According to this description of Drew Brees's new book, it was never going to happen. Sean Payton became the Saints head coach after the 2005 season, and Bill Parcells was our head coach in 2006. Translation, there was no way Payton was going to be our head coach, at any time, unless Jerry drains his bank account in order to pay off the Saints. We all know that the bank account is for spoiling the grand children. As for the read, it is a good summary of how Drew Brees decided to play for the Saints.
