Brees doesn't get a Cadillac, does go to Disney World

Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Drew Brees will shout, “I’m going to Disney World,” in a TV commercial, and he’ll be at Disney World today.

But while he will be getting that customary perk for the Super Bowl MVP, he won’t be getting another. Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com reports that Super Bowl MVPs no longer get a Cadillac.

For much of Super Bowl history, the MVP has received his choice of Cadillacs. But the auto industry bailout led to car companies taking on a lower profile, and Cadillac dropping out of MVP sponsorship is just one example of that.

Disney World, however, is still a go: Brees is scheduled for a ticker-tape parade there today.

  1. Maybe it is the fact that certain QB named Tom made a huge deal out of getting the exact one he wanted, and I believe caused much frustration for the company.
    Not too worry I am sure any car dealer in NEw Orleans would provide Brees a car in heartbeat. All he would have to do is ask.

  2. Considering how much of an undesirable high profile Cadillac products assumed during the Tiger Woods debacle, I can’t fault Government Motor’s decision too much here. As Oprah Winfrey found out to her chagrin, there’s no such thing as a “free” car – insurance, gas, maintenance, garaging, and everything else become unwelcome added expenses to the “benefactor”. If you ever want to give me a “free” car, don’t – just give me the estimated retail value in cash and call it a day..

  3. Why would Brees want a Cadillac? He just won the Super Bowl, not a Bocce tournament at the old folks home.

  4. It really is unfortunate that these overpaid players no longer receive a FREE car to add to their collection.

  5. Somebody ought to hook him up with a Toyota. Because like their defective cars, once he got going, he kept going and didn’t stop.

  6. WTF No Cadillac?
    With all of the money Brees will make from more endorsements he can buy several of them if he wants to.
    I am not a Sainst fan but, congratulations to The Saints and their fans. The Saints played great all season and deserved to win it all!

    Yeah, because it would be real classy to be a pro athlete making millions of dollars a year to ask a dealership for a free car. Come on man!

    Note of interest on Super Bowel ads–NO American car companies had ads–
    um i vividly remember seeing a dodge commercial

  9. Where is Obama when we actually need him. He needs to have Congress hold hearings on getting Cadillac back as a sponsor!

  10. They delivered it to Peytons house by mistake, Cadillac called and asked him to drive it over to Drews when he is visiting Archie in New Orleans.

  11. I remember John Riggins winning the MVP Award and getting a Firebird. I don’t think Cadillac has been the sponsor for “much of the Super Bowl’s history”; rather it was GM.

  12. “I know the Cadillac XLR is just an overpriced Corvette, but I still want one.”
    You’ve got to be kidding. ROFL

  13. He’s not worried, he can just ask for majority ownership of the entire company when he signs his new contract in a couple months.

    dodge is Italian.
    No, Dodge is an American car company and subsidiary to Chrysler. Chrysler is affiliated with Fiat, an Italian auto manufacturer. But Fiat does not own Chrysler or Dodge.

  15. you mean Brees wasn’t being paid before………..
    if Peyton deserves to be the highest and he lost the Super Bowl, what do you give the winner.
    I’m calling Bill Polian for the answer.
