If I didn’t love me some Ellen DeGeneres, I’d be totally jealous that she gets to count Drew Brees among her circle of besties. I mean, the dude is on this show so much, he may as well be a co-host. Not that I’m complaining or anything. I LOVES ME SOME DREW, too!!

Call in the cavalry boys, the Saints are coming to town.
According to most, the 49ers are going to need to pull out all the stops just to survive on Saturday afternoon at Candlestick Park.
San Francisco will enter its first playoff game in nine years as underdogs to the New Orleans Saints. The odd part is, the 49ers are at home. According to beyondthebets.com, they are the...
Beating Drew Brees and the Saints requires brains as much as brawn. The Niners plan to use both in their division-round playoff showdown with New Orleans, writes Peter King.
The New Orleans Saints right now appear unstoppable.
In brushing aside the Detroit Lions Saturday night in a wild-card playoff victory, the Saints’ jazzy offense was in perfect rhythm in both its passing and running games. Now the Saints march into Candlestick Park this Saturday to meet the 49ers in a divisional-round NFC playoff game.
Yet the 49ers are taking solace in the fact...
The building blocks for long term success are in place.
