Could this be the Saints' last season with Drew Brees and Sean Payton?

JONATHAN JONES
Friday June 30th, 2017

For what seems like the past four off-seasons, the New Orleans Saints have faced a handful of issues that threaten to derail what the franchise has built.

Coach Sean Payton comes up as a candidate for one or more job openings. The Saints, known for the fiscal irresponsibility, get into some sort of new salary cap hell. Or thereís a situation with QB Drew Breesís contract that paralyzes the team and whatever moves the Saints may make that offseason and beyond.

Itís been 12 years of the Brees/Payton marriage, and even though itís seen some rocky timesóespecially the last three seasons, with identical 7Ė9 recordsóit remains in tact. But for how much longer? Since winning Super Bowl XLIV, the Saints have two playoff wins in five postseason games. Is it reasonable to think this season may be the Saintsí last good season with Payton and Brees?

First and foremost, it should be noted that even though Brees is entering his age-38 season, thereís not much sign of his play diminishing. Surely his arm would get weaker as the season goes along, but he hasnít played January football since he was 34 so itís difficult to assess. Brees is likely a season and a half away from catching Peyton Manning for first place on the all-time passing yards list, and the Saints have been in the top six of the league in passing yards since he got to New Orleans (and top 10 in points in eight of his 11 seasons.)

LOL! Those two aren't going anywhere until they choose to leave the game. Record makes no difference. It's not what you want, halloween, it is reality.

I'm sure the same exact articles were written about the Saints in the '09 preseason. We all know how that went

Reality is another 7-9 season and we'll see. 4 strait years !! Odds would be leaning heavy in my favor with the payroll Benson puts up each year and a 4th 7-9 iosing season.

Benson treats Loomis and Payton like they are his sons. They can do no wrong. Maybe any other owner ... but, as has been pointed out many times here before, there is a completely different dynamic with those involved with the Saints than anywhere else. That is a fact. You see it all the time.

Oh, and Benson could put up FAR more than that in payroll and still be coming out in the black. The owners are supported off shared revenue. He can't help but make money off the team.

All revenues generated by merchandising are shared between 31 teams. Jerry Jones and the Cowboys opted out of the agreement. The broadcast revenues are shared equally. The Cleveland Browns are making money going 1-15.

Welcome to the real world of the NFL.

People in the seats are pocket change to the owners. TV contracts = $$$$$$$$$$$$ in the bank.
