    Drew Brees has tweeted the world that he is shocked wants to see an explanation from Sean Payton.

    The Saints are really screwed if Brees doesn't attending offseason practices and fully support the team going forward.

    I think the Saints have no choice now but to break the bank for him and give him Manning $$$.

    After they don't get him they'll say they "passed" on Brees.

    They can't even talk trade until he signs the tender, because they slapped the exclusive franchise tag on him, which means he's NOT free to negotiate with other teams.

    I understand that. He does appear to be very unhappy there in the past few weeks.

    Players can be let go for moral reasons. Can he leave the Saints because the team has been immoral? :)

    Tebow should have insisted on a morality clause for the Jests. :D

    Incidentally, this is my first post since the loss. I couldn't think about football until now, just too bummed. So, I'm back beatches...Get ready for my kindergarten-@ss lame questions again.

    I think you are misconstruing what he tweeted. He wants an explanation from the league of why his beloved HC, one of the finest men he's ever known, was suspended...

    This from the same clown who claimed no "real" knowledge of the program... Brees is a fraud, just like his HC. They all knew and they just assumed they would get away with it.

    agreed. I find this very aggravating. he doesn't want an explanation from his coach, he thinks he DESERVES one from the league. The great Drew Brees feels entitled to an explanation from the NFL as to why his team that is trying to end the careers of opponents was penalized this way.

    Wasn't he supposed to be deeply involved in the player's union and fighting for their safety and a bunch of other crap??

    He seems like a fraud now.

    Brees has always been a fraud in my mind. I'm almost sure he's the one who ratted out the Saints because he couldn't get his 23 million dollars.

    He's been acting like he is the Great Drew Brees ever since the San Diego incident, where he told anybody who could interview him at the time, that the Chargers would've been better off with him.

    I could careless about that gold-digger and what ever 'explanation' he feels entitled to.

    I'm sure that Brees will be interviewed in the days to come. We all saw the tweet. I agree that it could have been interpreted in different ways.

    I've just read the tweet, and agree with MoLewisrocks, I think he's demanding an explanation from the league, not from Payton. And well, it's another hint of his real personality, like the lockout negotiation in which he demanded the franchise tag exemption, and his reaction after being placed the FT.

    C'mon guys. Brees isn't a "fraud". He's upset over what's happened to Peyton and probably frustrated that he still doesn't have a new contract. He should have kept to himself but it's funny that some of you think this tweet makes him a fraud.

    Agreed. The tweet made him look like a high-and-mighty, spoiled, Little Lord Fauntleroy b--ch. Demanding the league explain the suspension? Can you imagine Brady doing that?

    I'll help, Mr. Brees: it's because your team conspired to do bodily injury to other men for pay, like thugs, and lied over and over about it to the league.

    Glad you're back. I've only posted a few times myself since early Feb., but with all that's going on it's hard not to get excited about next season. Now if we could just quietly lock up Welker, I will be good to go on all cylinders.

    Another possible interpretation is that Brees was assured that nothing was untoward by Payton, hence his somewhat odd earlier tweet where he claimed to be ignorant of the bounty program's "real" existence. In other words he had heard about it but Payton indicated that it was only a rumor and wasn't real. Now with the NFL hammering Payton for stonewalling and lying Brees is throwing another log on the fire looking for an explanation from Payton as to why he lied to him personally.

    Any way you look at it does little credit to Brees, he should have taken the Patriots players' approach and just kept quiet. It really does look like he is trying to exculpate himself from any dishonor, when the more honorable course is just keeping quiet. If you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all.

    I don't really follow the Twitter thing so I haven't seen/read it. I like Brees though, but not sure how to look at this one. He shouldn't have sent it out publicly. I know a lot of people will be seeing the saints in a different light now for a long while.

    The tweet doesn't show Brees to be a bad guy.

    It just tarnishes the halo of extra-special good guy he had, which was always based mainly on special New Orleans circumstances, with some underdog cred on the side.

    As noted above, the past year or so has been hard on that halo in several regards.

    If I were BB, I'd offer to give them back their 1st round pick this year, in exchange for their 1st round pick next year, straight up.

    That's going to be a lottery pick for sure.
