I went back and watched all of Drew Brees' throws, and it's hard to say how much he was affected by his shoulder because Dallas' pressure forced so many quick, short throws. And he got hit on most of his early attempts downfield. Brees didn't thrown downfield much, but when he had time to step up and deliver late in the game, he was effective. Sean Payton said they wanted to throw downfield more early but pressure prevented it.
