I certainly don’t intend or mean to take away anything Brees has done or will do for the Saints and the city of New Orleans.  But you have to be truthful when looking at his situation.

Brees is looking at what’s best for the future of his family.  It may pain “Brees” fans to hear this but if it came down to a choice between the Saints and what’s best for his family, Britney and the Boys will win hands down.

Let’s not also overlook the fact that Brees stated he would work his contract to help the team maintain the core players needed to be a contender.  Anybody seen Carl Nicks?  Oh yeah, he’s in Tampa Bay.  Yet some “fans” wanted to label him as being greedy.  Interesting.

WIST 690 AM The Sports Hangover’s Larry Holder also broke the story that Brees had actually been offered a contract this past season that would have made him the highest paid player in the NFL.  Yet, he didn’t sign it.

The question becomes really if there is really a lack of communication or is Condon asking a price too out of the ballpark for Brees right now.  That’s what Loomis has to determine.

    I am a true Saints fan and have been trying to explain this over and over tirelessly to the Brees’ fans who are quick to say “pay the man”. While I wish Drew all of the luck in the world, the franchise just can not be mortgaged out for one player. Mickey has done a real good job of building what we have now and that can’t be flushed down the …… because one player wants all of the money for this year, next year, and the year after that. What happened to Drew’s proclamation that he would not destroy the team by seeking a ‘BIIIGGG” contract that would hurt the Saints? While Drew has done wonders for the organization we have to think about the 52 other players that have to be paid to keep the “Who Dat” train running. Players have restructured contracts to free up cap space to accomplish this, now it is Drew’s turn to “step up” and be reasonable and realistic in his demands. Think about next year when Jimmy Graham is due his contract (if he has another year like last he has got to get paid to keep him) and Colston’s real money kicks in also. Sit down Drew and tell Condon to come to his senses and you come to yours also. This can’t be emphasized enough. Long Live The Saints!!!
