this guy is really starting to be something else

More copy and paste journalism. I'm starting to think Pat Yasinskas (or whatever the hell his name is) is actually writing all this stuff and publishing under assumed names.

Really don't know which stories to believe anymore, this is all getting way out of hand.
Everybody is blaming us saying that we didn't offer him enough, we offered him the chance to be the highest paid player in the league and it wasn't enough for him.

Look at Eli manning - 2 SB's now - he just restructured his contract to keep the giants below the cap and make their team better

Drew Brees - yeah he's a better QB than eli but he could really take a note out of Mannings book if he really cared about a "team friendly deal" what a joke

They're just regurgitating what Duncan is speculating.

I don't think he will sign the tender either, but I also don't think he will sit out of workouts for more than a week or something without signing the long-term deal

I said in the beginning no way Brees signs it. What Team would do that to their best player with some years left...they'll work it out. Both parties have a lot on the table. Saints need Brees to stay a viable contender. Brees is aiming for his likely last contract not to mention all those endorsements that will likely start drying up with the recent events. This situation, if not resolved will make him even less marketable. They'll get it done. Nobody wins if they don't.

Even in the unlikely event IF it actually comes to pass that he sits out for the early offseason workouts, which I don't think will happen, I can almost guarantee you that Drew will be doing his own workouts and his own prep, on his own, just like he organized during the lockout --that's the kind of player he is, he's fiercely competitive and he's no dummy. He has six years of this offense under his belt so EVEN IF he sits out the nine workouts without pads, it will not be the end of the world as long as he signs a deal by camp....I seem to recall he did quite well without much by way of off season workouts last year, ahem, something about a record-breaking season?

I don't buy it, especially after watching this video...

Apparently Drew is not making comments to anyone. I trust the two guys in the video who actually have relationship with him over some reporter trying to come up with a story to make a name for themselves.

Mike Florio is just trying to stir the pot... I've never liked that guy

SapperSaint 03-09-2012 03:58 PM

Thanks for posting the video Kovacs.

Like I have said, If Drew gets on WWL (at least) and says, "Don't worry Saints fans"; this crap all stops.

With some of the contract re-do's and more to come; maybe they are going to give Drew what he wants/deserves.
