    Default Hypothetical: Brees for #1

    I know it is not going to happen, but reading that Brees and the Saints were far apart on negotiations got me thinking.

    Hypothetically, would you do Brees (signed to a long-term contract) for the #1? One the one hand, Luck must be a decade younger than Drew. On the other hand Luck's ceiling can't be higher than Brees, right? And there is always risk with an unknown commodity like Luck.

    Lucks' ceiling is definitely above Drew Brees. I would be angry if Colts did that trade... Mine as well just re-sign manning if you dont take Luck

    trading for brees, who is 33 years old, wouldn't make sense unless you could rebuild the team into a contender and quickly.

    The money you'd have to spend on Brees would hurt the Colts chances of quickly filling out the rest of a depleted roster.

    Nah not going to work,

    Might as well trade STL for Bradford and Safford and their first, then trade Bradford to Cleveland for their 23rd and 2nd round pick.

    You end up with Griffin Safford LT whatever his name is, Michael Floyd with the 23rd pick, Ta'amu with the 2nd rounder of Cleveland.

    hmmm...i'm torn, though the poll results are lopsided...

    that said, anyone arguing that Manning should be kept over Luck should favor this Brees trade as well...

    By the way, I read something that NO wants to pay Brees as a "very good" but not "great" QB...so the ish may hit the fan here yet...

    You mean N.O. should do this? But then who's their QB? Chase Daniel?

    A lot of the stuff I have heard has said Luck could end up being at least something similar to Peyton.

    I'd say just keep the pick. Give Peyton another chance, you know what you have in him if he's healthy, and we'd be able to keep Luck as well.

    I like Brees but no thanks, and like you said, it probably wouldn't happen anyway. He's staying in NOLA.

    If we had the pieces to run for a superbowl in a year or 2 then yes, you pull the trigger. But we pretty much have to build up EVERY position. You take your new (hopefully) franchise quarterback and build around him. It's going to be a few seasons before we turn into a winning franchise again.

    Brees will get franchised if no deal's reached. He's a Saint next year. Hypothetically, Luck for Breesus? No. Not with this roster.

    Well then who's our QB? I get we are both Purdue fans, but I don't think Painter is the answer...

    If you can guarantee Manning has 5 good years left in him, then OK. Problem seems to be that the risk that he never recovers is too great.

    RG3 is our QB,

    So this is the deal

    Indy trades #1 overall to STL recieves Sam Bradford, Roger Saffold and STL's 1st

    Rams receive #1 overall and take Luck.


    We then trade Sam Bradford to Cleveland for the 23 pick and 2nd and 5th round pick.

    We now have the #2 pick Roger Saffold, #23 pick, #36 pick, and the Cleveland 5th round pick.

    With these Picks combined with our other first 3 rounds we select:

    #2 RG3 #23 Michael Floyd, #32 Harrison Smith #36 Ta'amu add a CB in the 5th along with Saffold we come out looking pretty good.

    You are right about that. Brees is one of the best three QB's in the game right now. The others have not and who knows, they may never throw and NFL pass.....

    And by the time Colts filled up the rest of the roster with talent, Brees wouldn't be throwing another pass.

    Sorry guys. I'm a big-time Brees homer and Purdue grad. I would make the trade and try a couple more runs with the current squad.

    I find it interesting that anyone who disagrees with whatever you have to say feels free to call you a troll... If this is the case, then every single poster on this forum is a troll because somewhere, there is someone who disagrees with them.....

    Obviously you haven't seen me post. This is the first time I've ever said such a thing. I don't say/write something without meaning it.

    How in any world does trading a first for Brees make sense? Seriously, enlighten me.

    Well, that is easy.... You can have one of the three or four best QBs in the game at the apex of his career or you can take an unproven 50-50 QB with questionable arm strength..... How does not taking Brees make any sense. Do you want to win or do you want to bring up the rear for the next five years.....
