Coach Talk

Suburban Saints
This sport is all about exploiting the mismatches. Thanks to a thrilling performance from Drew Brees, we doubled up Divine Intervention at the quarterback position this past week (38 points to 17). Brees lit up the Colts secondary by recording 307 yards and four passing touchdowns.
Divine Intervention
Well, we certainly can't whine about a lack of opportunities this week, can we? Our pass-catching corps (four WR, one TE) combined to get a whopping 50 targets in Week 15. Those players should spend extra practice time working with their QBs, considering they recorded only 30 catches.
