Drew Brees' Drug Test Weekend


Drew Brees has visions of playing professional football long past many of his peers, but those pigskin daydreams apparently didn't factor in that a longer career would also push him to the top of the NFL's PED watch list. Over the weekend, Breesus came back down to Earth when he was selected for two random drug tests.

Harry Connick Jr. is known for being harsh with contestants on American Idol, but Breesus appeared on the show to preach forgiveness to Connick.

Stephen Colbert was graced by Breesus on yesterday's episode of The Colbert Report, and the Saints' humble quarterback had some Super Bowl advice for his peers Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson.

Drew Brees to Have Familiar Protectors at Pro Bowl


Sadly, Drew Brees isn't gearing up for the Super Bowl. But the Saints' exalted QB will still be calling signals this week and wearing the C on his shoulder. Brees was picked first by 49ers great Jerry Rice as a team captain for this weekend's Pro Bowl.

Saints' Season Ends With 23-15 Loss to Seahawks


While the scoreline was much closer and the defense fought valiantly, the New Orleans Saints left Seattle Saturday night with a dejected feeling that is likely not that different from a month ago.
