Drew Brees: Sean Payton and I are staying with Saints

There is a growing sense of belief that both Drew Brees and Sean Payton will not be with the Saints next season. That sense is not shared by Brees himself.

During an appearance on NFL Network’s “NFLHQ” Tuesday morning, Brees was asked if he can envision a scenario in which him and Payton are not in New Orleans comes 2016.

“No, I don’t,” he said confidently. “I think we — a plan was put in place throughout last offseason as to how we were going to build a foundation by which to make a run at it in the future. That includes some new faces, that includes some young players that, I think, will all have a chance to come together and kind of build a team that can make a run at it in the future.

“Unfortunately, we had high expectations going into this year and we fell a bit short. But I’m confident with the character, the leadership, the talent we have.”

About short is an understatement. Should have said in his statement the D fell short all but 2 games this season thats why we're not in the hunt,again.

Brees is a class leader that does not throw others under the bus. Be glad we'll have him for years to come.

I think ultimately Loomis, Payton and Brees have Benson's complete trust and he won't look to get rid of any of them. However, the wild card remains whether or not Payton will ask to be let go. Drew's shelf-life is waaaay shorter than Payton's so of course he wants to keep the band together until their farewell tour, but Payton might want a fresh start. We'll see.

Seriously, why would Payton want to leave?

He has complete control over the roster.

He has arguably one the the best QB's in history still playing at an extremely high level.

He is the highest paid head coach in the entire league.

He just built a new home in New Orleans.

He has easy access to his son playing in Dallas.

Why in the hell would he "ask to be let go"? Are you frickin' serious?

Please tell me you got this notion from one of those dumb asses like Rapaport or La Canfora and didn't come to this idiotic conclusion on your own.
