Checkdowns: Drew Brees’ Accuracy is Flat-Out Ridiculous

Posted by Neil Paine on October 20, 2009

Chris Brown of Smart Football turned us on to this SportScience video about Drew Brees' uncanny passing accuracy -- watch it and be amazed:

Yes, Brees is standing a lot closer to that target than the Olympic archers would be, but the fact that he was able to hit such a small area with such precision and consistency goes a long way toward explaining how a 6'0" 2nd-round draft pick with a surgically-repaired throwing shoulder was able to become arguably the best pure passer in the game this season. (BTW, Chris has another post about Brees and one of his favorite plays here.)
