03:37 PM ET 10.11 | Just a day after Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita said that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell abused his power with the discipline in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, Saints quarterback Drew Brees is making the media rounds and speaking out and echoing the statements made by Fujita. Brees appeared on NFL AM on the NFL Network and ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning today. During those appearances, Brees continued to sound off on the NFL commissioner. "I agree with everything Scott Fujita said in his statement," Brees said. "I thought it was a strong statement, but certainly very true."

So, he hasn't changed his position since the same thread this morning?

Well, at least we can't accuse him of waffling.

I agree--but I guess if you want to play for NO, you have to prove whose side you are on. I think he has done enough of that now, and can just be quiet.

Drew: Your popularity-meter just took another hit. What, do you sit in on the same PR classes as __________ [fill in the name of your favorite sports buffoon]?

My sentiments exactly. Shut the f - - - up.

I still think at some point this will get into court, and then all the slime gets exposed when the witnesses get called.

Hell, the depositions alone should be great theater.

You may be right. If so Brees should really quit talking about this or he'll end up looking like more of a fool than he already does. He sure is spending all the good-will capital he had built up over the years. He should have kept his mouth shut from the get go.

Brees did a good deed asking his HC Sean Payton to be there when he sets the TD record

That was a good thing, I sort of liked the irony in the fact that the record breaker was thrown to Henderson who wear number 19

I heard they had two very reliable people in the know spill the beans on this, not just one. The evidence was there. The NFL brought in outside legal experts to listen to and review the evidence presented and both concurred this took place.
Only after that did the NFL hand down the suspensions. The NFLPA tried to counter that Goodall had no authority to suspend these guys, not that a bounty didn't occur.

PS, if these slugs just accepted their crimes and did the time it would be over with. Vilma is the one who is fighting all this so it doesn't mar his chances for the hall.

Roger Goodell is now, and has been since he became Commissioner, RUINING the NFL. He DOES abuse his power and will likely result in major backlash one day.

With Goodell at the helm, the NFL will soon be the NFFL (National FLAG Football League). Does this guy ever play real football? Is he aware that it is a contact game? Every year more and more rules taking it closer to NFFL!!

Get over it, Brees can say what ever he wants.
