can turn on a dime this time of year,but it's worth
watching as the game gets closer. The saints playoff chances are pretty much dead now. Some teams quit and
mail it in when that happens. Others play without pressure and become dangerous when they have nothing to
play for. We'll find out soon enough which one the saints become.

Only 3 days of rest/prep, battered OL, and no Sean Payton. It was a recipe for disaster.

Damn..from everything I read on BBI, posters who live in the DC area are saying Skin fans are VERY confident they're putting this one in the W column on Monday night...I miss something?

Skins fans went from cautiously optimistic to delusional within one week :roll: all it took was doing the one thing a bunch of good teams have pretty much done...whip the pathetic Cowboys.

I'm not confident at all, im just talking possibilities. The Giants will be a hard W to get, especially after they a** blasted the packers. This game could easily go either way but i'm picking the skins to win this week. RG3 seems to play better in higher profile games and this is probably the biggest one of the season.

It depends on which Gints show up. Defense really needs to plow RG's arse good.

He's short, can't see over the line, fragile, low IQ, can't read a defense.  That's why he throws all of those INTs.

You don't have to explain yourself Red, I've liked you already :wub:

But yea the Redskins could have a good chance in all honesty. But some of your fellow Redskin brethren are a bit dilusional

You should never compare McNabb (who burns clock at halftime just about every year) to a guy who did it once in a career.
Brees has 22 TDs to 4 INTs in the playoffs.
He has a 3 game streak of 400 yard passing games in the playoffs (9 TDs and 2 INTs in those 157 throws)
McNabb has a 5 game streak of multiple turnovers in the playoffs.

Brees out-dueled Peyton Manning in a Super Bowl.

He has become a gunslinger lately, but it is hard to blame him with his horrendous D giving just about zero support.
No excuse for 5 picks of course but that was not the norm for him.

Now if you want to talk about his big mouth when defending scum like Vilma... that's another story.
