I don’t know how else to say this. We’re off our game.
The Saints have the best offense in football since Drew Brees arrived in 2006 (finishing with the NFL’s most yards in 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2011), and despite putting out pretty decent raw numbers in the first two games of this season, the offense hasn’t had the same oomph we’ve grown accustomed to over the years.
And I think I know why.
I don’t want to oversimplify the problem, but, the offensive line has allowed too much pressure, Drew hasn’t handled that pressure well, and his receivers haven’t been as consistent as we’ve seen in years past.
A deep dive into the statistics coming up after the jump.
