Looks like the Norman situation opened some issues with Brees?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; he is one of the best to ever lace them up. we will rue the day he retires. He is going no where, and yes he is aging, but you wouldn't know it by his numbers. he nearly hit 5000 ...

Re: Looks like the Norman situation opened some issues with Brees?

he is one of the best to ever lace them up. we will rue the day he retires. He is going no where, and yes he is aging, but you wouldn't know it by his numbers. he nearly hit 5000 yards while missing an entire game. He did that behind an oline that wasn't all that hott and a horrible defense. Meanwhile who were his receivers? You want to know how good he is? watch Ben's numbers with the ravens this year.

And who will be his receivers next year? The FO is looking like Meachem will be on the field next year and I have no idea who's snaps he takes. The offense didn't do enough though and Streif is gonna get killed by what we have next year.

I didn't say Washington will win the division.

Re: Looks like the Norman situation opened some issues with Brees?

look if wants to play games i am on record as saying he is not god at this point in his career. This is not a Archie type of situation. from a business stand point time to cash in is close at hand

If he was to be traded then the manner in which he gets traded is up to Drew and his agents demands.

Trade to a contender of the highest bidder is all up to him at this point.

It is all up to him.

Re: Looks like the Norman situation opened some issues with Brees?

Calm down

First the article is written by Mike Florio

The guy's reputation is to stir up by speculating the worst bad blood and project gloom and doom to sell papers. He has been saying Brees is washed up and greedy for years.

The Saints smartly are not showing their hand, particularly right before draft day. Drew will take less and deservedly retire a Saint (no Montana or Farve situation - they had strong backups and less ties to their city)

Nothing to see here move along

The reason we didn't sign Norman (and I am glad we didn't) was $53 million in guaranteed money - that is ridiculous. Josh is fortunately out of the division and Brandin Cooks will be happy. Between Cooks and Julio they will knock a few games off of the Panthers. Norman will now fade to obscurity (except when he is fighting with OBJ and DEZ) on a mediocre redskins team.

Drew isn't going anywhere and he isn't the greedy bastard they say he is

Cooks, Sneed, Coleman, Fleener, Hill, Ingram, Cadet, Hightower, draft picks, practice squad, undrafted free agents. I mean take your pick.

It was barely a year ago that Graham was traded. That was followed by all the hand wringing about who would catch the ball. Yet another 4800+ yards later, the hand wringing persists.

There's no guarantee that Streif is going to be playing RT at the start of the season. Also I have absolutely no idea how skill players catching the ball have to do with Strief...

Re: Looks like the Norman situation opened some issues with Brees?

No matter, I don't want the Saints committing that much to Brees, regardless of his age, years of wear...

Coach Payton and the FO has little faith in the system they've installed...

We should have been looking to either trade or draft Brees' replacement three years ago...

Brees started breaking down late in the season and if that doesn't wake people up, they're either in denial or in blind fandom-lust...

Re: Looks like the Norman situation opened some issues with Brees?

I'm wondering if Brees even really wants an extension. Last year For the first time in their career Brees and Payton openly butted heads on the field and in the press. Maybe he wants to see how this season shakes out to see if he thinks he really still has a chance at a ring with the Saints. There is injury risk though.

OK... he is way better than Archie Manning.
