Did you hear Rivers after last night's game finally answering a question about letting go of Sproles? Sanders said "Bet you miss Sproles now". Rivers said, affirmatively: "No doubt". Then, said he "pulls" for both Brees and Sproles.

Shut up.

I mean Reggie had a career year with the MIA (1,086 yards rushing & 296 yard receiving with 7 TDs combined) and if the picks traded was performance based, I guess it might be good news for the Saints?!
There was a thread in the last couple of months implying there was no extras for Bush exceeding 1000 yards etc.

Sorry I do not know how to search for the thread.

That's OK, I must have missed it myself.

In any case the Saints at least shed his salary, which enabled them to sign Sproles, and the guy they got directly in the trade made the onside kick catch against the Lions. So all in all a good trade.

First of all, its SP's wife that lives in Dallas. Its not as if Sean is commuting or something, this actually gives him more time to concentrate on the team.
Secondly LaDainian's Mom nailed it. SD was in a hurry, it cost them.
Lastly, SP and Bree's aren't going anywhere, even if they don't have new contracts. All that was put aside until after the season. I'm sure they will be amply rewarded plus, they know what they have in NO is extremely rare and special. You can't buy it in a bottle.

The following is pure "educated speculation" on my part...but I think I, if noboby else, am about to find out just how "great" these 2 guys, Sean and Drew, are. There's no doubt about the talent and genius of both of those 2 guys...but where my doubt lies is how both are affected by the almighty dollar.

Everything that we didn't want to happen in Dallas happened. Romo chokes again. JJ out of the playoffs again. Having people posting pictures of him picking boogers probably isn't going to help his disposition.

Anyway...the stage is set. Payton already lives in Dallas and has it in his contract that he can break his present contract to go to work for JJ. Drew has not re-signed yet. I know you guys see where I'm going with this, but I also acknowledge that I could be way, way off base. Time will tell, and I hope my speculation is utter nonsense.

This whole post is just full of negativity.

SP already signed a new multi-year contract and Brees will probably be franchise tagged if they can't reach a consensus on his new deal. Which could be for the best, because Nicks will be probably asking for about 8M/year contract to stay with NO and match Evans' contract.
