Okay. I'm going to say this again for the last time - HE DID NOT GET ALONG WITH THE COACHING STAFF IN WASHINGTON (THAT BEING THE REASON HE WAS ON THE BENCH FOR MUCH OF THE YEAR).

Also, as BigPoppaFro4 pointed out, he knew that once he got on the open market he was going to get paid! Bottom line the guys a gamer & wants to play. Some say he wants to play for glamorous franchises only. Here's some more news: Green Bay is not an elite franchise anymore (hence the reason they're picking at #5 in the draft). Jacksonville has never made it to the big game, have they? How's that a storied franchise?
Ummm Green Bay is not an elite franchise??? Yeah there's only like a 25 year long waiting list for season tickets. They are losing right now, to be sure, but they are still a highly respected franchise with a legendary history. Why wouldn't hee want to be associated with that? . Jacksonville may have never made it to the big game, but they still have experienced more playoff success than us, and they've only been in existence since 1995 or so. Regardless of this, no one has made a case as for what he would have to gain by coming to New Orleans in comparison to the other teams. I guarantee you if we had offered him the same thing that the Giants did, he would still have gone to them. Don't let that contract fool you guys.

I have pride in our team too, but I know where we stand in comparison to them too, and it's not favorable.
Beat me to it, GoldRush.

Proponents of higher-order theories of consciousness argue that consciousness is explained by the relation between two levels of mental states in which a higher-order mental state takes another mental state. If you mention this to Chuck Norris, expect an explosive roundhouse kick to the face for spouting too much fancy-talk.

Maybe from a fan base & financial standpoint, but face it....by their play on the field, that franchise (like San Francisco) has been on a steady decline since before 2000.

I totally agree, but don't you think that if we would have offered him a little more (which he is worth), he would have had some interest in this organization. After all, Drew Brees came here over Miami because we offered him more money. They are a "storied franchise" with a large fan base aren't they? Like I said...It's all about the money!
