I’d have to go with Teddy. The Saints are getting very close to handicapping the team to keep Brees.
As a Laker fan, I’ve seen this happen before. They kept Kobe a few years too long out of obligation and that hurt the team a few seasons AFTER he left.

With Teddy, the Saints are still the top team in the NFCS. And it forces Payton to be more balanced.

I agree that we don't want to handicap the team tremendously to keep Brees. We should take advantage of having a backup who can be groomed. However, i still think Brees gives the team the best chance to win next season over the other QBs. I would be shocked if Taysom leaves even if Brees stays. I don't see how we could keep Teddy in that scenario, though.

Invalid pole. No Tacoes option.

LOL everyone would weasel their way out of the poll. I don't think that anyone really wants to make the decision, Saints front office included. All three have their positives and negatives, all three will probably demand good sized salaries, and all three are A+ team mates and human beings.

I'm going to put this same poll up at a popular football forum that isn't affiliated with the Saints and see what they think. I'm pretty sure that there will be differing opinions on the matter.

Let Drew walk, Sign Teddy &Taysom but you half to draft a QB or bring in a traditional backup behind TB to let TH be TH.

You said what I have not heard before Sammy. No one wants to make this call especially our FO.

If Brees wants to play again, he's the best QB on the field and we likely do better with him on a new contract because we no longer have to just eat that huge lump of dead money.

If Brees retires, I think Teddy has to be who you go with. He's younger than Taysom and a better pure QB, which usually means more in the long run vs. being able to run the option.

And with Teddy as the starter, you can have Taysom play a good bit if you want while not overusing him to the extent that he loses effectiveness. He's going to be on the team regardless.

No matter what, we have to draft a QB to start grooming, even if the guy ends up being Teddy or Hill. You can always trade a good QB prospect for a high pick if they develop well, so it won't be a total loss and we need the contingency plan.

Here is my proposal. Sign Brees to a 5 year 50 million contract all guaranteed. 10 mill a year sounds low but he can play 2 years and it's essentially 2 years 50 million. This way he can play as long as he wants. I would offer Teddy a similar deal with bonuses if he becomes the fulltime starter. I think we are a prime location for potential backup QBs if he leaves. I like Taysom but I think he is too valuable in his current roles and we need to expand his usage in those roles.

It is Teddy without a doubt. We all love Drew, I certainly do, but the nfl stands for not for long and Teddy is our best piece moving forward.

1. Teddy has great arm strength.
2. He can still run if chased out the pocket
3. He is a very accurate passer.
4. He is a very coachable p mp player.
5. Great person.
6. Younger and in demand.

Drew loses out on three points:

1. Arm strength.
2. Isn't a runner.
3. If we don't commit to Teddy this year someone else will.

Would Drew accept a back up qb position. What about mayor of New Orleans, governor, senator, representative in the house? That is how much I feel he is loved. But Teddy is the future of we choose to take him.
