Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; washingtonpost.com What the hell are you doing focusing on this? Isn't there a little more time, say, in late February, when you could spare a few brainwaves for this issue? The NFL wants a subtle clarification of the property rights ...

Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

washingtonpost.com

What the hell are you doing focusing on this? Isn't there a little more time, say, in late February, when you could spare a few brainwaves for this issue?

The NFL wants a subtle clarification of the property rights laws. This is not something one would see in a defensive secondary or a playbook.

Furthermore, unless you can state what it is exactly that will make the league more or less competitive by NFL challenge, then STAY OUT OF THE DISCUSSION. You failed to do this on both ends.

Jeez. Win baby, just freakin win.

Re: Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

This is the kind of crap I've been talking about for the last few weeks. These guys are being way too distracted making commercials, going on Leno and all that other crap. Now this! This kind of junk can't wait three or four more weeks? Can't sombody petition the Supreme Court to delay this court date for a few weeks? Holy cow Drew, this is what you've worked your whole life for.

I'm sorry, but I see no problem with this at all. Drew Brees is an intelligent, articulate individual who is quite capable of sitting down and writing a short letter without it affecting his whole mindset. Relax. Many other players would be more distracted trying to order breakfast at McDonald's.

Agreed. What, Drew has ADD and can't focus?

Re: Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

Im starting to focus on Zoey now. You know she's really pre.... SLAAAAAAP! nono Baby, I ...well, if you compare her wholesomeness to the girl on Mathius av. with those nice big boo---SLAAAAAAP! nono, I just mean, you know, theyre all hanging ou----POW! I wasnt looking at them, I just saw. . . accidently... (stare) nevermind.

ok, we can go home now.


Count me in the This Is No Problem camp. I think we're under a misconception that players do crunches for 5 hours, then spend another 6 on film study, and then sit in a dark room another 2 "focusing" on the next game. Its not like he's out clubbing, shooting himself in the leg***, & being dubiously close to mysterious stabbings, etc. I mean these guys have a life, and they can multi-task. I think we would be surprised how much time they spend playing Madden, and watching movies. Hebert and Gajan used to fish. Bum rode cutting horses.

I dont even know if I agree with his stance, but he's a good writer. good communicator.

*** I think Plaxico's sentence was complete bull****.

Re: Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil* is that good men** do nothing." quote from Edmund Burke.

*Evil > tyranny > aka Supreme Court.
** Good men > Leader > aka Drew Brees.

I'm OK with Brees exercising his God given ability as a leader on this matter. If this is how he chooses to spend his down-time then he has my blessing. Now if the Supreme Court summons him to come give a deposition on the matter during the playoffs... then I take issue. But basically all Drew did here was submit an op-ed piece to the Washington Post, and it probably took him less time to write it than it did for me to write this post.

But I'm OK too with Xan bringing this up for discussion because he's a concerned Whodat!

Re: Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

My thought on this is....Mathius should bring back his previous Avatar. Otherwise, this article should have no affect on the game at all. If anything it was something that was probably on Drew's mind, so getting it off his chest helped. It directly impacts his "workplace", so he has the right.
