Winning a second SB is a long shot and takes into account a lot more than just QB and QB health... Two years ago our running back core was crippled. This is a year with out Payton... He could get hurt.... He could throw for one yard less than last year and the critics would say he didn't preform as well....

His time to strike is now...
I agree.

Just my opinion but I that's what Tom Condon is thinking too. Hold out for as long and as much as possible, and then when he's squeezed the team for as much as he can get, sign the offer.

Geez, everyone understands business. Yet for some reason other quarterbacks aren't holding their team hostage to the bitter end. All the condescending remarks I keep hearing or reading about this being a leverage game are getting old. We all know, we get it... It doesn't make this any less ridiculous.

He's being offered more than market value, but he wants more guaranteed money. Whatever. Let's see what happens on monday.

That's true. But we all want it to be about more than business. We all want to believe that Drew cares about the Saints, the fans and the city of New Orleans.
