It's not the end of the world

Nope, you're right not all 32 teams can have the best guard in the league at the same time - I stand corrected.

Wow is the only thing I can say on the matter. Hopefully everything turns out for the best.

The Saints still have until July 16 to work out a long-term accord with their record-breaking quarterback
Things will work out.

And Nicks can walk IMHO... Just like Faine, just like Goodwin and just like Kreutz.

Brees is the catalyst in this offense.

Which means they can't tag Carl Nicks and Marques Colston. Which means they will lose some key guys this offseason and maybe get worse. 1 or both will be gone. Somebody will want those players.

I cannot believe the poison coming out of the fans on this site. I know Drew Brees wants the money because I'm not naive, they all do. But maybe he does believe in keeping the team together too, however it is not down to him alone, other people have to do their bit. And when did this offer last year happen? I never heard anything about it and I never trust 'sources say...' news. I think we all wanted Brees to say 'I will take 1 million a year so you can keep all my teammates together and give them big money'. WHY SHOULD HE?! And who knows how the contracts were done and how Condon was manipulating the situation. I thought we were supposed to stand together in times of trouble but it seems to me that somebody is being vilified for asking for what he clearly deserves and I think they have treated him poorly. We were all saying how great this man is and what he means to the city and the people, and how he has raised the team and expectations to a level never before seen and what has been on his shoulders is immense...as long as he doesn't ask for money for it like any other player would. And anyone who doesn't believe he is about the team, you are fools. But he is allowed to look out for himself too. By the way, for those of you wishing ill on this man, shed your black and gold and walk away to Dallas, or maybe even Atlanta. We don't need fans like you. We are Black and Gold and, though understandably angry at what is going on with our beloved team, lets keep our heads about it please.

All these players are overpaid. What's the difference between 18 and 23 million. Once you make that much money, 5 million shouldn't matter. Greed is what I call it.

I think this is what people are having the hardest time with...the fact that Drew just may not be the person they thought he was.

The fact that he actually let the tag him is actually good for the Saints from a money stand point. They now have 5 mil extra.

The fact that people are going to be calling him an idiot for not signing earlier is not going to be good, but I don't think he ever wanted to sign a long term contract to stay in NO.

Maybe we can all lighten up on the Breesus thing now.


I have a new chant for Drew...


Drew: I WANT MY MONEY!

Team: HOW MUCH...5?

Drew: NO

Team: 10?

Drew: NO!

Team: 15?

Drew: NO!

Team: 18?

Drew: NO!

Drew: I WANT TO BE THE HIGHEST PAID NFL PLAYER...YEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!

Team: YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

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

I'm only shocked we had to tag Brees... beyond shocked actually. As for Nicks, I absolutely agree... we'll be just fine. We've always done a great job scouting talent on along the offensive line so I'm not at all concerned with it.

30 ppg is 30 ppg no matter how you dice it. We're good.
