New Orleans Saints: Pay Drew Brees, Pay The Man

drew brees
Drew Brees will skip offseason workouts.

Brees doesn't want to lose leverage in contract talks with the Saints by giving in on offseason workouts. The Saints are in danger of losing guard All-Pro Carl Nicks, No. 1 receiver Marques Colston and deep threat Robert Meachem in free agency.

Without a first-round draft choice thanks to the Mark Ingram trade, the Saints will probably lose draft choices because of the bounty scandal.


The Saints should pay Brees and they should have worked it out before this season. He came to a nowhere franchise and made it somewhere. He put in the hours and the study to bring the Super Bowl title here.

He helped put a city back together after the storm and you improved the Saints' value a lot. He showed up for work every day, every week, season after season. He started and shined in every game since you got here in 2006.

He made living in New Orleans and playing for the Saints seem like an honor, and people were depending on you.

He will be expected to get the franchise over the bounty scandal.
And  he will.

Pay the man!


The NFL won't penalize the Saints any more than team fines, individual suspensions and loss of draft picks, reports Pro Football The report dispels rumors of possible vacated games and loss of franchise tag which was rumored.

Saints owner Tom Benson is worth $1.1 billion which ranks him 375th among U.S. billionaires. He ranks No. 1,075 among world billionaires, according the Forbes new list of billionaires.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
