My head hurts......can't someone please just make it go away. "If's and butts were candy and nuts it'd be christmas everyday." No more Brees and contract speculation... I'm going golfing, at least there I can drink in peace. No more contract talk, sign a deal or not, don't give two sh--s...time to move on. Sorry, I just hate waken up everyday looking for some news on Brees, good, bad or indifferent. Done! I need a tumbler of Johnnie Blue!

Oh yes FF, he'll sit if he's not satisfied. I hope it doesn't come to that, but if it does, he'll sit. Then he'll demand to be traded next year.

I'd tag him next year too, just as the CBA he fought tooth and nail for allows us to.

Im so sick of this im bout to throw up if i don't read anything else but a "Drew Brees is signed" article!.. I have gone as far as avoiding anything that mentions "Drew Brees" up to this point, but now with the other crap out of the way i have gone back into the shadow's of these discussions.

Tag him the next 2 years as the CBA states. So for the next 3 years Brees can only play football for the Saints and no one else. So all this talk about Brees sitting or playing for someone else is BS. He would be 36 years old before he could sign on another team. Condon wants to play hardball, I expect nothing less from Loomis! $18 million a year is more than fair!

Just make him meet us in the middle at $20 milion/year. Everybody will be happy & he'll still be the highest paid QB.

... this is what I don't understand about the whole deal, Brees has been offered a couple pretty good contracts, sign one already! ... I'm all for a guy getting what he's worth and negotiating the best deal, but at $64.3mil for three years, does it matter if you get a long term contract? I mean, take the money, play three seasons & retire to the broadcast booth for crissake ... just sign already!

I guess I'm going to get the a-hole tag today because I'm going to play Tom Condon:

Peyton Manning has not played in more than a year. He has a documented injury that could by all accounts end his career. He just signed a 5 year $96 million that pays essentially a flat $20 a year. And BTW he's 36.

My guy is 3 years younger. My guy just had the best season that an NFL QB has EVER HAD! I repeat EVER HAD! The last 5 years has been the best 5 year stretch in the history of the NFL for a QB. Your franchise won its first SB ever with my guy at the helm.

So exactly why should my guy take a back seat to a QB who is older and injured? Why should we settle for a shorter contract? My guy wants to retire here in New Orleans. He wants the well deserved security and respect that should be afforded to what is by all accounts a HOF QB at the prime of his career.

Let's find a way to get this done so we can get back to the business of winning championships. 5 years, $115 million, with $75 million frontloaded in the first three years frankly isn't too much to ask. My guy is the best QB in the NFL and can likely be the best QB in the history of the NFL if we can get this done.

End presentation.

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.
