Weren't we something like 6-1 when Blake went down? I don't think you can give him credit for the winning season...but the playoff win I will concede. Not enough to be annointed savior and paid a king's ransom, IMO.

What????? Do you really think Drew needs to look over his shoulder no matter who his backup is? Come on. We need a good backup and he IS a good backup.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

I would be more comfortable with Jake as our #2 than Brunell...who just played like #2.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

I agree. Drew Brees doesn't strike me as the kind of guy that does anything but look straight ahead. All you have to do is look back at how he handled Phillip Rivers. He basically made him wear a baseball cap for a couple of years. Rivers would still be holding that clipboard if Brees had never left.

Better backup than Brunell. Hope it works out.

Anyone that watched Carolina saw Jakie-poo do that to poor Steve Smith all year long. Jake is not a better option.

How would you describe Jake's play last year? I think #2 is a fair description, and Jake played like #2 with starters.

I sort of agree with what you are saying, but remember one thing. Steve Smith is the only receiving threat the Panthers have. Muhammad, although fairly serviceable at his age, still wasn't the answer for them as a #2 receiver. Jarrett was hit or miss. Mostly miss. Their tight ends leave a lot to be desired. In Jake's defense, he was trying to force a lot of passes to the only playmaker the team has in the receiving corps. Not to say that he didn't have a bad season, because he truly did. I just think there is more to it than that. It kind of reminds me of the Browns QB situation, but they have absolutely ZERO playmakers on offense and no offensive line and that makes Anderson and Quinn look drastically worse statistically.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

It is my opinion that Brunell would have been worse. But given the choice between two plates of poo, I guess I would have to go with the fresher plate.
