I haven't really been happy with the saints since the loss on Sunday so I've just been thinking. If we drafted a QB in the first round and kind of had Drew take him under his wing for two years to teach him the ways of a NFL QB. I think the Saints style of play does not need an Elite QB but rather a "Game manager." It would certainly help our cap issues and I'm sure we could at least get 2 first round picks. This would give us the opportunity to draft players to replace people like Colston, Harper, Vilma, and Smith. Not even to mention build a halfway decent O-line. I know i'll receive hate but it's just an idea, I love Brees with all my heart and I was a fan when we picked him up in free agency but it doesn't seem like he is putting in the work like making Nick Toon better and rather making Wrangler commercials to build up his already monstrous wealth. He was so arrogant when it came to his contract, we asked him to take the Tom Brady way, but instead he held out and took the selfish way out and now he is paying for it and taking sacks at an alarming rate because we have no money to pay for better lineman. What do you guys think?
Yeah, ask the oilers how trading Gretzky went. This is so silly. Spoiled we are. No clue what we have at that position. I'll remind those with short memories, this was the man that completed more than 70% of his passes in a season. Who the other night against Dallas completed 19 passes in a row. Go around the NFL and go watch some other QB's. Then come back and watch drew, yeah it is the system, not Drew. Utter BS and absurd. Good lord the fans who do not recognize we have a hall of famer playing that position. One of the best ever!

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

No way, no how. Drew is still performing at the highest level with great vision, arm strength, and accuracy. Replacing Drew (although several years away, barring catastophe) will be almost impossible.
I vote for keep him until he is ready to retire and then make him offensive coordinator.

"GAME MANAGER" - YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND!

Those type QB's are for teams who has no one better is all. WE need a highly proficient passing QB. I am all for trading him don't get me wrong but I have to have at least 2 first round picks and a 2 and 3.
