    When it comes to the evaluation of a QB, Sean Payton has no peer. That's like walking into Dr. James Andrews office and explaining to him how you want your shoulder repaired. Don't **** with a specialist.

    I don't know about that one I would give McDaniels more credit than Sean Payton....Im all for giving a person credit but Sean Payton hasn't really developed a QB yet definitely not Dr. James Andrews expert type...now having Drew Brees makes one look like an expert...Saints have really been blessed that Drew Brees hasn't been injured because he's been skating on thin ice without a backup.

    Umm, Drew Brees wasn't close to what he is now at San Diego. He was a good QB until he met up with Payton. Now he's NFL MVP-worthy and people are starting the HOF talk. Also, Payton got to the Superbowl with Kerry Collins and made Quincy Carter look like a feasible option at QB.

    Who has McDaniels developed? He was a defensive assistant until 2004 when he was promoted to QB Coach. At that point Brady had already become a two-time Superbowl winning QB. We're left with Matt Cassell.

    Is that the argument that I understand that you're making?

    I don't even like McDaniels or think he's all that just saying ppl give him more credit it seems like as the "QB" Guru now a days. Payton really hasn't developed anybody either Brees wasn't garbage in San Diego either and the Saints had the katrina/city rebuild and winning for the city n etc. which also helps gives Brees more publicity. Brees would be Brees without SP

    like i said in the other thread i roasted the saints for moving up to get morestead but he did kick the onside kick in the superbowl and pinned indy deep more than once that game, i was wrong, i hope i am wrong about this draft. I think the Graham pick is a reach, but everyone is in love with the big powerforward turned TE like Tony G and Antonio Gates.

    The Saints make most of their best moves in free agency anyway.

    If you think that Drew Brees at San Diego was anything like the Drew Brees in New Orleans, then you just need to watch more football. He was good as a Charger. As a Saint, he's arguably the best QB in the NFL. Just look at his numbers. There is a huge, Grand Canyon-like gap between Brees, Brady and Manning and the rest of the NFL QBs.

    I'm not really sure what Katrina has to do with Drew Brees playing better other than it served as the catalyst to match him with Sean Payton, either. Publicity doesn't win games or elevate your game.

    So if McDaniels has developed literally no QBs, how exactly is he better than Payton? He ditches Cutler and gets Kyle Orton, a mediocre QB with Chicago. He places Orton behind a much better O-Line with a better running game and throwing the ball to who some would argue as the best receiver in the NFL and he turns Orton into... a mediocre QB?

    Really?

    Looks like Haynesworth wasn't an option.
