Cheap Customized Atlanta Falcons Jersey

  • Let’s just get the stats out of the way to begin with Atlanta Falcons Hoodie , because Drew Brees is doing some ridiculous things and that’s why you’re here, right?Through nine games, Brees has completed 77.3 (!!!) percent of his passes for 2,601 yards with 21 touchdowns and one interception. He’s on pace to smash the record for completion percentage in a season of 72 percent, set by none else than Brees last season. Brees has a passer rating of 123.8, currently ahead of Aaron Rodgers’ record 122.5 rating in 2011 that earned him NFL MVP honors. He also has a rating of 88.1 on ESPN’s Total QBR — just a hair behind Tom Brady’s record of 88.5 from his MVP season in 2007. It’s been seven years and I’m pretty sure still nobody knows what QBR is, but the point is Brees is crushing it.A week ago, in the biggest game of the year for the Saints, he threw for 346 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-35 win against the Los Angeles Rams. It was a huge day for running back Alvin Kamara too — he had 116 total yards and three touchdowns — but with the Rams rallying and the game on the line, it was Brees who saved the day with a game-clinching, 72-yard touchdown to Michael Thomas.In a year when passing numbers are through the roof, Brees’ absurd season is flying under the radar Cheap Customized Atlanta Falcons Jerseys , even after he broke Peyton Manning’s passing record in Week 5. He’s twice been the AP Offensive Player of the Year, but never MVP. With his 40th birthday coming in January, Brees is making a strong case for his first time winning the award for the first time.Efficiency: 9.9This is a buzzword for quarterbacks that’s received a lot more positively than “game manager,” but it really all boils down to the same thing: An efficient quarterback throws touchdowns and completions, and doesn’t throw many interceptions and incompletions.So by that measure, Brees is the definition of efficiency.He’s completing passes at a record-breaking percentage and he’s thrown just one interception all season. Take away drops, throwaways, and times he was hit as he was throwing, and the numbers would be even more outrageous:When Brees completed 22 of 25 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns against the Bengals in Week 10, he added another checkmark to his long list of NFL records:Thomas has emerged as a legitimate No. 1 receiver for the Saints, but Brees is excelling with a receiving corps that is uninspiring, otherwise.What has helped tremendously has been the emergence of Kamara as one of the NFL’s most special running backs. With the Saints able to lean on the combination of Kamara and Mark Ingram Womens Customized Atlanta Falcons Jerseys , Brees averaged 33.5 attempts per game in 2017 — his lowest average since joining the Saints in 2006. The pace is similar in 2018 at 33.8 passes per game for Brees, much lower than the 42-attempt average he had in 2016.A more balanced offensive attack — not to mention the receiving skills of Kamara — has taken Brees’ completion numbers to new heights and likely extended his career.MVP-ness: 7.8Not a word, I know. But you know what I mean. This may be Brees’ best shot at winning MVP, but it’ll still be an uphill climb.If there’s a reason Brees doesn’t win the award this year, it’ll be because other quarterbacks are throwing more passes and connecting on bigger plays. The 72-yard touchdown to Thomas was Brees’ fourth completion of 40 yards or more, and he got to five with a 42-yard pass to Keith Kirkwood a week later. Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers are each at 11. Hell, Case Keenum has 10.While Brees is doing a remarkable job avoiding mistakes, the Saints offense doesn’t ask him to uncork many deep balls, and his final stats probably won’t match up with the gaudy numbers of Mahomes or Jared Goff.Brees is pacing to finish with 4,624 yards and 37 touchdowns. Those would be his eighth-best and fourth-best totals in a season, respectively.Meanwhile, there are five quarterbacks (Matt Ryan , Mahomes, Ben Roethlisberger, Rodgers, Goff) on pace for more than 5,000 yards. Mahomes is on track to be the third quarterback ever to top 50 touchdowns.The Saints’ recent signing of Dez Bryant looked like it could be a boon to Brees’ passing stats, but that hope quickly disappeared when the receiver tore his Achilles in his second practice. If Brees posts the same exact numbers in the last seven games of the year, he’ll be in MVP contention. But unless some other quarterbacks slow down, there’s a good chance he comes up short again.Legacy: 9.6Let’s throw in one more overused buzzword for good measure. Because with the careers of a generation of quarterbacks winding down, it feels like Brees if finally starting to get his due.When Brees claimed the record for career passing yardage earlier this season — a number he’s now added nearly 1,000 more yards to — Tony Gonzalez argued that he’s not just an all-time great, he’s the all-time greatest:With Brees continuing to push passing numbers into a different stratosphere, that’s becoming a more accepted take.He can’t match Tom Brady in Super Bowl rings Atlanta Falcons T-Shirt , or Peyton Manning in MVP awards. But at a time when he should be hitting the twilight of his time in the NFL, Brees is putting up career-best stats and has the Saints very much in the Super Bowl hunt. Whatever due he hasn’t been given already, it’s time you give it now. It’s Super Bowl week in Atlanta, so we’ve got some super links to start your Monday. Continue reading for today’s edition of Falcoholinks. Cutting Corners? Our positional reviews roll on, and last week we focused on the 2018 performance of the cornerbacks. It was a rough year for the group, especially for Robert Alford, who likely played his way into a cap casualty situation. Alford was downright dreadful, and his recent struggles combined with his age and contract means he’s probably wearing a different uniform next year. So how can the Atlanta Falcons turn a weakness into a strength for 2019? Dave Choate looks at some possibilities that are on the table. Mock Draft: Third Edition ‘Tis the season for mock drafts, and The Falcoholic’s resident draft analyst Kevin Knight tries his hand at how things may shake out for Atlanta on draft night. In his third mock draft, Kevin sees the Falcons snagging a premiere defensive tackle and going heavy on the trenches through the first four rounds. Whet your appetite for the 2019 NFL Draft right here. Saints ComplaintsThe saga of the Saints and the NFC Championship game marches on, and this week brought us massive joy in the form of galaxy brain overreactions. Lawsuits, Senate floor speeches Atlanta Falcons Hats , participation parades: it’s all here, and it’s all great.There’s no denying that the now infamous non-call was terrible. Nickell Robey-Coleman flat-out admitted that he committed pass interference to save a potential touchdown. But unfortunately blown calls happen, and the Atlanta Falcons are acutely familiar with one that could have turned the tide in the 2012 NFC Championship Game. So with Saints fans content to gripe or boycott the Super Bowl altogether, we’ve got a preview of the Patriots and Rams match-up. What To Do About BeasleySave for his 2016 season where he led the NFL in sacks, Vic Beasley has yet to string together the consistent production that you’d expect from a former first-round pick. That disturbing trend continued in 2018, as he was another one of the Falcons that you’d file under “letdown” last season.Beasley is in line for a significant raise next year, and his performance to date certainly doesn’t equate to the $12.9 million he’s owed. Vic Beasley is likely headed elsewhere in 2019.
