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.
