Drew Brees strikes again !!!

The Saints can thank Drew Brees for Steve Spagnuolo. The Saints’ new defensive coordinator had his choice of a number of jobs. Among the other teams that either were in hot pursuit or had expressed interest were the Eagles, Falcons, Colts, Bucs and Vikings. It came down to choosing between the Eagles and Saints, and Spags picked Brees over Michael Vick. Why? An offense that scores 38.5 points per game can make a defensive coordinator look pretty smart.

He chose the Saints because he's not retarded. (No offense to any retarded people on here). But why go to the "Dream Team" when he can go to the "Real Team"?

(All comment directed at persons of a retarded nature do not reflect the opinion of blackandgold.com)

I love the dude in the comments who said
