The Saints essentially are back to square one, having to find a way to build a team around a 40-year-old QB by moving around cap numbers and hoping their GM has the magic touch in the draft and with his free agents.
New Orleans is backed into a corner right now, but doing the same things it has been doing will not work. The Saints need radical changes, and those kinds of changes are hard for organizations to make.
But if the Saints ever want to get out of their seven-win rut, they need to make those changes next year, even if it means somebody other than Brees behind center.
After the display of actions that he did, it was pointed out and it was brought to my attention, Hughes said. I’m not sure that I understand it. We are the 2017 Buffalo Bills. We’re focused on the future. We’re focused on winning games. If he wants to offer anything of encouragement to our team, to our quarterbacks, to our offense, please provide all of that. We could use all the encouragement we need to figure out how they won games back in those days and be successful as they were. But we’re trying to bring a team together, we’re trying to bring a community together, we’re trying to bring a nation together. And by dividing us, by dividing the team, that doesn’t work.
Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who stood during the anthem Sunday, said after the game his teammates have yet to decide whether to continue their protest on Sunday against the Falcons. Taylor said he believed any protests must happen consistently in order to enact change in the country.
