Garbage? Not really. That's skewed by an early visit to green bay in which was a very close game, then a few upsets by crappy teams- tampa and the rams.
To keep it realistic, lets limit it to week 10 and beyond.
@ATL- Brees throws 322 yards, 2 tds, no ints. Wins the game 26-23.
@TEN- 337 yds, 2 tds, no ints, win.
@MIN- 412 yds, 5 tds, no ints, win.
Then compare that to the lions on the road after their week 9 BYE, a loss in chicago where Stafford throws 4 picks, followed by a road loss to the Saints where he throws 400+ yards but only 1 td and an int(we've seen their redzone problems), then a 1 point win in oakland where he throws for four touchdowns, followed by an embarrassing loss to green bay's backup QB to end their season.
My point is I'd much rather face stafford and suh than brees and their blitzing. We beat them once already and our o-line seems to get fired up to play their big front 4. I feel like megatron's their only real threat, compared to Brees who can spread the ball around and throw to anyone.
