I just think its too early. baring injury, I think brees can last another 5 years.

Do we really want to bring in a ~23 year old QB that will have to sit that long before he gets to start his first game?

I do like the Murray talk.

and I also think a 2nd or a 3rd on a QB is a totally plausible strategy.

Doubt they seriously consider drafting a QB in the 1-3 rounds for another two or three years. I also wonder if Payton calls it quits when Brees is done.

If he develops a pocket presence, then who knows?

Jameis Winston should be available for the Saints in 2015...

I don't think it's so much that Griffin couldn't beat out McCown as it was Payton preferring to have a veteran back up opposed to a rookie.

Just draft a QB that falls a bit in a couple of years.

he is quickly climbing the draft boards, and if he carves up the rest of the schedule he will be a top 5 player IMO

Aaron Murray would be my choice and let him sit for 4 years and learn from Brees.

So take some other picks to trade up in the 1st Rd for a guy on the bench for 4 years? He won't be getting much experience. Saints QBs other than Brees number of pass attempts the past 4 years- 9 in the past 3 years. Brunnell got 30 in the game Brees sat down for in 2009.

The successor to Breesus is prolly still in high school.

I'd like to spend a 2nd or 3rd rounder trying to win a super bowl right now and protecting Brees so he can play to at least 40

The first round pick next year should be O line.

It's way too early to even think about this. Who thinks about the QB of the future when their team is presently a Super Bowl contender with a QB that is still breaking records? The days of drafting guys to groom for 4 years are over. QBs are coming out of college ready to play day one. By making a guy sit for that long is just doing a disservice to the player and the organization that drafted him.

Edit: Also, it makes it even dumber when you consider the guy will be at the end of his rookie deal before he even starts a game. Who wants to sign a guy long term before he starts a game?
