This is more than likely. However I've found it interesting that how sensitive people are seems to be in direct correlation to how the team is doing. Last year during the 13-0 streak it was pretty hard to get people too worked up so to speak. Then, after we lost a few, emotions seemed to run tighter. But during the playoffs and SB run, everyone was chummy again. Previous years seemed to be that way as well. Probably an oversimplification, but that's my take.

It might not be as serious as this guy says but something is a miss in brees' game, take the pick vs steelers, the long pass drew could make with his eyes closed in 2008 and 2009 season, seemed like he is underthrowing deep routes, which could be due to a injured knee and not being able to plant properly.

Coach Sean Payton called a report that Drew Brees was hiding a fracture and a torn meniscus in his left knee "inaccurate" and "completely false."

Kenny Wilkerson of WIST radio was adamant that his source was impeccable and the report correct. There were rumors at the time (Week 3) that Brees' knee injury was more serious than the Saints were letting on. Payton does have a record of being less than forthcoming with injury information. Whatever the case, the injury wasn't serious enough to knock Brees out of the lineup and he's now over the worst of it.


Hopefully we can all breathe a sigh of relief!!

Not trying to hate but didn't Kenny Wilkerson get kicked off team property when Sean Peyton found out he was bribing insiders for info? Or he was selling info?

I think this is dangerous and could get someone fired inside the organization, true or not. Also, suspect Wilkerson is playing this up for his own publicity. Just trying to point this out. Don't know if it's true or not.

Highly dubious. Impeccable sources might have been trying to smoke him out as a rat.

is'nt wilkerson a employee of the saints, anyway if the kicking field goals is true its all bs. but all the under thrown balls is still suspect. especially the meachum one where if drew hits him in stride its a 60 yd td.
