Worse part of that scenario would be the Saints moving to LA.

I would have to find something else to do with my weekends because I would/will stop watching football if the Saints ever leave Lousiana!!

Funny part about that is he says they still wouldn't have won a championship, and right now they still need a qb !!!

We would have been fine. Payton had a rep for getting the most out of his QB's and I think we'd have found someone capable of succeeding. Probably a mid-upper tier QB like a Romo (who Payton wanted here) or a Freeman/Ryan type.

I think too many people short-change Payton in the Payton-Brees combination. Brees was a very good, but not elite QB before he teamed up with Payton.

That N'if'L stuff is pretty silly but quite fun.

You made the point I was going to make before I read your post. Cam Cameron / Drew Brees would without question, have yielded a much less fruitful career for Brees. Payton has done so much for Drew's career, I think anyone would agree with this, especially Drew.

it's comical, yet somehow depressing; "if" that were to have happened.

i think drew was starting to get respect before his shoulder injury. not top tier but up there. he was on his way to a great career with or without payton. my take anyway.

I'm convinced that if Brees went to Miami we would not have even seen the SuperBowl.
