Confession time: Who here wanted Culpepper?
I have to humbly admit that I was one of those who wanted Culpepper over Brees. I thought Culpepper had a better chance of recovering from injury than Brees did and had seen him torch our defense many times. Thank God the FO doesnt listen to me. That could have been a disaster.

That's brave of you to admit. I was all for signing Brees. During Brooks' last couple of seasons I started every Madden franchise by trading for Brees or sometimes Phillip Rivers, just because he could be had for less. NEVER CULPEPPER!

Never in a million years. Never.

There have been some crap players I have petitioned for over the years but Culpepper was not one of them.

I have to admit that I wanted Fourcade over Hebert and Walsh. When they traded for Walsh, I was pretty upset. When they started him after only being here a week or so, I called the Jim Mora show after a loss and told Mora he was an so many words.

I can remember some heated debate about the Brees signing. Quite a few people were skeptical his shoulder would hold up. Not this guy! I also thought Matt Leinart was a safe pick that year. So, you win some, you lose some.

I definitely wanted Brees. As soon as I found out he was going to be a free agent, I crossed my fingers that the Saints would sign him.
I never really cared much for Culpepper. I thought Brees had the better skills. I had Brees on a couple fantasy teams, back when he was in San Diego.

I wanted the Saints to get him over Brees, and I'm not embarrassed to admit it.

My opinion was skewed because I rarely watched any Chargers' games, but I watched all Vikings' games, so I had no idea how great Brees could be if the surgery went successfully.
