New Orleans has turned on Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees picked the absolute worst time to get back on his soapbox and criticize protesters like Colin Kaepernick for disgracing the American flag and the country as a whole. Not only have teammates and players turned on the future Hall of Famer, but the fans he holds so dear aren't above letting him hear it. During a recent George Floyd protest in New Orleans, a chant of "F*** Drew Brees" echoed throughout the Crescent City.

Just a few days ago, Brees was a god in New Orleans. Today, he'll have to work overtime just to gain back the respect of the fanbase that supported him all these years amid a Super Bowl run and countless record-setting moments.

Brees tried his best to do some damage control with a lengthy apology posted on social media earlier this morning. While he did seem sincere and contrite, that doesn't mean everyone in the Saints fanbase or in the NFL will be willing to forgive those remarks.

Brees built the Saints into something respectable on the strength of his ultra-accurate arm and leadership, but all it took were a few comments to put a dark cloud over what could be his final NFL season.
