Who are the real idiots for not signing Brees?
 
When the Saints win it all... ESPN, PFW, etc. are going to be stuck on saying the Chargers were idiots for letting Brees go.

As good as Brees is, Rivers is no chump... as he was also a candidate for MVP. It's impossible to say what would have happened had Brees stayed in San Diego and maybe Rivers went to New Orleans.
Also, keep in mind that Brees has 8 years as a starter as Rivers has 4.


Fact...
The true idiots of this all are the Miami Dolphins!!! They could have had Brees but chose Culpepper instead!!!

Give what up? I've stated many times that I'm proud of Brees.

You keep trying to justify your team's decision to keep Rivers and dump Brees, but it appears to me that you haven't really gotten over it and prefer Brees but just don't want to admit it. Otherwise, you wouldn't be hanging around here so much, IMHO.

It's OK...really...because we can all agree that Rivers is kind of a flake with an empty spot on his finger.

Create a thread to politely and eloquently take a dump on Brees and highlight your own QB and expect us to sit back and relax and take it like a man?
Are you seriously dogging a Saints player -(Yes he's saints material now and his kid is a born and raised "NEW ORLEANIAN" ) - that took our beloved team to the special dance?!?
Dude don't get it twisted, i want to thank your organization from the bottom of our hearts to giving Bree's all of that experience out the way, and then putting him in a situation to have us get blessed with signing him but Don't come on here and dog NONE Of our players, we aint putting up with that crap.
This team is Family to us, when you talk bad them or even politely do it, somebody is going to pick it up and get angry about it, you don't throw family in the dirt and expect the others to just stand by, you had me rolling my sleeves up to punch back with this one..

Actually, you're dead wrong!!! Rivers has given us no reason to miss Brees BUT that's not what the media is going to say... AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS SAYING! Pay attention!!!

They didn't dump Brees, he was a free agent. Get your facts straight!

I have no idea what "flake with an empty spot on his finger" is suppose to mean but at 46-18... it can't be bad!!!
Do your research!!!

I'm proud of Brees but I'm very happy with Rivers. In 4 years, he's made great achievements and he''l get his shot!!!
In 8 years, Brees is getting his opportunity and I hope he gets it!!!
I hope the Saints get it!!!

Point out where I talked badly about the Saints or Brees.
This thread is about media coverage and facts.

I had me rolling your sleeves up to punch back... I didn't throw a punch to begin with. Pay attention.

Every fan is passionate about their team.

Why does that not surprise me?

I did as you said...and even after research when I look-up number of SB victories for P. Rivers it keeps coming back with 0 (zero).

Anyway...I give up. I am trying to help you out, but you refuse to let anyone. I'm trying to point-out to you how foolish you look coming to another team's site and trying to justify one of the worst blunders in the history of the NFL...but you just keep doing it. At least I can say I tried...if you refuse to listen, there's nothing more I can do.

OK. No point talking to ignorance.
Drew's contract expired in San Diego in 04. He then signed a 1 year extension through 05. After the 05 season, that makes him a free agent.
EASY TO UNDERSTAND!!!

Brees doesn't have a Super Bowl victory (yet) either. So what?
46-18 in 4 years... yeah, that's a real blunder. :rolleyes:


Again, this thread is all about media coverage... that's all!!!
I will ignore your ignorance!


With all that said... Go Saints!!!

Too all that got upset over this thread... all it's about is pointing something out that the media never brings up (and ignores).

It is not even about who the better QB is. That will be answered when both hang up their pads.

It is about is about the Dolphins choosing Culpepper over Brees.
Can we please stick to the subject?

Thank you.

Culpepper is now the back up for the Lions?

This year's MVP selections were between Manning, Brees, Rivers, and Farv.

Isn't it easy?!!!

Before you speak for everybody in here, take a look in the "GO FREAKIN' GET IT" thread. There are several other threads you can look at too.

This is a thread full of class act fans but unfortunately, there are a few trolls. Those trolls want me out. If the rest of the fans felt that way, I'd be out.

So realize that you are minority and speak for yourself!!
This is discussion. Nobody is forcing you to take part in it.

I thought I was. If it makes you feel better, I will amend my statement and say emphatically, "I don't care." I'm sure there are others here that don't care to compare Brees and Rivers at this time when we are playing Peyton Manning and the Colts.

This thread should be in the NFL forum. I really don't care about what the media says about the chargers loss in Brees. It isn't about the chargers or rivers or what the media says about them. Bolt you were classy in your defeat and thanks for your support but you probably should post issues with the Chrgers and media in our NFL forum and not the Saints forum.

Point is Bolt..and no offense..is the Chargers could have resigned Brees..but chose not to..so if Brees does win the big one.. a lot of people will question the move...again Thanks A.J

Re: Who are the real idiots for not signing Brees?
 
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 reason alone, the Chargers screwed up.

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.

Revis Saves 02-01-2010 10:53 AM

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 :mrgreen:)

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) :doh: :mrgreen:

The rest is history

I would like to personally thank all the teams who passed on Cool Brees.

Seriously. Thanks. You da man.

UK_WhoDat 02-01-2010 01:16 PM

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.
