Folks remember the circumstances here, Brees had just undergone shoulder surgery in which his shoulder was a complete mess. Most teams would have passed on him. Culpepper was coming off a knee injury which I mean, you generally see athletes successfully come back from.
Also, just because Brees was successful with the Saints doesn't mean he would have enjoyed that success with us. In New Orleans he got to work with the offensive genius that is Sean Payton meanwhile he wouldn't have had nearly that type of situation in Miami. Most likely Saban still would have bailed leading to the continued disarray the franchise went into after that. It's more likely Brees would have been cut 2/3 years after, if that long, than having the same level of success he had with New Orleans.
We need to prevent this from happening to Tua. He's THE ONE, the one who's to truly succeed "Dan the Man." They need to protect him with a sense of urgency!
Regardless of injuries (which they both had pretty serious injuries) Drew Brees was always my preference and I was so disappointed when we decided to trade for Culpepper who had one or two good years but I was never a fan of his and thought he was overrated. Conversely, I was a big time Drew Brees fan.
But I understand the point you are trying to make and its definitely something to think about, however; I think Drew Brees would have had some success here, definitely a lot more than Culpepper.
