I'm just absolutely stunned that a team that needs to be in "win-now" mode considering the age of their starting quarterback didn't take a chance on a backup that they decided against drafting before he was an alcoholic burnout with a passing interest in playing football! The Saints championship window is closing and they didn't have the foresight to add someone that would keep it cracked open (to blow varying kinds of smoke out of it)?
