Maybe the Saints should pretend its third-and-long on every down. According to our friends a ESPN Stats & Analysis, that's when quarterback Drew Brees is at his best.

When facing third down and 6 or more yards, Brees has the highest passer rating in the NFL this season at 119.4. Tony Romo is a very close second at 119.3, followed by Matt Cassel (116.5) and Eli Manning (106.8). The league average is 77.7.
