If this is another attempt for the Saints to keep Brooks around longer while we have a young QB ready to take over because of his lack of leadership I am highly upset... J.T. was looking solid in preseason. I know he was young and had his moments, but with another year under his belt he would have been a solid #2 and still only 25. Bouman is 32 and not getting any younger... Someone want to tell me what the hell we were thinking here? Now we have upgraded a secondary that did need it, but giving up a young promising QB... I dont like this trade at all...

We all knew if we going to get MM we were going to have to give up a solid player. I liked JT too. I am surprised we got a conditional 2nd back from the packers. That sounds strange.
It might be conditional on the basis if he doesn\'t sign we get their 2nd.

We got something for JT. We totally blew it regarding Jake Delhomme.

You may or may not think McKenzie is a good addition to the team, but to say that we\'ve really lost anything by trading O\'Sullivan is laughable. It is especially so when you spin it with the thought that this is some sort of an attempt to keep AB around longer.
:casstet:

Adding McKenzie may help, but until we get a new set of coordinators things will not be any different.

I miss read that we got a second rounder back which is good for a young unproven QB.

I know I said JT was solid in preseason which isnt 100% true. He is still a backup and if you looked at his numbers he played ok. Same as he did last year when he had the best QB rating in preseason. With more tyme I think he would have developed into a solid QB.

I just think that Brooks has been given way to many chances and we have let go of some solid QBs to keep him around. Jake Delhomme, Marc Bulger, and now JT... It might be another loss for us.

MM will help the secondary yes, but at the same tyme what kinda difference will it make? Can he stop the run? Can he score us some points on Offense? Like every keeps saying its not the players its the play calling... Coordinators need to go!

It looks like Green Bay has their QB of the future. I really like JT and hope he does well for the Pack. I really hate seeing the Saints trading this kid...

Hopefully, MM will help the secondary at some point. I am not sold on him, but he should help. I agree that the bigger issue is the coaching staff...

Watching JT in the European league this past season I kept thinking he looked/played a lot like a young Brett Favre. I never thought he might be his future replacement, though.

I like the trade. I dont care if its Haslett or another coaching staff nobody will sit Brooks for O Sullivan. We got needed secondary help, and what does it cost? I trade a backup for a needed starter everyday of the week. As far as O Sullivan being Farve\'s future replacement, hes done nothing on the field to prove hes good enough to play in this league. They said Couch was his future replacement too.
