Both New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said Friday they do not believe the team's reputation for physical play has made it a target of scrutiny by NFL officials. The topic arose this week after Saints safety Roman Harper was fined $15,000 by the league for a late hit on Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith in the end zone, and the Saints also drew two roughing-the-passer penalties that kept alive Carolina touchdown drives. In particular, the first of those roughing-the-passer calls on New Orleans defensive end Turk McBride seemed dubious.

Harper offered no apology for his blatant shot on Smith, and Smith, long a thorn in the Saints' side and a famously brash player, said he neither requested nor expected one. Still, the mini-brawl the play set off between divisional opponents, who will face each other again on New Year's Day, raises the possibility the NFL will be on the lookout for lingering rancor.

Payton insisted he saw no correlation between the Saints' aggressive style and the rash of penalties. "There's specific plays you point to, but I don't think so," Payton said.

SP may be diplomatic - I ain't. The zebras suck. They need to stop sucking on donkey dongs & call the games fairly!
