Mark Brunell will start Sunday for New Orleans Saints; Drew Brees will be third QB
By Nakia Hogan, The Times-Picayune

The New Orleans Saints will start Mark Brunell at quarterback on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, with Drew Brees serving as the team's emergency third quarterback.

The Saints will activate Chase Daniels from the practice squad and he will be Brunell's backup.

The 13-2 Saints have already secured the No. 1 see in the NFC playoffs

Peter King just tweeted that Drew Brees

Peter King just tweeted that Drew Brees

Will be the 3rd string quarterback on Sunday behind Brunell and Daniel.

So much for keeping his start streak alive.

I think the old gun got a few bullets left. Watch Brunell pull it out! And this guarantee Brees gets the pass completion percentage record, right? The other sliver lining, defense needs MAJOR practice playing without a 3 touchdown cushion. It's on you now, D!

I guess everybody has their own opinions about whether or not to sit key players in this last game that has very little meaning other than the morale boost-momentum argument. But put yourself in Sean Payton's shoes for a minute. How dumb would Sean Payton look if this sunday Julius Peppers took Brees down from a blindside hit and crushed his right shoulder? Would you honestly still be in the "momentum camp" and justify Payton's call to go all out in a meaningless game even though it ruined our superbowl chances?
C'mon Man!!

I'm with you. We were in over our heads with a healthy "All Pro" lol Jermon Bushrod protecting Drew's blind side. And Bushrod is not 100%. If they project to be a starter, sit their a** down.

And as I stated in a previous thread. If something were to happen with Brees in a playoff game its better that Brunell has had some playingtime this year to knock some rust off. I don't think you get rusty in 2 weeks but Brunell hasn't really played in 2 years.
