Despite Week 2 Miscues, Drew Brees is Playing Some of His Best Football

Drew Brees isn’t “regression-proof.” No one is. It’s just about how you continue to evolve with an ever-changing and ever-evolving game. Brees’ trademark has never been the deep ball, so when you mark deep ball throwing power as a sign of regression, you’re already fooling yourself. Brees has always been known as a surgeon, a technician out on the football field. He creates mismatches, understands the chess match three or four moves ahead, and is a ruthless provocateur for any defense. Unforgivingly carving up defenses and exploiting personnel like Hollywood and Richard Roundtree in the 70’s.
