Sounds like Ashley needs a good dose of Saints reality. Whoever she is! Some talking head wannabe?

Yeah, just looking at her face as she was saying it, it seemed like she just does not like the Saints on a level other than professional...

Re: Ashley Fox say saints dont belong

I'm still trying to figure out who she is and why does her opinion matter. The lady at the drive-thru at mickey d's today also said the colts will win, so there you are, go ahead and place your bets. lol

Re: Ashley Fox say saints dont belong

I don't know, she is cute and a good writer:

MIAMI - He just has it, that rare, immeasurable quality that is a combination of moxie, grit, determination, and, most important, the know-how to win.
Drew Brees is a leader, yes, and an amazingly accurate passer, but, most of all, he is a winner. Always has been. In high school. In college at Purdue. With the San Diego Chargers. And now, for the last four seasons, with the New Orleans Saints.



New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees set an NFL single-season record by completing 70.6 percent of his passes, beating the record Cincinnati's Ken Anderson (70.55) had held since the nine-game 1982 season.

Dick Vermeil 2010 Pro Bowl Tom Brookshier


Brees is on the cusp of crowning a glorious career that has been forged despite the obstacles. He was too short to play in the NFL, had too weak of an arm, succeeded in college only because the Boilermakers' system was designed specifically for him.
Brees heard it all but didn't listen. He knew better, and he was right.

"Sometimes," Brees said yesterday, "you can't measure the fight in the dog."

If the Saints are the heart of a city that was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina and the failure of the levees built to protect the city from floods, Brees is the heart of the Saints. He joined the team by choice when the Saints, like the city, were a wreck, and his commitment to a team that was coming off a vagabond 3-13 season when they played their home games in San Antonio, Texas, almost assured that the franchise would return to New Orleans.

Brees gave the city hope. He and his wife restored a home in uptown New Orleans and dedicated themselves to helping rebuild the city. Brees' fingerprints are all over the reconstruction. Through his foundation, the Brees Dream Foundation, he has donated $3 million to the city, helping refurbish athletic fields and schools, a home for families of cancer patients, and a hospital, among other things.

And perhaps nothing has brought more joy to the people of New Orleans than Brees' play.

In 2001, San Diego selected Brees with the first pick in the second round of the draft. Although he was the second quarterback taken after Michael Vick, Brees had slipped out of the first round after questions arose about his size - he's 6 foot, even - and his arm strength, questions that now look silly.

Brees spent five seasons in San Diego, the last two with Philip Rivers waiting in the wings. After the 2004 season, in which Brees threw for 3,159 yards and had a 104.8 passer rating, the Chargers slapped the franchise tag on him to keep him off the free-agent market. In the season finale in 2005, with just hours to go before becoming a free agent, Brees injured his throwing shoulder, completely tearing the labrum and partially tearing the rotator cuff. More than one doctor, Brees said, told him he had a 25 percent chance of ever playing again.

It was, as Brees said, a "defining moment in my life."

On the free-agent market, Brees got looks from two teams: Miami and New Orleans. He chose the Saints and their first-year coach, Sean Payton, instead of the Nick Saban-led Dolphins, and the move altered the NFL landscape. He became one of the best free-agent pickups ever.

"I didn't get the feeling [Miami] had as much confidence in me and my shoulder," said Brees, who added that New Orleans "had as much confidence in me as I had in myself."

Brees signed a six-year, $60 million contract with the Saints, and he's been worth every penny. Since 2006, Brees has thrown for 4,000 or more yards each year, and in that time, he leads the NFL with 18,298 passing yards, 2,355 attempts, 1,572 completions, 30 games with at least 300 yards, five with at least 400 yards, and 142 completions of 25 yards or more. He is tied with Peyton Manning for first with 122 touchdown passes in that span.

The Saints, meanwhile, are 38-25 in regular-season games Brees has started, and the team has led the NFL in offense for the last four years, averaging 391.8 yards per game. (The Eagles are fourth with 362.0 yards per game.)

This season, Brees set an NFL single-season record by completing 70.6 percent of his passes, beating the record Cincinnati's Ken Anderson (70.55) had held since the nine-game, strike-marred 1982 season.

"He's a rare athlete," Payton said. "When you look at his foot agility, his release, his accuracy, and the fact that he has hands as big as mitts, he's got a skill set that is perfect for the position. . . . He's been a winner everywhere he's been. He won in high school. He won at Purdue with [coach] Joe Tiller. He won with the Chargers and Marty Schottenheimer. He's very competitive. Some guys just have that, and certainly you're seeing two quarterbacks this weekend that have that."

Manning is the prototype - tall, cerebral, the son of an NFL quarterback. Brees is the grinder. They both are special, but Brees is the sentimental favorite for what he has meant to New Orleans and for dealing with the death of his mother during training camp. Mina Brees died Aug. 7 from a prescription-drug overdose.

"You have to go through some tough times and fight through adversity in order to get to this kind of level and have these types of opportunities," Brees said. "Had you not gone through some of those things earlier in the history of this organization or in my own career, you wouldn't have learned the lessons you learned in order to get here, have that chip on your shoulder or have the motivation we have to be here and take part in the Super Bowl.

"I believe wholeheartedly the fact that everything happens for a reason. At times, God is going to put you in a position to wonder why this is happening to me or to us, and yet you know it's happening for a reason. It's there to make you stronger and to give the opportunity to accomplish something later on - and here we are."
