In short, Brees being the Saints' only hope at scoring points and piling up yards gives him an advantage regarding career perspective. New Orleans currently lacks a running game and even if the offense gets going on the ground in 2012, it's Brees' passing threat which sets up the lanes.
Last season, New Orleans ranked No. 6 in rushing offense and averaged 4.9 yards per carry.
