Long progression to get to the top but look what happens with some guys like RG3, Wilson, among others sometimes you go to the right team and if you have "IT" you dont toll in the trenches. Hom much better would Brees be if he was 6Ft 5in ?

Matt Flynn: Announced Starter Oakland 2013 after Four Years in GB and One in Oakland. Flynn has had one 'elite' game in Green Bay, but was passed over in Seattle and is now the franchise qb in Oakland.

The typical grooming period when a quarterback is not thrust into the starting role due to injury/ticket sales/job security is approximately three years...

Re: Saints UDFA Ryan Griffin the QB of the Future

I'm not going to get into the whole who will replace Drew Brees thing...
Because I don't think we'll get that type of player again ever. I'm going to enjoy what he has left.

P.S. I also feel sorry for the poor sob that does have to replace him

Link or opinion?

I look at the top 10 QB's in this league and nearly every one started year 1 or 2.

5 years is way too long.

Re: Saints UDFA Ryan Griffin the QB of the Future

Great QBs normally become starters out of necessity. Rarely are the Smiths booted out for the Kaeperniks, and rarely are they groomed to become elite. Sitting the bench behind a great provides little value beyond the first year. No one knows if a QB will be great until after they have been great for a few seasons.

They are either:
Drafted to start
Starter retires
Starter has career ending injury

Re: Saints UDFA Ryan Griffin the QB of the Future

Let me start off by saying I love Brees, now I do not see him playing with being high effectively over another 3 years( I know, bash away) so why not groom this rookie to be a starter(keep in mind he may never live up to Brees) but if he can win games on a consistant level and plays well he has my vote. Who knows it possibly could end up like Brady got his start, you never know?!!

Let Payton and Loomis worry about Brees' replacement and when its time to find the poor sob.

I already don't like the guy because he isn't Brees!

Re: Saints UDFA Ryan Griffin the QB of the Future

Brady is 35 and Manning is 37. Both of those guys are still doing fine. Barring injury, Drew should remain really good for the duration of his contract (goes through the 2016 season, I think).

I think the Saints have at least two or three seasons before they need to worry about it (of course an injury can happen on any play). It does make you realize that the time is in the next two or three seasons for the Saints to try to make another run (or two!).

I bet the Packers thought the same after Favre retired. Or the 49ers after Montana...
