10 mill cap hit this year? Mickey is a freakin' genius!

How surreal is it to deposit this six times over the next 6 months $6,166.666.66?

Even for Drew those are big-azzed checks.


This would be on loop in my vehicle for the next 6 months.

What a deal, it's a win-win for all ... Drew gets his money, it's cap friendly, doesn't tie the franchise's hands and should the Saints & Drew desire to part ways later on (knock on wood), it won't be a mess like Manning and the Colts ... this Loomis guy is pretty good at what he does, eh? :mrgreen:.

The Colts mess wasn't all about the cap. First, you can't take away a hall of fame QB who's at the top of his game and there not be consequences. Then, not having a backup QB worthy of being on a NFL roster made things almost impossible. Add to that, having a head coach who was way over his head and only got his job at the request of the former head coach, and then you have the Colts last year. To sum it up, let's hope Brees stay's upright. :)

Caldwell was a joke and I do not hold the guy who requested him as a replacement in much higher regard.

Caldwell always looked completely lost on the sidelines. Now he is the QB coach for the Ravens... Good luck with that.
