Re: What if the unthinkable happens ...

Why would we move on from a true top 5 QB for an unproven draft pick? I would hope if we get the #1 pick we would trade out. We don't need a QB. We need everything else. When are Saints fans going to see that? What idiot thinks " My team sucks so ill trade my best player and suck more?".

Honestly I can't think of one player on the roster that I would miss or couldn't be easily replaced except maybe Cam Jorden. Excluding this years draft class.

If Armstead could play more than half a season at i time I would include him but he can't. Other than Brees, and that's becoming arguable we really don't have any other stand out players.

How has that worked out in Indy?

The problem I see is that we're depending on talent evaluators who haven't been very good of late.
Who is going to tank?

Players - Hell No!
Coaches - Hell No!

Who are you gonna get to tank?

Before the season I had us being 1 - 1 right now. I wouldn't feel so bad if we didn't have a high school defense.

Meh. As always, they'll follow the money.

Re: What if the unthinkable happens ...

IS there a sure fire franchise QB next year?

I was thinking the "unthinkable" would be a 10-4 tear through the season and win the division by a 1/2 game.

How's Dat sound?

That's the thing. I don't know if there is one. If there isn't then draft Oline to help Drew out another year until we can find a new QB. By the time he steps in at least he has decent protection as he develops. Kind of hard on a new QB to settle in when he's running for his life from game 1. A lot of good players don't make it in the NFL because they are thrown to the wolves without surrounding players good enough to let them learn.
Come to think about it I really think we should address the line via FA. Use the draft for defense and maybe a RT in 3-4 round.

If nothing happens, your starting O line is
LT Armstead
LG Peat
C Unger
RG Warfford
RT Ramcheck

I don't think anyone needs to be brought in. And I'm drafting a damn WR and speed on defensive end!

Sorry Danno, don't see the "excellently" in this group; collectively 14-20. Along w/ free agent bust last 3 off seasons. Receiving core, weakest of
Drew/Sean era.
