Exclamation Former Giants player attacks Drew Brees for Saints QB's comments about retired players

I agree 100% with what Brees said!

************************************************** *******

Another retired NFL player took New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees to task. Former New York Giants wide receiver Phil McConkey blasted Brees on WFAN radio in New York Tuesday concerning comments Brees made a few years ago about retired players mismanaging their finances.

"There are some guys today that have absolutely no clue and that run their mouths," McConkey said. "And Drew Brees is one of them. ... I know he's canonized and people think he's great. If he got in front of a group of ex-players, I don't know what would happen. ... It's just -- it's disgusting, but that's some of the mentality that's around."

Brees, who is on the NFLPA's executive committee, said in 2011 that it wasn't the job of the players' union to compensate retired players for making poor choices with their finances once their careers ended.


"There's some guys out there that have made bad business decisions," Brees said a few years ago. "They took their pensions early because they never went out and got a job. They've had a couple divorces and they're making payments to this place and that place. And that's why they don't have money. And they're coming to us to basically saying, 'Please make up for my bad judgment.' In that case, that's not our fault as players."

Pee-Wee: "Hey, Conkey! What's today's secret word?"

Conkey: "Here you go, Pee Wee."

Who gives these clowns air time? Honestly, Drew calls a spade a spade and some nobody kick returned from the 80's who probably blew everything he's ever made tries to call Brees out? Gtfo.

Brees is 100% correct...
It's called responsibility!
I realize they didn't make as much as player do today but they still all made more than I'll ever make! I don't feel sorry for older players who blew thier money.

Hey McConkey, that's why they say "the truth hurts".
Deal with it.

Re: Former Giants player attacks Drew Brees for Saints QB's comments about retired players

Nice to see that there is absolutely nothing interesting going on in the sports world, therefore we get to hear from a nobody who will forever remain a nobody. More interestingly to note that while football is still going on, the world remains disinterested in the teams that remain..... Suck on that Dirty Birds...
