Drew Brees: We’re just scratching the surface

The Saints have won six straight games after throttling the Buccaneers 30-10 on Sunday afternoon in a performance that featured strong performances across the board.

Drew Brees passed for 263 yards, the Mark Ingram/Alvin Kamara duo ran for 145 yards and the defense held the Bucs to 200 total yards for the afternoon. It’s the kind of balance that teams strive for on a weekly basis, but it can be hard to achieve.

To Brees, though, it’s just a start.

“I’m just telling you, I see this team every day. We’re just scratching the surface,” Brees said, via Peter King of TheMMQB.com.

Brees said “a great running game and a great defense” is his best friend and it’s not been a regular occurrence for the Saints to have both throughout Brees’ run with the team. One of the biggest reasons why they have it this year is because of the contributions of their rookie class.

Kamara and right tackle Ryan Ramczyk have solidifed the offense while cornerback Marshon Lattimore and safety Marcus Williams are making a big impact on a defense that has taken a big step up from last year. If those young players continue to grow over the second half, Brees might be right about what’s next for his team.

  1. Somebody in their scouting department knows how to identify talent, and they’re bring in some blue chip players. I’m not surprised one bit. New Orleans has good chance at the big prize this year.

  2. Since the NFL has had 16 game seasons, only 3 teams have ever started 0-2, and then gone on to reach 6-2 or better.

    The only teams to do that, other than this year’s Saints?

    The super bowl champion 93′ Cowboys and ’07 Giants.

    What are you talking about? Mickey Loomis should have been fired 5 years ago!

    Just awful.

    Loomis is a good GM, he doesn’t scout.

    Jeff Ireland came three years ago to head scouting, and its paying off.

    Just awful.

    glad the Pats got to play them early! Brees and Brady in the Bowl would be great, the two best QBs of their generation.

    Man this would be a dream matchup, possibly the best of all time, but it would suck to have to root against Brady, bc I can’t go against Brees!

  7. For the “well-informed” absolutevisuals post the Saints have beaten the Panthers, Dolphins, Lions and Packers who all had winning records at the time they played them. Do your homework before you post.

    The Saints haven’t beaten a single winning team outside of the Packers, so stop it.

    You might want to actually check your facts. Going into this weekend the Saints played the second toughest schedule (look it up) in the league and until theTampa Bay game, the only team that didn’t have a winning record when the Saints played them was Chicago. How did you like the Saints three touchdown win at Carolina???? They are a winning team !!!

  9. I guess they are. At least they are showing it.
    Fun team.
    HOF QB
    Great RB duo
    A very stiff defense..

    that last line must be a joke, since the last 3 years Ive been dissin those guys

  10. Saints are playing Good Football right now. I am not a Saints fan, but you have to love the way they are running the ball. Ingram and Kamara are perfect backs for that Offense.

  11. I think Brees is wrong, the Saints are close to maxing out. They need more players to raise the level. If they start getting a few injuries they don’t have the depth. But they are playing good.

  12. As a Panther fan, the Saints are the real deal this year. You can never count Brees out, running game looks great and the defense is vastly improved. I just hope we get the wild card birth because you guys are definitely taking the division.

    Bear down and bomb the Bills, Drew

    Sort of how the Bills bared down and beat your Raiders………..34-14. LOL.

  14. The negative comments against the Saints reminds me of the same thing I heard in 2009. All year long people were in denial until they won the Super Bowl.

  15. I love the haters coming on here saying we beat easy teams. No game is easy in the NFL. Maybe yall are a little salty because your team is not playing as well. Sorry! , NOT sorry!
