Drew Brees: An Extra Moment in Sports
An Extra Moment with Kenny R
New Orleans is not your typical city with an NFL franchise.
This franchise is as part of the local culture as gumbo and the French Quarter, as local as the cajun flavor. Thanks to the Saints the people of NOLA were able to find something to be proud of after the disaster and tragic monster that was Katrina.
The captain of the Saints is Drew Brees. Not only did he guide the team to a Super Bowl and continues to establish records on the field, but has become a driving force in the rebuilding of the city post hurricane Katrina. He has embraced this role.
Now he is wrapped in a contract negotiation that we believe has gone wrong. The GM of the Saints has said that Drew Brees is good, not great. That is a slap in the face of a man that took a franchise that was an ongoing joke.
Yes, the NFL is a business and players are let go and traded all the time. However, it would do good to the franchise and the ownership to take a look at what Brees has meant for the team and a city that almost lost the franchise and the soul of its culture. We can help demonstrate how valuable Drew is if you take An Extra Moment.
