And that's all I'm saying we should view him as if he were signed; factor experience, Payton offense boost, he'd be better than Bridgewater or the Greatest Overpaid Backup in League History, Chase Daniels...

That’s my point. If Bridgewater is gone we’ll need a #2.

I continue to believe that he (MD) is the future coming off the edge.
For what Payton's invested with him, I agree, he should be starting...

Why wouldn't you pay Okafor to stick around as a rotation/reserve/depth while you can afford it with Davenport in a rookie contract?

We'd return all four of our edge rushers and could focus on fewer positions...

Plus, if Payton had liked Brate that much, why'd we let him get out of the house?!?
You're excluding the years before Howard when Brate was the #1 guy and a pretty decent TD machine in the redzone. I'm in no way advocating a Brate signing, but I stand by my statement that he's way more of an established presence than James. James sparks zero excitement in anyway.

Blocking. You're forgetting about blocking which Brate is not built to do. Drafting an offensive lineman isn't exciting, but it wins games...

Go back and look and when the Steelers were running teams into the ground, you'll find Jesse James blocking and making a complimentary reception...

That's what you need a complimentary player that doesn't break the bank...

Bridgewater is supposed to be the target of both the Jags and Dolphins, which I buy that theory - that may also net us a No. 3 compensatory pick in 2020...

Tanneyhill could be attracted to come in on a short-term two year deal to learn from Payton, Brees and then reboot somewhere afterwards...

The guy is good enough to win in short stretches, should that need arise - it's not like this offense isn't without teeth when Brees takes a breather...

Could you imagine us gaining a starter as a reserve and a Rd 3 pick for giving up a 3rd rounder and our backup? That'd be a sweet save...

Will we ever learn? Never let it come down to the officiating...

Bite your tongue - Don't geaux encouraging Payton so he can get off early and go play golf...

I'd be fine with either. Gotta believe in clutch moments (see Rams NFCCG), James makes a crucial catch or keep the chains moving.
