Again, with Drew Brees...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; All this posturing is some real BS need just to get done with it. Saints just never had to deal with a thing like this before they should offer something to make he a part of the Saints for life ...

All this posturing is some real BS need just to get done with it. Saints just never had to deal with a thing like this before they should offer something to make he a part of the Saints for life just for pot liquor and I think this would be a done deal. Never did like Tom Condom though.

As good as he was, he couldn't overcome our defense in the last two years.

That winey, crybaby, Eli Manning won the Super Bowl for God's sake! You don't have to have records broken to win the Super Bowl, you need a TEAM.

I love Brees as much as anyone, but he is not the messiah. Way too much emphasis is put into the quarterback. Yes he is the single most important player on our team, and yes he deserves to be paid accordingly. But they have tried to make him the highest paid QB in the entire league, and he still asks for more. Am I calling him greedy? No, he has a right to negotiate for as much as he can get. But the Saints simply can't give him more than they are offering.

To say that we could afford to lose everyone else just to keep Brees, because he is the franchise player doesn't really make sense to me. If drew didn't have any talent around him, would he have put up these kind of numbers? Drew is probably the best in the game right now, but even the best QB's don't win without a good team around them. They make their team better, but they can't do it alone.

He will sign though, so this is why myself and everyone else I have seen, are not bashing Drew, but simply voicing our impatience. They have offered a more than fair deal in most people's opinion.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Yes, Brees' accomplishments are great, but it's a team game.
Because we have to set aside money for him we traded down Nicks to Grubbs, and Meachem to Arrington. Next year will it be Graham and Bushrod? We can't weaken every other position just to keep one guy happy

Without drew we would still be the aints how can y'all sit up here and try to diminish what he has done for the Saints & the City of New Orleans you are right he wasn't the only. One who puts in work on the field but he's one of the rare ones who can make people around him better...and without Brees we wouldn't have. Had a chance at a come back against the niner's give us 1 minute with the ball no doubt in my mind we win and if brees gets his deal we wouldn't have to cut anybody because he wants most of the money front loaded anyway he deserves the money he's earned it

The NFL is a QB league. Ask SF how far they got or the other teams without a elite QB. PM was the colts, Brady is NE. Without those guys they have very little hope of making it. When was the last non elite QB that won a SB, Dilfer ?
If you really think we have a shot without Brees I think your kidding yourselves. Teams don't fear the Saints, they fear Brees. They know how good he is.
