Saints | Brees looks good
Mon, 31 Jul 2006 06:44:39 -0700
Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, reports on his third day of training camp, Sunday, July 30, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (shoulder) had his sharpest performance, throwing crisp, fluid passes with accuracy and velocity. Brees showed off the deep ball with a perfectly placed 40-yard pass to rookie WR Mike Hass in team drills. Hass got about one step behind the safeties, and Brees dropped the ball right into his outstretched arms.
it's not an official mistake (and therefore concern for Charger fans) unless
1) Drew's arm holds out in real regular season play and he succeeds
2) Rivers fails to succeed
if one of the two above scenarios don't take place Drew being let go is of no concern to Charger fans world wide.
Drew being let go should not concern a Charger fan. We cant make the choice, like it or loath it, we need to support the team, players come and go. The team is forever (Until the owner slinks out of town at midnight to rename the team the Ravens or something such).
Great news for the Saints but the real test will be when he gets hit. Thats what took Pennington down again.
I agree with you in principal, and nothing should stop a Charger fan from cheering the bolts on.
But, at the same time, It's ok to be "concerned" with managerial decisions made on player movement....all in the sake of sports debate and what we, as fans, think should be done to better the team.
But, as you said, in the end, agree with the moves or not, we should all be out there in the end cheering for and being most concerned with the play of whomever is on the field playing for the Chargers.
Saints | Brees expected to play one quarter; others to follow

Brett Martell, of the Associated Press, reports New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (shoulder) is expected to play through most of the first quarter of the team's preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 12. Brees playing means QBs Adrian McPherson and Jason Fife may not see any action. Head coach Sean Payton said he intends to play reserve QB Jamie Martin in the second quarter, followed by QB Todd Bouman "at some point in the third quarter."
Saints | Brees ready to roll

Larry Holder, of the Biloxi Sun-Herald, reports New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (shoulder) is ready for the team's preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 12. Brees' progression has steadily increased throughout much of training camp. He would typically take reps in one of the two-a-day practices and then limit his throws in the other. Lately, Brees has increased his throw count and the yardage he can toss. Brees said he's felt comfortable making throws of at least 55 yards. Brees said he was about 85 percent once training camp kicked off two weeks ago. He believes enduring the training camp grind will bring him back up to full speed. "I've at least attempted to make all the throws and it's still a process and it's still coming," Brees said. "I wouldn't say that I was exactly 100 percent, but I would say that I was close."
Brees has seen better days......watch....kimosabee....
Another day, another stumbling block removed by Mr. Brees.
Next he'll face Darth Vader and steal Natalie Portman away as his mistress.
I think he has some other plans for defending Liberty and the American Way .....
I wish Drew well and hope he recovers but I don't care how good he says he feels...he's got to be worried that that shoulder will get slammed again.... It will take months into the season to really assess the extent of this injury...and the impact on his performance. While I hope he does well (but not against us), I think the Chargers made the right call.
It will be interesting to see how he plays...and how he feels afterwards.
First time he gets hit and goes down on his right side with a 300 lb lineman on top of him, we'll know.
Ouch...I cringe thinking of it....so does he I bet.
