Saints coach Payton finds inspiration on why not to res

Charleston Daily Mail - Sports - Saints coach Payton finds inspiration on why not to rest players*


After watching what happened with the Giants playing the Patriots in Week 17, when the game ended you felt the Giants had done something that served them well,'' Payton said. "Before they think about changing rules (on reseeding playoff teams), ask the coaches what they would choose, resting players or going for the momentum. It changed with me. Now, I think I'd play to win and not rest my players.

"Momentum going into the postseason is worth more, seeing what the Giants did.''

The reseeding proposal never got to a formal vote Wednesday before being withdrawn.

"If you win the division,'' Payton said, "I think you've got to play a home playoff game.''

Re: Saints coach Payton finds inspiration on why not to

I agree with Payton on this. I know you are going to have some years when you have a 9-7 team at home against a 10-6 team, but oh well. Winning the division is a major accomplishment that should go rewarded with at least one home game in the playoffs. I am glad the NFL decided not to mess around with this one. Right now their formula is pretty good with the way they seed playoff teams. No need to over complicate things.
