re: Backup QB Plan


Bray is my sleeper pick this year. I think he is high risk but real high reward. However, I think he could go in the 3rd or 4th and the saints really cant afford to use those picks on a backup QB

re: Backup QB Plan


Serious question. With this defense, is there ANY affordable veteran who could win a game as the starter? I mean, if they can score 30, which is what they would have to score to win, then why are they still available?

to me we really dunno how much it is the Payton system that elevated Brees from a good QB in SD to an elite one here- cuz he's never gone down (thank gawd). In the event he did, a young guy might shine brighter in this system than he might really be. I'm thinking like Cassel. The Pats won 11 games with him starting. He moved on and was shite in KC. I could dig a 4th or later QB with more potential than a PS scrub like Canfield. Shine them up then sell them off.

Use Daniel as a guideline. With 9 career pass attempts he became esteemed enough to get $3mil a year. If Brees had any outages and he played more that could have been multiplied exponentially (if it was good results).

Payton is an offensive genius that any QB is gonna look a level or two better than they might be in any other system IMO. Use that to create some tradeable value with a 4th or 5th rd pick.

Payton is instrumental, no doubt. But Brees is also that rare driven athlete that works himself to death to stay on top of his game. He outworks every other QB to overcome his limitations (size). I don't see him clubbing, smoking a doobie with the boys, etc. etc.

ETA: It would be nice to think Payton could mold another Brees, but I think he's a once-in-a-lifetime kind of player. Best I've ever seen, and I'm pretty damn old.

Then why sign Brees to a contract that cripples your ability to have a decent defense?

ETA: Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Drew brees, I just don't see a backup winning no matter who it is. They just can't score enough to make up for this defense so why bother spending money on a backup?

All of the top teams with huge QB contracts are struggling with the cap: Patriots, Saints, Packers, & Ravens.

Denver has a lot of young talent so they haven't had to sign anyone else to big long-term deals yet; other than Manning.

Brees was a #32 draft pick, the second QB after Vick. His performance in SD was good but not at the elite level we see now. My point is that this system prolly elevates any QB. Russell Wilson looks a helluva lot like Brees with the same off the charts intangibles. He landed in the right system tho. Another team and he might not have even won a starting job.

If Daniel who was UDFA and cut by the Redskins can turn into a 10 million dollar backup QB think what Payton could do with a higher upside 4th or 5th rder.

re: Backup QB Plan


I see your point, but I think there's the pre-injury Brees and the post-injury Brees. Two different beasts. I think the injury changed him and made him figure out how to prove everyone wrong by working himself tirelessly. Payton no doubt encouraged that.

re: Backup QB Plan


..and the owners came out like gang-busters on this new CBA deal: The salary cap this season is less than the salary cap of the 2009 season.
