Re: Wonder why we don't make the conference championship every year

So are you saying the Saints aren't committed to winning?

I seem to remember a lot of people on this Forum gnashing their teeth and wringing their hands like a bleeding heart liberal because Brees wanted his contract structured a certain way.

Sure there is a lesson. Peyton Manning gets what he wants and makes the playoffs.

Re: Wonder why we don't make the conference championship every year

Considering Drew played for the Saints for peanuts from 2006 to 2010, allowing the front office to front load the team, I don't see this as very courageous from Brady.

If memory serves, wasn't Brady and Manning in a dual for "highest paid" in the NFL not too long ago?

Considering its been 10 years since the Pats WON the superbowl (and yes, big difference between Champ Game, going to SB and WINNING the SB)....

I'd like to see how much money Brady has made, overall, in his career compared to Drew accounting for inflation, contract trends etc. I'd bet Brady has pocketed wayyyy more....

I'm sure you'll be the first in line Monday morning to ask your boss to defer some of your salary to the company so it can "win more"...

You must be married to a global supermodel icon, huh?

She makes over $40 million per year. Successful models, actors and corporate CEO's all make far more than the highest paid professional athletes.

Re: Wonder why we don't make the conference championship every year

I just read that the restructured Brady deal increased his guaranteed pay from $30 million to $57 million including a $30 million signing bonus. He didn't do this out of the kindness of his heart. It also includes $24 million injury guarantee.
