For starters, there has not been any updates to the Jimmy Graham case, but understand that a decision should be coming this week. It’s been a relatively quiet week in the world of the New Orleans Saints, but with minicamp and OTAs out-of-the-way, you can expect a ‘whole lot of nothing’.
The New Orleans Saints website is asking Who Dat Nation which regular season they would most like to attend if they only had their choice of one game for 2014. Personally, my vote is between San Francisco or Baltimore. It appears that everyone agreed.
New Orleans Saints fans voted the team’s game against the San Francisco 49ers on November 9 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as the regular season game they would want to attend the most this season, in a poll on the team’s website last week.
Rachel Whittaker | The Times-Picayune | Is New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees the best second-round draft pick ever?
But where does he rank among second-round NFL draft picks in history? He’s got some pretty stiff competition, including Brett Favre, also picked 33rd overall – in 1991 – by the Atlanta Falcons.
Brees is arguably one of the best draft picks in NFL History, but going up against Brett Favre is a tough one, at least at this point. Brees has several seasons (we hope) left in him, and by the end of it all, he could pass Brett Favre’s all-time passing record of 71,838 yards (Brees has 51,081 yards). Favre and Brees are equal in terms of Super Bowl rings, but Favre has an edge over Brees with two appearances. It’s a very interesting debate, but at this point, you have to give the edge to Favre.
