Kudos to Saints

Give credit to the New Orleans Saints, they actually look they are trying to win.

Their signing of Drew Brees -- at least on paper -- appears to be a good thing. OK, so if his shoulder is damaged that could be a $10 million weight dragging the team down. But if he comes back healthy, Brees is an upgrade over Aaron Brooks. Something had to be done at that position.

Now, here is the catch. Just because the team has signed Brees doesn't mean it should trade the No. 2 pick in the draft. This is still a once in a decade chance to draft a franchise quarterback. Draft Matt Leinart. Bring him along slowly and when the time is ready, Brees can make an interesting bargaining chip.

But, knowing the Saints, they'll probably trade the No. 2 pick for the No. 17 pick and end up with the only defensive lineman from Georgia who can't play. Right?

Agreed, this is a good signing for the Saints. I just wouldn’t plan on the playoffs though.

This does remind me though of the best/worst signing of all NFL free agency this year.

Edgerrin James to the Cardinals - great for the Cards, a career killer for James!

NO ONE willingly chooses to go to the Cardinals, I mean no one!

There are only three reasons to go to the Cardinals; you're drafted and you don't have a choice (Larry Fitzgerald), you're looking to pad your stats at the end of your career (Emmitt Smith), or no one else will pay you to stink up their stadium (Kurt Warner).

Now we know of three things you can find buried in the deset, gambling cheats, dead mobsters and Edgerrin James.

Put your money where your keyboard is.
The Cardinals are going to the playoffs next year. The offense is going to be EXTREMELY tough to stop.
