Pretty sure Lilito is our future center....and I'm fine with that.

RGIII, no freaking way. If the Saints want to roll the dice on damaged goods then go Sam Bradford.

Re: Saints thinking about life after Drew Brees

Looks like Brees read the article today and wasn't happy about it

5 TD's on the road, outdoors, against a good defense.

Let's be more like the patriots.....If you pricey your gone! If you want to win stay and be affordable. Pay the leader (Drew of course) and work it out with the new guys.


WHO DAT??!?!??!!

Re: Saints thinking about life after Drew Brees

Saints receivers not named Graham should like it...

Well, guess Brees got the message to get his head out of his arse...

He's lossed that eye of the tiger - he better get it back...

Re: Saints thinking about life after Drew Brees

The Drew I saw today could play 3 or 4 more years easily.

Amazing what a little protection can do for a QB.

Re: Saints thinking about life after Drew Brees

If we don't use our first two picks on defensive players, we'll be in even more trouble next season.
That being said, there are a lot of "intriguing" QB prospects in this draft.
You'll hear people fawning over Mariota, Winston, Hundley, Prescott, even Petty...
They are all spread QBs and we don't want any of them.
The guys we want are the less heralded QBs from "pro style offenses.
Mannion, Carden, Grayson...
Guys that will be there in the third round.
That being said, I really like Ryan Griffin.
The look he had on his face when he destroyed the field in that "Saints Ice Bucket Challenge video," told me everything I need to know about him.

The weather is always 72 degrees and perfect, in the Dome

Re: Saints thinking about life after Drew Brees

Nice leak to Rappaport by the Saints front office to signal to Brees his last 2 seasons are about to be renegotiated into a 3 or 4 year deal for reasonable cap money. In my opinion, investment in Brees was a no-brainer. Every super pay player, Payton Manning included, has their contract chipped away over time - organizations simply cannot pay them in full and keep the organization afloat with personnel.

As for mistakes: front office paying Jarius Byrd "Jimmy Graham" money considering Byrd was injured last season was the biggest mistake this front office has made in a long time - especially since it cost us Sproles and apparently two core safeties to make-way. However funky our defense was last season, it worked. It works less well by a mile this year.

This is all posturing for a re-negotiation, which I believe will happen and will free money for free-agency. I just don't think we have the draft position or picks to draft that high without selling out the entire draft "Rickey Williams" style which brings us back to killing our draft for a few years to come.
