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.
What'cha talkin bout Willis? This doesn't even make sense. Try drinking a little less next time before you post.

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

I don't care who we go out and sign, there's not a man on the planet (besides Peyton Manning) who could make Drew Brees look over his shoulder. I personally don't think it's a bad thing to bring Delhomme back in as a backup if he understands his role. But Drew Brees is a top 2 QB in the NFL, he's not going to get scared of Delhorrible

Browns sign Delhomme

Jake Delhomme has agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, according to a league source.
Delhomme visited with the Browns on Thursday, but left without a deal. He was scheduled to visit the New Orleans Saints on Friday, but his trip was delayed because his flight was canceled, according to league sources.
Delhomme was released by the Carolina Panthers earlier this month after seven seasons with the team.

Cleveland Browns, Jake Delhomme agree to two-year contract - ESPN

Best of luck to him ... not sure if this is the best option for him.

Thanks Smash for article.

JD,2 yr.deal w/Cleveland at 7 million. Seven million.

Article says his home town team is N.O. Saints.
That should be that JD's home state team is Saints.

his next best option was backing up drew

he'll go to the browns and be a starter for 2 years and then find a new home

you guys forget that just 4 short seasons ago we were also the laughing stock of the NFL

nobody wanted to come here and everybody that did come here got mocked and laughed at by the rest of the fans

the browns have a solid defense.....they have a lot of young talent......they are missing a few key pieces

1 of which is leadership......fujita and delhomme will solve that problem

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.
sure i like what your saying but that daimond in the rough won't help get us to the super bowl if drew goes down and were still in the mix, we still need a seasoned vet that can come in and keep us going till drew gets heathy. and uncle brunell's not the one.

believe it or not......brunell has better numbers than delhomme in his career and he has never had a WR like steve smith

it seems like you guys forget that

brunell has been selected to the pro bowl 3 times.........delhomme only once

brunell has been a pro bowl MVP and has a super bowl ring with us

delhomme has none of that and hasnt been in the system for years

now delhomme is in cleveland and we still have our former 3 time pro bowler as a backup
