You know that for a fact?

One of the reasons I was happy we got him, was because of when we picked him in the draft, he was practically a freebie, oh well, easy come, easy go

As far as Brees never winning here, you dont know that. We will never know. What we do know is we never got to the bowl game. Which = failure. Brees = super bowl winner.

Its always a risk, but so is a new untested QB.

We arent talking about some avg joe QB either.

Drew Christopher Brees (/ˈbrs/;[1] born January 15, 1979)
Brees has been selected to the Pro Bowl six times in his career – with the Chargers in 2004 and the Saints in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. He was the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year in 2004, the National Football League Offensive Player of the Year in 2008 & 2011, and the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV. During his Super Bowl victory in 2009, Brees tied a record for most completions in a Super Bowl with 32 (Super Bowl XLIV; tied with Tom Brady). Brees is the only quarterback in NFL history to reach 400+ yards passing in consecutive playoff games, which he has done in three straight postseason games (2010 vs. Seattle; 2011 vs. Detroit; 2011 vs. San Francisco). He was also selected by voters to appear on the cover of EA Sports' Madden NFL 11.[2] Sports Illustrated named him as its 2010 Sportsman of the Year.[3]
Brees holds the NFL single-season record for most passing yards in a season by a quarterback, with 5,476 yards, which he accomplished during the 2011 season. That year Brees also set NFL records for highest completion percentage in a season – 71.2%, most 300+ yard passing games in a season – 13, and most completions in a season – 468. Brees has the highest career completion percentage among all quarterbacks in NFL history with at least 2,500+ attempts – 65.7%.[4] He also has the highest career post-season completion percentage – 66.8%. Brees is currently the leader of most consecutive games with at least 1 TD pass – 53 (2009–present) surpassing Johnny Unitas, who threw a touchdown pass in 47 consecutive games (between 1956–1960, a record he held for 52 years). Brees is the fastest player in NFL history to reach 40,000 yards passing.[5] He is also the all-time NFL leader in career passing yards per game.[6]
