They had the #2 draft pick and could have picked Leinart, Young or Cutler. As a matter of fact a large fraction of Saints fans wanted the "safer" choice Leinart. They could also have traded for a QB. Before Brees became a free agent, Sean Payton tried to trade for Romo from Dallas.

In some ways Leinart (at least on paper) was a safer choice. He had success in college and wasn't injured.

But football aside - none of the forementioned QB's would have had even a tiny fraction of the success Brees have had OFF the field.
