With Brees, it's not just about accuracy, it's about anticipation.

He has one of the weakest arms in the league, but because he has dedicated himself to mastering the mental aspects of the game, he throws with the best combination of accuracy and anticipation in the game.
i think Barkley will be the most interesting to watch in the draft...can see him top 6 or near falling out the first...frankly, I think drafting a lug like Glennon over him is insane, but hey...
as I've said many times, I've liked him since he was a frosh...though this year did shake me a bit, just some strange decisions under pressure
i will be disappointed if we don't draft smith, but will not be disappointed if we draft Barkley...there is a coach and a system that can win with him (quite possibly Reid), even if requires a lot of offensive weaponry a la Ryan
i feel like barkley will to some degree break the perceived USC curse...just because...
