Life’s a Brees

Game of the Week

It was supposed to be the game of the year last night between the Saints and Patriots, but I guess nobody told Drew Brees.  Last year during the Saints bye week Sean Payton looked out his window and saw Brees out on the practice field that Sunday afternoon at 1 o’clock throwing footballs.  He walked outside and asked Brees what he was doing; Brees said he was simulating a game with no one else on the field.  Monday night it looked like there was no one else on the field again, as Brees went 18 of 23 for 371 yards and 5 touchdowns.  Those are Madden numbers, not numbers you see when you play a Belichick defense.  Brees was out there just toying with the Patriots secondary all night, every time there was a ball that hit the ground you were shocked, it only happened five times though.  I know Peyton Manning leads another great comeback this weekend and that Brett Favre is a man and he’s 40, but Drew Brees and the Saints looked like the team to beat in the NFL and Brees looked like the MVP.

What has me Impressed

The Saints have me impressed; I’m not going to say anymore.  Vince Young, you have me impressed a 99-yard touchdown drive to win the game.  Young converted fourth down after fourth down on that drive and it’s already being compared to “the drive”.  Young was doing a good job being a good “game manager” the past few weeks, but he was the “game changer” on Sunday he threw for 387 yards, now that impressive.  I was impressed with what Ray Rice did against the Steelers in a must win game for the Ravens, without him they don’t win that game.  Rice made a couple of runs that were game savers and he also caught a few balls out of the backfield, that were huge.  The Vikings defense has me impressed, I know everyone wants to talk about Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson, but their defense is better than their offense right now.  The guy who you have to love for the Vikes is Jared Allen and don’t forget the Williams wall in the middle.  You can’t run on those guys up the middle and it seems like Allen is all over the quarterback everytime he drops back to pass.  Other things that have me impressed this week are the Broncos, the Chargers, the Bengals, the Packers, the 49ers and Chris Johnson

What made me Depressed

Matthew Stafford made me depressed.  He had a great game last weekend in what really was the game of the year with the Browns.  Then he shows his toughness again starting on Thanksgiving when nobody thought he’d play.  He goes out and lays an egg, throwing four interceptions, that made me depressed.  The Texans make me depressed; especially when they play the Colts.  The Texans have beaten the Colts one time, but every time they play it seems like they should win.  Sunday was no different they were up 17-0 and lost.  Another thing from that game that makes me depressed from that game is Andre Johnson is amazing, but dropping a touchdown pass, come on Andre, you’re on my fantasy team.  Other things that made me depressed this weekend were the Raiders, Jake Delhomme, the Bears, the Redskins and that by Sunday all of the Thanksgiving leftovers were gone.
