Football Nation presents the sixth episode of “Monday Morning Huddle”. In this week’s episode, host, Dave Holcomb puts in his final thoughts on QB Drew Brees’ huge contract and the backlash New Orleans could go through, whether the pressure QB Tony Romo receives in a Cowboys’ uniform is warranted, and whether Quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Joe Flacco are the most overrated men under center in the NFL. This episode features both the ‘Player in Focus’ and the ‘Fourth and Long’ segments.

BEST OF MAXIM
Drew Brees got paid in the biggest way as he became the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL. Now, the Saints quarterback will have to watch his back. Following Bountygate and entering the season without the services of head coach Sean Payton, Brees and the rest of the Saints for that matter may have a pretty big bull's-eye on their backs.
To be kind, the New Orleans Saints have not had the greatest offseason in the history of the National Football League. This might rank as one of the worst off-seasons a team has ever had. It certainly would be in the top ten of bad off-seasons in the history of the NFL.

So far Martin Mayhew and the rest of the Lions’ front office have been able to weather Phase 2 of the Millen effect. Phase 2 of the Millen effect again is having to deal with the monetary aspect of the first round draft picks once their rookie contracts are up. For instance they’ve succeeded in locking down the best wide-out in the game long-term in Calvin Johnson while holding...
Big Ten Network has been helping us pass the long offseason by airing their lists of the Top Ten quarterbacks of past decades. The most recent installment I saw was the 1990s. The 1980s and 2000s (2000-2009) have already aired (check the lists out here). To make the list a quarterback had to play at least two seasons in the decade.

+ The window to win a Super Bowl is smaller than fans realize. There are teams like the Patriots, Steelers and Peyton Manning-led Colts whose window seems to remain open at all times. But they’re the exception. Thus, the Saints had no choice but to pay Drew Brees what...
