I have 2nd pick - Brees or Brady

Postby SheLovesFootball » Mon Sep 03, 2012 5:35 am

Last year I earned trophy with Brees as my QB. I know Rodgers is going #1 and with 2nd pick I can take Breezy again or go with Brady. I am really torn. My league scoring favors QBs so I am opting for a top QB then settling in to nab RBs/WRs...

Concerned that no Sean Payton hurts Brees... bad NO D will potentially allow for optimum numbers as they may be playing catch up.. No bad weather games in dome...

Brady has oline issues but added studs at WR..throw in McDaniels as playcaller and BB with his foot on the gas and Brady can be great pick. Tough schedule though....

Can some one sway me to pick Brees or Brady?

Thanks for helpin' a gal out!

Brady. He wont have sevennhead coaches this year. Safer pick Imo. Last year the saints went for records.

I would never recommend taking a Qb #2, but if you are going to do it I would go with Brees

Thanks for both responses...

While I totally understand the strategy of going RB first...8 of the top 10 scorers were QBs in my league last year. Rice and McCoy were only two to be in top ten. And, now you have thrown a wrench in my works... HA! I had Rice last year and being a huge Ravens fan... it would be my homer pick and a good one to boot..

:~( now I am torn again!

Even if the top scorers were qbs that might not mean much. If its a one Qb league then there will only be ten starting g qbs. Rb is thin this year. If you don't get two top 15 guys I think your behind the eight ball.

Which of these do you like more?

Brady/Lynch
Rivers/Rice

Ahhhhh, makes so much sense.... I tried to guess and it looks like Eli would be my option as I would grab him in third round... Get RIce first followed up by next best WR?

Thanks again fellas! I do appreciate the thought provoking advice!!

If stuck on QB I would go with Brees but like said I would take a mid round QB and snag Rice/Foster or even Calvin Johnson in the #2 spot.
