Saints' Brees dismisses concerns about arm strength, stats

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Drew Brees sees discussions about his arm strength and recently declining passing yardage as moot points.

Efficiency is what wins, the 40-year-old, record-setting Saints quarterback says - and that will be a driving factor in determining his longevity.

"I can't throw the ball 70 yards like some guys can. But last time I checked, I don't really need to throw 70 yards in order to be effective and win games. So I'm not worried about it," Brees told The Associated Press in a telephone interview on Tuesday.
