It ties together if Brees gets injured for a couple of games or the rest of the season. Want to take a guess on who becomes the starter? If you guessed Brunell, you get another miniature trophy to add to your collection. My point I have been trying to make all along is that I wouldn't feel comfortable about Brunell starting if something happened to Brees and he had to miss x-amount of time. I do not feel that he could come in and win games with his arm. That is my OPINION.

Re: Back-up QB options?

Having a good backup QB that can fill in for an injured starter is like having a spare tire for your car. You're probably not gonna use it much and you hope like heck you don't need it. But if you don't have one it's likely to bite you eventually.

PTI...but this is what happens when you win the SB. No debating the starter, so we are relegated to arguing who the back-up should be. Ain't it great?

It doesn't tie together. If a guy grades as a starter he gets starter money. Backups get backup money. Look at who the backup is on other teams. Mark Brunell is plenty smart and he's been in the system for a while. What's the better option? And can't we at least agree that there are bigger needs on the team? Cause if Brees goes down we're in trouble, and I don't care who the #2 guy is...
