Wouldn't matter if Brees played for free with the "amazing" talent we've had filling the DC, defensive coach and special teams coaching positions for the past five years.

They've been wasting talent on the defensive side too...

Sandy is wasting his space at that rag of an online magazine... he should give way to better talent as his writing sucks donkey kongs. He just wishes his favorite team even had Drew Brees!

How is he too greedy? Almost half the QB's in the league have bigger contracts than Brees. He simply got what the market was willing to pay. Twenty-five, or more, other teams would have loved to have had Brees at those exact same numbers. This is a business and the players are businessmen first and foremost. Any QB stupid enough to sign a deal for less than their market value is an idiot and I certainly don't want an idiot at QB.

Brees and his contract have NEVER been an issue with the Saints success, or lack thereof.

Re: ESPN writer attacks Saints’ ‘wasting’ of franchise player

Drew was ranked 8th this last season for highest annual salary for a quarterback, he's the 3rd highest in his own division behind Cam and Ryan, Sandy needs to stfu and go back to writing for some bubblegum rag

it took all of about 5 seconds to find that info

Amen. Matt Ryan has a bigger contract than Drew. Nuff said...

The game has changed. Times have changed. It's all about the money we all know this. How the Patriots do it, hell, who know's. Drew got paid, Thanks god he did but it hurt us.

I have to disagree. Bad personnel decisions hurt us. What Brees got paid had nothing to do with it.
