Drew Brees Signing: Prediction Results and Voting

Everyone's predictions about the Drew Brees signing made this past Monday have finally been tallied, analyzed and formatted accordingly. They can be found in their entirety following the jump.

This was a tricky contest to judge so I'm including in the poll those participants who got at least one of their two predictions correct. The winner will be determined by you. When analyzing predictions, I used Chris Mortensen's tweet at 12:34pm CST as our basis.

Look over the results then go ahead and cast your vote for the best predictor. The poll will be open for 48 hours, closing Tuesday afternoon at 11am CST.

nanvinnie 1. July 13th, after 6pm (central)

5.5 Hours Off

Comp 1. Friday the 13th will be a great day for the saints. Story breaks about 9:00 AM EDT. Drew signs long-term contract.
2. Drew tweets it himself (as he is leaving Sean Payton’s house – last contact for the season). Of couse the fact that the Papa John’s pizza deliver guy looks uncanningly like SP is pure coincidence!

No

NanDat 1. Friday the 13th at 2:00 (central)
2. That little troll at Fox, Jay Glazer, will tweet the first announcement.

1.5 Hours Off

DrewBreesManCrush 1. deal gets done on 7/13/12
2. drews twitter is the worst, unless you are waiting patiently for a job opening at jimmy johns… broken by somebody nationally either mort or shefter on twitter… (almost all respect lost for local sports media)

Yes

Yes

Grumps

He will sign this Friday. Friday the 13th. It will be a bad luck day for the rest of the league.

Adam Schefter.

Yes

No

Stilljreming

1) Drew does not sign before 7/16, he does sign his franchise tag though since he knows that the Saints will likely not tag him again next year or else pay him a horrendous fortune!

2) Chris "Mort" Mortensen breaks the no-news on July 16th at 8AM ET on Mike and Mike!

No

Yes

Ship

1. Friday the 13th at 13:13-13", roughly 5 seconds before he stumbles at the door threshold of a Jimmie John’s and breaks his leg.

2. First reported on Twitter by a pedestrian walking by Brennan’s with a new Jimmie John’s banner being placed across the front and someone screaming in the doorway

45 Minutes Off

No

falconswillrise July 13th, 2012 between the hours of 11AM and 4PM
Story breaks an hour after the signing, by a someone not named Drew Brees, not on Twitter, a deal this big is too grand for Twitter.

Yes

No

Dan Kelly

1. When? Sometime after noon Eastern on Monday, July 16th.

2. Who? Some other media outlet. Either Adam Schefter or Mort get’s the scoop.

No

Yes

Just 'Nother Day
Drew signs the contract on Friday, July 13, 2012 at 1500 local (N.O.).

Drew will announce via twitter (which I hate) but it will be vague and not well worded and cause multiple head explosions on the Gulf Coast

2.5 Hours Off

No

rustdog74 1. Drew signs when he damn feels like signing, just kidding, he will sign a long term contact July 15th at 7:00 p.m. He will then celebrate by eating a Jimmy John’s sandwich and drinking a miller high life or a mickey’s big mouth.
2. I’m sure some yahoo from one of the big networks will break the news. How about the guy adam schefter via twitter?

No

No

SaintsFanMD Say about 10:00 p.m. central time on the 16th. I also think Glazer will be on top of the first announcement via twitter
