Saints News, 1/15/14: Happy Birthday Drew & Baylen Brees!

New, comments

Drew turns 35 and Baylen turns 5 today. I hope the Saints' current star QB and the Saints' future star QB both have great days today. In other somewhat sad news, Himself (aka MtnExile) wrote yesterday that he is shutting down his Who Dat Social Club due to his disgust with NFL management. Please go over and read his article that I have linked first for you below. As always, he provides an excellent and thoughtful read. If he stops posting articles over there, I hope he will occasionally return here and share his wisdom as he once did.

On the status of Gregg Williams with the Tennessee Titans - ESPN
Williams is a fan favorite to a level that’s incomprehensible to me. On The Midday 180 in Nashville, we took a ton of calls since the season ended about whether Williams would return as the team’s coordinator. Once Munchak was fired, some of those people even called for Williams as head coach.
