Re: Jump on the Brees' fault bandwagon

I don't agree with the "rebuilding" part, because the core of this team is solid as it is and that core is also sustainable.

So, it's more of a matter of "re-tooling" and finding players that suit the system, whether we are talking about the offense or the defense. Those players don't necessarily have to be highly paid FAs, just players who do their part and fit the system the Saints have already established.

I think the draft will be a very important determinant as to how next year's team is going to shape up, and they really need to hit on most of their picks, and hopefully they'll even get that 2nd round pick back.

Also, I think you forgot to mention that Bushrod will be an UFA, and I don't think they'll be bringing him back - at least with the current salary - so he'll probably be replaced by a cheaper player.

I would try and hang on to Hawthorne, because he is a really good LB, but he has had a difficult pre-season/season with the injuries which have reflected on to his contribution to the active roster. He was a really good catch last offseason, and he'll be an important contributor come next season if he can remain healthy - of which I have no doubt that he can.

Yeah you're right -- all the dude does is just show up and throw his touchdown pass. Let's keep it real...he is throwing 2.8 TDs per game, not ONE. Clearly the top 5 QB in their top 10 offense is to blame for the Saints record this year. /FAIL

I really missed the part where Alaska, or anyone else for that matter, made that statement.

In chronological order.

The fact we went 0-4 this season was pretty sad.

Then....

Re: Jump on the Brees' fault bandwagon

A lot of you are going to be damn tired..... If you jump on the hate wagon when Brees is blamed for a loss then you most certainly would have to jump on the love wagon when he is the reason we win?

Brees brings the team to an advantage every game. He can't operate under constant pressure which Frisco brought to the table. I can't imagine the game result with Chase calling the signals. Who Dat!

Re: Jump on the Brees' fault bandwagon

Brees threads the needle with his passes more times than not. Sometimes he is going to be intercepted trying to. I don't fault him. If the pass was successful and we went down and scored before half, we all would have been on cloud 9. That's the game.

In scholastic sports that is very true. When you are looking at a profit based business where the least valuable team is worth 800mm and the lowest revenue is 200mm/year... almost, good try, at least we had fun, does not cut it. ROI is expected now.

OK. You're 100% right there. Alaska said he was was CONSISTENTLY only good for showing up and throwing his one TD pass per game (the streak). I don't see much inconsistency in those numbers -- they are on a par with anything else in Brees' past career, and he is consistently throwing more than one TD pass a game. Alaska wanted to "get real." So I did by looking at his numbers. My bad.

I guess I just disagree, and I think he is consistently good for a lot more than just those two things that Alaska mentioned. I'm not burning with jealousy for some other QB on one of the other 31 teams right now.

The total DOLT Ben Roethlisburger gets Super Bowl repeats, for Christ's sake.

Love me some #9, but all this Superman shat is fantasy. When he stinks one up, he really stinks it up.

Really, the only thing he does CONSISTENTLY is start and throw at least ONE TD per game.

Again; LOVE me some Drew. But let's keep it real.

Alaska
Before you go off on a tangent let me stop you, Because there ain't no way in hell im giving up Brees for I probably can go straight away and say half the qbs in the league right now. It's no way you take down Saints passing records, NFL Records and assault teams with Alex Smith as your qb and and a so - so defense.

Here's what I do agree with you on.......
Jason Whitlock wrote a column before last year's playoff game. I wish I could find it. It seems like the 49ers read it and figured it out. The premise to the whole article was that once or twice a game be it because of his height, or pressure, or just focus loss Drew Brees will get inconsisent and give you an errant throw. So to the sucks it up thing.... It actually happens once or twice a game.
