Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt had a pretty good soundbite on Thursday when asked why he was confident that Drew Brees would be reporting to the Saints before missing anything too significant.
“What else is he going to do, he can’t sing or dance.”
Vitt’s words made their way to the quarterback and he crafted a response to Vitt on Twitter that makes you think Brees might have a future on American Idol or Dancing With the Stars.
“On the contrary Joe Vitt, you have obviously never seen me karaoke! As for dancing, @LanceMoore ain’t got nothing on me”
The Saints obviously don’t care much about how well Brees can sing or dance, they just want him to be their quarterback. While Brees’ response doesn’t tell us anything about when he might be back in that role, the joking nature of the back-and-forth is a sign that there isn’t much animosity between the two sides. As long as that remains the case, Vitt’s confidence about Brees showing up for work seems to be accurate.
When exactly Brees might show up remains unknown. Given all the reasons both sides have to reach an agreement about a shared future, though, it remains difficult to believe in any other outcome.
