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

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.
I agree, with a winning record it's way too soon to talk about benching him. Resting him for later ala Payton Manning is what this article is suggesting though.

Having said that, the last two wins have been ugly come-from-behind dumpster fires in what were supposed to be gimme's. Where Brees struggled to get it together in the first half. If we start losing, well, the season is more important than one man.

Logic is flawed.

Drew had 5 games off last season and was criticized as exhausted in playoffs.

How will 4 games this year be better?
That exhausted thing is so overblown and has absolutely no truth to it. Ask Drew and he'll probably laugh in your face.

The offensive line invariably plays poorly in the playoffs (compared to the regular season) and is the crux of our problems on offense.

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!
Well, because TH isn’t really number 2. Plus SP has has “common sense “

Embarrassing Saints fan logic, found right here on the SSF in the last couple of years:

"Let's sign a petition and file a lawsuit over the unfair outcome of a playoff game! They should restart the game in the 4th quarter, even though it's been like 4 days after the game has ended!"

"It's time to hand it over to Taysom Hill, because he completed that one pass downfield against the Vikings in the playoff game...... plus he ran around a lot and it was pretty exciting. Therefore, he's ready to be a 16-game starter!!"

"Remember how we went 5-0 with Teddy Bridgewater last year? I bet the same thing could totally happen with another former starting QB on our team this year!"

"Remember that time Gary Kubiak benched Peyton Manning for some games after he completed 5 of 20 passes and threw 4 interceptions in the same game ???? Therefore, the clear and obvious blueprint to winning a Super Bowl with a future Hall of Fame quarterback at the end of his career is to bench him for multiple games......whether his play actually warrants it or not!"

If Jameis goes 4-0 during stretch and lights it up, I don't think Drew gets his job back.
And monkeys and donkeys can fly.

Jameis going 4-0 as a pee-wee league QB, would be momentous, much less 4-0 in a 4 game stretch of NFL games. And anyone else suggesting we start Hill the next 4 games, is equally dumb!

I know Drew is not the same QB he once was and I have been very critical of that fact. BUT, it is more on the coaching staff, he is still the QB. The fact this staff has done ZERO, to draft the heir to Drew, is where the fault lies.

Drew, unfortunately, is the best we have ATM. We need to live and deal with it.

There's a LOT of truth to it. There's a reason almost everyone says it, because they see it in his throwing and energy. Also no competitive man like Drew would admit his own failings, so nope not gonna "ask Drew" about this one.

Load balancing is an interesting idea, but with so few games in an nfl season and wins not guaranteed, I think this is a bad idea. Sit Brees if/when the games are meaningless.

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.....
Yes, but Teddy was #2 on the depth chart then, not Taysom Hill. So it is really hard to say what would happen unless it actually happens. God forbid. If it happened today, Taysom is listed as #2 on the depth chart.

What I would actually love to see is JW get the opportunity to play Taysom's QB role on the team, getting about 5 snaps a game. With Taysom, there is a 99% chance it will be a running play, with 90% him keeping the ball. If JW were to get those same snaps, you could really open up the playbook to pass, run or keep....a true option QB if so desired for those special plays. Either way, unless he is used this season in some capacity, it will be hard to decide whether or not to resign him as the future.

So you are calling me dumb?
