Unless next year's potential deal is pushed into 2021? I'm asking because I don't know.

We can keep kicking the can down the road but eventually we will have to bite the bullet.

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

It’s time for him to go. Blame the OL, blame the wr, blame the coaching, blame the rb, and blame the refs. The true REASON is BREES, what coaches preach from lil league is protect the football. Interception led to a Viking td. Fumble cost us putting points on the board.

Do you think those 53 guys still have faith in Brees or prefer Hill or Bridgewater? It’s time to move on.

We have a damn good team and coaching staff and the was proved when we won 5 games strait with teddy frikin Bridgewater! Not trying to dog drew out,just giving my honest opinion. That guy will always be a legend here!
THIS THROW OUT BREES TALK IS ridiculous
Teddy is stiff with no long game
Ultra CONSERVATIVE

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

Yeah. I don't know who these fans are. Get rid of the most accurate QB in the league? Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

2nd guarter , Hill at qb to Harris , lots of yards there, and then Kamera took it for td,
Beautiful.
I am NOT throwing Brees out or on the AntiBrees campaign, but he was off today. It happens. O line, D line over all were off too.

Payton should have put Hill in at qb in 4 th guarter to stay.

Hindsight, I am talking hindsight. I know.

With all due respect to you, Brees did not get the Saints here. Not this year. He was up and down, and this team, for whatever reasons people want to believe, played better and more consistently in the games he missed.

My opinion is that this team was forced to play a balanced brand of football without Drew. And when he came back, it went right back to making Brees the focal point, and his diminished arm strength severely limits how diverse the passing plays can be anymore. There is virtually no threat of the deep pass. Because Drew is still an elite mind at the QB position, and is accurate in the distances he can reasonably throw to, he will have his moments. And we saw that. But we also saw some mediocrity in several games.

I don't say it's time to get rid of him, as this team needs to groom someone to take his place. But it IS time for this team to get serious about doing just that, and preparing for life after Brees. And it's time to stop pretending that Taysom is the 3rd string QB and make him a full time WR/TE. He's not a gimmick player. He is a star, who is confoundingly being straight jacketed by his "QB" status, all while the coaches have no problem making him cover kicks and punts. It's idiotic.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

When has any coach thrown in a qb over their HOF qb? Just dumb. We made bad gambles because we were being out coached, out played. This is the Saints ball I have grown up watching... We were unprepared. PERIOD. We should have grabbed Emanuel Sanders when he was available. These loss' have been reoccurring since I cannot remember. We have always been just one half foot short of a tackle, one blown missed tackle, one etc etc... Notice how I said nothing of the refs until now.... Sure, we got boned last year, sure it was a PI yesterday.... Little big plays screwed us per usual. WHO DAT! Stop being Houston fans and nut up, Brees has one more good one in him.

The more I think about it, that might be the best way to go. You can't underestimate the effect of not having Brees' leadership and going cold turkey.
Thank you.
Again, I am not on Anti Brees campaign or thinking he should be thrown out.
Again, I am not a fair weather fan.
