We aren’t going to think that Drew Brees’ feelings towards NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has anything to do with the penalties the Saints faced or Head Coach Sean Payton’s suspension, this has to be rational. Right?

Peter King with Sports Illustrated recently sat down Drew Brees and Brees’ did not disappoint.

“Nobody trusts him. Nobody trusts him. I’m not talking about a DUI, or using a gun in a strip club, which are pretty clear violations,” Brees said. “I think there’re too many times where the league has come to its decision in a case before calling a guy in, and the interview is just a façade. I think now if a guy has to come in to talk to Roger, he’ll be very hesitant because he’ll think the conclusion has already been reached.”

Brees also expressed his feeling on missing head coach Payton.

“I don’t know. I think about it a lot. The hard thing is, your head coach is gone like that,” Brees told King as he snapped his fingers. “He’s just gone. We’re very familiar with coach [Joe] Vitt, very comfortable, and then he’s gone for the first six weeks. You take the two strongest presences in the building and remove them, and it’s like taking the president and vice president away from government. You had better have a pretty strong Congress, then. Our mentality is this: Move on. Find a way. We will. The teachings from your parents never leave you, and eventually you’re going to leave them, but you’re going to carry those teachings with you.”

Im really intrigued on how the Saints will play this season, with all these emotions they been going through, either they will let this be their motivation or their downfall.

Also with Payton’s picture hanging in the practice facility, I doubt the players can forget his face.
