Drew Brees

When it comes to Drew Brees, the stat sheet speaks for itself. The nine-time Pro Bowler has thrown for over 57,000 yards, accumulated 402 touchdown passes (currently tied with Tom Brady for fourth place on the all-time list), and was the catalyst for the 2009 Super Bowl season in which he won the Super Bowl MVP.

Even with a lack of weapons, Brees can not be taken lightly as he is more than capable of leading any team to victory. Brees has 1,304 passing yards this season which is good for seventh in the league. The astonishing thing about that specific stat is he sat out Week 3 vs. the Panthers.

If the Falcons want to move to 6-0 they will have to get Drew Brees out of his comfort zone and push him out of the pocket to force errant throws. Look for Dan Quinn’s d-line to finally show up in the Superdome.

Season stats: 1,304 passing yards, 6 TDs, 3 INTs
