It worked out great for both sides. One thing I'd like to say... Drew Brees might not have became the Drew Brees he is now if he stayed in San Diego. Our offense was catered to allow him to be the player he is now... I don't think that would have happened over there.
Well yeah. If they would have put Brees up for trade after the 2003 season, they might have got a sandwich for him. There was no way you could predict that he would have that break out season in 2004.

Had he stayed in San Diego, he'd still be successful. Then you guys might have ended up with Rivers... but you would have had to make a trade.

I don't know if the Saints would have drafted a QB in the early round though. Possibly Kurt Warner in a Saints uni??? Hmmm...

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.
You know what. We will have to judge, in a few years, how Eli, Brees, and Rivers have done with their respective teams.

I personally believe that Rivers will lead the Bolts to the AFC Championship and Super Bowl this season. With their big receivers, LT coming on again, and the defense, I think San Diego will take out Peyton and the Colts again.
