Lastly, Drew Brees has been sub-par this year despite leading the Saints to a winning record.
He hasn’t been the passer we have seen in previous years. While he has been the offensive leader like we’ve seen in previous years, his on-field play just isn’t quite there. Brees is just nearing the end of his career, and his arm strength makes it look obvious.
At the beginning of Monday night’s game, Brees looked downright awful. He wasn’t able to hit any receivers and when he did, he didn’t put the ball in a place where it gave that receiver the opportunity to run and gain more yardage.
He did come back and play well, leading the team to a comeback victory. But, this was their second-straight week trailing by double digits, and it could eventually sting them.
Taysom Hill might be the most overpaid player in the NFL; he has not looked like the heir. The next step for the New Orleans Saints might be giving Jameis Winston a chance to show what he can do. After all, he was the passing leader just last year.
The New Orleans Saints are off to an ugly 3-2 start to their season. They’ve lost to the Raiders, and they barely beat the now 1-4 Chargers on Monday. These three players might quickly see their playing time and future coming to an end with the team.
