Trent Dilfer got a ring. Does that mean he's a better QB than Brees, Rivers, McNabb, Moreno, etc? I don't think so.
Well thats your first mistake because the last I check this is a Saints forum not an Eli or Chargers forum. And my point being that the trade seemed to have worked in favor of Eli and the Giants.

This years story has yet to be told but if Eli and Bree's both gets rings... I'll have to ask what the hell is your team doing over there.

Re: Would things have been different if...

I started the Eli vs Rivers crap. Sorry. But yeah in the long run both the Bolts and Saints turned out to have pretty good QBs.

I think that Rivers may just be second to P. Manning in the AFC. Everyone likes to lump Brady in there but at this time I would put Rivers and maybe Carson Palmer above him.

I lived in San Diego and now in LA and Chargers are one of my favorite teams until they hired Norv Turner.

Read the opening post. This was about the Brees/Rivers situation. Brees plays QB for the Saints.

If Brees gets your team a Super Bowl... I'll be happy for him. And I really don't understand your question but it doesn't matter.

This I agree on... I hate Norv but he's been doing good for us lately.

Drew turned this city into believers in one season. We never had so much respect on a field with a qb in a long time. When Drew was in san diego people were scared of the offensive attack. It is the same now for the bolts but not as big as it was when Drew was there. Simply put, Great Move for the Bolts to get a young good talented QB. Perfect Move for Saints for this offense

Very well said.
I though your Sheli/Rivers question was good question.

I think most people in NO and SD agree that it was win/win for both teams.

Re: Would things have been different if...

You merely a troll admit it. The thread is stupid and you and I know it.

Chargers didn't feel Bree's was the guy to get them to wear they wanted to go. "He can't win the big one", it was only a matter of time before Rivers was going to be the starter anyway the injury was just good timing is all.

No. I am not a troll. I came here because I like the Saints (unless their opponents are the Chargers). I've been to NO and been to a few Saints games. They have good class fans (just like the majority of posters in here).

You think the thread is stupid... well speak for yourself! I though it made good discussion but I realize that you and a few others would like to stir the pot and turn it into smack.

Well being that I've been to a few Saints games... I know that the vast majority of their fans are not like you and that's a good thing!!!
You are one of the few bad seeds.
