Why is everyone saying Brees is selfish/greedy?

Why isn't anyBrone saying anything about Nicks demanding more money than Evans?

Why isn't anyone saying anything about Colston's 'No hometown discount' quote?

They all are deserve to be paid, but we all know that Brees is the engine that makes the Saints machine work.

I don't care if paying Brees hair-lips the Pope, PAY THE MAN!!

lb for lb, Brees is the best QB over the last 6 seasons. Anyway it's disected, he should be the highest paid QB in the NFL. On the other hand, QB is just one one position. Give him the loot and the rest of the team suffers. Defense, special teams....Saints will become a one trick poney. Great scoring ability but everything else will be sub par. Pay him what he wants and the reprocussions will be more sacks, busted defensive plays, and more weight for Brees to carry the team on his lonely. With all the endorsements, what difference does a 3-4 million honestly make. The majority of the players aren't getting cough drop and diaper paychecks. I understand the situation but the big picture is, it's a team game, not an idividual effort like baseball as Wade Boggs use to say. He may the best QB in the game but he can't do it by himself.

Do you not have a clue? Brees isn't doing any of this. It is Tom Condon, his agent. The player agrees to be TOTALLY hands off once contract negotiations begin. You can try to be pissed at Condon if you wish, but he's just doing his job, too.

As I have tried to explain on this board many times, Condon represents Carl Nicks, as well. Condon surely knew that the Saints could not absorb a $24 million hit per year for the first three years of a contract. He did that to force the Saints to use the tag on Brees, thus letting his other client, Nicks, hit the open market.

A deal will get done.

Grow up, y'all. Get with the program. These things are not as simple as you might think.

I am ashamed to read this crap y'all are spouting with no clue how things work. Do you want to drive Drew away? Keep this **** up.

He has already leaked word that he feels confident a deal will be made. I'm sure that Condon wasn't happy about that.

Dammit, get with the program. Support the team and our QB. They will be together for years to come.

:mad:

Why is everyone saying Brees is selfish/greedy?
Because alot of articles ave mentioned it... Brees hasn't said anything to squash it

Why isn't anyBrone saying anything about Nicks demanding more money than Evans?
Nicks commented on it himself. He says inflation

Why isn't anyone saying anything about Colston's 'No hometown discount' quote?
He isn't asking 23 million a year plus wasn't given a chance to be the highest paid QB/player in history

They all are deserve to be paid, but we all know that Brees is the engine that makes the Saints machine work.
Saints need a 53 man roster... Not just 1 makes it work

I don't care if paying Brees hair-lips the Pope, PAY THE MAN!!

More money, more problems

I've tried to stay positive all offseason but Drew's contract and this "bounty" BS sure have made it hard.

He's right, Drew's greed will/could cost the Saints their talented free agents this year
