Saints are also setting records for being the worst defense in NFL history. It's not hard to throw against a secondary that doesn't know how to cover a deep post. Seriously - did you see how many times Thomas ran post routes and it worked perfectly? It's pathetic, and the Saints as an organization are in shambles right now.
I really wish the Steelers played the Saints this year. Ben would put up similar numbers as Peyton, if not better. He's a better quarterback right now than Peyton "noodle-arm" Manning and it's not even really a question. Manning has had to play easier secondaries and has had a run game throughout the season so far while Ben is just finally able to hand it off.
Manning isn't the same as he was, and when he plays against a legitimate, healthy defense - we'll see how he plays. Keep in mind, this is the same Manning that lost to a mediocre Patriot defense and threw 3 picks in the first quarter to an average-at-best Falcons secondary. As if that wasn't enough, he was confused by the Chargers' secondary - the CHARGERS
