We had first round byes both those seasons. In 2006, we beat the Eagles (1), lost to the Bears. In 2009, we beat the Cardinals (2), Vikings (3), and Colts (4).

I do believe you are right...I just am not sure if he will get it as a member of the NO Saints. If you are Mickey Loomis, you have to be able to see what is happening in Dallas. I don't know how much more JJ can take. I know he doesn't like being shown on national TV in the 1st half smoking and joking and then the look of death at the end of the 4th quarter.

My fear is that NO will not come close to paying Drew what JJ will pay him and Drew knows this.

I suppose they have the franchise tag that they could put on him, but I'm pretty sure that Drew was fighting that very thing just before they resolved the CBA thing.

I'm just thinking out-loud, here, but the chips are falling in a way that could set-up something like this happening...and God forbid if they should persuade Sean to come over and work for the team that is in the same town that his house is in...the team that he has in his contract that he could break his contract for.

Personally, I was hoping that Tony would take the Cowboys to the NFCCG only to lose to the Saints. That would make JJ look pretty silly if he cleaned-house after a year like that...but so far it ain't happening like that.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Yep, money ruins everything. And it may ruin our opinion of him before it's over.

Can't diminish what he's done, but he's mortal just like the rest of us, fellas.

NO ONE deserves anything...

He is as good as any other quarterback in the league and is the anchor of the team. No brainer, he gets paid.
