He more than likely wouldn't have had the same success in Miami as NO. He and Peyton were a match made in heaven. But I was still highly pissed when they took Culpepper instead of him. He's even a Purdue alum like Griese.
There was a point late in the playoff loss to the Bucs this year where they went to a shot of Brees on the bench. Looking around and taking it all in. I knew it was it for him then, you could see it on his face.
