Their 0-4 start isn't all that surprising to some. Brees is going through a much tougher situation in NO than Romo is in Dallas. Everyone keeps saying how bad Romo has it behind his OL when Brees has been sacked one more time than Romo.
Romo's been sacked 8 times this season which is the same number of sacks Aaron Rodgers suffered in one half vs Seattle. There's teams in the NFL who's OL is worse than the Cowboys so stop acting like it's Romo against the world.
[View Full Quote]No team has ever had to deal with what the Saints have had to deal with entering this season. Sean Payton is one of the best coaches in the NFL it was a major blow to the organization to lose him for the entire season. Losing him shows what happens when a team doesn't have solid leadership at head coach. The Saints added to their problem by choosing one interim head coach for 6 games and another interim head coach the last 10 games.
That's basically saying they didn't have confidence in Kromer. If the Saints were smart they would have chosen one head coach for the entire season instead of sending a message to their team they don't believe in Kromer. Regardless of what the Saints are going through Brees is still having a statistically better year than Romo.
He's passed for more yards, TD's and has fewer picks than Romo plus his passer rating is higher than Romo's. Brees has had a much better career than Romo care to argue that? His career regular season numbers blow Romo's away and his playoff record is obviously a lot better and you're asking why is Brees better than Romo?
at this point in time.
I don't care what happened in the past, as of right now, Romo has his team at 2 - 2...
You can summarize Brees's career and boyhood all the way back to when he was born with your long winded posts...that means nothing to me.
As far as Bounty Gate goes...they deserve it! I have no sympathy for a coach that allows his team to do what they are accused of.
Hey, I though it was said by some that Brees is actually a "coach on the field"?
