I guess now the "Is the shoulder OK" debate may officially begin. Have at it :D

News articles say 4-5 months before he's 100%... Worst case in that situation places it at mid-August. Two pre-Season games to warm up at game speed. I'm strangely OK with that. He's a smart guy that can pick up the offensive scheme on paper while rehabing.

Well, what's done is done and I am hoping we haven't made a terrible mistake. I like Drew Brees and the way he played the game in SD, as well as his attitude. Not too sure about his attitude coming to N.O., especially when I see this:

Quote:

When the news about Culpepper's trade went through the league, Drew Brees decided he would put his name on the bottom line of a contract with the Saints.

Of course, that's just a sportwriter at NFL.com, but the way he writes it makes me feel like we were the last guy picked in dodgeball.

Also a little worried about his shoulder, considering I've seen it printed in more than one place that its possible he won't be able to throw at all this year.

Nevertheless, he's paid and we have a QB that, if healthy enough to play, is good enough to manage a game and not lose it for us. Long way better than Brooks, so I can't complain too much.

Hope all the hype plays out to be true.
