Brees and Saints Still Miles Apart-- I'd Shed a Tear if I Cared

It's bizarre how willing to gamble with franchise quarterbacks the NFL is. Look, maybe the Saints know something we all don't, perhaps internally they think their successes at the position are more due to their system, rather than Brees himself; though that seems far fetched. Meanwhile over in Indianapolis the Colts still haven't inked Andrew Luck while they barter over offset language, good show showing faith in your future... but I digress.

Today the NFLPA, representing Brees had grievance hearing with the NFL as he moves towards playing for the franchise tag in 2013, the third of his career. Concurrently, the NFLPA sent a letter to comissioner Roger Goodell requesting a league probe into the Saints organization to determine whether the team are acting in good faith with the QB. It's their contention that perhaps this is some sort of punishment for Brees putting his name on the suit last year against the NFL during CBA negotiations.

Granted, that's a little hard to believe, but why would the New Orleans Saints decide to screw around (for lack of a better term) with their only source of consistency, and stability in a hugely tumultuous time for the organization? Heck, maybe they want to emulate Indianapolis, destroy their season, and find their QB of the future, but Peyton Manning's situation last year is far different to what Brees is going through now.

C'est la vie, it's not our problem... even if it's in our back yard. Their in-fighting can only lead to the Panthers' gain.
