For me it is the persona most have built around Drew and his love for the saints, the city and the fans. I am not minimizing all that he has done one bit. Just we as fans need a reality check on this persona we have dreamed up.

As silly as it is, most of us have unjustly put him on a pedestal so high that he needs an elevator obviously to reach it.

After all football is a business and the players want their money now. they could careless about guaranteed contracts and life long insurance.Both of which would be huge for the lower range players. Which in collective bargaining must be the minority at 49% or so.

But that would mean the big dogs would have to surrender some bones. That is not going to happen. But yet again they will change the rules to prolong their self indulgent life styles at the risk to teammates and the integrity of the game.

So if they do care about their teammates or the game that much why should we as fans expect anything different.

I like Drew and have no issues with him. I am guilty of holding him to unacceptable standards. After all he is just a millionaire. Once again I am not minimizing all that he has done one bit.

I am just apologizing for unjustly put him up there in the first place.

Now he only needs a step stool to get up on the pedestal. It is not nearly as high as it once was. thus realistic.

This should make it easier for all us to accept them as the football player they are. for that is what they are and nothing more.

i am holding the elevator door just encase he changes his mind.



this was buried in a thread and i want to get input from the site on it

No past Super Bowl without Drew and no future Super Bowl, at least not in the near future, without Drew. And, by the way, he led the Saints to the Championship BEFORE he was paid the big bucks! And, do we even know if he has been asked to restructure and refused? That seems to be the assumption.

I meant it as a sarcastic reply to those that hear news about a player and assume that's the only thing that's gonna happen or that the front office isn't working on other players as well.

I am sure players in general do care about life long insurance, however, there is none as an NFL football player, so yes, they want all they can get now. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I do not have a problem with Capitalism and a free market place.

As for putting anyone on a pedestal, that is your issue, not mine. I do not put entertainers on pedestals. You have fallen prey to the romanticizing of sports figures by large corporations who want you to see these players as larger than life, and some sort of heroes.

Drew has already said he'd gladly restructure if asked to do so.

Maybe because they had money to pay other people who slightly contributed?

"Listen, I get compensated very well. I don't take that for granted for one second," Brees said. "But I play this game because I love this game, I love this locker room and I love the opportunity to win a championship."
Yeh, that's OUR QB and glad to have him, he deserves his salary and if Loomis can't get the numbers where they need to be, Brees would restructure without a fight.
