"I’d like to thank the Chargers organization for giving up on Drew Brees and Darren Sproles!" - Every New Orleans Saints fan in America


While it is impossible to say how well the Saints would be able to do without former San Diego Chargers Brees or without Darren Sproles who showed his immense speed and versatility this year, logic would tell us the obvious—“don’t even go there”.
For starts, Brees completed 2011 regular season with the NFL single-season records of 5,476 passing yards, 468 completions and 71.2% completion percentage.

With Brees at the helm, the Saints now hold the NFL record for yards gained in a season with 7,474.

Due to Brees, the Saints now hold the record for the best completion record for passes-- 71.3% of their passes (472 of 662)

Brees has 13 300-yard passing game for the season and ended the season seven consecutive 300-yard games.

As far as Sproles, whom the Saints acquired this year, the former San Diego running back had a season total 2,696 all-purpose yards, an NFL single-season record.

Because of Sproles and a powerful running team, Brees was able to mix up his play selection and maintain the throttle on the offensive explosion.

so, thanks San Diego

  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

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.
