I will say this we are not prepared for life beyond Brees and that's pretty sad. That's why we will never be associated with other teams and always have our ancient history thrown in our face when we are not winning. Down the road no one is ever gonna want to go out of their way in the media and call Brees one of the all time greats just because "he made the saints relevant unlike any other QB". Just goes to show that we have not evolved and people are right to put us down because they have been right in saying we are a fluke.
Good hell man. That's a hell of a negative stance on stuff. I get being realistic, but I don't think "fluke" is the word that I'd choose to describe the Saints.

I would be happy with a 4 year 100 million. Brees is still a top 5 qb and should be over the next 3 to 4 years. To be honest I would back load the last two years. Free up some cap in the next two to make a run.

Re: Saints & Brees re-start contract negotiations

It's not like it's yalls money. And yes you do pay for tickets but there is no guarantee that you will or should win when you buy those tickets so that excuse is nonsense. You guys have no idea what goes on behind those doors or in the locker room. Fans only understand about 2% of what goes on in football as a business. You are not privy to that info

My kind of family picture AllSaints.

I agree Drew gives the Saints the best shot at being competitive. We have
all said it give him a decent O-line and he can pick apart D's all day long.

I don't see it. I want be changing my mind wheather the Saints sign him to a big contract or not, but I will root for the Saints with or without Brees pulling the trigger even if I think it's a good move or not.
Father time is undeniable, but in today's NFL where the QBs are protected like they are, 42 isn't a bad age if he takes care of himself-which he does. We have no idea what level he'll be playing at 42,but until he shows some major regress, I feel no need to worry about father time. All he needs is some good protection. I do understand your concern and respect your opinion though. I do think that 4 yrs. should be max for him.
