Drafting a QB early is somewhat giving up on “one last run”.

We will be hurting “post Brees” regardless.

Anything other than a player who can contribute now is pointless. Unless you prefer to finish 6-10 instead of 4-12 the year after Brees retires

Wasting another first round pick on moving up to get an unproven Davenport (you paid for pie in the sky potential) didn't get us a Super Bowl either.
So the worst call in NFC Championship history, and he being injured and not participating in the Vikings playoff game is your parameter?

What about next year? Does that not matter?

Meh, we going to draft one high in the next couple of years. The Chiefs didn't need Mahomes.

True, Davenport has flashed but has not justified what we gave up

Correct, in fact not even close.

He essentially was a top 6/7 pick for what we gave up. He needs to turn into Von Miller to justify what we gave up for him.

It doesn't....Especially when the Saints plan to use Taysom Hill as a band-aid temporarily next year until the following year when they go all in on Deshaun Watson who I doubt will be franchised again for another year. Or, give up the farm in a trade for Watson next year.

This is wrong. If you get a starter at QB you get him. Many positions drafted at #24 don’t make an impact right away.
