Now that I have a chance, I wouldn't be myself if I didn't thank everyone for their support.

Favorite comment thus far on the blog: "I'm going to buy Matt Ryan a fanny pack. He needs a pocket."

I didn't get nothing done with this break. Well, back to the film room.

Maybe I said this wrong!! But my bday is tomorrow... I'll be in the dome come support.... Wouldn't want to be no other place...

I know the saints fans are ready and know its going to be packed just for a preseason game and it's my bday.. Go saints...

Brittany and I are proud to say that Callen Christian Brees was born yesterday evening in New Orleans. Mama and baby boy are happy & healthy

Got meetings tonight.. Going over the game for tomorrow we are exited to be in the dome tomorrow...

Can't wait to sleep in my own bed again... Last day of the training camp blues! Anyone excited about being back in the Dome tomorrow night?
