Look at the catches New Orleans makes for Brees. Look at the tape. He throws plenty of throws high, low, early, late and all over the place. His WR's and TE go up and get it. When the ball is in the air IT IS THEIRS. Yes your receivers do make a difference.
A high ball to our receivers is responded to by putting their hand in the air and pop the ball up 10 feet in the air so it can be intercepted.
...which is a symptom of a very young receiving corps.
Our starting 3 are a rookie, a second year man, and a seldom used third year player.
The kind of things that you see happening in NO take time to develop. Offensive continuity. The kinds of things that happen when a team plays in the same offense fro more than one season at a time.
Remember...the Saints are 2 years removed from being a 7-9 team, and four seasons removed from being a 3-13 team. What made them become the team they are today? Four years of the same system, the same QB, and the same philosophy. Give it time.
I wouldn't try to compare our O to the Saint's Offense"That's sound s crazy to me cause NO use to be our punching bag" I'm just disapointed because I feel that we have a better passing team than we are showing. It makes me mad that Cutler and the Bears are actually doing well in their passing game with his crappy receiver.
