The irony of this season's road woes is that the Saints have the most road wins since the 2009 season. I think we are witnessing a decline in Brees effectiveness, which is natural with most his age. Combine that with teams are learning how to defend them. The Screen play use to be their bread and butter. This season they couldn't execute it. I think we will see a revamping of the O during the offseason and Brees at the helm one more season. Yesterday, he didn't shake game jitters until late in the 4th and he just doesn't throw the ball like he use to. Throwing for over 5,000 yards this season is just a stat because most of those passes were to Thomas and Sproles out of the backfield and a substitute for a running game. That's what he had to do given the lack of quality O Tackles.

I was just on Sirius/XM's NFL channel talking about the Peyton Manning's legacy a few minutes ago. They had me on for about 20 minutes. Basically, what I said was this;
In order to evaluate Manning's legacy objectively, you have to breakdown his career into three eras. The Jim More era, in those playoff games, there were ten dropped balls in key situations. Add, as a HC, how many playoff games has Mora won? During the Dungy era, their nemisis was the Patriots led by the best HC of all time. Put Manning with Bellichick and how many playoff games would Manning have won? Remember, Football is a team sport. Bellichick is a much better HC than Dungy. In the Broncos era, it wasn't Manning that was covering Jacoby Jones at the end of the game when Flacco hit him with the winning bomb. Manning had that game won and it was the Defense that lost the game.
On another note, I won my only bet yesterday with the Pats. If the 49ers and Broncos cover today, I will have made up much of my losses this season.
