I’m not sure about that.. even as a fan I say ‘we’ all the time, doesn’t mean I’m suiting up lol.

I just caught his interview on NFLN and it really sounded like he may be leaning toward retiring. He really put an emphasis on how much time and stress he has invested in football, and how his kids are getting older, missing time with them etc...

It runs counter to Brees' strategy thus far, but you have to wonder if one of Brees' options is privately or publicly informing the Saints this next one will be his farewell season. I think it might be a good option; his agent might not agree.

Note he didn't say he and Hill WOULD be sharing time. All he said was he wouldn't have a problem if they did. Payton said he and Brees haven't discussed anything since the day after the season ended so this wouldn't have been anything planned by the team. Once again, nothing but speculation by talking heads.

Ironically, one of the hosts or guests on NFL Radio mentioned a few days ago that he expected Brees to decide to retire if he was told by the team that he would be required to share time at QB. This sounds like Brees addressing that misinformed speculation.

I am frickin' pissed!

I saw every interview, I thought, on NFL Network with Brees and I don't remember him saying he was missing time with his kids. He actually spend more time with his family than any other player I can think of. He has said on many occasions that his kids are all finally approaching the age where they can begin to appreciate what he is doing as a player. He is always involving them in everything before, during and after the season. In fact, in one interview earlier today on NFL Radio he said he is treating this off-season just as he has the past three. I was getting the vibe from everything he was saying that things are pretty much status quo and he would be returning. You can tell he feels like he has unfinished business.

I am frickin' pissed!

I seriously doubt he would be thinking a year ahead all of the sudden. For the past three years he has said he just wants to look at each season as a year by year basis. The only difference this year is the added media attention given the fact that all three QB's on the roster are free agents. It allows for far greater speculation by those that do not have a clue.
