Yes. They drafted him when Brees was the starter, but he wasn't the Brees we know today. He was barely struggling to hold on to the starting job over Flutie. So in 2004 the Chargers drafted Rivers. But he held out for most of training camp so Brees was the starting QB going into the season and ended up having a monster year. Then he got franchised and had another huge year in 2005.

Yes the injury factored into that too but I don't think it was ever a question of would he return to the same performance level. The injury was just bad timing.
Rivers wasn't cheaper, but he was younger. Once again, my point is that Brees wasn't a SURE thing like you said he was. His injury was a factor, otherwise Miami would have picked him up. Instead, they went with Culpepper. Bad choice of course, but Miami was concerned about the shoulder.

I think at some point, this team is going to take a risk in terms of getting their QB. I guess you could make the argument that they did that with McNabb, but who knows maybe they do need to pay a bit of a ransom to get an RG3 or Luck. Still, there are very few sure things out there in terms of QBs. Let's just hope any risk we take works out for once.

McNabb wasn't injury, it was mechanics. And a desire to even play the game. Rolling the dice on a vet guy like McNabb and rolling the dice on a guy like Luck/RG3 are two totally different risks if you ask me.

Re: Official Super Bowl Thread

Pats have no one to blame but themselves. Way too many mistakes that ended up costing them.

I said Brees was a sure thing? I don't remember saying that. I know since he was injured it was a risk but I didnt feel like it was a long term concern at the time.

Old school when your team was out of the playoffs you cheered for your division to win the SB who ever it was. I have no problem rooting for the Giants but I could not cheer for the Cowboys or Eagles.

It's his wife. It's after the game, everyones emotions are running high and she's getting heckled. All of the so called experts said that he missed some throws so who really cares what his wife thinks.

Totally disagree with this. But if people are looking for someone who blames Brady...

Lets say Brees came here. He wouldn't be the QB he's become. Not here, not under this organization. He got with the perfect coach and a stable front office. People may not remember this but back in 04, Kurt Warner was out there. Instead the Redskins and Jow Gibbs decided to go with a past his prime Mark Brunell.
