Only in Louisiana!!
 
Hereís an off-beat story. Before the Louisiana House passed a law to continue a tax break for the New Orleans Hornets, one lawmaker proposed an amendment that would have required the Saints to agree to a five-year contract with quarterback Drew Brees. Tom Benson owns both the Saints and the Hornets. The amendment didnít pass, but I like the lawmakerís creativity.

Yes and no.

Yes, because we all know a deal will get done and Brees will retire as a Saint.

No, because after all the crap the Saints and their fans have been through, we are like a starving dog at a buffet table waiting on word that Brees has signed!

Was signing Bunkley not good enough!?!

Not sure its too big a deal (Drew's Contract) anymore. Enough time has passed. Whats left to talk about.... I would bet the St Louis Cardinals (baseball) fans never thought Puholz would leave St Louis.....

The time for postering is long past due... The inevitability of Drew signing is no longer.... All this crap... Mr. Benson needs to make a "Business" decision and if, in his opinion, he has to over pay... then over pay...

Drew needs top be on Airline Drive NOW...

Even though it was shot down, that's some good stuff there

I'm getting tired on waiting on Drew as well, but a deal will get done and when it does things will finally get back to normal for the Saints (well what normal will be this year)

My counter argument, the Saints are up to the limit on the salary cap this year, every week we get a new press release regarding players restructuring for the same amount just in ways that lower their cap room, front office has been recently distracted (you're welcome for that understatement), no rumor(s) of ANY team approaching Breesus. Every indication points to the fact this is being worked on. Just takes time given how royally screwed the franchise is regarding Cap figures. Its not posturing, it's the business side.

I don't see how you can think it's no big deal. Did you see any of the Colts games last year?

I'm not saying we would be as bad as the Colts, but it wouldn't be very pretty.
