So when would it be a right time to draft a quarterback?
First pick in the second round. Jacobs and a few others will be available.
I've been reading alot of yall's comments, and it seems that the majority think that the saints should draft young or linehart. Don't these people realize that young and linehart will NOT play this season; and even if they do, they're aren't going to be any good. I think the saints should build up their defense, a la the bears, and get by with a veteran qb like volek from the titans, griese from the bucs, or garrard from the jags. I know we would have to trade a draft pick, but it might be worth it.
The we trade AB straight up for Griese, Collins, Volek, Kitna (with a #4) or Harrington. Let the rookie learn for a year before getting killed. Pick up 2 good offensive lineman and the rest on defense, primarily at Linebacker and Defensive tackle, with maybe a wide receiver thrown in.

Any of these would come in and provide some stability to the offense. Not alot of mistakes and that's what we need an average veteran QB who doesn't make mistakes. That's what killed us last year mistakes on offense and inability to move the ball.

and here i was thinking it was the entire team stinking up the joint, or the defense never being able to stop anybody are possibly someone coaching this team that shouldn't have been. if that the only problem is at qb, then heck just take either of the 2 qb's and trade the other picks away.

re: papz

we can get a qb in the 2nd round...guys like dj shockley and omar jacobs will be available.....if linehart or young are busts, the saints will be back to where they are rightnow...plus given the fact that benson "lost" money this season, it worth saving a few million dollars and get a proven vet.

You know Win we are talking about QB's here not coaches or the rest of the team. I said nothing about the Saints not needing some coaches or anyone else on the team.

I am assuming you would keep AB? Just a thought but I think I'm right!

RE: re: papz

we need a qb because the qb position has the greatest influence on the overall outcome on any team. it is the one position that can make or break a team. a team does not need a superstar to win, but they do need someone who can manage an offense.

the saints cannot afford to pass up on a qb that is ranked right up there with peyton manning. it may be 2 or 3 years before he completely takes over the team, but he can start right away and run the offense. the qb positon is the single most valuable position on a football team. when you need a qb and one of the most nfl ready college qbs in recent years is available you have to take him. especially when the draft is so incredibly deep at our other major need, linebacker.

Worse than Brooks? You would have to go to the Croation school for the blind & mentally retarded to find that!

Is it just me, or does this sound like a post from someone formally known as BlackOnBlack?

i'll be happy to answer that. if my choice doesn't include a upgrade at qb, and my next coach was someone that could get the most out of his players, stay in their butts demand perfection then the answer is yes. changing just for the sake of changing does what? nothing! if you're not changing for the better then leave it alone.

The point is, if you want a good QB, draft him high in the first round. Peyton - #1 pick. Eli - #1 pick. Carson Palmer - #1 pick. Michael Vick - #1 pick. David Carr - #1 pick. Drew Bledsoe - #1 pick. Donovan McNabb - #2 pick. Steve McNair - #3 pick. Joey Harrington - #3 pick. Byron Leftwich - #7 pick. Ben Rothliesberger - #11 pick. Daunte Culpepper - #11 pick. Kyle Boller - # 19 pick. Rex Grossman - #22 pick.

Notice a trend anybody? Every single one of those #1, #2, or #3 picks are still in the NFL and still starting. Sure you can go ahead and say, "Well, umm, well for every Peyton Manning there's a Ryan Leaf or a Jim Druckenmiller." Right. Look at the facts people. Go ahead, I dare you to stop being ignorant to the facts. The majority of the QBs that are drafted in the top 3 are studs. Sure there are great stories like Tom Brady or Marc Bulger, but if you want a safe bet, go with the QB with the #2 pick. The chances of having a successful QB pick in the top 3 are probably 75%. The chances of having a successful starting quarterback in the later rounds is probably 1/30. You guys are worried about a bust? Trust me, you'll get a bust if you pass up on Leinart, or even Young.
