    Originally read this on the UT forum, but I thought I'd add it here for discussion. Thoughts?

    It was my understanding that Culpepper's injury was worse than Bree's. This wreaks of Dolphin PR. They have to save face to their fans. The quote that catches my eye is that you don't throw with your knee, but then again, your shoulder doesn't have to support you either. Whatever. Brees is gone, so it's pointless anyway. It's Rivers time here now.

    I think Miami will end up regretting the choice.

    Drew would have been better suited for Miami, but I can understand why they didn't want to shell out 10 mil for Drew. It's just too big of a risk for someone who may not even play much next year.

    I have heard the opposite that Drew chose the saints over Miami leaving the Dolphins having to go with Culpepper. But I doubt if we will ever truely know what happened, other than the Saints got a darn good QB in my opinion...

    Everyone says Gates made Brees. I think they made each other.
