    Re: Chargers might let Brees test free agency

    The Chargers will be making a mistake if they let him go. He did have the same surgery as Pennington, but he has proven to be better then Pennington before either of their surgeries. Phillip Rivers is a gamble. Sure he was great in college, but so was Chris Weinke and Jason White. I dont think you take that gamble if you are the Chargers who were arguably the best team to not make the playoffs. Why risk letting him go and having to start again with Rivers. Even tho he has been there long enough to learn the program, he is not a guranteed stud like Brees is.

    i don't think were going to need brees if c-pep returns...so i'll think he'l be al little to expensive for a backup....or does BJ cost even more than brees would? if it's like that, trade B.j and sign brees
    From what I've read, Brad doesn't cost nearly as much as Brees would.

    Don't need him,don't want him !! With Culpepper and Johnson, the last thing we need is another QB.

    If you pick him up, you are taking a huge risk.

    If I am not mistaken, he had the same surgery that Pennington had and Pennington didn't fair to well. Chad P's problem might have been trying to come back too soon, kind of like Birk's injury, he didn't give it the proper time to fully heal. But anyway, Chad is not looking too good and neither is Drew at this point.
    same injury as pennington? thats enough reason to not want brees

    I didn't realize that they had the same surgery. That's way too big of a risk to bring in Brees in that case.

    Re: Chargers might let Brees test free agency

    In either case we are taking a gamble. Whether it's keeping Culpepper with his injury, or going for Brees with his...Let's just save time and keep our own injured QB and see how that goes.

    There's other QB's out there other than Brees... I say we go for one of them...
