The blogosphere has been circulating a report that Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis insinuated that Drew Brees is not a "great" quarterback, and is instead a "very good quarterback."
These reports sounded suspect, at best. So, I contacted Loomis himself.
Here is the reply I got from Loomis: "It is stupid to suggest that I think Drew is anything less than a great player."
The Saints and Drew Brees continue working on long term contract extention ahead of Monday's franchise tag designation deadline.
