Brees is what gets us here in the first place

Drew had a bad game

Wardord and Pete gave Drew no time in the pocket - worthless
Thinking Brees is what got us here is ridiculous. This is a complete team man,and a damn good one.
And I agree with you on teddy and that's exactly my point. We won 5 games with that guy. Coaching and players stepped up in Brees was out proved this team gets complacent with him here.
I do not,however believe in any way that Brees is the reason for this loss

Re: I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......

i think either brees retires or we should not resign him. i say that with the upmost respect for what he's done here. might feel differently if he didn't already have over 20 on the books for next season. if we sign him to a one year deal, we're looking at almost 50 million on one player. that means serious cap casualties, and i just don't think drew is going to be the reason we win another super bowl, so it doesn't seem worth it.

if we're looking to the future, i would sign taysom to a reasonable contract that is backloaded to allow us to retain some of the current talent. make him the starter. once drew's money is off the books after next season taysom's contract can go up and we won't be in such a bad spot. if taysom doesn't shake out as a good starting QB, we have a bad season, get a good draft pick and start fresh with our QB hunt and not be in a terrible spot with taysom because his contract would likely be manageable and if he can't play QB we know he can play pretty much any other position.

For me, it's time for Drew to take the kind of pay cut that allows this roster to be rounded out.
I love drew and want him back. No one out there could do the job he does. With that said I pray he doesn’t want 20+ a year. If this is truly his last year he should want to go out on top. The saints will need the extra money to pick up a wr and resign some fa’s. Kinda a squirrel moment but I hope they trade AK for a ton of picks. He was a good at best this year and most of the time he was outplayed by Murray. Trade AK for a rd 1 and 3 this year, move up to draft burrow and our future is set

He should learn a lesson from Brady, take a pay cut and have the Saints buy some O-line and receiver talent with it. Barring that, next season will look like 16 X yesterday.

Re: I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......

The Saints front office has serious decisions to make this off season ...

Starting with Drew Brees.

Re: I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......

No way I see Brees coming back for less than 20 Million....I could be wrong but if he would have done that several years ago we could have definitely had a better team around him in his prime.

As K Major said, we have a lot of decisions to make this offseason. All our QBs are up for contracts and we have several deficiencies that have to be addressed...OL, CB, S, WR...are all major decisions with very little cap room.

Our window is just about shut...but we do have a good core group of players.

Re: I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......

I don't want him back, he is done, Vikings exposed the biggest secret about Drew. rush him up the middle and he is worthless,

People say how can you throw out the most accurate qb in the league. if you been watching the game like I have most of his passes go to one player Thomas or he throwing short passes. Thomas catching radius is out of this world and even Brees worst passes is most likely going to be completed to Thomas. He got his record which I think he cared mostly about for his legacy. I really lost my respect for him throwing one his teammates under the bus, How you going to blame ONE receiver not running the right route for you fumbling the ball. If the play is not there you find someone else or throw the ball away. Not drift back for more time to focus on ONE wr. I really believe he was trying to compete with the pass of Taysom Hill to Deonte. He can't stand when the accolades and appraisal is going to someone else under center, that's why I believed he rushed back from his injury. Like I said before I am a saints fan not a Brees groupie.

Re: I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......

I want him back as a QB coach. I don’t want to see him as the QB next year.

He may be the greatest regular season QB ever but when he gets in the playoffs he has been consistently bad or lackluster. When your game plan is based on how your QB limits your offense your always fighting with one hand behind your back. Brees hasn’t been able to throw a deep ball since 2013, and it’s gotten worse every year since. Every D knows how to play Drew now and good DCs will always beat him.

We need to move into the new age of QBs and stop limiting what Payton calls, it’s time to move on from Drew and thank him for his time.

If Drew comes back, we’ll be in this same spot next year. We’ll beat the bad teams and lose when it matters against legit playoff teams.

How many playoff teams did Drew beat this year? Just Houston... and we could have easily lost that one.

The Saints are 0-42 when running the ball less than 15 times in a game.

Re: I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......

Damned if we do, damned if we don't

What is the point of Brees IF we do not have sufficient money to improve the O-line?
IF we do not have sufficient money, why is that?
