Saints Nation: Who Will Be Brees' Backup in 2013? | Site
Every time this discussion comes up, I feel it is accompanied by the caveat that we hope this player will never get to see the field. If he does, the season has no hope. The Saints' chance at success starts and ends with Drew Brees' health. But while any hope at a second Super Bowl hinges on him playing, there's a reason the Saints keep two quarterbacks on the roster and with Chase Daniel bolting for Kansas City there's a lot of uncertainty with who will win the backup job for the first time in a while.
