3-4 years with current team for legit SB run. As far as recipe for success, I think the organization has found it if they stick with it.

You have about 2 - 3 years. Brees is 33 now. And obviously still great. But it can't last forever. People thought Peyton Manning would go on forever too. But these guys come to an end when they get older. Lots of hits plus age accumulate to bring it to an end.

You have lots of great players on that team. But it's not the same without Brees. That's for sure. He's what holds it together. As long as he is young enough and healthy enough you will be good. Beyond that you will rebuild.

I doubt Manning trains or trained as hard as Brees does to keep himself in shape!

When you set out to build a Dynasty, it is a continuous improvement process. The biggest transition will be Brees when that time comes... Until the you have seen the transitions taking place every season and for the most part every transition was an improvement.

People got pissed about Shockey...... Now look at the Graham!
Losing Deuce was difficult to swallow...... I believe we have more than enough talent and depth in our back field.
Receivers are still young...... May lose Coleston soon due to$ but there will be another right behind him.

Other than QB New Orleans is not a one dimensional team in any one area or position of value.

Right now the biggest loss of a player that we have that I can see is Sharper.... They have yet to fill that spot with equal talent.

Well ...... they have yet to replace the Dome Patrol also.

He trains just as hard. Injuries and age are just part of the game. Brees is not exempt from that.

Pretty much right on the money with this statement, Jenkins was advertised as the heir apparent and whilst I'm not ready to throw him under the bus yet, he needs to develop some instincts and make some plays in the passing game.

Yeah right... I think these are actually pretty accurate depictions of his off-season activities:

Pretty accurate depiction of Manning's offseasons too. He took a bad hit and got injured. Can happen to Brees too. He's not immune from that. Brees in fact did get knocked out for the season. It happened earlier in his career. Hes capable of injury too. All NFL QB's are. It's a rough game.
