This had to have been the hardest “easy” deal there ever was.
Brees now makes 100 million dollars over the next 5 years, 40 in 2012. It’s a good thing it happened today, since reports of Peyton Manning’s 16000 sq. foot, 4.5 million dollar home were probably making Drew jealous. But now he can buy 9 of them!
Looking at it from a football standpoint, both sides pretty much had to do what they did. Brees had to risk his reputation by angling for more money, and the Saints absolutely had to pay him. Now they just need him to perfect telepathic communication with Sean Payton and the Saints will be a-okay.
So close to August, guys! Football (and regular posting from us) is right around the corner! Here’s what you can expect as we get closer to kickoff:
1.) Monday Morning Jerkface!
2.) Your Favorite (Player, Coach, Team, Hairstyle, DUI bust) Sucks!
3.) Fantasy Football perspectives (and D&D perspectives for the other kinds of nerds)!
4.) Tons of new features!
5.) Nate applies for a press pass for the Superbowl!
6.) Nate gets declined and cries outside the Superdome in the rain!
7.) Ben is going to drunk post a lot!
8.) New writers????
All that and more as we get ready for the 2012-13 football season. As Bart Scott would say, “SANTA CLAUS IS REAL Y’ALL.”
And “CAN’T WAIT.” That too.
