I think we need to do what ever it takes to get Burrow. I don’t think it would take a Ditka type trade but we need him.

He checks off every box you could ask a QB to have. He doesn’t get rattled or make bad throws. He knows part of our offense already and executed it to perfection. He broke the record for highest completion percentage in NCAA.

And what ever test they were talking about where they tested the team for reactionary skills and other things he scored in the 90th percentile. He’s is the second coming of Drew and can keep this offense flowing when Drew retires.

A scouting report:

OVERVIEW
Burrow is a once in a lifetime college quarterback. He has done everything right while at LSU and has done a great job of representing the university on and off the field. Unfortunately his skills don’t translate to his being a lock to make it big at the next level. He has an adequate arm but can struggle when needing to throw a dart on the intermediate to deep outs and the ball will float on him at times when deep passes down the seam. He understands the game and does a good job of reading coverages and making good decisions before and after the snap. He is athletic and has done a wonderful job of hitting the weights to improve his physical stature.

STRENGTHS
Burrow is a natural leader with high character. Played with a lot of intelligence in LSU’s system which he mastered. Was extremely productive. Possesses a quick release. Displays great accuracy in the short passing game and puts the ball in a position to set up his receivers for run after the catch. Has the foot-speed to avoid the rush and buy extra time.
WEAKNESSES
Burrow lacks a cannon for an arm. Can fit the ball into spots on intermediate routes at times but will struggle with the deep ball. Release point is a little low. Needs to improve his accuracy on long passes down the field and toward the sideline.

Yeah and what round did he take Brady in? What round did he take Garoppolo in? How about Brissett? He's proven that he doesn't need the current hit of the week to accomplish what he needs to. I'm sure he wants a Kardashian as well but he's too SMART to mortgage his future for one. Again it's not about what Belichick "wants" it's about the "smart" thing to do.
Garoppolo in round 2, as I recall.

And then they can franchise tag him twice before it becomes too cost prohibitive. Whatever team drafts him realistically can have him under control for 7 years if they feel he’s worth it.
Unless he sits out the season.

Fromm has definitely regressed.
So did his WRs. Georgia lost Riley Ridley, mecole hardman, and Isaac Nauta.

Regression or not, he has the measurables and intangibles. Fromm is worth a strong look. Further, He has not played poorly this year. He has 3 interceptions on the year and all 3 were in 1 game

Then he will be a free agent like Bell.
And as a QB he’d lose out on more than twice as much money than Bell did by sitting out for a year. Not sure if Bell is the person you want to use as a measuring stick. 😂

Y’all just need to accept that Burrow has as much of a chance as being the successor to Drew Brees as you or I do.

As much as I would like to see Burrow be Drew's successor or SP develop Taysom to be the successor, at the end of the day SP will get his guy and will develop him whoever that will be.

Unfortunately for Burrow, he will probably get selected by a team whose oline and run game is weak, that's why they lose. Many a quarterback who was selected high and had great college careers are a bust after being beat up. Those same players would have had successful careers had they played on good well coached and well drafted teams.

1) There is more to life, even as a professional athlete than money.

2) One can argue that he will loose out on much more by remaining the QB of a terrible franchise.

Also, don't lump me in with those people. Burrow will be long gone before the Saints draft and I'm not even sure the Saints would draft him. If he gets drafted by the Bengals, I'm pretty confident that he makes a go at it because that's the vibe you get from him. I'm just here pointing out that you're wrong.

How can you be so sure of that? We basically got lucky with Drew, and as talented as Taysom is, it appears that he's still going to be a backup/joker.

He developed Romo and tried to get Romo, but Dallas wouldn't trade him to us. Then we went after Drew and got him and took him to a completely different level. We were just lucky to have Drew for as many years as we have, but SP will get his guy and develop him whoever it is. I said in one of these other threads, and I think it was in reference to Taysom being the guy is that the only people freaking out about who is going to replace Brees is the fans.
