I look forward to him starting the moment he's better than Brees.

Spot on boss. I also think as fans we have to be realistic in our expectations, and realize we are not asking him to start this year. He's got a shoot ton to learn and IMHO there is no greater learning curve for a position in all of football. Although that may make me captain obvious. Seriously though, temper expectations, keep them realistic, and let's give him a chance. We are going to learn fairly quickly if he has what it takes or not.

Oh, and a nice little effect of this, Drew will be even more dialed in this year. There is a competitor in town, and no one out competes Drew Brees.

The grooming thing is a myth. Example, Payton Manning had lots of QB's under him in Indy. They drafted Luck so fail. Many more examples of the grooming thing not materializing. He'll learn some things, but Brees is not prepping him or spending that much time teaching. Like the man said, keep the backup off the field.

I don't think someone like Drew could get tired of questions, he's been in Garrets position before as a young player and knows what it takes to succeed

Drew is the first player at the facility and the last to leave, let's hope Garret adopts the same work ethic because he has all the physical traits to be successful.

Drew is going to help him...some. He's not going to groom him to take his place. He has stated many times, he aims to keep backups off the field.

If you want to keep someone off the field you don't hand them a gift basket of insight. Grooming is BS.

Re: New Orleans Saints select Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft

I think what Drew means by keeping the backups off the field is that he stays healthy & makes the plays. He didn't mean he was concerned with loosing his starting job to anyone. As long as Drew is the man he will be the starter. No one is going to be chanting GG name as long as Drew is a top 5 QB. I think Drew will be the one to make the decision to retire prior to being replaced.

FYI...NFL.com is reporting that GG will be no more than a backup. What they didn't say was for how long.

I wanted Petty but well I guess that isn't happening.

However, I feel sorry for where Petty is going. He does not deserve that at all. He won't succeed on a team who will probably be a suffocating defense.
