Response to NFL.com "Unpopular Opinions: Drew Brees is most underrated player ever"

If I'm doing a Top Ten List of GOAT Quarterbacks, these are some of the things that I give weight to in my mind when you factor where Brees places on such a list...

First, Brees had an advantage of the Irsay/Colts post-AFC loss meltdown in 2004/2005 of pass defense rules tweaks; while Brees' numbers jumped here, they went stratospheric post-rules changes...

By comparison, somebody like Marino had passing numbers that no one came closed to until the changes in pass defense

Post PreSeason Game Saints vs Jaguars Observations

Posted 08-10-2018 at 07:00 PM by jeanpierre

Some thoughts about last night's game:
  • Though the RB, WR, OL, were "1's", Brees sat so I'm not real panicked by the blasť offensive performance...

    ...after all, the first series saw Tom Savage throwing to Garret Griffin to convert a 3rd down against the Jags "No. 1's"...


  • Brings me to this - Payton & Co isolate QB vs QB in with the same variables (i.e. plays, personnel) so they can get a better sense of these reserve QBs...

2018 Saints Offensive Line Outlook

Posted 06-21-2018 at 12:32 PM by jeanpierre

Despite the highest paid lineman of the unit missing half the season, again, the Saints return nearly all of the league's best unit from last season...

Sans its most important reserve/swing starter in Senio Kelemete...

The loss of Kelemete cannot be understated...

While I could lament the loss of Kelemete and the heresy of arguing to trade the often unavailable Terron Armstead (aka Mr. Glass), I'll stay on point...

So without further ado,

Playing GM for the Saints 2018 NFL Free Agency...

Posted 03-11-2018 at 04:34 PM by jeanpierre

Well, if I'm playing GM for the Saints 2018 Free Agency season, this is who I'm looking at...

Priority Re-signs for the Saints:

UFAs

QB 09 Drew Brees - Best Passer in the game today, does he listen to his agent and sink the franchise again with a bloated salary not allowing any add'l talent? My respect for his will take a serious hit if he lets Condon **** this team again when it's so close...

FB 29 John Kuhn or 42 Zach Line - while it

Payton Must Show Self-Discipline and Continue His Path

Posted 09-14-2017 at 07:09 AM by jeanpierre

(Work in Progress)

Well, when you waste six plus years see-sawing back and forth over what kind of scheme you want to run, drafting personnel for a 4-3 and then for a 3-4 only to go back to a 4-3, you can expect these kind of results...

Firmly believe Payton the Coach would be fine with a strong GM who actually built the team, both personnel and defensive coaches, and who could veto Payton on personnel moves...

Payton gets in trouble when he has too much
