Re: Drew Brees, Saints running out of chances for championship glory

His days ARE numbered. I'm confident he's got 2 more years at his lofty current-ness. He might play 2 or 3 more beyond that at a more than acceptable level, but his shortcomings will be clear.

We don't need to draft anybody to replace him. Toon takes over for Colston, lets add some Linebacking, but priority #1, in my humble opinion, considering what I believe to be true about Drew, must be to fix the oline interior, which is doable right now.

Regardless of what we do or do not do on defense, if we fix the oline we are once again a dangerous team - we must break the bank to do it if that's what it takes.

That's not much of an increase considering the pressure he's been under.
Two of the losses, he threw 3 in each and we won those games. Poor OL, drops, inexperienced receivers...he had a good season considering the situation. Funny thing, he threw some great deep passes when his arm strength was in question early on. I would even say if the int's are cut in half we still miss the playoffs.

The chance is already gone. To many holes to fill on this team. Overpaid players, not enough good coaches. We all can see this, draft picks not playing up to the hype, or what we hoped they could contribute. I just can't see us fixing this any time soon.

Agree! The sky is NOT falling and things are rarely as bad as they seem.
Fix the OL and I believe those close losses we suffered this season turn into W's. Also, if we can get some pressure up front then our backfield should be better as well. WHO DAT!!!

Nah! We've got a few good years left in Drew. Just fix the O-line and we're good to go.

Re: Drew Brees, Saints running out of chances for championship glory

the saints have steadily given up more sacks each and ever year.
that always means more hits and so called hurries

since 2008 13

20, 25, 24, 26, 37, 29

he has been getting hammered.

hearing foot steps?
pressing things?

easy to say yes to both

why is it the highest cap figure on the team does not get what he needs to get the job done. the saints keep trying to pull wabbits out the hat each and ever year for the OL. all we are getting is skunks.

get serious and give Drew a chance.

as Drew goes so do the saints

By any comparison Brees is a Top 5 QB and he is light years better than any other QB that has EVER played in the NFC South.

I wonder who some of these posters are in here. Oh what was that about having no pressure with his third pic. Not all interceptions are a QBs fault. Every QB throws interceptions at some point that was the fault of the receiver or the defense. And he likely HAD NO ONE OPEN. If you have no none to throw to, its hard to make a play.

Tom Brady can play until he's in his 40s.
