Brees' anthem comments draw backlash from teammates, others
NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees was sharply criticized by fellow high-profile athletes, including some of his own teammates, on Wednesday after the Saints quarterback reiterated his opposition to kneeling during the national anthem. In an interview with Yahoo, Brees was asked to revisit former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's 2016 protest of police brutality against minorities, in which Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem before games. I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States, Brees began, adding that the national anthem reminds him of his grandfathers, who served in the armed forces during World War II. Brees has said he supports those protesting police brutality but that he does not see the national anthem as the proper forum for that. In 2017, Brees participated with teammates who knelt before the national anthem, but then stood in unison when the anthem was played.

Brees-less Saints brace for high-powered Cowboys
NEW ORLEANS - NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Saints cornerback Eli Apple suggests that the high-powered Cowboys could bring out the best in a New Orleans defense that has been off to a shaky start. Now Prescott will try to help the Cowboys win in the Superdome for the first time since 2009, when they ended the Super Bowl-bound Saints' 13-game winning streak. Since coach Sean Payton and Brees arrived in New Orleans in 2006, the Saints usually have been a top-five offense. But with Bridgewater under center for seven of 12 quarters, New Orleans ranks an uncharacteristic 21st in yards per game (339.7). The Saints sacked Prescott seven times, one of few flattering statistics for New Orleans in a 13-10 loss at Dallas last November.
