I don't feel for Chase, he knew that going in, it's the nature of the beast.


I wish my biggest problem was where is my next Mil coming from?

It's not that he said anything incendiary, or that he uses Twitter, it's going public about a business issue, very unprofessional...... That was more of a cry for attention. "Poor me".
It wasn't a business issue. I have followed him on Twitter since he first joined. That tweet was right in line with what he would normally tweet. As would anyone, he was simply commenting on the fact that the uncertainty was weird and eerie. Nothing more, nothing less.

Re: Tweet from Chase Daniel...

Add your boss, some media, and coworkers to your twitter. Go public with how you feel about an unsettling situation at work, knowing the media will go public with it and see how the company you work for feels about it.

Or have an employee that works for you do the same.. Se how you feel about it..

"Fact" is no excuse for bad form.

If I had an employee whose contract was coming to an end and no decision had been made whether he/she would be renewed I wouldn't have any problem with that tweet or that statement in any forum. It is simply an honest feeling. I would be concerned if they didn't feel that way.

Every unrestricted free agent out there, not just Chase Daniel, would feel the same way. It is not a jab at the Saints management, but an honest declaration of how this part of the business affects the player's psyche.

Over the years I have heard dozens of players say pretty much the exact same thing in one form or another. He doesn't know where he will be next year and that has got to feel weird.

You, and a few others here, are making far too much of this absolutely sublime and innocent remark.

You are making too much of my feeling in regards to his remark.

My view has nothing to do with feelings... its going public, which seems to be the new fad that agents are pushing players to do.

These are not 10th grade school girls, they are grown men that are intelligent and calculating.

Could you imagine Payton tweeting "Drew has thrown too many interceptions, I am worried about our team and how we will win next week"

An uneasy feeling is something you share with your spouse, not the planet. He is wearing his emotions on his sleeve.

I wish we had the budget to sign him for what he might really be worth.

As I said in the post to which you replied, the sentiment he shared has been shared by dozens, if not hundreds, of NFL players for years. He wasn't commenting on the team or his relationship with the team at all. He was commenting on the common unease that all players feel at the end of a contract. If you had followed Daniel for the past couple of years you would know how innocent the tweet was. It was in no way "calculated" as you imply. There was nothing in the tweet that was threatening or could have any value in negotiating an new contract.

Your example of a fictitious Payton tweet is in no way anything approaching the tweet by Daniel. It has nothing to do with the Saints or any other personnel. It was a statement of how he was feeling personally at the time. THAT is Twitter's purpose.

A more comparative tweet by Payton would be:

"I have this weird, eerie feeling about what to expect during my upcoming suspension."

If Payton was on Twitter, this would have been a not totally unexpected, innocent tweet.

Me too. But the Saints know he can make more elsewhere and are the type of organization that wants the best for him. He knows that as well and may have actually been told the same by the Saints themselves. That would make his tweet even that much more understandable, honest and innocent.

Knowing Sean and the staff...

They've been eyeing someone nobody else has. He'll either turn out to be great or Ingram

They have to have someone in mind to groom as the new back-up because Daniel deserves a chance to play and they know that.

I dunno man, could be....I'm just ridin' the SPECULATION TRAIN here, but Jake Delhomme, old guy, able to hold field goals -- that does kinda fit the "Mark Brunell model." I still can't figure out how Brunell ended up on our roster. I don't think I knew he was even with the team until all of a sudden in 2009 he was out there holding field goals. I was like, "wait, he's with us?"
