Drew Brees is not a terrible person for tipping $3 on a takeout order
Jimmy Graham, TE, New Orleans Saints (Last Week: ) Stats: 37 catches, 593 yards and six touchdowns Yes, this is still ridiculously high for a tight end, but hes more than earned the lofty respect. Graham is arguably the best receiver in football right now, and hes putting up video game numbers on a weekly basis. He Authentic Drew Brees Nike Elite Jersey is well on his way to breaking Rob Gronkowskis single-season receiving record for a tight end (1,327 set in 2011) and might even become the first tight end in history to lead the NFL in receiving yards. Those numbers along with the Saints 5-0 record seem to indicate hes well worthy of consideration, even this high on the list. 4. Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts (Last Week: Unranked) Stats: 62.2% completion percentage, 1,144 yards, nine total touchdowns (seven passing, two rushing) and two interceptions How I managed to leave him off this list entirely last week is inexplicable hey, we all make mistakes. The Colts are one of the top-five teams in football right now, and Luck is the general leading the charge.
We break down the fantasy implications. It was another accurate display from Drew Brees in Week 5. The Saints ‘ star quarterback completed 29-of-35 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns against the Bears in Chicago, leading New Orleans to a 5-0 record with a 26-18 win. Brees threw both touchdowns in the first half and looked like he would easily eclipse 300 yards on the afternoon. The Saints eased off a bit in the second half with a huge lead, though, while the Bears made some adjustments to stop some of the downfield throws. Fantasy impact: It was a surgical effort, and if the Saints had been in a closer game, Brees likely would have done more damage. Still, he didn’t turn the ball over and racked up enough points in the first half to keep fantasy owners pleased. The Saints take on the Patriots next week.
Drew Brees delivers another solid fantasy day
“When my name is called to do the job, I go out there and do my best,” said Thomas, a Chicago native. “That’s all I can really ask for. When my name is called, just go out there and perform.” The Bears responded with a seven-play, 80-yard drive that ended with Jeffery’s TD. But they gave the ball back to Brees with 2:41 left in the half, plenty of time for the star QB to direct another scoring drive. Thomas had a big 2-yard run on fourth-and-1 from the Chicago 27, and then went 25 yards for the score on a screen play with 32 seconds remaining. Thomas’ second TD reception made it 20-7 and was the result of a perfect call by Payton, who still has a deft touch when it comes to play-calling after missing last season as a result of the bounty scandal.
Drew Brees leads unbeaten Saints past Bears 26-18
Most non-NFL players (including me)never tip on a takeout order, so why should Brees? Just because he has treasure chests full of money doesnt mean hes obligated to make it rain at the local Chinese fusion place. Brees responded to the issue on Twitter, clarifying that if he had sat down and ate at the restaurant, he would have tipped generously. In case anyone still cares about this report: I tipped $3 on a takeout order. Had we sat down it would have been 20%+ http://t.co/Ktfnnl10pX Drew Brees (@drewbrees) July 31, 2013 Daniel Schreiber, managing partner of the Del Mar Rendezvous, felt bad that the receipt leaked and Brees fell under fire for the tip, and decided to donate money to Brees foundation to make up for it. I have issued a personal apology to Mr. Brees along with a personal donation of $888.88 (eight is the luckiest number in Chinese culture) to his Breed Dream Foundation today.
