OK...I have never been a fan of Drew the person, and I am sure there are people scratching their heads and thinking, "WTF is wrong with this guy?"...but it is nothing personal.

Talent-wise, he has been great, no doubt. However, he is getting old. If I honestly answer the question, then, yeah...I'd trade for someone else right now.

If you would have asked this question right after the SB win, I'm sure my answer would have been different.

Edit...Oh, yeah...one more thing. I am wondering if it is a coinkydink that people around Drew are not playing as well as before, or do they either consciously or sub-consciously do poorly because they resent how greedy he got in the offseason. Just fodder for thought.
Pretty conflicting statement. Not a fan of him personally but it isn't personal?

Do you even know him personally to have an opinion?

RGIII? Luck? ROFLMAO

Had to edit that...sorry

I clearly state that although I don't care for his personality (better?)...it is not the reason I would trade. It is because he is getting older and there is some great talent just coming into the game. Indy took a pass on Peyton for Luck...so I'm not that far off base.

Edit...again. Sometimes I think you just read what you want to read and often miss the point because you have your head so far up Drew's butt. Think about it.

I'll bet anything, rgIII or luck, won't have the career Brees has had. Wouldn't trade him for anyone.

I think most players realize the value of Brees to this franchise, so I dont see that as an issue. Peyton and Vick were the highest paid players in the league, and their teams did fine. OTOH: Brady took a pay cut so the Pats could get more talent around him, and they've been scorching ds for a long long time.

I honestly didnt see Brees being held scoreless by anyone this season, so thats a testament to the faith I have in the man.

Re: Worst Game Ever for Brees.

The big problem here is that we as Saints fans have been spoiled for the last 6 years. The fans that do not have short term memories remember how bad we sucked ass at the QB position is the past.

I'll be the first to admit that Brees had a horrible game but I will never forget what he has done for this team, the entire Who Dat nation, and his relentlessness at getting better every day.

If your thinking about jumping his ass for a couple of bad games, just think of a guy like Billy Joe Tolliver and his era at QB. It could be a lot worse.

Im ready to see what the teams plans are for beyond Drew. He is probably going to retire at the end of his current contract and the only back up we have is Chase Daniel. I feel like he probably would have done as good of a job this season if not better if he were given a chance. Also he wouldn't have cost the team as much money which would have allowed them more room to pick up some free agents they needed. I am thinking theyn will be looking at drafting a QB some time soon in order to keep the franchise alive. I wonder if Nate or Nick Montana will be available?

Re: Worst Game Ever for Brees.

It was kind of a bad game. But it's just 1 game. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Unusual for him.

LB !!!! Hey, here I am. Yes, I am so glad you raised the question. (The question was, I wonder how many of these "Hou-Dats would become Texans fans, if the Texans start winning?" from a thread last year. )

I have your answer. While the Texans were marching to 11-1 last Sunday, I, Skymike, was .....

.... watching a recording of Horrible Bosses. I had no idea who won, or what
the score was, until the highlights came on Sunday night. I dont have a single piece of Texans gear, even amongst the "Texans fever" raging through the city now. (They're still pretty sad compared to us.)

Im wearing a Saints "divisional championship" t-shirt as I type this, drawing the usual office ridicule.

If the Texans win the SB, I still wont care about them.
Im a Saints Fan.
Everyone who knows me, plus a million radio listeners, knows it.
