Is Drew Brees ready to go?
There are reasons to think that Brees is playing better than he has at any point this season. He's hitting on throws down the field, and the team is even calling some plays designed for him to take shots without much of a safety net. That hasn't happened a whole lot in recent years.
But there are also reasons to wonder. There were moments of awkwardness the last couple of weeks, some errant throws. Brees was either getting dialed in or was still a little bit off in ways independent from his recovery and playing with inexperienced players.
So, which is it? We broke down his throw chart and how he's distributing the ball to see if there are positive trends or reasons for concern heading into this weekend.
