Here's my question....one day when Drew Brees retires, do u think he will become a quarterback coach for the Saints (or other team)? Thanks. - Cheryl C

That's a good one. I'm not really sure to be honest, though we're going to find out sooner than later unfortunately. I don't know why but I don't see him coaching. It seems the players that have the hall of fame careers either don't go into coaching or aren't very good at it. If he was going to be involved with the NFL at all after retiring, I see him more as a front office executive, like John Elway. Otherwise, I see him continuing in the business world.

Fist fight with any Saint on the d line. Who would you take and why? - Quick D.

Not that I would ever, ever, ever want to get into a fist fight with any player on the Saints, let alone a defensive linemen, but I would have to say John Jenkins. Why did I just pick the biggest dude on the team who weighs a whopping 359 pounds? Because he's probably the easiest to run away from.

In this day and age of teams demanding new stadiums every decade or so, what do you think the chances are that the Superdome is considered the "forever home" of the Saints, much like Soldier Field to the Bears? - Rick L.

New Orleans is a tourist city. It's economy relies heavily on large sporting events. NOLA needs to host Super Bowls much more than a city like Chicago. As long as that's true, I'd imagine they would do anything to land those sporting events. It's looking more and more likely that a new stadium is what it might take to get New Orleans back in the running. Even in the off chance they were awarded a "pity" Super Bowl, they won't be considered for the regular rotation, in addition to any other cities who build their own new stadiums. By the way, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is the 8th oldest stadium in the league. There are seven stadiums in warm weather climates or with retractable/domed roofs all built since 2002.

Not including Jacoby Fleener, will Cooks/Snead/Thomas/RJ Harris be able to provide adequate targets for Brees? Or do the Saints need to be looking for veteran help beyond Vincent Brown and Anquan Bolder? - Stuart J

Okay, well first of all I don't know why you included R.J. Harris on your list there. But I think for me the x-factor is Michael Thomas. If he's as good as the hype, it changes everything and definitely makes me feel more confident about the passing attack. Don't forget there will be some no name receiver that bursts onto the scene and surprises everyone. I'm not sure why you're worried about this anyway. The Saints have finished 1st, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, and 1st in passing yards per game for the last five years. It will all work out. Just keep worrying about the defense.

How many of the other 31 SB Nation NFL team site administrators have you met in real life and which one would you choose to bunk with, if on a retreat with 16 bunk beds? - Cold P.

I have met Joel Thorman from Arrowhead Pride and Dane Noble from Windy City Gridiron. I have also met Brad Wells who used to be in charge at Stampede Blue before moving on. I would probably bunk with Dane.
