How likely is it, or what will it take for them to at least sit Drew Brees?
I honestly don't believe Sean P will "sit" Brees now that the season (playoff purposes) is over. Would be very surprised if we see Grayson, Flynn etc at all the remainder of the year.

Enjoy those 50 yard line seats .

Not happening, dude. Least of your worries. Like down there with global warming and stuff.

Sorry, couldn't resist...

Yeah it's lunacy to think that Brees would ever be benched or satten down.

We aren't going to tank or sit anyone at all. It will be the same going forward. We might mix a few more reps and snaps for depth guys and hurt guys may get an extra week on the bench but I don't see this organization making obvious sit downs of veterans or shelfing anyone.

Re: Strategy for Remaining Season?

I hope and mostly believe what all of y'all are saying about them not sitting Brees. I'm just worried because I went to see them play @Carolina the Super Bowl year, and they sat Brees because we had our position locked up.

I don't believe that the Saints are the kind of organization to intentionally tank for draft positions. However, if they lose a few before that game, i'm afraid they will sit him for any variation of reasons. Health, see grayson play, etc..

That's what I said about Grayson.

Re: Strategy for Remaining Season?

Look forward to next season with the hope there will be mega changes. Evaluate what we have by playing players who need the playing time to prove themselves.
One more note. Payton knows how to win, short term. He doesn't know how to sustain it.
I don't think there's a fix for that.

Evaluate for next year? If the coach and staff get fired it won't matter. New coach, new players!

Ride out the string, veteran's in, unless they suck then go with the youth movement…ticket holders deserve as much.
