METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Drew Brees describes the Saints' passing offense as an ''equal opportunity'' system.
Politics aside, Brees demonstrates a democratic approach to spreading the wealth in regards to the number of targets he finds through the air.
He hit 11 different receivers last Sunday in a victory over San Francisco, during which rookie tight end Josh Hill became the 10th Saint this season with a touchdown catch.
Brees' ability to connect with numerous receivers becomes Atlanta's concern when the Falcons host the Saints this Thursday night.
Brees says every Saints receiver - and even running backs - know their chance to make a catch could come at any time and they have to be ready.
Atlanta coach Mike Smith says Brees' distribution of the ball puts a lot of stress on defenses.
