THEY TAGGED HIM!!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Brees is a class act. You think he wants to be associated with this BS going on now with the Bounty thing? Maybe he doesn't even WANT to stay here no matter how much money they offer him. Maybe he ...

Brees is a class act. You think he wants to be associated with this BS going on now with the Bounty thing? Maybe he doesn't even WANT to stay here no matter how much money they offer him. Maybe he doesn't play for the franchise money just like he said he wouldn't. Can't blame him either. He's been betrayed by Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis. This has got to be the worst day in Saints HISTORY!

Brees is definitely without a doubt one of the best things that ever happened to us, but likewise, we were definitely one of the best things that ever happened to him too. There's really no excuse for this not getting worked out.

I am depressed.

We restructured Will Smith's contract. We could end up restructuring more contracts. I think Loomis has a plan of action for resigning Nicks and Colston, and I think we should let this play out before we start panicking.

Will y'all frickin' chill out? This is no big deal. All this does is buy time to work out a deal with Brees later. What it actually did was good for us. The $14-15 million cap hit from the tag is almost $10 less than what Condon was demanding. If Loomis had caved into Condon then there would be no way in hell of signing either Colston or Nicks. Now there is a decent chance to sign one, if not both of them.

This isn't a "nightmare" nor is it the "worst day in Saints history". It is simply business.

If Drew turns into the interception machine he was in 2010, he's gonna lose a boatload of money.

Without Nicks and Colston, I can definitely see this happening.

He may be millions cheaper next year.

And btw, the title of this post should be..

"WE TAGGED HIM!!!"

Besides Drew is really not that good. It is the system. He is an above average QB and would play like that in another system. In this system he is elite. If we get an average QB in this system he would be an above average QB.

Harsh but true.

I also am enjoying watching people flip over this.
It's business. I have faith Drew will be a Saint, I have faith Loomis will make the right decisions. I have faith we'll be a better team next year.

This franchise tag isn't the end of the world people.
