What a dumbass.
Brees is our starting QB next season. Hill will be QB#2/3. We may go after Mariota as a back up. Bridgewater will get a Kirk C. deal by one of the teams at the top of the draft this year.

Did he say which Boy and Girls club he is using to broad cast his decision?

Read my words carefully. No where in that post did I say that Loomis wrote any succession plans. What I said was that he has them in place. Sean has a strategy for any player falling, Loomis has a strategy if something happened to Sean, and Gayle has a short list if Loomis and Sean go fishing and get et by da gators.

I am quite sure a $2BN franchise has accountants, Loomis is not one of them. His under graduate is in accounting but his Masters is in Sports Administration.

LOL of course Drew is going to wait until after the season ticket deadline, so we have to send in our renewal money to the Bensons, not knowing if he'll be there or not. LOL.

Brees better make up his mind and stop holding this team hostage, we have 2 quarterbacks that can win

And what two QB's would that be? The one that was carried by the defense or the one that passed six times for three completions and a total of 55 yards?
Brees isn't holding anyone hostage. Take a frickin' xanax and chill out.

Real fans would renew regardless of who was playing QB. That shouldn't even be a factor. We've been on the waiting list for years and would renew the rest of our lives given the chance.

Re: Drew Brees will “give it a month or so” before making his decision

He's going to be 41 years old this coming season.

Brees has already declined steeply. It's ignored cause we as fans are biased towards our legendary HoF QB, but age catches up with everyone.

He has a ring, all the records he wanted and we have a young hot shot in Bridgewater waiting in the wings to start.

I hope he does retire and we move on with Bridgewater starting. As much as I love Brees, I do not love watching legends past their prime still trying to push themselves. It was sad watching Manning and Favre in their last years. It's been sad watching Brady the last 2 years.

Brees' decline has been very real, but is often ignored cause he still posts high completion percentage stats, but that is mainly cause the Saints rarely ever pass over 10 yards anymore. He's been a checkdown king for a while now.

I'm not convinced we would be winning with Taysom Hill starting under center. But we were 5-0 with Bridgewater and we had a balanced offense during that time span.

That balance went entirely out the window when Brees came back and we had to start chasing records for him to pass Manning on the all time TD record.

These last 3 playoff exits have been brutal. We averaged 30+ points in the regular season the last two years, yet couldn't score more than 23 points in the playoffs, and all these games with the exception of the 2017 Vikings game were at home where we are supposedly invincible.


Between 2009 to 2011 (Brees' prime) we averaged 36 points in the playoffs and that is including losses to Seattle and SF.

The way I see it; Brees has all the records he wanted and he won a SB. He will never have to face the scrutiny or absurd BS that guys like Dan Marino and Jim Kelly have to face with being labeled "playoff chokers" because at the end of the day, he has a ring. That one ring is why few people in the media criticize Aaron Rodgers when he stinks it up in the playoffs. Ring gives you the benefit of the doubt no matter what.

Brees will always be a god to us. If he retires now, he ends on a higher note than he would going another year and us losing in the first round of the playoffs again.
