Jeremiah: Recapping Week 2
Brees has thrown four interceptions, which is third worst in the NFL. One of those picks was returned for a touchdown.
"I'm not going to change my mentality, my aggressiveness, my approach, my preparation, but I do understand how important it is to take care of the football," Brees said this week, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
The Saints have put up 664 yards passing in two games, which sounds good. But they haven't necessarily been that effective through the air. New Orleans is only 20th in net yards per attempt thus far. The running game has been more effective to this point, but the Saints have trailed too often to use it.
The Times-Picayune points out that the Saints only have one play over 30 yards and two plays over 25 yards. This is an offense that excelled in going deep the last few years.
"The momentum-breaker, the interception, the dropped ball in the end zone, the missed block, there are a lot of things that can change the momentum of a game."
Brees knows that the offense has a number of issues. He says they are fixable. They have the right matchup this week (the Kansas City Chiefs) to fix them all.
