Xan, I am in agreement with your analysis, other than which quarterback to take in the draft but that has been debated elsewhere. If Brees can start great, go get em, but if he can't go (and and I don't know of any in recent memory that have had this surgery and where as productive comming back as they where before), then there better be a quality backup and not a one year stop gap journeyman there to fill his jock.

It's all too likely that Brees won't be ready or that he won't pan out simply based on the type of injury. I watched Chad Pennington get injured the first time, then get reinjured worse the second time, and Brees was injured worse than Pennington
No xan, you're way off. Pennington completely tore his rotator cuff and his labrum. That's a HUGE injury, and one that not many people can bounce back from. A rotator cuff really affects the shoulder on a long-term basis and never quite heals all the way. Brees tore his labrum, and had a miniscule tear of the rotator cuff which was fixed with minor surgery (Pennington had to have major surgery on his rotator cuff). The labrum injury, although it's not something that can just be brushed off, is not nearly as serious as the rotator cuff. People can return from that injury in months as opposed to years with a rotator cuff injury. Pennington's injury was completely different from Brees'. You have a right to be scared about Brees' injury, but don't think that it's something like Pennington's injury, because it's not. Besides, we have way too many other holes on this team to draft a QB with the #2 pick, especially when Payton is planning on picking up a vet backup QB later.

picking a qb with the second pick is a bad idea, its too late for that, picking up a qb with that pick shows lack of faith in brees, and thats not a good look mr. benson is tryin to present to the city of new orleans and all saints fans..........my opinion, im just one guy a great one but just one guy

I'm sitting on a turd that's got a better chance of winding up on a football field before AMac starts, he's not going to be ready for 2-3 years.



And you know this how?

I've got a talented turd.

Ahhhh, yes. The classic question dodge. Gearing up for an election in November?

Edit: Oh, and my turd is better than your turd. It can pilot jets. It's currently flying a secret mission over N. Korea.

Is your turd President? Mine scored too high on the Wonderlich to qualify as a Republican candidate.

I didn't see either MRI's to determine which was worse. I was only going on reports to the media and I didn't happen to see "miniscule", but you know better.... The only true way of telling how bad Brees' shoulder is to see him throw. Which we really won't until LATE July, too late for my blood to find a quality replacement.

Lmaoooo wtf is up with the turd stuff....... Anyways you would have to be stupid to compare Penningtons injury to Brees Penningtons was really bad and had to have major surgery and to say brees will be a bust makes you even more a moron and to say his line was great bwhahahahahahaha then you have the Brooks lovers still gah get over it he is gone and he is not the answer and yes Brees is our answer ppl say ah 2 more years left in him WTF !!! he is 27 geeeeshshshshs ppl give him a chance, we havent even seen him on the field yet......

Bet he dosent smile and laugh after he makes an interception! thats what i will be happy about no more Brooks YESSS!!! for the raider fans i feel bad 4 them........

Ok....I thought we agreed to drop the Brooks ordeal.
I don't think one has to be a Brooks fan to simply state that a crappy OL affects QB performance. Its just common sense. With that said....from a psychological standpoint....I feel Brees would simply be more comfortable if we picked up a stud or 2 for our OL. I mean the guy is still human and I'm sure even if it is to the tiniest extent that his injury will weigh on his mind. As far as the backup scenario....I think it is about damn time we figured out if Amac can handle it or not! I remember all the hype surrounding him and how good he is and how he was only affected by his FSU incident. Really? FINE...SHOW ME THE GOODS!!!!

BINGO!!

Look I'm no doctor and I've never gone through the injury if any one has and was a quarterback on this board please speak up. Until then I've never heard a player state that they would not be ready to go, and there always ahead of schedule. When Brees was signed I said Uhno to much money if he can't play, but when you look at the contract, if he can't play or has lost "it" then the team is only hit for one year, this season. Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket, ya I'm sure a "veteren free agent QB" is the solution. That's been the solution over the past three years. Give me a break.

Xan has a point, and a good one at that. I think there will be a backup plan and there needs to be. Until he is throwing the ball we will not know, no will Drew by that matter, but by then it could very well be too late to do anything about it.

Every year players go down with injury and don't return to form, so you just don't know what you have until he's on the field. Sure the mental part of his game should be there, but if the arm doesn't work you need a backup plan that can carry you through the season and into the future. And Brees being a competditor should understand that (Come on everyone feels that Delhome was released because Brooks couldn't deal with the pressure of a viable backup).

The reality is that the team is in a good situation to draft or trade and then draft players that will help this team succeed. But those of you who can say that we have Brees the position is locked should not be living in lala land. I hope he can come back and play to a high level but if he can't then what's your solution to the problem for this season and the future? Because if you look at the jets, they had none. (well feidler but he was knocked out 9 plays later)
