Screw draft pick positioning. Assuming the facist Commissioner doesn't take ours, we'll not do a lot with it anyway.

Loomis/Payton's drafting expertise is inversely proportional to the pick # - lots of great later round picks and some first rounders that seem to underachieve...

Seen the hits he is taking this year compared to the past few years? He's not exactly the size of Cam Newton and will not hold up to that as well the older he gets.

Name an instance where Brees has had to leave the game cause of sacks? stop panicking cause of this game, it's not like this ONE loss is what's keeping us out of the post season! Losing to the chiefs, panthers and red skins hurt us pretty ****ing bad.
Sean Payton will make things just dandy, you'll see!

So let me get this straight -- in addition to projecting your gloomy mood tonight onto the next four years of Saints football, you are also worrying about hits on Brees that have not happened yet. OK.

I'm not giving up on this season. 9-7 is totally doable. Our guys have 10 days to get their minds right and get ready for New York. We may not make the playoffs, but the season isn't a total waste because of one game.

Sorry, guess I should have a beer and celebrate...

I've seen Brees getting clocked a lot more this year than the past 3 seasons. I also remember a game where someone fell on his throwing shoulder on a 3rd down and he went to the sidelines and had to work the kinks out.

All I'm trying to say is that the offensive line is not cutting it lately and he is taking a lot more hits than normal. That adds up - ask Peyton Manning, Big Ben and a host of others who are bigger built QBs than Drew.

Sure he can have another 10 Pro Bowl seasons - IF he gets the protection...
