Let's face it guys we won't win until we start getting younger in most of these vet positions. We can't afford to keep everyone but at least lets just break down the right way and put it all back together. SAINTS 4 LIFE!!! Winston will find another home else where and so will Taysom.

Hey, if Loomis can get Watson then by all means.

Color me skeptical though.

The other thing is he might not want to negotiate with a player forcing a trade like Watson.

The only time I remember that happening is Jeremy Shockey if I recall and I'm not sure that shock asked to be traded. Payton just had a prior history with him.
You asked who could be better than Drew I just said Watson. Who knows we probably don't even entertain the idea and just roll with signing Winston. I just don't think Mac Jones will be the answer. We'll roll with whoever we got.

We're still in a win now mode there's no way we're drafting Jones thinking he'll get us to the SB.

But the guy who failed to lead his team to the playoffs once and they turned around and won the SB is going to.

Be careful what you wish for re: rebuilding. Yes the Bucs, Tom Brady and his ref friends won the Super Bowl. But Tampa fans had not enjoyed having their team in the playoffs since 2007.

They have a great team because they had high draft picks for years, finishing 4th in the division 8 of the prior 12 years.

The GOAT becoming a FA and recruiting veteran star FAs is something that literally has never happened; even Montana was /traded/.

Thomas, Lattimore, Anzalone, all the picks for Burrow

So now we need to find a number one WR and lockdown CB..and we have no picks to do it? Did this trade work on Madden?

If we're trading all that it better be for Watson.

Btw, the Bengals would turn down Anzalone.

Who was the last successful Texas Tech QB before Mahomes? Or Cal QB before Aaron Rodgers? Or Northern Iowa QB before Warner?

Gotta evaluate each QB individually.
For every great QB drafted, there have been at least 10 more that barely had careers. Playing at an NFL level is so different then playing in college.
Sean Payton knows what it takes at QB to run his system. I am confident that he knows who he wants to succeed after Brees. It may be a FA, he may already be on the roster, he may be a draft pick.
What the defense needs is an impact LB to pair with Davis , who probably has a couple of good years left.

We need another stud WR if we are going to match TB next year. But rookie LB's and WR's are seldom ready to start, especially in the saints system.
