We are in win now mode with people trying to push Brees out the door. Whomever replaces him four years or so from now will very most likely be nothing more than average and that will guarantee more 7-9, or worse.
Most of them do that's right, but there's every chance we get the next Marcus Peters if we draft one.

Every chance? If that was true then EVERY one drafted would be Marcus Peters. No. There is a very small chance that any rookie CB will have a significant impact.

Peters talent and skill set at the corner back position are rare at the NFL level.

Win now, spend what we must.

When Brees is gone then worry about overpaying key positions.

Re: THE JOE HADEN WATCH

The problem with win now theory is that we have been up against the cap to much to be in a spending spree.

I think they learned a valuable lesson. Drafting is going to save you money and move players just before they are due big contracts. That is what the smart teams are doing.

I like what they started doing last season but we won't see the change for another year or two.

The only thing stopping us from getting to the SB again is a turn around on the defense and a few big plays on ST's.

Re: THE JOE HADEN WATCH

We need a starting CB. Like yesterday. Drew is aging by the minute.

Re: THE JOE HADEN WATCH

Joe Haden is a top corner when healthy. If we can keep our 1st rounders for this year then we have to pull the trigger. It pushes CB down on our priority list so we can have the flexibility to address other needs.

Re: THE JOE HADEN WATCH

I Like the idea. It would be a good fit for us I think and we can afford it now. Now at least we have a couple of solid options that we are looking at in free agency before we get the draft
