I wish I could only say I am disappointed in Drew Brees in this contract dispute. He has repeatedly told the press how much he wants to keep this team together. Now, we find that is all cow manure. He has been demanding 20% of the salary cap, which is over 22% higher than the highest paid qb. I used to love Drew, but he is not worth that kind of money. Additionally, now there is a rumbling of a holdout, because he hates the franchise tag. What did he expect them to do, let him go? I had so much respect for him, but have found out that is just another money grubbing ingrate. Has he forgotten that the Saints were the only team willing to give him a starting qb salary after his injury. Has he forgotten that it was only with the Saints that he has compiled NFL record setting numbers.
Additionally, as the Saints official conscience and teamleader, why has he made no statement on this scandal. He had to have know it was going on. But he says nothing.
I, now, know the proper term...disillustioned. I think the Saints need to think about trading Brees. I think they ought to trade him and enter the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, because I think he will be a better answer than Brees. Brees is tainted by this scandal and Peyton, who was a victim of GW, could be a positive healing force. It would be nice to have Peyton back in NO.
I'm thinking with the tag on him, Brees could command 2 firsts and 2 seconds with one of the seconds dependent on Brees signing a long tem deal. We could squeeze some more, if the first first is not in the top ten picks.
I don't know all the details of what is going on, but I do know the Saints cannot afford to keep a pouting qb.
