Saints' Kobayashi Maru: Drew Brees Contract

Last I checked, James T. Kirk is not available to be the Saints GM for some years assuming the fiction written by Gene Roddenberry continues to have some assumptions come to fact; even then he'll be saving bigger problems than the 2013 Saints Salary Cap situation and subsequent seasons...

The reason is that Mickey Loomis failed to convince Brees and his Agent Tom Condon that it is in Brees best interests to be quarterback of a Superbowl Contender than a run and shoot offense with mediocre team season records...

Sure Brees brought Marino's all time passing mark to an end, and a dropped pass would have allowed him to do it twice; but, he's never won a League MVP - probably something to do with his pick-six penchant that national media types are almost hoping for so they can nominate their boy and not the small market hero...

And while Saints fans regale in his elusiveness and ability to move the ball up and down the field; we all privately grumble to the fan to our left, whether at the Dome or on our couch, how he could have forced a pass that even we could see wasn't there.

And in the past couple of seasons, there has even been some decline in his ability to connect to receivers on deep routes in stride or worse, throwing the game's anathema, the pick-six, that even causes the game's greatest, Peyton Manning, to lose games...

But you have to wonder if those pregame pep rallies are starting to seem disingenuous to saavy Saints fans who follow the game year round or to those teammates who know that there will not be enough cap money left for them...

And the Saints seem totally committed to the passing game first, second, and third; and despite moving back into the first round last year to gain a talented prospect in Mark Ingram, the effort seemed misguided as the Saints have failed to draft a Right Tackle or allow enough salary cap room so that there could be balance on the offensive side of the ball; nevermind that the defense is the worst in the league and was finally confirmed with last season's futility record setting performance...

Then Payton announces a long-overdue switch to a 3-4 defense which many Saints fans of over twenty-five years will recall the glory days of the Dome Patrol; only to put that new effort in the hands of the twin brother of one of the biggest @$$clowns the NFL Coaching ranks have ever seen who's been limited in his chances of out-doing his twin...

But it's all for naught as there is little money available to make the switch because of poor contract planning on the part of the Saints General Manager...

And so it comes back to the Brees contract...

While no one debates Brees' importance to the team, organization, and South Louisiana or the Greater Saints' Market - his agent's and his selfish contract demands and Loomis' failure to make Brees realize same may now have limited the small market Saints to mediocrity with enough highlights to salve the burns of what will be disappointing seasons until the Brees' Contract expires unless Brees comes to his senses...

And so it falls to Coach Payton as we see how much Captain Kirk is in Coach and if he can overcome this Kobayashi Maru Scenario in the Black and Gold Galaxy as there is no Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Checkov, Sulu as the Brees' contract does not allow for a supporting cast on defense...
