IF I'm Brees or Brees' agent, I want a seat at the table (and the Saints would be smart to oblige here) when building the offensive line (NFL Free Agency and/or Draft), in a quid pro quo of leaving money on the table...

One step further, by his own example of leadership and dedication, Brees has earned that level of respect from the Saints to be included and have weight in those offensive teammate personnel decisions...

Best example of a High Level of Trust in a franchise player is exemplified in the film North Dallas Forty based on the book by former Cowboy Peter Gent and adventures with his QB 'Dandy' Don Meredith...

Late in the film QB Seth Maxwell (Mac Davis) argues with Head Coach B. A. Strother (G. D. Spradlin), based on Tom Landry, to set aside pride and some draconian team rules in a key division late season game...

B.A. after some other failed decisions relents to his QB and lets the reliable hands of Phil Elliott (Nick Nolte) out of the dog-house and into a game-winning drive - this would be the Level of Trust I'm referring...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Brees? Rodgers? Robba the Hut has some thoughts, if not some hard feelings...

Brees is an all team guy.

Sean P, do him right and protect him up front (guard) and provide him with more weapons to throw to.

I want this man to get ring #2 ... badly.
