We need to sign Teddy Bridgewater before the draft and then offer Teddy, our 1st round draft pick and our 3rd round draft pick in order to get Cincinnati’s #1 draft pick and then draft Joe Burreaux!!!


  1. He is already better than almost half of the starting QB’s in the NFL.

  2. He has effectively been in the Saints Offense for 1 year at LSU’s Offense under former Saints Coach Joe Brady’s Offense.

  3. He has idolized Drew Brees since childhood and would have one year to be a “sponge” and learn all he could, (first hand) from Drew.

  4. He is a HERO to The State of Louisiana, almost like Drew was after the 2009 Super Bowl Season and would be a great marketing and ticket draw for the franchise.

  5. He has more potential of being a “Franchise” QB in the NFL than any other QB coming out of College in about 20 years.

  6. He is a born LEADER and is the “rising tide that lifts all of his teammates’ ships”!!!

  7. He would be the PERFECT replacement for Drew Brees when Drew retires.


LSU about to blow them out of the water
