As Nick says ...

People can argue about coaches and coordinators, assign blame here or there and debate what should or shouldn’t happen next, but nothing is going to matter this offseason unless the Saints find a solution at quarterback.

What is the answer for the most important position on the roster?

As you repeatedly say, "The Fans have ZERO affect on any of this." Neither does Nick Underhill. So why would you distribute more and more Kool-Aid, laced with a hallucinogen? There is NO ARGUMENT about our coaches and coordinators. They have proven that they suck. PERIOD.

Re: What should the Saints’ plan be to upgrade at QB?

I think we can all agree that Andy Dalton isn't an answer. Or at least I hope we can.

Do we give Winston another shot coming in healthy?

Do we look do trade for someone like Carr? Lamar?

Do we take our new found draft picks and trade up and spend the wad on a rookie and throw him out there day one?

"We" don't do anything, but sit back and watch what happens (or more importantly) what doesn't happen.

Stand our ground in the draft or only trade up a little not some disaster trey lance or rg3 type trade. Draft a qb to develoo and hope to find the next jackson, hurts, or purdy. Start Dalton or Watson or someone else cheap day 1. Give the young qb time to develop. We are not a carr away from a ring and giving jackson a megadeal would be bad long term, it would cost too many picks and too much guaranteed money and running qbs dont age well. Plus we dont have the cap for jackson without hanstringing our ability to keep out younger talent for years to come.

Re: What should the Saints’ plan be to upgrade at QB?

I think it somewhat depends on what comes from the eventual SP trade.

Will we have enough draft capital to acquire a potential franchise QB this year?

I'm not convinced that any current FA QB will fill the void for any significant amount of time.

Aside from that, do you make a play for Lance or Love?

I think therein lies the biggest problem. How do you ever know if that player will ever become a franchise QB?

I think I'd almost rather use our higher draft capital on players at other positions that have better chance of contributing fairly soon, find some decent bridge QB, and draft mid-round types and hope one pans out at QB. Problem is that might takes years to hit, but at least you be building at other positions along the way.
