Is Drew Brees holding the saints hostage?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The answer to this threads question is No. Brees will give us the best chance of making it back next year behind center. The rest is on coaching, play calling and consistent play. I don't know what team showed up ...

I don't know what team showed up to play the vikings but it wasn't one that could have advanced much further or have won the SB.

Of course all of this is based on my over 30 years of couch QB and sofa General Managing. The pay isn't great, but I know everything...

We have to put in another guy to throw long which alerts the common 12 year old fan to defend either a bomb or a qb sweep. They will be ready for it next season. Come next season my expectations are minuscule . Because Iím done getting burnt by the eye candy.

I donít know whatís more stupid, you thinking drew has lost it or drew has lost the team. Iím all for bringing him back for another year. I hope he gives a nice hometown discount so we can get him someone to throw to other than MT.

With Dav and Rank going down it was a lot easier for teams to game plan against Jordan. Those where 2 huge losses to our defense.

Re: Is Drew Brees holding the saints hostage?

I'm getting tired of these blaming everything on Drew threads. I'm not saying Drew played exceptional or anything, I just feel like our team is still lacking some things as it is constructed. There is this idea that is completely and utterly ridiculous that we would have done better if Bridgewater was the QB, and it's such a frustratingly stupid thought. Our offense lacks weapons. Kamara looked like a shell of himself for a large part of the season. Really the only two weapons that showed up in the passing game were Thomas and Cook. If Brees had another WR or 2 we'd be fine. Payton also needs to get his head out of his ass at times. One thing we did do better with Bridgewater as the QB was playcalling cause we actually focused on running the football. It's like when Brees is playing, Payton just says "**** it" and never runs the football at all. Brees can still win a Super Bowl. Our window is not closed... I don't even feel like it is closing cause Brees imo still plays at a high level. When you are forced to do everything with just one WR, you are going to get burned though. I'm totally fine with transitioning away from Brees now, cause I know he is getting older. If there was some way to trade away a bunch of draft picks and stuff for Burrow, I'd totally do it. I think Taysom Hill has real potential too. I still think we can win the SB with Brees in the next 2 years though.

Re: Is Drew Brees holding the saints hostage?

Laying the blame on Brees is an easy and cowardly way out.

I bet the original poster wore a paper bag to the very next Saints home game after the Super Bowl victory because there was no way the victory was for real.

Payton had no faith in the running game without Zach Line in with the O-line issues. He ran a backup OG at FB for a play and he botched it with a false start so that didn't help. Personally, didn't understand why he didn't run Murray out at that position and let him do some block and up the gut plays. Guys mentioned the 49ers and their missing players and even the ones they were missing arenít as critical in that running scheme as the FB. When he was out their running game was fully stoppable. With a fully healthy Peat and Line the Saints running game was equally unstoppable.

We were all fooled by the 4 game stretch of how the Offense was playing and when it came to the WC game Payton went back to throw first and ditched the running game too soon. Whether it was because of the protection or Minnesota's Dline performance minus the Hill plays the offense was fairly ineffectual.

Brees is more effective in this scheme than any other available QB...period...dot...end of story.

Re: Is Drew Brees holding the saints hostage?

Every QB left in the playoffs past the first round can all (move). They keep drives alive we punt ,they slide. Drew slid once for a 2 yard lost this year. Iím not throwing drew Brees under the bus his/ our hands are tied in the passing game. Itís MT or bust. It was a bust.itís not about the salary cap should have stated that sorry.

Re: Is Drew Brees holding the saints hostage?

I'll put a twist on the Brees "situation" ...

If he "stays", gotta upgrade the GUARD position. Peat was either hurt or a liability in 2019. At this stage of his career, Brees needs good solid guard protection in the middle. Vikings saw a weakness and exploited it.

Brees needs another "target" to throw to. Not necessarily the deep ball but a guy who can run short, intermediate routes and can create separation. Tre isn't the guy.

Lastly, upgrade players on defense so we can get off the field on 3rd down. LINEBACKER, DE (I don't trust Davenport to stay healthy 16 games) FREE SAFETY.

But again, we need more weapons at WR. I'd like to get another one in FA in addition to the draft.

I'm really curious to see who the Saints retain & allow to walk in 2020.
