He's an accurate, composed passer with a ton of weapons: LT2, Gates, McCardell, Caldwell, etc. I can't comprehend why people don't think he'll repeat least years #s. The belief, I know, is that Marty is normally a run first guy. So what? That just sets up the long pass and LT2 is one of the best catching balls out of the backfield and Gates can always break one.
Personally, I think it's crazy that he's not listed as a top-10 QB. Just my opinion.
Drew Brees had only 3,100 yards last year and 27 TDs. 9 or 10 of which came in only 2 games. Perhaps it was the emergence of Gates who set a TD record last season? Most people don't predict that to be repeated..
Outside of a few outstanding games last year, Brees was very ho-hum. Sure Gates will get his, but not to a record setting pace again. Plus, the Charger's won the division last year and have a much more difficult schedule this year.
