In what can only be described as a surreal NFL moment, there was Howard Mudd, former longtime offensive line coach with the Indianapolis Colts, standing next to New Orleans coach Sean Payton during a Saints training camp practice Sunday in Metairie, La.


"Seems kind of strange, doesn't it?" Mudd said late Sunday in a telephone interview from the Saints' training facility. "But it's true.''

Six months ago, Mudd and Payton were on opposite sidelines in South Florida for Super Bowl XLIV when the Saints handled the Colts 31-17.
Now, bosom buds? Well, not exactly. Temporary colleagues is more like it.
Mudd, 68, retired from coaching following the Super Bowl loss after an NFL career that spanned more than three decades. He served as the Colts' O-line coach since 1998.

Mudd and Saints offensive line coach Aaron Kromer were together for a coaching clinic in Cincinnati in May, at which time Kromer approached Mudd about serving as a temporary consultant with the Saints.

"He asked me to come down and spend a little time, and I said, 'OK,' " said Mudd, who first advised the Saints during the offseason, then returned for training camp. "I'll only be here a couple of days. That's it."

That is pretty good news. I know it is only for a couple of days. But I feel sure ALOT of notes will be taken during those few days.

Payton is definitely O line motivated. What is the O line coaches name? I can't remember. He's been doing a good job since he got here a couple of years back. (if I remember correctly) The O line is certainly a strength that can get even better.
