Report: New Orleans Saints concerned about decline in Drew Brees

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It's possible. We don't see Drew every day in practice like the coaches do. It's clear they're planning to move on from Brees due to drafting Grayson so I don't see how the article is all that far-fetched....

Re: Report: New Orleans Saints concerned about decline in Drew Brees

The Saints have Brees signed for two more seasons. He should play up to his contract over the course of that time. The wise move is let him play out the deal and see where the market is for him. A lot can happen to any QB, let alone one at his point in his career, in two years.

Brees should be fine over the life of his contract, and that should be all we should worry about.

He had a top 10 defense, the best running back in the league, and the Vikings knew he was too old to be the gunslinger he was in Green Bay. He did pretty well, but he quickly broke down after the end of that season.

Guys like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady almost never get hit. When you're getting into your mid to late 30's and you've been taking a beating for a couple years, you WILL decline.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Report: New Orleans Saints concerned about decline in Drew Brees

I will say this about our quarterback situation:

Unless Grayson were a total flop, he makes the team based on draft status, investment as he wasn't a Day 3 pick - that'd be different...

With Grayson on the roster, we will carry three (3) quarterbacks so a rookie is not in there if something happens with Brees...

The competition will be between Griffin and McCown with Griffin being the backup if he plays as good as McCown with McCown's salary number...

It's not just the age issue with Brees, but as more time passes post shoulder reconstruction, he will be limited in his throws...

Brees will have to be extended at least another year to bring down next season's cap number, unless Grayson proves the next coming...

So so year, bahahahaha. Are you kidding or just forgetful? I remember he had a phenom year that year so I went to check the stats.

68% completion, 4200 yards, 33 td's, and 7 int's

If that's so so, what's good? lol

Re: Report: New Orleans Saints concerned about decline in Drew Brees

Do guys like Manning & Brady almost never get hit because of their offensive lines (possibly in Brady's case) or because they know how to move in the pocket (as in Manning's case)? I don't think Manning has fused vertebrae or whatever because he almost never gets hit ... I think the reason guys like Brady/Manning/Brees are at the top of the game at their ages is simply because they know how to play (students of the game).

Couldn't agree more, SloMo.

He was a game manager, just as I said. 4200 yards is good (I said he did pretty well that year) but not great in this age of football, where almost no one is under 4000 yards anymore. There wasn't much of a down field attack. The simplified approach kept the turnovers down for a guy who, even when he was winning MVP's, was a turnover machine his whole career. Then he started getting beat up again, and it was over. Remember that?
