New Orleans Saints
Quarterback Drew Brees
The New Orleans Saints may not have been the best defense in the league for a few years now but their offense is still very scary. It remains scary because of six foot tall 38 year old quarterback Drew Brees. Drew Brees has enraged Buccaneers fans for a decade now winning 14 games as a Saint, one as a Charger, in 23 games. Beating the Buccaneers practically 2/3 of the time is an appropriate reason to want a guy as far away from you as possible. Brees has 6490 yards and 45 touchdowns in his career against Tampa.
Week 14 this season was the first time the Buccaneers played against Drew Brees where didn’t throw a touchdown pass. Jameis Winston didn’t have a touchdown in that game either, for the first time in his career, so Drew shouldn’t feel too bad. One thing the Buccaneers actually do well against Drew Brees is pick him off. They’ve intercepted him 26 times in the 23 games with seven multi interception games. Turning the ball over doesn’t hurt as much when you score 30 points a game. That is why I still despise playing against the Saints. He is getting up there in age but he is still one of the most feared quarterbacks in the league.
Listen I don’t want these guys to retire or quit playing football, I would just really appreciate it if the Buccaneers didn’t have to play them nearly 40% of every season. This Bucs team is different from the past but the division rivals are always going to be there. Who would you like to see gone from the division. Sound off on Twitter or Facebook.
