Saints-49ers scouting report
Saints on offense: Let the track meet begin! The Saints have a lightning-fast attack led by superbly accurate and confident quarterback Drew Brees. The slightly undersized signal-caller threw for an NFL-record 5,476 yards in the regular season and followed up with a 466-yard, three-touchdown effort vs. the Lions last week. Brees has excellent pre-snap recognition and can make all the throws. He has a deft touch on shorties, fires lasers over the middle, and throws one of the best deep balls in the business. Brees’s stable of pass catchers is impressive, including tight end Jimmy Graham (he has Gronk-like qualities), Marques Colston (he’s big and fast), Robert Meachem (he’s speedy and quick), and Devery Henderson (he’s fast and reliable). Darren Sproles is an explosive runner and receiver. The little guy must be accounted for on every snap.
