I'd be shocked if Teddy waited the 2-3 years for Brees to leave. Brees, if I had to guess, is going to keep playing because of Brady. Teddy's going to get offers to start and paid in the range of $30 million/year. Teddy's no fool. 

$30 Million?

I think he would be lucky to get something in the range of Foles.

Brees is probably a little better than Bridgewater right now, but what about this question. Would the Saints be better off if Brees retired after the season? Bridgewater's not going to want to be a backup for another year, it's possible but not likely.

If I was a Bear fan.... I think every time Trubisky threw the ball and I would think back to the draft and think "we traded up a spot needlessly to get him while Mahomes went 8 spots later." and it would pain me. 

Every.......single.............time.

Put Mahomes on the Bears and would he look as good?

Credit to the NFL for taking the time to review the onside kick recovery by the Bears. These are the kind of calls that need to be correct.

Definitely don't need to explain what defensive or offensive pass interference entails nor what the review standard is.

Just sorta wing it on those.

But this -- ahhh, yes. Exactly.

They also passed on Watson who went 2 spots after Mahomes at 12.

As good? No. But as a Raider fan, it gives me no pleasure to say that that muppet sounding kid is legit. He literally may end up unseating Brady as GOAT if he continues on the trajectory he is on now.

Another thing to think about though is that you might have a different HC too. I think Mahomes made Nagy a HC. Not Nagy making Mahomes a steller QB. 

And I never had faith in Trubisky. I think the reason we agreed to send Mack to the Bears was based on betting against Tribusky and getting higher draft picks from it.

Jimmy G is making $26 million and has done less. Starting pay for a decent vet QB in the NFL now is $25/million . He's winning and showing well. $30 million isn't out of the question. It might be for fewer years but it'll be mostly guaranteed.

I think Brees finishes this year and maybe one more.  But we’ll see.

This team is stacked to win now. You keep the HoF QB as long as he wants to play in that window if he still has it.

I see that argument for sure. But good Qb's are hard to find and Brees is on his last legs.  Probably won't happen - unless Brees retires on his own - but there's an argument to be made to turn things over to Bridgewater.
