Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

Thanks Pap Voodoo for explaining that for me.
I was trying to figure it out and it seemed the 2nd proved to be a real starter from your list there.

Saintsfan I agree.
You are only as good as your last year.
This is the BUSINESS of NFL and not a popularity contest.

Saint LB, sorry I offended you by saying Saint Archie Manning was what he was which was an average QB.
I like and respect Archie and Olivia Manning and their three sons.
I think they are of character in hopw they live their lives with some privacy and dignity . I did think it was awful when Eli pouted like a whiny baby and refused anything SD out in front inpublic in the draft. That was not classy. He should have smilied, put on the SD stuff while his dad,agents,lawyers worked behing the scenes to get him out of that.
AM was average.

SoI agree withb Joanie in that the Saints need a 2nd QB who wants to be here.

JD is here. Checking . Leaving no team unchecked as he looks for any other team. I predict the Saints are not buying him and that is fine.
Do you how many millions it would cost for 35 yr. old JD to be here?
He is not looking for a 6 figure pay, LOL!

JD, Good God No!! I htink we are posting over nothing because JD is not coming here. He was a 10 million or so pay and a starting position.
Burnell is too old.
JD will be too old and Drew is not going to be Saints QB forever. Two-three more years, who will the Saints have after Brees? Nobody.

Saints need a young , diamond -in-rough QB who they can mold and buy at a low cost. Saints scouts ,I predict , are looking for just that.
Find a Brees part 2.

The guy threw 8 touchdowns last year. He threw EIGHTEEN interceptions. EIGHTEEN. His rating for last year was 59.4. FIFTY-NINE-POINT-FOUR. In his last two seasons he has thrown 30 Interceptions. THIRTY INTERCEPTIONS.

Besides his local roots, can someone look at those numbers and kindly explain to me why we'd want him to do anything for the Saints? We might sign him as the waterboy, but the cheerleaders would intercept him and drink up all the gatoraid before he got to the players.

I understand what you are saying Saintfan, but many people see him as he once was and they love the feel good story of Breaux Bridge Boy just like we Booby Hebert( Bob-bay A-bear) and John Fourcade (John Fo-cade).
Both LA boys were ok at QB and were decent people from what I remember off the field.
Fan feel good and comfort does not make a good team of players.

Oh...I can do that, too. Watch here...

Drew Brees is an average QB. Doesn't make it true...but I can say anything I want...just as you can.

Archie was taller than Drew Brees, could run faster, could throw farther, could avoid sacks better...he just didn't ever play on a team with a fraction of the talent Drew plays with, or a coach with a fraction of the genius SP has.

I am not taking away from Drew, because he is great, and I'm sure there are things Drew is better at. However, to say a 2 time pro-bowler and conference MVP is average is knd of a stretch to me..

You might as well go ahead and say that Peyton and Eli are average, too. There is no doubt in my mind that Archie was every bit the athlete either of those two are. Actually, IMO, he was much better than either from a pure talent and athleticism standpoint.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints (Cleveland signs Jake)

Ok, whatever way you want to say what you want.
We do not agree.

You say AM was a great QB, but played on a sucky team, well then ,all of the Saints on AM's team were great players then, but just played on a sucky team.
I will use your logic.
So I say Bobby Hebert was an average QB and the offense was ok, but he played with a great defensive line?Huh?
Morten Anderson was not one of the leagues best kickers, but just had a great holder, great snaps.


AM, BH, JF, JD, Saints fans of LA lovelove the Louisiana boy or nearby state(MS) in the QB position if they can get him.
We have had this and have not gone far but it was a nice feeling of comfort.
After Brees, who will be N.O. QB? Who will be his second string QB now?
It could a St.Bernard dog to me if he could play,LOL!
It could be one from a small college far away. You could have a Black guy. Maybe a Hispanic American like Marc Sanchez.
Doesn't mater to means long as he can play.
Saints fans have been there from season 1-15 to seasons 8-8 and we really thought that was wonderful, and seasons 9-7,well, that was a winning season.
SB was a dream come true.
Next year, it may or may not happen.
The NFL, you could have in Playoffs as contenders Dallas, NY Jets, Steelers,Texans, who knows.
I just want this current team, who is left, and coaches atafff to stay up there.
I just want the Saints from here on, after this current team and current coaching staff leaves/retires, just to stay at 8-8 at least. I never want to see the Saints go back to the real sad years.
If they would, I would still be a Saints fan.

Ya'll so funny about JD's flight being intercepted,stuff.
I really he would be a bad choice and that this is not going to materalize anyway.
Not even close.
JD is just checking all teams to decide.
