The title got my attention but I went into reading the article with a Very negative attitude. I was surprised and Foxworthy and 4 other jocks brought-up some excellent points. I'll do my best to summarize

1) Foxworthy: Start Winston for the 4-game stretch of 49ers, Falcons, Denver, Falcons
2) Drew has tired each of the last 3-years heading into the playoffs. It would probably help him to have 2-4 games off. And Drew can always come off the bench if necessary
3) The offense needs to have more than 1-player disrupting the opponent defenses: Kamara. Winston would bring the bomb and downfield game back including other players besides Alvin. His point was that defenses will start stacking against Kamara as the season goes on without some changes
4) One of the reporters had a conversation about Brees load with SP during the offseason and asked if SP was going to try and balance Brees load so he is fresh in the offseason. The reporter said it sounded like Payton listened but couldn't tell if he really bought into that idea

Start Winston for 4-Games to Protect Brees Endurance for Playoffs and Open the Offense

You ACTUALLY think Taysom Hill would get the nod over Jamies Winston if Drew went down for a long period of time? well, I guess we don't have an example of this ever happening so.....
To SP outdoor start Taysom Hill over Winston, yes! He has been told he is he a ju- and is listed as the number 2 QB. What makes you think SP would not do this? He’s been grooming this guy for three years. if it does not work out then he would move on and Taysom would know he’s not an nfl QB.

I find it absolutely hilarious that people were busting on Winston as late as last year for being a dumpster fire, but now they want to replace Brees with him. I'm ready for Brees to retire so the same people can claw their eyes out with a 20's something QB that's not as good as Brees is right now. Next year, when our offense is like 15th in the league in everything, I'm gonna gloat so hard about this.

There is no easy stretch in the NFL. I don't agree with what Foxworth is saying. The can rest Drew's arm by running the ball. I wouldn't start Winston or Taysom Hill until the Saints are eliminated from playoff contention.
This exactly. Run the damn ball.

Brees' first 5 seasons - 12,348 yards. 80 TD, 53 INT. 1.5 TD- INT ratio.

Winston's first 5 seasons - 19737 yards, 121 TDs, 88 INT. 1.38 TD-INT ratio.
That says it all right there. And he's just 26 years old, and he's sitting right on our bench. People talk about this kid like he's trash or something, I just don't get it.

Because a lot of people on these forums seen how he's won games for the Saints as a Buccaneer.
His Buccanners team sucked, and it's not just the team. The entire culture down there is trash and the front office is a MESS. Tom Brady is finding that out real quick.

Also since you refuse to take my word for it:


Bruce Arians makes good quarterbacks look bad, he just does.

I agree that FO is trash, but TB has had a talented team for years. Winston has shown himself to be a headcase himself over the years. I remember when he picked a fight with Lattimore. No way would I trust him over Brees.

Could say something right now but I won't. It's just amazing how guys like Winston and Cam Newton are held to a different standard as quarterbacks for some strange reason...

My problem with this line of though is Taysom Hill is our #2 not Winston. What makes a one think SP would go back on s word to Hil!
LOL. Wait, you are being sarcastic, right? Or did we go back in time to the year 2018 when people actually spoke of such silliness?

I wouldn't bench Drew Brees for anyone in the league right now. It's more than likely his last year and he's not playing like sheet. He's not why we're losing. Why risk that on someone untested and unproven in this offense?

As far as any assumptions you may have, I don't think anybody is saying Patrick Mahomes or Lamar Jackson can't ball out.

We're not talking about "benching" Drew Brees right now. But if you wouldn't bench him for "anyone" in the hypothetical then you're a super Brees fan for sure.

I love Brees. In his last year, as strong of a team leader he's been and how much of a hand he's put into making this offense be what it is? I'd just find it disrespectful to do it. If he was playing like he deserves to be benched? Yeah I'd want him benched. If he was a FA and we had a choice between Brees and a better QB I'd want a better QB. But to flat out bench him? No.
