So no this conversation doesn't need to be had... it's silly
The only thing thats going to get him out of his slump is SP.

To suggest tanking the rest of the season is just idiotic and by suggesting to sit Drew, that is exactly what we would be doing. You never quit! You play with pride and you play to win. The post season is more than likely out of reach but you NEVER quit.

Re: The conversation that must be had

If anything, I say bench him earlier and put in Chase in games that are insane blowouts when we're WINNING, like the Raiders or the past two times we've pummeled the Giants. But take him out of a game that can still be won, or out of a season that isn't over yet? Yikes.

I mean not to be overly melodramatic but it's football. It's like doctors and nurses in the ER. You have that heart attack patient on the table, he's slipping away, you do EVERYTHING to keep him alive, everything you can think of, even things you know probably won't work, but you don't quit. You don't see a doctor just walk away ten minutes before the guy is actually dead, and stop trying stuff that might still work. I mean yeah, the doctor and everyone in the room may know that the poor guy is not gonna make it, but you still have to do your job.

Re: The conversation that must be had

I can think of a few people I'd sit, based on performance, and Drew is NOT one of them.

We pay the man to play football, and that's just what he should do, and will do.

Re: The conversation that must be had

Your guys' O line is not that bad. If this was like the O lines in Philly or Arizona then by all means sit him down. Brees is a competitor & I wouldn't think he would want to sit. Plus, on the up side whatever rookie or seldom used receivers could get work in game conditions in preparation for next year. Remember when Colston went down in opener vs. Packers last year? (was on my fantasy team & killed me LOL). Experience from this year's last 4 games could pay dividends for next season.

No ! Thats all i have to say NO ! You don't sit Drew Brees down. First he'd never let it happen.

Once we are out of the playoff picture for sure (should that actually mathematically happen) then let Brees play three and Chase finish for the end of the season games.

You don't sit Brees, you run the ball more to see what RB's you want to keep and the one you might want to trade next year.

Play the man. If we are losing put in Daniels late. If we are winning put Daniels in late.

Re: The conversation that must be had

I can understand what you're saying. I even made this same comment in a different thread. If we did that, it would give us a better opportunity to get Chase some time and then we could possibly tender him at a 2nd round rate and recoup our second round pick. Additionally, it would be a slap in the face of roger goodell and the NFL that we refuse to risk our best player in meaningless games now that goodells attempts to destroy our team and our chances this year have taken their final toll so let them eat scraps. I also understand that the fans would feel slighted but were I a season ticket holder, I would not feel that way and I don't think our team would feel that way either. It would be like telling goodell to go screw himself so I would still support my team and still go to the games and still cheer my team and support their decision because I understand why they were doing that. But there's another side of me that refuses to lose, that does not yield, that doesn't concede a victory, but this is not war, no one's life is on the line so I'm torn on this issue.
