Exactly. So judging him in either way until he has a greater body of work is pointless at this stage. I really would like to see him under C, but just like any (rookie basically) qb. he's going to have growing pains, Brees will be here this season I never thought he wouldn't, but if he gets hurt or starts blowing games with his arm I would like to see a mobile qb with wheels to keep plays alive behind C.

Go get a proven GUARD to protect #9.

I saw ANDRUS PEAT get blown up in the Pro Bowl yesterday, subsequent fumble from Cousins & guess what JJ Watt running the other way for 6.

Saints MUST GET A GUARD who is good in pass protection & also understands blocking schemes. Preferably an above average one ... paging Brandon Scherff. It's time to get nasty in those trenches the way Carl Nicks & Jahri Evans used to do.

Give Brees great protection and he'll slice you up.

Damn JP.

I thought Warford was at least "serviceable".

Without good guard play, Brees is gonna suffer.

And here's the thing, Major, for what we're paying, we could afford Scherff, so we shouldn't just be getting "serviceable"...

And have you noticed how few screens we run the past two seasons?

We use run those all day, usually at least for one score a game...

Maybe the Saints will consider Joe Thuney @ G.

He's solid at guard, durable and relatively young. IMO Joe is an upgrade over Peat.

Could come a lot cheaper than Brandon (assuming he's out of the Saints price point) Scherff.

Maybe the Saints find a way to retain VB. He did lead our team in takeaways in 2019 & was always around the ball.

I'm very surprised Eric didn't get a "prove it" type of deal from any team last season.

One would wonder if Berry would have had more "impact" on the secondary instead of repeated collapses on the back end? IMO Vonn isn't the safety the Saints need to move away/upgrade from.

He didn't get that deal because they all know his time has passed.
