Postcard from camp: Saints
At the Saints' complex in Metairie, La., where the club is doing construction to expand the practice facility and offices. I miss the recent days when the Saints used to travel to Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., one of the great camp sites because of the cozy campus and the closeness of the fans to the team. This afternoon, because of a thunderstorm earlier that drenched the area, the Saints had to cancel the public practice and move indoors to the practice facility. No fans. But there was a huge poster of Sean Payton glaring down on the boys at practice with a "DO YOUR JOB'' warning underneath. Owner Tom Benson ordered it to be installed in time for the players to see it at practice this afternoon.

Drew will finally get his MVP this year.

He got this right:

"I figured it's probably not such a good idea to eat a team's food when half the organization (and that might be conservative) wants me to fall off a cliff because of my reporting on the bounty affair."

Brees might have missed the entire offseason in his contract dispute, but he looked fantastic in the 75 minutes I watched Friday. So much for offseason contract-wrangling. New Orleans media monster Bobby Hebert (he of the "Seinfeld" George Constanza "Bobby Ay-BEAR" fame) told me Brees had an other-worldly first practice Thursday after his contract hassle, and every time I looked up he was hitting Jimmy Graham or Lance Moore or even Nick Toon square in the hands in the afternoon workout.

He's really turned into a joke as a sports writer. Never brings any insight to anything. Abita B+?!? Seriously? Writing about how he didn't trust having lunch with the team? Really? Is it a wonder why SI is losing subscriptions every year?

Why waste time watching Drew eat?
