It's not just the UH thing, it's the "system QB" thing.
I personally don't mind, it means that he knows how to make the most out of the system, that he truly understood what was going on.
He's going to be put in a system here in Houston that may be a bit different, but it's very QB friendly. If he can internalize the system like he did in UH, then we may have hit gold.
Brees makes the most of his system. He's got all the tools & he's a damn good athlete, but he'd be a second tier guy without that system.
