    Somebody tell me what is Drew Brees waiting on a long-term contract they done put the franchise tag on him now give him the long term contract because he want assurance so Mickey Loomis do what you got to do because we have a Super Bowl to win. If you don’t have a quarterback that can get the job done what other opinion do you have you are in to deep to turn around now it’s almost game time we have loss enough key players already so let’s play ball.
