Also there is huge lack of a running threat. Teams can play the pass without worrying about LT, Turner, Sproles, or even Tolbert.
Agree 100% this is exactly what has happened to Rivers he lost his supporting cast, a cast that made him better not the other way around.
SD got rid of the wrong player again in Brees.
If they would have just managed to keep Sproles things might be different in SD.
They had a great window to win a SB but it passed them bye. That's got to really hurt to a SD fn.
