This post made more sense before the Seahawks turned this from a game into a joke, but bear with me.
Last year around this time, two members of the Seattle Seahawks secondary were threatened with suspensions for violation of the league’s PED policy at the same time. In an attempt to get to the bottom of this strange coincidence, I whipped out my Sherlock Holmes hat and did my best to figure out who was behind this mystery. The result of my investigation was unambiguous:
There’s no doubt in my mind that Brees is trying to trick the Seahawks while they’re down.
Just one problem: while I could easily explain how I knew Brees was involved, and exactly how he managed to pull it off, I could only speculate as to his motive. My best guesses were that Brees was either trying to collect a two year-old bounty or seeking revenge for Beastquake.
This year, two members of the Seattle Seahawks secondary were again threatened with suspensions for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy — and of course, that announcement came out the very week the Seahawks were preparing to face down Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.
I’ll let you draw what conclusions you will. But if Brees was looking forward to picking on Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane — whoops!
Shut up, Drew Brees. Go Hawks
