Who will be more exceptional than Brees, right now? Gee, I don't know Guido, let's go shake a magic 8-ball and maybe we'll find the answer. The Saints will have to figure it out. Because what they have now, is NOT exceptional, anymore. You don't make a change because the future is guaranteed to be successful. You make changes because when something, or someone is deteriorating, it IS a guarantee that you will fail if you do nothing about it.
Sorry, but even at this point in his career, Brees is far more exceptional than 80%-90% of the QB's in the NFL today. Is he as exceptional as he was in the past? Of course not. But, what makes you think we can pull someone out of our asses that will be better than him in the next few years? All I am saying is don't force him out as long as he is still one of the best in the league. Which he is!

Believe or not, there will be life after Drew. He's 41.

For me it's getting kind of stale having to worry how much time he has left with us, and at this point I'll be ok with whatever he decides to do this season. When the quarterback position is cheap (Ravens/Texas/Chiefs), you can throw money around to other needed skill positions on both sides of the ball.

It's time for the Saints to "hit" on another QB and I hope we draft one early.
Hitting happens all the time, right? What's this, the second time in 53 years now for the Saints? And what did the other one get us? We are just as likely to take another 25 years to find another as good as Brees is today. At 41 years old he is still one of the very best in the NFL today. Realize that FACT.

I agree, drew will be done soon and some want to wait after he leaves to draft a qb its too late by then. We gotta play the long game. Imma Saints fan above anything or one else. I just hope drew would not pull a brett favre and not help coach the guy. That said we got a real good leader in demario that i feel with all my heart can be the leader that drew is.

Again, I did NOT say Bridgewater is an answer, and I CERTAINLY did not say Hill was. Hill should be a full time receiver. Why is it that you and others keep bringing up the guys on the team, as if they are the only options to replace Drew?

And while Payton might not WANT to go air raid with Bridgewater, at least Teddy can throw it far enough. With Brees, there is no chance. The defense doesn't have to respect the deep ball. That's a problem.

And you blatantly misrepresented my words. I did not say the offensive formula was SOLELY what won those games without Brees. I have repeatedly said "team". I have drilled that point into the ground and somehow you still invented another narrative from what I said.

I said that the formula during Brees' absence was more efficient, not that it was the only reason the team won. And are you even aware of what formula I'm speaking of? Running the ball down the opponents throats, setting up play-action passes (this is what Tennessee did upon the switch to Tannehill, that I referenced earlier) and dominating TIME OF POSSESSION. You know what's a good formula for playing good defense? Not even being on the field. I referenced the lack of consistent ball control way earlier, and I guess that point flew right by you.

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

After almost 32 years of marriage I have cooked almost every single meal ... minus a few when I was recovering from the cancer surgery which I kicked its ass.

I am all for drafting a QB to replace Drew. I am against trying to force Drew out while he is our best chance.
