    Love the guy, but if the Saints couldn't do it this year, they aren't going to win a Super Bowl with him. Time to use Teddy or Hill and out that cap money into the defense.

    That's stupid.

    Best QB Rating since the start of 2018:

    1. Brees.........115.9
    2. Mahomes..110.0

    Everyone else below that.

    59 TDs, 9 Ints the last 2 years.

    He's still the best QB in the NFL.

    How about we get rid of Peat and get him a second wide receiver?

    And get rid of that fucking loser, Dennis Allen.

    It is getting to be a repeated pattern of stupid interceptions and fumbles in the playoff games.

    He can't throw the deep ball anymore. Period. And he's always been prone to the "what the hell are you doing?" moment. Not often, but he does have them. But I would say he still has something left in the tank. He needs a number 2 receiver more than anything. The Saints should go heavy offense in the draft. Then....they've broken the bank for him on 2 consecutive contracts. Now, at 41, he needs to give the Saints a bargain on a 1, maybe 2 year deal, so they can go after the weapons he needs for a realistic run.

    Disagree. The offensive weapons weren't there. No legit receiving threat after Mike. Cook was underutilized. Kamara was never right (I've got red flags with him right now, but that's another thread). And after week 8, the defense was dealing with some ridiculous injury issues. 2 starting LBs out at the same time. Then 2 starting DL's lost for the year in the same game. Then both safeties out at the same time. So defensive continuity was an issue. I honestly love the potential starting 11 we're looking at on D going into next season. Cam, Rankins, Brown and Davenport across the front. Davis (starting to believe he is best LB we've ever had excluding the Dome Patrol), Klein and Anzalone or Alonso at the LBs. Lattimore and Jenkins at CB, with CJ as nickel, Bell and Williams at safeties. That's a solid group.

    Stephen A. Smith just now: "I don't want to hear any more about Drew Brees. When are we going to hold Sean Payton accountable?"

    He's not wrong.

    I thought there was pretty bad play calling last night, or maybe we just got whooped.

    Saints linebacker coach Mike Nolan named Cowgirls defensive end coordinator.

    Wouldn't you think whoever becomes head coach would be able to hire his own assistants? Cows will never be shit until Jerry Jones dies or turns it over to his son.

    Dallas hired Mike McCarthy as HC today, so he is making moves he likely already had lined up for Jerry
