The Saints Are Marching (Towards a Perfect Season)

Ultimately, I’m not SHOCKED that the Redskins couldn’t pull it together in order to take down the undefeated Saints yesterday, despite the game being eminently winnable, the Redskins after all have been absolutely pathetic this year. Nothing symbolizes that better than this play; with less than a minute remaining in the first half, Drew Brees throws an interception which is then immediately ripped out of the Redskins’ hands and run back for a touchdown by Saints receiver Robert Meachem.

Not only is this play just awful if you’re a Redskins fan, but look at that stiff-arm Brees throws at the beginning of the play, that’s a defensive end that Brees just pushes to the ground like he was a six-year-old child. Only one word can describe that stiff-arm, the rest of the play, the Redskins season and their racist team name; embarrassing.

Drew Brees is Good at Football

While I argue that calling Drew Brees the “NFL’s BEST quarterback” is a case of hyperbole running wild, this video of him is pretty fucking awesome. As part of the show Sport Science, Drew Brees was pitted against Olympic archers in an epic battle of accuracy from 20 yards.

The archers manage a meager 50% bullseye hits in their attempts while Brees steps up and demolishes them. The video is a little long, but you can do it, it’s worth it if only for the awesome slow-motion shots of Brees throwing a ball. I also learned something interesting, did you know that SOME wobble in a football toss is not only good, but NECESSARY? See, the Internet IS useful.
