I could care less about what the Saints as a team does, yet this thing with Brees is starting to tick me off for some reason. They offered him a contract to be the highest paid player in the league, and he turns it down for the sake of his greed? I know many say Brees lifted the Saints when he came there, but in reality, it was the Saints that lifted Brees, and the only team who was willing to give him a good contract after San Deigo bounced him out of town. (His first contract was 6 years 60 million dollars, plus the guaranteed money) Brees owed the Saints what good he did for them. And now, this cat is greedy, even after seeing what is happening to his team?
Yo, if I was the Saints owner and here I got bounty gate on my right, my star guard about to leave in free agency to my left, and now having to deal with my greedy QB wanting more moola.............
I would say it was time for extreme change and save face. I would release Brees on the spot, and go out a bring on New Orleans' son, Peyton Manning. Not only would it cost less to bring him in (instead of paying Brees), it would mean I could still strike up a deal with Carl Nicks before free agency starts. It would mean bringing in Reggie Wayne, and perhaps a healthy Moss. Can you imagine a team with Peyton, Wayne, 70% Moss, and Jimmy Graham? This is what I would do if I were the Saints owner. Ultimately, I don't care what they do, but what Brees is doing in the midst of everything that is going on is just plain unacceptable.
