Who are the real idiots for not signing Brees?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Even if the 2 were the same QB on the field, and I believe Brees is far better, there's no denying that Brees is 100 times the person Rivers is off of it. Seems pretty simple to me, for that ...

The Chargers had their QB in Rivers. The Dolphins had no QB. Seems obvious to me that the Dolphins made a bad judgment call.

So, exile...are you saying that Bolts did OK by electing to go with Rivers...or even draft a QB...and letting Brees walk? If the Bolts don't make a mistake first then Miami never gets the opportunity to make one.

Oh yeah I agree that drafting Rivers was an idiotic move. I was just commenting that at the time they let him leave at least they had a QB they were confident in moving forward around.

Let me add. I don't call anyone an "idoit" for not signing Brees after his shoulder injury. There was just as good of a chance that he would never play well again as there was that he would go onto great things. It was really more of a very good gamble by the Saints.

Re: Who are the real idiots for not signing Brees?

Some of you guys need to be a bit more objective in regards to the Chargers situation.......

At the initial draft, I thought the Chargers pulled a STEAL getting LT and Brees (who I thought was the best QB in the draft at the time) for the pick they traded to Atlanta (Mike Vick)........ but Brees was HORRIBLE in the beginning of his career (was even benched again for Flutie at one point).

Once again picking at the top of the draft after another losing season they went QB (Rivers was a great prospect). Rivers held out with contract disputes, so the job was Brees's and that was the year it finally clicked. (but lost to the JETS in the playoffs )

Next year he played well again, but torn his labrum in the last game of his expiring contract. Most likely fearing having another Chad Pennington (who the same year showed was not the same player after a similar injury) and with having a young QB making $$$ they let him walk, instead of commiting another contract to him. Not really a bad decision considering Rivers came right in and played well from the get-go, on Brees like level.

Hindsight being 20-20, who knew Drew would get BETTER (I think he's in a better system) but they made a business decision that hasn't hurt them.

Saints fans should be grateful of their choice, as they now have a franchise QB that enjoys being part of "WHO DAT NATION" (loved that quote last night)...... and that the Dolphins signed gimpy Culpepper who was never much without hucking it up to Randy Moss instead of Drew. (this is my favorite part)

The rest is history

Re: Who are the real idiots for not signing Brees?

Chargers made what they thought and quite few others thought was a sensible business decision. Mind you, I remember hearing some network saying the Saints should have gotten Culpepper - HA! Also at that time, Chargers fan forum was wishing Brees the best of luck being behing the O-line that Aaron Brooks had.

Fast forward
Chargers have done OK
Miami made a seriously bad decision
Saints made a franchise-changing decision.

You know, maybe Brees may not have made it back so big in San Diego. There is a partnership going on in New Orleans that just maybe helps Brees be that little bit extra better.
