  1. Free Agency: Rumors, Visits, Signings, etc

    Honestly, if this comes together like I hope, this might just be the best all around team of the Payton-Brees era. 2018 is the year, we gotta get it done.
  2. Free Agency: Rumors, Visits, Signings, etc

    How much cap room do we even have at this point?
  3. Is Drew Brees a Top 10 QB of all time?

    Peyton Manning earned his Super Bowl ring by not screwing it up for the rest of the team. Sure, there are starting QBs that would have screwed it up, so there's that. The contribution of that Super Bowl to his status as top 5 all time is negligible. He was not a good QB that year. Peyton and Marino are top 5 overwhelmingly due to stats. Today's elite QBs have better numbers than their peers. It has nothing to do with having better numbers than some previous era.
  4. Ndamukong Suh - Hmmmm

    Not sure I want another dirty player on defense to resurrect the whole bountgate fiasco. Of course it would be worth it for a Super Bowl though.
  5. Saints resign Brees

    I wouldn't have had a problem with him getting more honestly. I wouldn't have liked it, but it is what it is. If true I'm happy with the deal.
  6. Saints resign Brees

    Saints would have more leverage if they had a backup plan for sure, or even if we sucked again last year, since 40 year old Brees means nothing to a garbage team. It just didn't work out that way though, and here we are again. Im all for getting a replacement, but only if he's a legit replacement, I don't want somebody on the roster just to have leverage in Brees negotiations. My view is pay Brees what he wants and let's try to win it all next year.

    So now I'm hearing that Brees can contact other teams during the tampering period, and indeed has been contacted by some. So apparently the earlier reports that he couldn't do so were inaccurate.
  8. Quarterback - Brees? Is it time?

    Brees arm strength has been confusing to watch the last few years. I never noticed a decline until certain games in 2014. Other people have talked about it before then though. But 2014 from my perspective, his strength would go up and down. Same with the beginning of 2015, but then all of a sudden it seemed to get a lot stronger for a while, or at least I started seeing some hard throws I hadn't seen in a while. And then certain games this year his arm would look weak, and other games it didn't. I really don't know what to say about his arm strength at this point, except that It isn't anywhere near zombie Manning level yet, but some decline is noticeable.
  9. Quarterback - Brees? Is it time?

    I agree. I think it's better for both parties to stay put, even if the Saints have to pay more than they wanted to(or even if Brees has to take less than he wanted to). The Saints really have no leverage here though IMO, due to the dead money and the fact that there is no plan B on the roster. There's no point in the Saints holding out and potentially letting another team make Brees an offer he can't refuse. Im still hoping the hang up has something to do with the Saints talking to other free agents, but if not, I feel like there's no choice but to give Brees the money he wants, until such time as plan b is on the roster and/or Brees craps the bed.
  10. Saints resign Brees

    It's irritating as a fan, but you can't blame a player for getting what he can get.
  11. QB Frenzy

    Another site says he can't begin negotiations until the 14th. I assume that means no contact either way, but I'm not sure. I don't see the Saints letting Brees go with the cap hit they'll take and the fact that there is no successor. They were a miracle play away from the NFCCG last year, so Brees has less reason to leave than he did in the past when the Saints were a dumpster fire. I think both parties are each other's number 1 option. It's possible a team could come in and make an offer Brees simply couldn't refuse and NO wouldn't pay, but I'd think a slim chance that could happen. Some in the Saints forum were hypothesizing that they may be waiting to hear some talks between the Saints and some other free agents that potentially want to play for the Saints before they finalize the deal for cap reasons. Regardless of the reasoning, I don't see Brees not getting re-signed by the Saints.
  12. QB Frenzy

    I've read reports that Brees can't talk to other teams until March 14th, even though other players get to start on March 12th. I don't know why that is, or if it's true, but it's what I read. Here's one article: https://247sports.com/nfl/new-orleans-saints/Bolt/Report-Drew-Brees-cant-talk-to-other-teams-on-March-12-116014445
  13. Is Drew Brees a Top 10 QB of all time?

    How the hell does this tell you anything? I guess Trent Dilfer is a better QB than Dan Marino. A QB needs stats to compete for all time. Those stats change according to era, but they need to be above their peers stats-wise. Super bowl wins is secondary after that. Brady and Montana have both, that's what makes them GOAT. Superbowl wins alone with pedestrian stats and they'd be viewed more like Bradshaw, Aikman, or even Eli Manning depending. Marino and Manning are firmly top 5 all time with pretty much nothing but stats on their resume. Yes, Peyton has two rings, but one wasn't really earned, and his other superbowl ring lives in the shadow of his stat production. Somehow, we've gotten the idea that stats are meaningless in the current era due to rule changes. That's not true, the bar for excellence has just been raised a bit. 40 TDs and 5k yards are still elite-level stats for this era, and consistently 30+ and 4k+ has won MVP. And consistent 100+ ratings generally convey great performance. When you also prove you can keep up this level of production(or exceed it) in the postseason, it becomes even more impressive.
  14. AJ McCarron Is he capable of starting in the NFL???

    He played like an elite QB. He was elite when he needed to be.
  15. Who helped/hurt their stock the most so far?

    I agree, I was only saying a lot of NFL players have relatively low bench numbers compared to gym rats, so I don't expect Brown to be spectacular. But even despite the fact that I'm not expecting spectacular, it's still hot garbage.
