Sure, you would have stayed. Not.
Ummmm. That ranks right up there as one of the dumbest comments I've heard (from a coach, anyway - there are plenty of dumb comments in an election year!!!). It was *his* decision not to sign Brees. And when he left, he made statements about not liking how he was treated, particularly by the press. And his wife was making comments about having felt like a prisoner in Miami.
I heard something this morning about our old dear pal, Nick Saban. Seems that he was "possibly" interested in coming back to coaching in the NFL if the right situation presented itself. A situation that included a top-notch QB.Then I heard a quote attributed to him, from September: "If the Dolphins had signed Drew Brees, I'd still be coaching in Miami."
