Give me a big ugly in the first round. You win in the trenches folks! Give Drew time to throw and he's going to win games.

Oh yes, the run game should also be better between the tackles. The O-line problems is why Payton gets away from the run and Drew throws the ball so often then struggles to find an open receiver in 2.5 seconds.


Perfect !!! We have to built for the future ,sorry folks

What have you seen from Taysom that makes you think that he'd be at least an average QB? He's great at what he does but I've only seen a terrific athlete with subpar throwing ability when he throws.

Taysom is a stud football player. He has not put up any studly numbers at QB, however. He was a paltry three for six passing this year with 55 yards and no TD's. His strength is at exactly how he is being used ... as a versatile offensive tool and special teamer.

Justin Jefferson is definitely the pick.

Because throwing is what a QB does. And as much as I love what this kid brings to this team he is no Lamar Jackson. He can't do what Jackson does.
Conversely, Jackson couldn't do what Hill does. Two very different players.

I'm not so sure about that Guido. If we keep a strong O-line then a new QB would have time in the pocket to make sound decisions. It would also open the running game which means fewer passes. We have a decent defense that should play better and hopefully will and that helps win games.

These are the things needed in Drew's last years and for a new QB to step in and be successful. We did win 5 games with check down Teddy this year after all. Just sayin'.

Do not underestimate Brees' leadership on and off the field. He was right there through the stretch when the defense was winning us the games with Teddy just trying to keep out of the way. As I mentioned earlier, it could be years or longer before we have a QB that can have the positive impact of Brees again. His sort are few and VERY far between. Mahomes and Wilson may be the only other ones in the league today.

Exactly. Taysom is a gamer, a stud & he looked pretty darn accurate late in the season. I see us mirroring Baltimore going forward. Taysom is our guy, just watch.
