08:05 AM ET 05.17 | New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees took the occasion of a local radio show appearance to air some of his frustrations publicly. He told WWL radio that the "lack of communication" has been his biggest disappointment. "I would say more than anything, I guess, what's been a little frustrating on my end or disappointing is the lack of communication," said Brees, who remains unsigned but under the Saints' control because of the franchise tag. "There's always a back and forth when it comes to these negotiations. But I know we've reached out on quite a few occasions. And at times, I know I've been frustrated with the lack of response. ... I would just say there should be a sense of urgency and yet it seems like there's not."

Don't the Aints have enough problems without provoking Brees?

I'll be very interested to see what kind of product they put on the field this year.

The Saints should realize that when Creepy shows up at this hour of the morning to tell them to get their act together, that is some serious stuff.

It's not like they haven't had other things to deal with, but with that said, time to get Brees taken care of.

There's already been a run on the banks in Greece. Creepy in the morning is, well, kind of creepy.

that would be apocalyptic.

Maybe he should start attending the meetings for the defense. I hear there is a lot of communication going on there.

You'd be running for the bank too if you figured your euros were about to become drachmas

Yeah. Way to screw the middle class. The rich don't keep their money in banks earning a quarter of a percent. Government policy should encourage saving, not screw people over for trying to do just that.

Using "Greece" and "financial policy" in one sentence is a non-sequitur

A shame that Brees is having to wait like this- anyone else thinking there is going to be a real housecleaning in New Orleans soon? Hate to see it, but what else do ya do when you realize that there is chaos and negligence in your organization with little good coming in the future? I guess you go coach at Ohio State!
