I consider Shaun Hill, Anderson, Kolb and others like them to be backups. Brunell liked to of got Meachem murdered the last game of the season.
one of the main reasons im not concerned and i can only speak for myself, is that over the past few seasons(not including last) drew was the least sacked QB in the league

when he gets hit it usually isnt a hard hit and the rules now prevent you from driving the QB into the ground

unless he gets a non contact injury i cant foresee an injury

having said that, why is brunell's age such a huge factor.....why couldnt he fill in for a few games if drew goes down? we now have a running game and we have some solid starters in jeremy shockey and marques colston for him to throw to

he doesnt have to be an all pro......we have been seriously spoiled by drew's play and there isnt a single backup in the league that could do what drew does......there will always be a drop off.....thats why they are backups

I like Brunell but not as a backup. But this is a HUGE dropoff.

Re: Position Breakdown: Quarterback

It's probably too early in Drew's career to draft his replacement. What we need is a QB like Kolb from Philly. I really liked him when he stood in for McNabb, however I doubt he'll be available. Surely the FO has people looking into a short term experienced QB who can replace Brunell since he didn't play well in clean up.

first off.....brunell played with the second and 3rd team against one of the best pass defenses in the league
secondly.....QBs can be put into a good system like in philly......kolb is talented, but he also has stud receivers, a great pass blocking offensive line, and a talented running back corps

was matt cassell a great QB? no but he was put into a system that worked and forced him to not make mistakes.....he didnt make mistakes and so he was given a starters job in kansas city

same thing with kolb. dude got opportunities to start against 2 of the worst pass defenses in the league and still threw 3 INTs

in 7 career games played he has thrown an INT per game and has only 4 TDs....2 against us and 2 against KC......not exactly pro bowl numbers

Re: Position Breakdown: Quarterback

The Drew Brees FA signing has now surpassed the Reggie White signing as the greatest FA signing in the history of the NFL and possibly of all USA professional sports...

Now is Chase gonna be ready in 3-4 years or do we snag a man now?!?

That pretty much sums it up. Brees is an elite and I hope Daniels can prove himself this upcoming year.
