That draft still has me puzzled to this day, no idea how Deuce McAllister lasted until the 23rd selection. Great pick for the Saints in the 1st round, the rest of the Saints draft that year, whatever...

I loved Deuce, but to think we could have had Brees all that time is crazy...

I like the way things turned out. Too bad we couldn't have had Payton since 2001.

Geez Shaun Rogers has been in the league 10 years? It doesn't like but a few years ago he was a star with the Longhorns.

Yeah, you give Jim Haslett Drew Brees, he would have alienated him and sent him packing in 4 years and we never would have seen him again.

We had Marc Bulger and he wasn't good enough...

Jake Delhomme couldn't hold Aaron Brooks jock...

Leroi Glover, he was washed up...

Mark Fields, let the Rams have 'em...

Willie Roaf, ah let the Chiefs have the old man...

Kyle Turley, we DON'T want you protecting the QB...

Finally, the Redskins got wise...morons
