Brees' one of the best deep passers in the NFL? Great. Well, he should find it easy to add to his numbers Monday night :(

Fixed now. ESPN took it down for a few hours for some reason.

Is the Pats defense still that awful against the deep ball as they were last year? I have the impression that they are a bit better, but I don't really trust that.
