Kristian: Saints-Brees getting ugly?
Had to get this out: Do we really think this is going to get ugly? Then again, who thought it was going to go this far, with the Saints franchise quarterback going public about his contract dispute with the team.
Well, it won't get ugly. There is too much respect from both sides. However, it's reached a critical point. Clearly the best quarterback in the NFL (yep I said it) wants to be taken care of.
What about the team? What about that fluer de lis? What about what's best for the organization? Doesn't that have to be considered? Yes, indeed. Can't we make both parties happy? No doubt about it, we can.
Just about every member of the who dat nation is in Brees's corner. If you are, I only caution: you're cheering for laundry. You understand that right? The players come and go, and the team will be here forever. (Well at least through 2025.) I know what Drew means to this city, region and organization. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve it. I'm just saying I feel for the Saints and General Manager Mickey Loomis. How do you put a price tag on Drew Brees? Super Bowl MVP! The best player on your team? A team ambassador! A leader. The best Quarterback in the NFL. What's the price?
If that's the problem, or the question, then it's a tough one to answer. That's what Loomis and company have to decide, all the while doing what's best for the TEAM!
Tough spot right? The truth is, it's just another day at the office for Loomis. Want to be an NFL GM? It will get done. Team, team, team!
That's where I come from. You?
