Yep, I'm tired of hearing about Brees and the decision that Dolphins doctors and ex-Coach Nick "the quitter" Saban made concerning not signing him. Grow a couple, Saban, and admit that you were part of the mistake made.

PFT wrote:
“Don’t forget, when I was the coach of the Miami Dolphins, doctors failed Drew Brees on a physical,” Saban recently told reporters regarding the fact that Alabama linebacker Dylan Moses went undrafted due to a knee injury. “From that time on [Brees] made about 14 Pro Bowls, won a Super Bowl, passed for I don’t know how many thousands of yards. So I guess they make mistakes, too.”

So let’s make sure we understand this. Saban, a micromanaging control freak, wanted Drew Brees. But team doctors weren’t comfortable with his surgically-repaired shoulder. And Saban just shrugged, unwrapped another Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie, and said, “Let’s give up a second-round pick for a mobile quarterback with three torn ligaments in the most important joint on his body.”

A football coach with full control over football operations controls everything. If he has any doubts about the medical opinions he has received, if he has any inkling that his own doctors are being unreasonably cautious, he can get a second opinion. Or a third one. He can keep hiring doctors to comment on whether a given player can play until the coach finds someone who will say what he wants.

Indeed, Saints coach Sean Payton found a doctor who passed Brees on a physical.

It’s hard for a small man to do big boy things. Kudos to the insane amount of success he has had with Bama but his gimmick will never translate to the NFL. He won’t try again.

I think we should move on from talking about this. Happened what, 16 years ago?
With the teams we have had, Brees might have been one of what feels like 20 quarterbacks in our dismal franchises attempt to fix this team. What oline would y’all want Brees behind? Exactly.

We got the best one, Mitch. Sit back and enjoy the ____ show (I left a blank for everyone to fill in with their favorite personal adjective).

:haha

Us Dolphin fans love to live in the past Coots.
Still day dreaming about Marino and 1972.

And we still can't stand Pete Carroll for the "choke sign".
